Many of us at one time or another feel a lack of luster for life. Our career may become stale; our relationship may be so routine we stop acknowledging there was ever passion in it to begin with. It’s when we don’t take action and fuel our deepest desires that we begin to dwindle by simply going through the motions instead of engaging with what we love to do.
Living a Passionate Life Means Finding Your True Purpose In Life
Following your heart and being authentically you. Whether that takes the form of a baker, a candle stick maker or leaving your dead end job and going into business for yourself, creating your life is only possible with the passion that fuels it into action. Sometimes it could be a realisation of something bigger than you, to help others, to raise awareness for a cause.
It’s Easy To Travel The Well-Paved Path.
We may despise those unfortunate ‘surprises’ life can throw at us, being the victim of the latest downsizing at your company, relationship ending or just being caught in rat race day after day. When we choose to live a passionate-free life by simply going through the motions of our days, weeks and years, there’s a price to pay. We begin ignoring who we really are, who we’re really supposed to be and what we are truly capable of achieving.
One of My Passion in Life
The passion that is close to my heart is to help men with low self-confidence and esteem issues and create awareness by sharing and listening. Sometimes that’s all it takes, for someone to be there. This came to me, as a tragedy happened to a friend of mine, who believed that not existing in this world, was less painful.
It really fuels my soul when some of the guys I had taken the time and listen to them transform, conquering the world, believing in themselves with pride and confidence because they believe in themselves as much as I had believe in them. I’ve had first hand experience and understand the pain, confusion that is going through their mind.
Fork In the Road
We’ve all been faced with a fork in the road, but which direction you choose is entirely up to you. Choose the left, or right, or the middle road that you’ve taken time and time again. But, this time, as your life changes direction yet again, why not seize the day? Transform your thinking with a ‘can-do-it’ attitude. Focus on what you love to do, whether that’s being a great listener, inventing interesting soda flavors or creating children’s stories. Focus on the passion –the act of what you’re doing, and anything that you desire can be achieved. Walk along the road less traveled and you’ll find yourself living an exciting, uncharted life that only you can succeed at!
“In the universe, there are things that are known, and things that are unknown, and in between, there are doors.”
Take advantage of the opportunities before you to transform your passion into action. Trade in your passion-less life for a passionate filled one. Dare to dream beyond what your wildest imagination concocts. Begin recognizing the many opportunities that surround you day in and day out. Take advantage of that co-worker who is always looking for an investment opportunity and partner with him on your latest invention. Begin by waking up in the morning, thinking: “Yes! I can and will bring my dreams into action!” instead of “Another day, another repetitive day at the office.”
Take a dance class, finally begin writing that children’s book you’ve dreamt of, reach out to others in your local soup kitchen, travel to Indonesia or just trade in hours of watching sitcom reruns for being outdoors in nature. Whatever your idea of passion in life is, go there, sit with it and enjoy your life as you never have before. Wherever your passion lies, go to it, and leverage your current situation to the one you have dreamed of. Fail, and try again. Look out for doors that open up before you. Perfect your craft, ignore criticism and surround yourself with positivity. By doing this, your passion for life will transform every dream you have into action.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
