How passionate do you feel about the important components of your life?

That inspires passion.

Let’s all continue to remind ourselves how important it is to keep passion alive in our life.

The long time mind masters reminds us what passion is. “A consuming passion is the last thing you think about before you go to bed at night and the first thing you think about when you wake up,” says Brian Schwartz, author of the award-winning 50 Interviews series. “It feels like an addiction, and if someone told you to stop, it would be impossible for you to give it up.” Schwartz explains that those who have been lucky enough to recognize and pursue their passion(s) don’t really care if they are getting paid to do it or not. It’s a part of their purpose, their calling in life, and without it, something is missing.”

Is that how you feel about your life? Hopefully so.

Our employment is typically the place where most of us have the least amount of passion.

That’s why it’s called work. article, wikimedia photo article, wikimedia photo

Still we stay. We have responsibilities, bills and others depending upon us.

When unions and pensions were more prevalent, it made it even harder to leave a job we didn’t like.

One writer says you should do it anyway and here’s why. At they encourage, “Many people hate their jobs and know that they want to do something different, but stay in their hated jobs for a long time nonetheless. Their main reason for not leaving is that they haven’t actually figured out what it is that they want to do. This thinking is flawed because you won’t learn or discover your ideal career or job by sitting around and thinking about it. If the current situation isn’t working, you need to find something else.

What happens when you leave even without knowing what you will do next is that, suddenly, figuring out your next steps becomes urgent. That urgency may be a bit uncomfortable, but it can also be incredibly powerful because it frees you up to invest all of your energy into finding the next thing. Finding the next thing goes from optional to required.”

Frightening but interesting advice.

For those of us who have left or not accepted jobs to pursue our passion, we realize you have to pay a price when doing so, but the price for not doing so is often far higher.

If you stay in a job that you hate, over the years who do you evolve into? It’s not a neutral situation. Internally you are either pacing closer to the person that you would hope to be or otherwise.

We have a guest writer who has some interesting ideas on passion and making money. Please enjoy.

Live Your Passion and the Money will Follow
 by: Ruth Bridgewood

When you get towards the end of your life, it is important to be able to look back and know you did everything you wanted to do and you have no regrets. Success in life can be measured in any way, not necessarily just the amount of money you have made. However, if you can live your passion, and work towards something you are extremely passionate about, it is most likely that you will make money (despite yourself!). article, wikimedia photo article, wikimedia photo

Here are some things you need to know and do in order to be successful and live out your passion:

Belief – The most important thing is to believe that you will be successful. Relax and believe in your success. Visualize yourself on television one day talking about your passion and how you turned it into a reality. Believe and feel empowered as you think about your endeavor and how you are going to be successful. As well as believing in yourself, you must believe in what you are doing and the impact it will make on the world (or at the very least, the positive impact it will have on your clients or customers).

Attitude – You need to maintain a complete positive attitude. Be positive at all times. Don’t let the little things get you down or upset you. Realize that every obstacle now is a learning experience. Have a positive attitude and outlook on everything you do with your business and your passion – the Law of Attraction will come into play and you will find that things will begin to work in your favor more often than they ever have before. article, Ringo Chan Wikimedia photo article, Ringo Chan Wikimedia photo

Passion from the inside – If you truly love what you are doing then everything will come naturally for you. You will take pride in your work and if you design clay pots then you won’t send a cracked pot out to a customer because you will be passionate about the quality. This is because you will own it and your name will be on it. You will be proud of everything you do.

Model the Experts – Choose at least five experts in the field you have chosen and model them. Learn everything you can about how they became successful. This means you should know their entire autobiography

Make a Start – If you are in a situation where you cannot make your passion a reality today, then take your idea and make it better by chiseling away at the details. Lay out the plan for your project or business endeavor, consider every detail and improve on it where you can. When you are in a waiting period there are still plenty of things for you to do. Don’t procrastinate or look at a waiting period as a sign you shouldn’t get started.

Take Action – Taking action is the most important thing to avoid procrastination. You are working toward your dream. Let nothing is going to get in your way or slow you down. Put a sign up that says “action” to remind yourself you are working toward your passion by constant action. If you have others on your team, make sure they are action oriented – it can be frustrating when you want to get things done and others are holding you back. Also build momentum by acting on the ideas you have. Don’t sit around waiting for something to happen or come to you.

Always reward action – Never let action and goal setting go without rewards. You want to reward everyone helping you and yourself. This doesn’t mean you need to spend money you don’t have. You can reward someone by letting them know you appreciate what they are doing for you. Acknowledgement of hard work is sometimes enough when people know you really appreciate it. article, photo article, photo

Continuous Improvement – Accept that when you start, you will not be putting out your best every single time. You need to find ways to continuously improve processes that are slowing you down, causing poor quality, or frustrating you. There will most likely be a certain amount of trial and error. Productivity, processes and quality will continue to improve as time goes by and you begin to find ways to make things better.

Maintain Your Enthusiasm – It’s important to keep the fires burning. Going back to your old habits could leave you feeling restless and unmotivated. Take a break or a vacation if you need to, but if your passion is genuine you should be able to recover from any slumps and get back into it! article, photo article, photo
