Kathy Sanders – Preserve Your Passion

Passion is one of the most amazing emotions we get to experience during our lifetimes. It is strong when we feel weak. Passion won’t let us quit on our visions or dreams. It is the driving force that reminds us that moving forward is the only answer because not pursuing our passion just isn’t an option. However, sometimes that determination, combined with our intense desire to be successful can lead us toward the path of our own undoing. Why? Because, we become single focused at the expense of everything else that is important in our lives. We wake up one day to discover that the goal or dream that used to make our heart sing now makes us feel tired, weary and drained.
Protect your passion by learning how to avoid common pitfalls that can lead to burnout. We will cover short-term and long-term strategies to help you identify ways to; recognize the warning signs, create a schedule that supports a balanced lifestyle and setup a solid foundation for a successful future.
