The World Needs Multipotentialites Like You
What do you want to be when you grow up? Well, if you’re not sure you want to do just one thing for the rest of your life, you’re not alone. In this illuminating talk, writer and artist Emilie Wapnick describes the kind of people she calls “multipotentialites” — who have a range of interests and jobs over one lifetime. Are you one?
Discover Your Purpose By Connecting The Dots
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward. You can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma whatever – because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path. And that will make all the difference.” Steve Jobs – 2005 commencement speech at Stanford University
When I Connected My Dots The Picture Became Clear
When everything felt random and disconnected—when my greater purpose was not obvious—it was time to sit down and do the work. To stop looking to the future for my answers and instead be present. To peel away the layers to find the dots. They were there all along, as they are for each of us.
The sacrifices my mother made when she left Mazatlan, Mexico for the U.S. were constantly in the back of my head. While studying at the University of Washington; I found myself panicking about life. Even with the financial advantages my parents provided me with, I was still at a disadvantage. As a first generation immigrant college student, it was up to me to figure out to navigate the education system in the United States. I didn’t know who, how or where to ask for the help I desperately needed. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to study or how to go about figuring out without acquiring more student loans.
It was then, I was able to make the decision to stop living a life bound to limitations and decided to follow my heart. I stopped chasing the societal idea of “success” and began to move my life onto an entirely new, more challenging, and more rewarding trajectory. I started thinking outside the box, setting goals for myself and focused my energy on one major change at a time.
I am passionate about connecting others with their strengths, so they can achieve their goals while living with purpose. I’ve successfully coached clients on a broad range of topics including business niche, finding a sense of purpose, self-love and empowerment, employment and career challenges, moving through fear, goal setting, transition and even book writing.
