Debra joins me today to discuss what it takes to turn your passion into a career and explains why it’s not too late for anyone to do what fulfills them. She outlines how her “Ta-Da!” list could help you discover what you’re truly passionate about and describes how we can work through limiting beliefs by reframing. She also highlights the role of contemplative practices in discovering our life’s mission and underscores how we can reconcile responsibility, passion, and career.

“Doubt is something that stops us from moving forward. There has to be an overall belief that you can do it, and that what you believe you’re meant to do is meant for you.” - Debra Cooper
