I can’t afford to leave my day job.”
“I don’t have enough savings.”
“I love what I do, I don’t know how to make money at it!”
“I do my job, but I am not passionate about it!.”
Over the last ten years, I have heard many reasons why people don’t do what they are passionate about and it is usually tied to the fear of not being able to be financially stable. I am a living example of it myself!
In Mags Magazine, several people are featured who have taken the steps to live their passion by stepping outside of their comfort zone. Lisa Anna Palmer is a Certified ProActive Coach and a Certified Passion Test® Facilitator dedicated to helping people get back into the driver’s seat of their career and to help make the World a better workplace. Lisa speaks on the transformative power of Passion and the importance of connecting with your truth to create a career that will lead to a greater sense of meaning, joy and fulfillment in all aspects of your life.
Lisa began transforming her life after getting a wake-up call and being told by a Rheumatologist that she was “The Poster Child for Fibromyalgia” when she was only 34. A significant part of that transformation led to a career change: Lisa left her “secure” job with a federal employer to launch Cattelan Palmer Consulting in 2011. She is now enjoying life doing meaningful work she loves as she continues to build her thriving career/leadership coaching practice. Looking back at her experience, she claims that “When you go against purpose and passion, it causes psychological and emotional stress, which can have a serious impact on one’s health and well-being.”
