Do you feel there is no purpose in the life you are living? Keep reading this article and I guarantee it will help you find your passion.
What is a passion?
A passion is something that moves you to feel a sense of purpose and fulfilment. It’s a thing we enjoy doing regardless of money or time. That thing you could do for hours and not even realise how long has passed. Think about it, what would you love to do all day if you could?
If you still don’t know what it is then try this:
I want you to imagine your most ideal version of tomorrow. If you hit all of your goals and all of your dreams came true this year, what would that day look like? If money was no object, and you have taken your holidays already, what would that day look like?
What are you doing?
Who are you with?
How does it feel?
Now write down and describe what would it take to get there. Literally write down that perfect day with as much detail as you can.
Now read it to yourself. What do you need to change to be one step closer to your dream day of doing the thing you love? By visualising that day, it will show us what is important, and what we love to do with our time.
You have just set a goal, a benchmark or what you deem as success. To every person, success is what YOU deem as success, not what anybody else might say. So now that we have a goal, what are you doing to achieve that goal? How can you start?
I love to help people discover the answers to these questions and more. Ask yourself the questions that you need to know the answers to. Hopefully you have now discovered what will make you happier, for by pursuing passions it equals happiness and fulfilment.
If you still aren’t sure what your perfect day with total fulfilment would look like then here are 9 steps that will help you discover your passion.
