HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Year after year we set goals for ourselves, both personal and professional and those goals should be driven by passion. Often so many people are in search of their passions and find it difficult to figure out what they are destined to do in life. Well, I’ve got you covered! Here are:
17 WAYS TO FIND YOUR PASSION IN 2017
1: WHAT IS THE FIRST THING ON YOUR MIND WHEN YOU WAKE UP?
When you are passionate about something its usually hard to think about anything other than that. What pulls you out of bed in the morning? What gives you that tingle in your stomach? You know, that inexplicable natural high. Those are your passions.
2: KEEP A LIST OF WHAT ACTIVITIES MAKE YOU HAPPY & DO THEM OFTEN
Self care is the most important aspect of overall good well being. Take some time everyday to do something for you!
3: TRY NEW THINGS
Comfort is the enemy of achievement, so step out of your comfort zone and try something new! Besides trying new things can be super exciting!
4: LISTEN TO THAT “INNER YOU”
I know its cliche, but “Your mind
rarely, never steers you wrong.” Tap into that gut feeling and let your intuition speak!
This one is simple…Write the vision, make it plain.
6: SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVE VIBES
Who are the members of your #Squad ? Who do you consider your support system? These people should be like-minded, driven and goal oriented just like you. Being around people who speak and exude positivity is crucial to our personal growth and development. Re-evaluate your space & if your crew is not motivating you, it may be time to tell a few people…
7: GIVE YOURSELF CONSTANT POSITIVE REMINDERS
There are tons of apps and services that send you positive messages daily. I use ShineText.com Shine sends you a daily text experience to help target dysfunctional beliefs and self doubt, & give tactical intentions and remind you to be kind to yourself.
8: LET GO
Let go of anything you don’t need anymore. If it does not help you physically, financially, or fundamentally, LET IT GO!
9: UNDERSTAND WHY YOU LIKE THE THINGS YOU LIKE
If you want to
find a job live a life you are passionate about and will enjoy for years to come, you need to focus on the specific tasks you love to help you discover a way to use those on a daily basis.
10: MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF
I highly suggest taking time away from
friends, family, work, LIFE to “just be.” Have a deeply honest talk with yourself about your happiness. Take a day just for YOU and be alone. Be painfully upfront about how happy you are.
11: ASK FOR ADVICE
Lord knows I’ve tried, but we frankly just can’t go through life alone. Asking for advice from a diverse group of people forces me to see situations in a different view than my own. It also provides me with a group of people outside my immediate circles that understand what I am trying to achieve and can help me think of new and creative ways to do it.
12: TALK TO STRANGERS
OK, you’re no longer a 10 year old child, so “stranger danger” is no longer a thing. We tend to surround ourselves with people who share similar backgrounds, career paths, and/or interests. By talking to strangers regularly, you open yourself up to a world a possibilities and diverse perspectives which you may not have been exposed to otherwise.
13: CONSTANTLY REMIND YOURSELF OF WHAT YOU ARE GRATEFUL OF
The more we understand and appreciate those aspects of our lives that we truly value, the more we see clearly what our passion is.
14: CHECK IN WITH FRIENDS REGULARLY
I try to check in with a few friends at least bi-weekly. You can discover a lot of your passion through other people and this is a great way to stay connected as life gets busy.
15: JUST. KEEP. MOVING
Finding your passion is much like running a marathon. To find it, you must keep moving. Left foot, right foot—relentless forward motion. Make a daily goal.
16: WRITE DOWN YOUR IDEAS
Each day, write down your ideas, any and all ideas that come to mind, and keep them all in one place. Sift through and edit your ideas every month or so, and put the best ones at the top.
17: CHALLENGE YOURSELF EVERYDAY
A guaranteed way to find your passion is to challenge yourself every day. Push yourself to the point where you’re saying, “Wow I can’t believe I did that!” Take on things you have no experience in whatsoever. Often, the results will surprise you in a very happy way.
