How Harry Potter can help you go for your dream career…(Pics from Universal Studios in Hollywood)
Posted on May 18, 2018
Last weekend, I experienced “Harry Potter bliss.”
Yes, I did.
I went to Los Angeles for the Harry Potter Bachelorette Party of my friend, Stephanie. We went to the “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal Studios in Hollywood and re-watched several of the movies.
We had a blast!
I am a total Harry Potter fan.
I’m fascinated by this story.
In front of Hogwarts.
Happiness and silliness in front of the Hogwarts Express.
At Hogsmeade. Yes, I ate lots of candies and drank butterbeer!
As I was chatting with a friend about how JK Rowling, the author of Harry Potter, is such a great example of someone who followed her calling despite financial hardship, my friend asked:
What if JK Rowling did not follow her calling to write Harry Potter?
…What if she resisted writing it and let her fears take over?
…What would the world be like?
Imagine a world without Harry Potter… or without your favorite hero/heroine or book if you are not into Harry Potter.
Think about the books or stories that truly made a difference in your life and imagine your life without these books or movies.
How would that be like?
Really ponder that for a moment.
- a world without the inspiration that changed your life for the better.
- a world without the stories and characters you cherish.
It sounds pretty sad, doesn’t it?
Well, this is what is going to happen if you don’t go for your own career dreams.
Have you ever thought about that?
Have you ever thought about what the world and people around you are missing out when you hold back on your dreams and callings?
Really ponder that for a minute.
This is not just about you.
This is about the world and the difference you are here to make.
The world is missing out when you hold back on your dreams.
JK Rowling, through Harry Potter, touched millions of lives worldwide.
The idea of Harry Potter came to her while sitting on a delayed train from Manchester to London. She had this surge of inspiration and she conceived the story in her mind for the next four hours.
She was so compelled by the story that she wrote the first book despite being single mother on welfare and all the internal and external voices telling her she would never make money writing children books and she should find a more “practical” job.
She had no idea the book would become such a success. She wrote it because she was called to do it and she followed her calling.
Imagine.. if she did not follow her inspiration?
and gave away to fears, or so-called “practicality.”
Imagine a world without her talents being expressed?
How sad that would be.
How the world would be missing out.
So, here are my questions for you,
- Are you holding back from going after your dreams and callings?
- Are you letting the fears stop you?
- What is the world missing out from you holding back?
Be honest with yourself.
I’m doing this work because I did not let the fears stopped me or hold me back.
I had fears, LOTS of them, and I still do at times.
But I did not let them stop me.
What would you do if you did not let the fears stop you?
What would the world benefit from your presence and gifts?
If you (or people you know) are truly committed to finding the answers to these questions, I have a few slots available right now in my coaching practice for a few selected people serious about investing in themselves, and who are a do-what-it-takes kind of people.
I am selective about the people I work with. I only work with people who have a do-what-it-takes mindset. If this is you:
>> APPLY HERE.
I will be happy to discuss how I can help you clarify the work you are meant to do in the world, your calling.
In any case, my wish for you is to be inspired by JK Rowling’s journey.
To your brilliance,
P.S. Don’t deprive the world of your gifts. That would be such a waste.
Take action now.
>> APPLY HERE.
Only apply if you are serious about investing in yourself…
… and are a “do what it takes” kind of person.
