How many times have we asked ourselves this question, what is my mission? am I on the right business, the right job?
Interestingly enough, many of the women that have been a guest on the #AsWomen show, have shared many profound experiences, a lot of them have been life changing, I remember a conversation that I was having with Martha Pap, where she shared with us that she was in a corporate job and a career that paid her well, but she didn’t feel that was very fulfilling and was searching for something more, her path her mission. This search took her all the way to India, where she learned different healing techniques. I have personally had the opportunity to have some incredible sessions, and have learned so much from her. When I asked her she told she feels happy and fulfilled helping others.
Another conversation with Trudie German, where she shared with me on the interview that she had one of those things called job, but was feeling a lot of anxiety, then she changed jobs and felt the same way. She started exercising and created an online gym, where she coaches others on their physical and weight lost goals, and she feel she is on her path.
Leslie Rivas was an incredible example of motivation and drive, even when some people where telling her to please get a job. She created a garment to help women with their menstrual pains, she patented it EYAA and it is now being researched and used in different part of the globe. What an incredible accomplishment.
A lot of us where also inspired by Paola Gomez and her mission to help others by creating a platform to reach newcomers through the arts. A human rights lawyer, a dreamer as she described herself. She saw the need to use art and creativity to help others, and was given a Human rights award, The Constance E. Hamilton award for her incredible work and dedication.
There are so many examples of women and their mission, every week there is a new womanprenuer that shared her story, her struggles, her challenges. These incredible women kept their vision and had the courage to keep going, in spite of the opinions of others or the lack of support. Not one of them told me it was easy, but felt that this was where their had to be.
In findnig our mission, I have learned that: we will be faced with challenges and a lot of questions. There will be mistakes and doubts, but there is also something more profoIund that will keep on bugging you, like a little voice inside of you guiding you. Maybe some of the activities you do, won’t feel as good anymore. Opportunities might come your way, as crazy as travelling to India, or the need to create a product that could help others. It’s up to you to move with this and give your mission the attention it deserves.
For a long time, I have felt my mission is to help others find their mission, and to promote that incredible vision with others, I have been fortunate and blessed to be able to have this platform to help you share your passion with others in #AsWomen.
Tell AsWomen what is your mission in Life, so we can support that vision, maybe it’s time to dig a little deeper and reflex on that.
