Find Your Passion
Today you may have a desire to write a book, write a song, go back to school, work or start your own Fortune 500 company, but you may not know where or how to start. Self-discovery is part of our continuous self development. Self-discovery never ends and it always begins by finding what you are passionate about.
Your heart desires or life-clues as I like to call them, work as your inner GPS. Knowing your passion doesn’t mean you have found your purpose in life, but it will direct your unique talents and skills to the areas that you love and care about. It will give you clarity and a better understanding of where you are today. where to go and want to go next!
Passion vs Purpose
Finding your heart desires (passion) will only give you a sense of purpose but is does not mean you have found or know your purpose. Sensing what your purpose may be in life means that you have become aware you were created for something bigger than to just find what you are passionate about, but when you know your purpose, you can articulate the reason you were created for can visualize yourself doing nothing else!
Knowing your purpose will help you answer bigger questions such as, why am I here? Why was I created for?
Following the right life-clues (heart desires) will give you answers to some of those big picture questions about purpose but remember that passion is not your purpose!
Time to Reflect:
- What are you really passionate about?
- Can you describe your passions as controllable or uncontrollable?
- What are all the current passions?
- Describe where your current passions are taking you?
- Are your current passions telling you about what is important to you?
