If you can identify your passions – what excites YOU and makes you want to take action – you will find your purpose in life. Doing this, in fact, it is the only way to get on the launchpad. Have you ever heard saying “Find a job you enjoy, and you’ll never work a day in your life”? That is so true! Some of the most successful people are the ones who are doing what they are passionate about, day in and day out. To them, it’s not even work.
Everyone (yes, that means YOU!) has at least one passion in life, if not more. Finding your passion and creating your flight plan are the first steps in making an impact and going from Zero to Breakthrough in your career and in your life.
Here are a few things you can do to create that breakthrough:
- Don’t beat your head against the wall, trying to fit into someone else’s box doing something you don’t like
- Choose paths that suit your talents, interests and personality
- Think of something that gives you that feeling of “YES! I love when I’m doing ________.”
When you have sheer umph for what you’re doing, it will take you a million times further than the person who’s just in it for some external reason – money, fame or family pressure.
Think back to when you were a kid and what you wanted to be when you grew up. Maybe when you were 7 or 8, you didn’t know how you would become a doctor or a professional speaker or an entrepreneur. As a friend of mine, Michelle Villalobos, said, “Absolutely do not worry about the ‘how.’ Concentrate on what you want; worry about the ‘how’ after the goal and vision have been created.”
You are CLEARED HOT!
