The Power of Passion

What gives you the ability to feel really good, excited, and switched on in life. The power of passion is what gives your life its juice . Do you know what you’re passionate about?

So many of you are feeling stuck in your life, searching for answers, looking for true happiness. Others are spending your time looking for the answers to success, life, hope, growth and so many other areas of personal development.

The majority of the questions we ask ourselves in life cannot be answered by external sources, so its pointless looking outside of yourself trying to find them. You have been provided with all the necessary tools to answer every question . Your unconscious, is a powerful ally in your quest to have your questions answered. Deep within you lies a very powerful source of strength waiting for you to connect with it.

Today is the day you have made the decision to seize control of your life. Coffee in hand, you flip open your laptop and Google the words “The Power of Passion”. Somewhere on the first page of your search you simply read the title: The Power of Passion which catches your eye. It continues “Welcome to Healthy Lifestyles Living – It is time you discovered the power of passion. Today we’re going to investigate how to identify your life’s passion so that ultimately, you can build a happy and fulfilling life through it. Everyone has a passion, it’s just a matter of whether you have allowed yourself to find it, live it, and follow it.” That is why you find yourself here reading this article. Or perhaps you are one of my regular readers and know that personal development coaching and blogging are two things I’m very passionate about, and together they have allowed me to create a very exciting online business.

Unlike in fairytales, hopes and dreams don’t just magically come to fruition, neither does a genie grant you three wishes when you need them. They take planning, plenty of action, in fact lots of hard work is always going to be required to make your dreams come true. Nothing worthwhile is created without effort. But when this work is something you love doing, then it doesn’t feel like work at all.

Doing what you love to do is one of your primary responsibilities in life to yourself. To me there is nothing better, more exhilarating, or motivating than to find out what you really enjoy doing, what you have a natural talent, strengths and abilities for, and then to throw your whole heart into doing that, and building your business and future around it.

When you are doing what you love to do, you seem to have a continuous flow of excitement, energy and ideas and every day you just seem to have fun doing what you would choose to do, even if you weren’t being paid for it.

So to me the most important thing anyone can do for themselves is to find out what it is that they really love doing and then dedicate themselves to that field. And then commit to being the very best at what they do.

There is nothing wrong with having a philosophy that says “This is my life, and my dreams are worth it”. Life is a courageous journey or nothing at all, and it’s time for you to realize that your dreams are all within your grasp; you just have to step up and go for them. We cannot become who we want to be by continuing to do exactly what we’ve been doing. If you are passionate about something, pursue it, no matter what anyone else thinks. That’s how dreams are achieved. When you do finally put your effort into something you love, you’ll be amazed at the opportunities that seem to suddenly just open up to you.

I am the creator of Healthy Lifestyles Living blog and love writing, speaking and coaching about personal development, it is something I am totally passionate about. I have been amazed at this journey that my life has been taken on, and now want to give back much of what I have learnt.

Everyday I follow my heart and am living my passion through this blog, and developing it to ensure it makes the difference. Blogging on my subject of passion has enabled me to build a thriving coaching practice, make money from speaking(something I’d always dreamed of doing) and power an e-commerce wellbeing shop that has increased it’s revenue month on month for over 10 months. With the addition of income from advertisers on my blog, affiliates and adsense, I certainly have built a business that is flourishing. Within the next 6 weeks even bigger advances will be happening too. The funny thing is this was never my priority, and still isn’t.

My mission is to continue to create a valuable resource for my readers personal development journey. I do not want it to just be just another self-improvement blog, and I certainly don’t want it to be seen as just a monetized scheme hidden behind a blog.

As a blogger I want to motivate and inspire others. To achieve this I have to have the energy, enthusiasm and passion for what I write about.

One of the big things I teach others is that when they blog they have to dig deep to find the emotions they want to convey to their audience. People know when your emotion is real and when it isn’t. If you don’t feel it from within you won’t be able to communicate it to your audience. They must draw on their personal experiences to find the emotion for their writing.

When I first started blogging, it was more as an escape from the frustrations of being unable to do my work due to a medical condition. I wanted to do something to fill my time, within an area that I had a great passion for.

When I realized that I was good at it, it became a bigger part of my life, and my purpose expanded, and my blogging took an interesting direction, and it became the driving force behind my online business. It didn’t take me long to work out that if you work to your passion and seize your day then you have a wining formula for a productive you.

As time went by, and the more I saw how my writing was serving to inspire many more people I then realized I was helping others through the inspiration I was able to provide them.

And working hard really isn’t all about toiling and sweating and dreading what you are doing. If you are doing what you love then it really isn’t work at all. I work hard day in day out, writing new articles for my blog, coaching others and building my business, but that’s because I love what I’m doing so much that I can’t get enough of it. It doesn’t even feel like work.

One thing that is for sure, finding my passion and blogging completely changed the direction of my life forever. I’m passionate about helping others achieve the same things that I have been blessed with, and that is what the next stage of this blog is going to allow me to do. I want to inspire many more people to do something like I have been able to do.

I want to help you spend your life doing what you love. Work from home if that’s what you choose to do. Let me guide you, show you where to start, and nudge you along. Passion is powerful. Together our passions can really make the difference.

    Larry…you have to love what you do and do what you love! I’m finding, more and more, that the internet provides each of us so many opportunities…all we need is to link up with someone who is as energetic, motivated, and determined as we are about our own passions 🙂 Great post! Thanks for sharing your views.

    I can definitely say that I’m a very passionate person, and I find it in everything. And I actually think that people who are not passionate at all, are usually very boring and maybe not so interesting for me in communication
