Be More Successful and Find Your Passion

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.

Stress Kills

I just finished my ideology exam today, it was a long two hours.

You know that feeling your eyes get when you’ve been concentrating for so long on something and they just go cross-eyed? It’s like whenever I take a biology or chemistry exam, no problem; but when it comes to a literature arts exam such as English or Socials where critical thinking is the key to success, my brain bogs the hell out.

Not to mention that leftover wait time you must sit through before leaving if you finish early, God that’s the worst – tickticktick.

I strongly believe in personal time, you know; that time you can take to relax for a bit. Go for a walk, exercise, go swimming, breathe. Let go of all the stress for at least five minutes tops. I’m going to the beach with a besty; Kaela in about an hour, gonna sit off, have a few beers, talk and most importantly let go, despite having my last diploma exam on Thursday.

I think one of the key problems in the world today is that everyone has become way too focused on the gas pedal, people do not realize how stressed they are until they sit down and take a break for a second. It’s one of the reasons why I do not want to have kids, could you imagine how much homework they will have?! Just think about it… our parents’ education levels didn’t even come close to competing with the educational standards we have today, with the rise of technology on the continuum, I’m really gonna feel sorry for the next few generations to come. There’s no doubt about it, stress kills. It raises your cholesterol, get’s your blood boiling, and most importantly – lowers your immune system, which can cause lists of different types of cancer and diseases.

So I dare you, go outside and breathe, take a break for just a few minutes and enjoy the brighter side of life.

And don’t forget your beer.
