Leading a fulfilling life – a life you love and feel great about – is a matter of knowing how to put the pieces of your life together in a way that empowers you.
Your best life starts with CLARITY.
You create a fulfilling life by creatively capitalizing on your talents, passions and values. Self-knowledge is empowering. Once you have the ability to articulate your gifts you gain the power to actively use them, or leverage them, in your life.
The more you know about yourself the more power you have to create the life you most want. The more you understand, the more you have to work with.
Why is it important to discover your passions? Well, think of it this way. What do you think of when you think of “passion”? Probably something exciting, enticing and fun!
Another way to say it is passion = energy.
Energy that feels good!
Creating your best life takes energy. Your passions will give you the energy to do the work you need to do to create the life you most want.
That’s because what we are passionate about is what we care deeply about. It’s as if we MUST DO those things we are most passionate about.
If you’re struggling in your life or career today it could be you’re not involved in work you feel passionate about. In other words, you may not care deeply enough about the work you’re doing to give it your all. Or, you may not have enough self-knowledge to bring YOUR BEST to everyday life.
Discovering your passions TURNS ON YOUR POWER. That’s because once you discover and understand what you’re most passionate about and find the words to articulate your passions, you can begin organizing your life around your passions. This will allow you to leverage THE BEST of who you are to create a life you love. That not only leads to a life that works well, it leads to a life that feels great from the inside out!
The following seven questions will assist you in discovering and articulating your passions. Be as descriptive as you’d like.
1. What do I most often give to others?
2. What do I have the most fun doing?
3. What do others look to me for?
4. What am I most often complimented on?
5. What do I do where I lose all track of time?
6. What do the people closest to me say my passions are?
7. What ideas, things, places and/or people am I most inspired by?
