Man, how I love waking up in the morning! Most mornings anyway. I do have to admit I don't always have this positive outlook on getting out of bed; however, the majority of days I find joy in waking up to another day. Do you awake like this? How does your life make you feel? Do you wake each morning looking forward to the day ahead or do you wish you could bury your head under the covers and stay there? Your outlook depends on many things but one of the most important factors that can change your day-to-day life is passion.
What is Passion?
Passion is an extreme and positive emotion. A strong and compelling desire for someone or something that inspires you and creates happiness. While it can be an emotion felt towards another person, I am speaking about passion as it relates to your life and your work.
For me, I am fortunate to be passionate about my career as a full-time HR professional as well as my part-time coaching business. I love to help people resolve their problems and issues; to show people other options for life, ways to direct them to live their highest life possible. I hope you can say the same as having passion for what you do brings harmony and peace. Wouldn’t it feel amazing to earn an income from doing something that inspires you and brings you joy?
Why Do You Need Passion?
"My ambition comes from my passion: finding what I love and then expanding on that." Miranda Kerr
Without passion in your life, you will probably find that your days often feel dull and tiresome; you wake up wishing you hadn't. There may be a sense of something being missing or lacking; like there is more. You might also feel tired and depressed, often wondering 'is this all there is?' This can be the result of the negative energy surrounding you due to lack of passion. Passion brings it own positive energy.
Finding your passion for life can create enormous change. You will find that you look forward to the day ahead and want to get out of bed in the morning (or, at least most mornings :)). You will have more energy and focus. Additionally, you'll feel more creative and inspired to follow your dreams and create goals.
Your passion for life will also help you create better relationships with others including family, friends, and colleagues. They will respond to your positive energy and enthusiasm. They may chuckle at you a bit, even behind your back at how passionate you are; however, they will secretly admire you and want the same for themselves. It will rub off on them.
Living Your Passion
Finding passion for something can create an enormous shift in your life and emotions. Your passion reveals your PURPOSE! The reason for your existence. It can help you live a fulfilling life where every day is full of energy, commitment, and achievement. If life feels dull, uninspiring and leaves you with little energy and focus, then why not look for that something, a cause, hobby or career, that feels right and sparks joy within you? You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes to you, your relationships and possibly, your finances. I can guarantee it will make getting up in the morning a pleasure.
Do this and live life to the fullest - I believe in you!
