What would it take for you to walk away from a lucrative career? The answer for Shonda Carter was a dream. It was walking away from comfort and towards her calling. It meant walking away from a career she had built and towards a minimum wage job at a television station. It took vision and it took lots of courage. For Shonda it was worth it. Now she speaks, she writes, she produces and directed. Shonda took control of her life and is living her life, her way and on her own terms.
Shonda, Jean and Karyn had an amazing discussion of what it takes to live your life on your own terms.
About Others – Naysayers aren’t necessarily ‘haters’. In fact, most of the time, they aren’t. They are people who love and care about you but who also worry and don’t want to see you hurt or disappointed.
About Courage – You’ll need if you want to blaze your own trail. The phrase ‘blaze your own trail’ says it all. Blaze implies fire. Fire can mean passion. Fire can also mean danger. Blazing a trail means pursuing your passion while preparing for the inherent dangers that come with it. Your own says that it is about you. Your calling. Your talents. Your destiny. Your trail is your way, proceeding along your own course.
About Passion – If you are passionate about what you want, if you have a passion for what you want to do, you can handle the naysayers and summon up the courage to make your dreams into a reality.
Listen to our supersized discussion of passion, following your dreams and dogs that steal milkshakes.
