Find your passion in life
I last wrote about passion,one of mine specifically and now want to explore how to find your
own passions. A few people know already what their passions are, however, many more do not.Passions are not just a single thing or a onetime event, it is much deeper than that. Passion can’t be faked, it isn’t something you can turn on and off, and it never fails to survive through anycriticism.
Where does Passion Come From?
Passion exists because of many combined experiences and it drives a
person (mind, bodyand spirit) to express, utilize, and hold true to core values with joy and enthusiasm. Passion isenergetic and lets difficulties be overlooked and ignored to help recognize the positive boundless potential in the people and events in our world.While that may sound great, finding your passions isn’t easy. Passion is often the cause of pain in people’s life so it gets buried and ignored with an attitude to simply get by in life instead of livingit to its fullest and taking the risks needed to continually follow your passions. Whether this is personal or professional, living with passion is often seen to be risky and may reveal truths aboutyou and your true values that are not always convenient from the mind’s perspective. Livingsafely can seem easier, however, it is certainly not as meaningful.
Finding your Passion
So, what are some of the ways then to find your passion? Here is one method I can recommendfor doing this on your own.
. First, you need to have some serious time to reflect and its best to do it alone with nodistractions. At least a couple of hours. Go somewhere you feel very relaxed, calm andcomfortable. Use a pen and paper and write out all of the major events in your life that youremember to be very positive and joyful. Then do the same for all the times you have feltcrushed, alone, sad, mad, and any other painful or hurting times in your life. Take some time for this, it can easily take 30 minutes or more. Pick events that relate to your career, education,childhood, family, friends, accomplishments, major events, fears, dreams, purchases, emotions,and spirituality.
