Are you living every single day or are you living just for the Weekend? It’s Friday today and the weekend is about to start. I wonder if you are someone who can’t wait for Saturday and Sunday hating the rest of your week, particularly dreading Monday mornings.
The people who hate their jobs will never find true happiness because in order to be happy you have to enjoy your life, your whole life.
When it comes to work, way too many of you are settling for doing a job you hate. But this is ruining your health and relationships. It’s ruining your lives.
I suggest there’s something really important missing in your life. The thing that will fuel your fire and make you want to leap out of bed in the morning
Life is a gift; it is a gift that you should enjoy every single day, not just on the weekends.
You need to know where your passion lies, and introduce it in to your life in a big way.
If you had a choice to do anything you wanted to do with your life what would it be?
You may not have the answers yet, but soon you will!
The Definition of Passion is:
1. A powerful emotion, such as love, joy, hatred, or anger.
a. Ardent love.
b. Strong sexual desire; lust.
c. The object of such love or desire.
Passion is that strong desire to do something because we love it; it brings joy and a sense of fulfilment. When we are doing it we’re motivated, excited, ambitious and extremely focused. It’s a wonderful way to live.
There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. Nelson Mandela
If you haven’t yet found the work you were meant to do or the passion you were meant to live with, please don’t give up.
I want you to read this quote:
“Our lives are marked with a series of events, encounters, and turning points that in one way or another stamp our outlook and move us in a direction that shapes us into who we are today.” Regie Routman
Steve Jobs and Bill Gates probably had no inclination that their passions would change the world, but they did. My message to you is that until you allow your passions to radiate through everything you do, you will have no idea of your passions true power.
My personal experience shows me that when you focus on your passion, you find your true destiny in life, and the results you experience just get better and better.
You may not be the next Steve Jobs, or even Bill Gates but when you live your passion and allow your passions to excel you will certainly impact the world in a positive way and never again be living just for the Weekend
“Live your Passion. What does that mean, anyway? It means that when you get up for work every morning, every single morning, you are pumped because you get to talk about or work with or do the thing that interests you the most in the world. You don’t live for vacations because you don’t need a break from what you’re doing – working, playing, and relaxing are one and the same. You don’t even pay attention to how many hours you’re working because to you, it’s not really work. You’re making money, but you’d do whatever it is you’re doing for free”. Gary Vaynerchuk
Everyone deserves the opportunity to dream, explore, and prosper. You need to dream to stir up within you the creative energies that will allow you to see what might be possible. You need to search deep within yourself to uncover and learn what you enjoy the most, how you like to work, what comes naturally to you, so as to find the path for you to pursue that will be most fulfilling as well as rewarding for you to take.
It’s time for you to explore the opportunities waiting for you in your life.
Focus on the things you love to do.
What have you dreamed of doing in the past?
What do you naturally enjoy doing?
Jot down what comes to mind, no matter how implausible it seems.
One of my roles as personal development coach is to inspire passion in others. To help them discover their passions I ask questions. Questions can be empowering. Our minds love it when we ask ourselves questions. Questions provide the mind with encouragement, direction and focus. As soon as we ask a question, our mind immediately begins searching for an answer.
These questions are designed to stimulate your thinking to find your passions.
1. If you had an endless amount of money and time:
• What are three things you would do?
• Where would you go?
• What two things would you purchase?
2. What dream have you always thought about, but never shared it with anyone?
3. If you knew you would be 100% successful, what would you do?
4. What five things are you really passionate about?
5. If you had £500,000 to donate, who or what organization would you give to?
6. What are three things you want your dreams to do for your family?
7. What is the one thing that really drives you?
8. What would cause you to get up early and stay up late?
9. List three things that make you happy and full of joy.
10. What is it you want to do with your life?
When you discover your passion you will feel this powerful, deep-seated feeling in the pit of your stomach? The feeling of emotion and of knowing this is what you want to be doing.
Go find your passions so you are no longer living just for the Weekend!
