How do you typically feel when you wake up?
Full of energy because you love your life.
Dreading what you have to face in the day ahead
Blah, just another day
Either way that you answer this question, you should circle back and ask yourself: "Am I living life with passion?"
If you are going through life routinely because you just feel like that this is what life dealt you, start reflecting on your passions.
CREATE A LIST OF YOUR PASSIONS
Below are some categories to consider when creating a list of your passions.
Health & Fitness
After you have completed the list, prioritize by importance.
The next step is to answer yes or no for each of the passions whether or not you are achieving/cultivating the passion.
If yes, then great. If no, then start a new list under that passion of ideas on how to incorporate that passion into your life.
EXAMPLE OF HOW I AM LIVING MY PASSION
By trade, I am a software consultant for the construction industry. During the shutdown of the pandemic, my life got pretty depressing (as it did for most of the world). I started to reflect on what I could do that would bring a smile to my heart.
Well, I love to learn! So, I completed an online Interior Design course which was amazing to learn! I also took a couple of different coaching courses.
After completing all of the courses, I realized my passion is to help people find their courage. I have done so much work in this area of my life and I knew I had a lot to share.
Passion for my career now identified!
I started a new division of my company, Call Me Courage. The days that I can wake up and can work solely on Call Me Courage put a huge smile on my heart. I still do software consulting and I remind myself on those days that I do love helping people and I have a lot of knowledge to share about that subject as well.
Every day, I remind myself to stay true to living my passion!
