Discover Your Passion – Are You Truly Living
Passion is about feeling an emotion intensely and deeply. That emotion can be either positive or negative but more often than not, when we speak about being passionate about life, we are focusing on positive passion. It is important to keep in mind that living life with passion usually means that you are investing in something.
What you choose to invest in will depend on your interests. That’s where things begin to get tricky. How do we know what we are interested in? Often we live our lives trying to accomplished some standard tasks (school, work, relationship) and that takes up quite a bit of our time and effort. What we study in school is often heavily influenced by our parents, the career path is therefore also heavily influenced. The relationships that we enter are also influenced by our history (family, friends, mentors). It can be very difficult to truly feel like we are choosing to be passionate when we can see how we’ve been influenced.
The only way to know for sure, live! By living your life and paying attention to what actually causes you to become inspired, happy, and enthusiastic, you will learn what you are passionate about. And remember, your intense emotional reaction may be negative (like wanting to oppose something that is happening in your life). By understanding what we are passionate about, we can modify behavior and goals to create something positive.
Live your life and experience your passion!
Are you truly living if everyday looks the same and you are doing things mechanically? How do you know if you discovered your passion? Life is all about enjoying each moment and fulfilling experiences. In order to accomplish that, you need to be willing to examine what you want out of life. Not everyone has the same goals for their life. Be honest with yourself and discover your passion. Life with meaning is worth living.Here is a book that helps us understand how to achieve self fulfillment through a convergence of our passion and natural talents:Canada: http://amzn.to/2i7zZ0QUnited Kingdom: http://amzn.to/2zIoqEjYou can find Violet here: www.violetreveira.comAll product links are amazon affiliate links.
