Whatever you do, do it with Passion!
There’s so much to live for, and so many things to be consistently fired up about. It blows me away to think that some people don’t live with passion every single day.
Why don’t you seek what you really are passionate about?
During our lives we tend to do many things out of obligation, out of fear of other people’s opinions and these are things that don’t motivate us or that we just do not like.
1. Find people who are passionate about you
The first thing we can do is to start surrounding ourselves with passionate people. These are people who radiate their enthusiasm in our direction and who support us when we are thinking of changing things.
2. Look for what makes you happy
What is it that really excites you? What makes your pulse race?
That is the path you must follow. There’s always something that makes our heart beat stronger and that draws a huge smile on our face. When that happens it’s because we are doing what we are passionate about. Explore all the things you like, talk to people who do what you love, read, study, learn and gradually you will see clearly what your dream is.
Like in my case, I see to it to make a difference in the lives of other people through Pioneer.
3. Learn to convey your passion
Our motivation will pour into any place we go to, or any group of people we spend time with.
At some point in your life you will find another person who wants to make a change in their life, but at the same time doesn’t want to take the risk. That will be the perfect opportunity to convey all your passion, so that another person will lose their fear of the future and walk safely towards their dreams.
4. Change Your Focus
If you want to live with passion, if you want to live an exciting and a positive life, then this is A MUST TRY. Decide to change your focus. When I say change your focus, I mean make it a priority to focus on only those things that uplift you and make you feel good.
Living with passion is all about living life to its’ fullest.
It’s about focusing on the good, and attempting to live a great life.
5. Change Your Mindset
The person with a growth mindset believes in the value effort. They have the mindset that they can control their destiny, become stronger, smarter, and better through concentrated effort and determination. These are people who believe that have chances of finding more success, accomplishment, and happiness. This is because they believe they can do so.
6. Follow your fire
If you want to live with passion, you must do the things which excite you the most in life. Even if you can’t drop everything and do it right away, you have to eventually CHASE THAT THING. If you want to live with passion, you have to do that thing that really brings joy to your life. You have to follow your fire. You need to make sure you are striving to do those things that bring you most in life.
7. Have More Fun
To live with passion means to live full out. This is to be in a state or mode of trying to squeeze every last ounce of awesome from this life of yours. And we both know that life is not all about work. I believe there is some wisdom in the saying, work hard play hard. Playing, having fun, and doing things we enjoy with friends and family adds fuel to the fire of life. So be sure to have some fun!
8. Stop Making Excuses
Take responsibility for everything that happens in your life when things don’t go as planned. Take ownership of it. So, if you want to live with passion, the excuses have got to go.
9. Be a Little Selfish
Think about it.
Has there ever been a time when you felt forced to do something you didn’t really want to be doing?
It is important to take care of yourself first. I know this may sound crazy to some, but really, you’re not doing yourself a favor when it comes to living fully, if you are dragging your feet along the way.
When you take care of you first, you create the conditions to be passionate about life. When you feel obligated to put your interests last, you dampen your fire.
To my friends in Pioneer...
Yes, life is hard, and we all have our problems. But every time I see a person full of life and on fire to live his or her life to its’ fullest, it brings a smile to my face. It also makes me think, how the world could use more people who truly live with passion. The great news is we can all become that person if we really want to.
So, will you? Will you choose to live life to its’ fullest, to live life on fire?
S T R I V E!
Just figure out what your passion is and you are half way there.
Just to share, this is the reason why I am living my life to the fullest.
I live my life with passion and purpose. Hope you are too.
