If you’re gonna do something, do it out of passion. Being successful at whatever you choose means taking the time to find your passion. If you’re passionate about your work, it will come across to everyone around you and help you fill your life with meaning. One way to help find your career passion is to give yourself a time out for personal reflection and exploration.
Take some time off whatever you may be doing and grab a piece of pen and paper. I want you to answer five simple questions about yourself:
- What would be the description of my “perfect job”?
- With what kind of people would I be working with?
- How would my work benefit me?
- How would my work benefit other people?
- How would my work make me feel?
Finding that passion of yours will not come easily, but figuring out what makes you happy and brings love to your eyes is crucial in the process. Here’s the problem: Passion can’t be found in your head because it lives in your heart. No matter how hard you try, you cannot figure out your passion by thinking about it. You need to take action and feel your way to your truth, from the inside out.
Clarity comes from engagement, not thought.
Proactively bring passion to everything you touch, to everything you do. No matter what task is in front of you, bring as much enthusiasm and energy to it as you possibly can. Bring your full attention, your full presence, the Godlike quality that each of us has within, to every task in your day. Whether you’re brushing your teeth, making love, or cleaning up dog poop – do it like you want to do it.
When you make this change, you’ll ignite crazy business ideas and creative insights far beyond what your thinking mind alone is capable of. And let’s cut the cheese, when you’re full present and passionately engaged with your life, people around you take notice and want in on whatever you’re doing.
