This post is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!
You have to promise me 1 thing. That you will actually answer the questions here! I’m doing this to help you! Once you find your passion you will start moving a whole lot faster!
Every successful person says the same thing – do what you love.
In order to do what you love it has to be something you are passionate about!
For example I love to play football (soccer!) its one of my passions. But I love talking about entrepreneurship and business more hence why I started this blog!
I started my journey in finding my passion with the question:
How do I find my passion? I suggest you start with that same question.
It took me a whole month to really, and I mean really get in touch with it after 3 months of wasting time. I feel so strongly about this because most people don’t ever take the time to find out what they are passionate about. This is the reason why they are unhappy in their work.
You have to be willing to go outside of your ‘comfort zone’ to find your true passion. My passion is helping people – but before I went to the Les Brown event I had no idea that I would find public speaking so exciting talking about what I love – mindset and motivating people. It was great but had I never taken that step out of my comfort zone I would not have known this.
The very essence of what I am about to talk about today is:
“How YOU can find your passion”
Dr Farrah Gray, who was a millionaire at age 14!, said:
“To find out what God put you here to do, ask yourself these 3 questions:
1) What comes easy to you but harder to others?
2) What could you do for years and never have to get paid for?
3) How can you be of service?”
Now these 3 questions are great but when it comes to really finding your passion you need to ask yourself a lot more.
Also ask yourself these questions about your passion to yourself and friends and family. Thats what I did.
What do I really enjoy doing?
What am I good at?
Does it keep me up at night?
Does it challenge my comfort zone?
Can I talk about it for hours? (to the point where someone has to interrupt me?!)
Would I do it even if money was not an object?
Have others told me I would be good at this?
What are your strengths?
Do people come to me for advice about this thing? (even if they do, it may not be your passion and that’s ok. People come to me for bodybuilding advice but that’s not really my passion!)
If you want to do what you love for a living you have to be completely committed. You have get yourself to the point where you can say ‘This is what I really want and I’m not going to settle for anything else”
You have to be 100% certain that this is going to happen and say I’m going to do this no matter what.
You also have to be so excited about what you do. I heard this quote somewhere and it said
‘You gotta do what you do so well they can’t take their eyes off you’
That is the formula for massive success and I’m still working on it of course!
I want to leave you with this:
Look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself: What 1 thing would I want to do for the rest of my life?
P.S. Remember, however long it takes you to fully answer these questions it doesnt matter. What matters is that you are constantly asking yourself these questions and also ask others. You may enjoy the thought of doing something but you never know if that could be your passion unless you try it.
There is massive potential for you to succeed and it is up to you to find out what will tap that potential = your passion.
Your strengths you had from birth coupled with your interests may result in your passion just keep searching for it! I promise you will find it if you look for it!
