InSPIRITations: What do you ASPIRE to?
By Mitzi Reed

The last couple of years have been challenging for me both personally and professionally. I have had someone who has been relentless in her pursuit to destroy me and prevent me from living out my passion and purpose. I was at a point where I didn’t know what to do, where to turn, and on top of that, I had just turned 50 last year and was going through the midlife crisis part of my life and ready to just give it all up.
I thought I was all alone in what was happening in my life and thought how could I have been so foolish to trust this person. After speaking to several people, I found out I wasn’t alone, that some even had similar situations happen to them and they came out on the other end a victor and was more successful and happy than before. Some people even had worse situations happen in their life and they found a new purpose and passion in life. I aspired to be like them. I thought if they could do it, I can do it.
I realized that no matter what, no one can take your power away unless you allow it. I was not going to stand by and let this person destroy my life. So, that is when I started my inner journey on “what do I aspire to be?” What do I want to be when I grow up?”
That is when my new business ASPIRE Conferences, llc was born.
What do you aspire to? What motivates you? What is your purpose? What kind of behaviors do you need to have to live out your purpose? What action steps can you take this week that will lead you to live out your dream, your purpose, and your passion?
Is there someone that you admire that have the same qualities that you would like to have? Or are they doing something that you aspire to? How do they live out their passion? What specific things do they do that perhaps you can implement in your life?
Take some time and sit in solitude and ask yourself these questions. Your mind will try to convince you that it can’t be done, that you aren’t good enough, and other excuses. Listen to your heart instead.
Take control of your life and decide how you want to live. You can go after your dreams and achieve them. The only thing you have to do is take one small step each day towards your dreams. Once you make the choice that you are going to live a happy, fulfilled, and passionate life, nothing can stop you except yourself. Never give up.
I always aspired to be on stage with a large audience and inspiring people to live their passion and purpose and be empowered. I am now living that and I thank this person who is to this day trying to destroy me, because if it wasn’t for her, I would not have had lived out my true passion and purpose.
