If you feel like there’s something out there that you’re supposed to be doing, if you have a passion for it, then stop wishing and just do it. ~ Wanda Skyes
Finding and following your passion is one of the greatest things you can do with your life.
It will make you the best version of yourself, let you become good at something and master a skill, it gives you the chance to make money from it or share the knowledge with others.
Also, a person who knows what his passion is and finds some time every day to do what he loves, is someone who is happy, contented and grateful. And thus he helps others, is more kind and even successful.
But how do you know what your passion in life is?
We all know it’s the thing we enjoy doing that makes us lose track of time, but how exactly can we discover it?
Questions to ask yourself to find out what you’re passionate about:
• What makes you truly happy?
• What can you do for hours without feeling tired or bored?
• What are you good at?
• What do you feel like doing when you feel inspired?
• What moves you?
• What are you interested in?
• What impresses you?
• What excites you so much that you can’t go to sleep?
• What mark do you want to leave when you’re gone?
• Is there something you’ve done that felt like the right thing?
• What are your bravest dreams (if failure wasn’t an option)?
Answering these means discovering your purpose in life and stating your deepest desire.
But often your passion is not so obvious. That’s when it’s time to look into your past and go back to your childhood to examine your behavior back then.
In this post about finding your passion, I urge people to ask themselves the following questions:
• What did you like doing that your parents or teachers taught you out of?
• Were you always thinking about doing something but never found the time or courage?
• Maybe it was just one time in your childhood that you saw something, did something, went somewhere or heard something that made you feel at a higher level and filled you with energy, but you immediately went back to reality. Try to recall this happening in details. What grabbed your attention?
• What subject did you enjoy most at school?
• What did you love doing in your free time as a child?
• What was your dream when you were young?
I advice everyone to take some time and reflect on these. It’s worth it to spend a few hours trying to answer all of the questions and be as honest with yourself as you can.
Because then you’ll know what exactly your passion is and how you can find a way to implement it into your life.
Once you do that, you can wake up tomorrow and do something about it.
A passionate life is something everyone deserves to have. It can help us unleash our full potential, awake spiritually, become the best version of ourselves and reach new heights.
So what’s your thing? What makes you lose track of time and forget about the world?
