“Allow your passion to become your purpose and it will one day become your profession.”
I want to make these entries more interactive with you on the other end. So, that you can begin using my entries as resources to assist you moving forward in your goals.
Today, I want us to concentrate more on our passions and motivations. To be able to understand where you wish to proceed in life it is important to understand your deepest motivations. What is driving you to get out of bed and what makes you tick. How can I help you in getting the best in what you wish by unveiling core passions?
Some can say that passion is a strong emotion that can be barely controlled. Or even the suffering of Christ. Or the intense enthusiasm felt towards someone or something like health and fitness, relationships, learning and even a love of life.
Here are some questions to help you in understanding your passion and driving factors in your life. These questions will help you with your personal and professional life. If you carry out these questions out and also the wheel of life. You will be able to maximise your answers and then work towards your goals even more effectively.
· What are you most passionate about life?
· What do you do that would be the hardest to live without?
· What touches your heart to make you feel emotions like crying, laughter, love, inspirational, sad, discouraged
· List three things that are draining your energy? What is it? How do you feel? Can it be changed? And what are the time constraints? Then act upon it.
· What takes the most energy from you and what outcome is being achieved from this? Again, can this be changed, is it too much energy? Is it necessary? How would your life look with or without it?
· What do you want to fight for? What makes you so passionate that you would literally kill people for? How far would you go? How does it make you feel? And what would happen if you didn’t have it? How do you know you are fighting for the right thing? What are the repercussions of this action? Are you balancing out yourself when you are doing this?
· What satisfies you the most? How has it been fulfilling? Why did you feel that way?
· What is it in your life that gives you satisfaction and you feel most passionate about? How does that make you feel? What would happen if you without this? What can you do to ensure you can keep this going? What can you do when you know that you cannot do that task to still stay positive and upbeat?
· What are your accomplishments? What emotions did you feel? How much did they cost? What could you do to create more accomplishments? What did you learn from those accomplishments and do you think you could do it again? What is stopping you? What can you implement to create further accomplishments in the future?
Changing the World:
· If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be? How would you do it? Can you envision a better life without this? Or managing the task in a different way? What emotions would you feel? What would be the impact on others? Would it be decision led by you? Or a decision led by others and would it have the same impact led by someone else? What made you choose that object to change and is it possible with the resources you currently operating with? If not, what can you do about it?
· What issues do you truly care about in this world? How does it impact your life right now? What can you achieve by being passionate about these aspects in your life that will impact you and your family? How would it make you feel? Can you do anything about it? What constraints are in the way? Can you do anything about it? How would it make you feel?
When we spend time on ourselves, we will find that the universe suddenly shifts around us without us even realising it. When our perspectives change or re-align ourselves in what we truly believe in and take away the clutter and background noise. Then you will find that your vision will become open to so many more possibilities that you may not have possibly dreamed of. Our passions do not just revolve around our personal lives but even much so in our professional lives.
It is important for self-growth that we take time out of our busy schedules to put pen to paper and empty our brains. This way our brain will be able to re-focus and be aligned in where wish to take it. Our unconscious mind wants direct commands in how to move forward; so if we take away the fluffy stuff and create clear direction. We will be winners and others around us will be winners too! To be a true winner, one must invest in themselves but then also share that knowledge to others.
I wish you all a good day and I hope to bring you many more resources and tools to help you achieve contentment from within.
