When was the last time you truly felt excitement about life? Are you somebody who sees life as being a constant battle, filled with nothing but struggles? If you are you know it is essential to re-ignite your excitement about life?
But how do you do it?
When you wake up every morning are you excited and eager for a new day? Or do you wake up every morning repeatedly hitting the snooze button dreading the day ahead? Are you excited about your life, or are you living a life of quiet desperation?
When you’re excited about your life you wake up every day with a big smile on your face, excited about what is to come.
“The question you should be asking isn’t, “What do I want?” or “What are my goals?” but “What would excite me?” Tim Ferriss
For many it’s hard to find something to get excited about.
They work too hard.
Yet are always struggling for money.
Credit cards maxed out.
Bills pilling up.
No time to have a social life.
Always on edge.
Filled with negativity.
There never seems much to look forward to.
“So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land!” Peter Pan
The American author Joseph Campbell said that the secret of life was to “Follow Your Bliss.” Following your bliss means looking inside and choosing an action or activity that allows you to feel more alive. Alive with no regrets or undesirable consequences.
You have to make the choice to live like you mean it and get excited about your life. If you don’t like something change it. Stop waiting for the life you want to happen and make it happen. You have to find your bliss, the thing you would do that would just bring so much excitement into your life.
“I couldn’t be luckier to wake up every morning and be so excited to get to work, even if it’s five in the morning.” Carly Chaikin
What if I told you that today you were free to do whatever you want? Today your life could change and you could be who you want to be and live your life exactly how you want to? You have to decide to follow your bliss. This I can guarantee will bring you excitement about life.
My dreams, my goals are what keep me excited. Doing the work that I do, this also gets me excited, because it’s deeply connected to my goals. My job is my passion. It is much easier to be excited about your day if you do what matters to you. If you do something meaningful, you will have a bunch of reasons to go through the day full of energy. Every time I coach another person, inspire an audience I am feeling my bliss.
“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.” Joseph Campbell
To feel inspired, excited and enthusiastic about life you have to let yourself feel inspired, excited and enthusiastic. You have to choose to follow your bliss.
“There’s something inside you that knows when you’re in the center that knows when you’re on the beam or off the beam. And if you get off the beam to earn money, you’ve lost your life. And if you stay in the center and don’t get any money, you still have your bliss.” Joseph Campbell
‘I don’t know what my bliss is’ I hear you shouting.
Chose love! Living a blissful life is a journey energised by having a magnificent emotional state of joy, fulfilment and happiness which I believe you can only achieve through love. So to be living a life of bliss, excited about life you just have to focus on what you love.
A major source of discontent in many people’s lives not knowing what they truly want. Not being able to discover their passions or purpose. They try everything to find the answer. But it’s simple, just think about the things you love.
Answer these question:
- Who do you love?
- What experiences, events, situations, circumstances and sensations in life do you love?
- Where would you love to be?
- What are the causes, problems, issues & needs you would love to solve?
- What do you love doing?
- What tasks, projects and things do you love to do?
- What things would you love to have?
- What’s something you’d love to learn?
- What would you love to be?
The answers to these questions need time to be reflected on. They really will show you what you must do to get excitement about life.
Live your best life blissfully!
