What 80 per cent of people are missing… is passion for life, says Passion Test Facilitator & Life Coach, Shelley Tomelin.

There was a study done that found that 80 per cent of people are not passionate about what they do. They are unhappy, unfulfilled and unsatisfied with their lives. That means 20 per cent are doing what they love, happy and feel purposeful. Shelley says she was one of the 80 per cent a few years ago, living day to day, feeling like something was missing. She always thought they missed teaching important ‘Life things in school’. She came across The Passion Test at the local bookstore and felt she found what she was searching for to give her guidance and tools to help change her life around.

Shelley says,’ everyone knows Passion is the key to success, but for people who don’t know what their passions are, finding that passion can be a huge mystery.

Shelley tells people The Passion Test is a simple, yet powerful way to get clear about the five things that matter most to them and then a process to make those the priority in their lives. The process was created by Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood and described in their New York Times Bestseller  ~ The Passion Test – the Effortless Path to Discovering Your Life Purpose.  Shelley, who was personally trained by the Attwoods as a Passion Test Facilitator says, “When you are clear, what you choose to have show up in your life, will, and only to the extent you are clear.” The PT process is a simple, powerful process to get that clarity.

Shelley’s #2 passion is to empower thousands of people to live their dreams and shine in their lives. Shelley’s focus is on youth and young adults, inspiring and empowering them that their dreams are possible. Teaching tools to move them in that direction sooner than 20 years later.  Shelley believes more than ever, youth need to be connected to their passions. Shelley is not just focused on youth and young adults, she is open to working with anyone who feels like they are missing something in their lives. Once Shelley connected to her passions and kept implementing the tools she learned, her life has been an amazing enfoldment of events

Anyone wanting to go thru the Passion Test can contact Shelley at Shelley@YouAreMeantToShine.com. People can take a workshop with Shelley which takes you through the PT process in a fun group setting, or an individual 1-1 coaching which is more personalized, or you can take an in-depth, fun online program called  Passionate Life Secrets in the comfort of your own home.

To kick off 2013, Shelley is running a workshop for Teens January 19 at the Castlegar Complex, then an Adult workshop on February 16. You can call the Castlegar Rec. Centre for more information or contact Shelley. You can visit Shelley’s website to learn more about her work.   www.YouAreMeantToShine.com

Shelley is excited and looking forward to working in the community and connecting people to their passions, the things that mean the most to them and helping youth to connect to their passions so they can move through life, leading with their passions.
