True happiness and success
comes when you do what you are most passionate about! One of the biggest things that most of us lack is passion. Ask any successful person, entrepreneur, millionaire and they will all tell you the same thing; you must be passionate about what you do! A recent survey shows that 75% of the population do not know what their true passion is. Perhaps this is why there is so much unhappiness in our society for to be truly happy, you have to really love and be passionate about what you do.

Here is a list of 7 things you need to ask and answer for yourself to help you find and understand what you are passionate about.

 

What puts a smile on your face?

Following what makes you truly happy is a wonderful way to figuring out what you were put on Earth for. Think about something that you do or that perhaps you used to do that brings you total happiness!

What do you find easy?
What we find easy for us to do, will be related to what we are passionate about. It’s very hard to hate something that is very easy for us!

What sparks your creativity?
Think about something in your life where you seem to always expand its horizon, always coming up with new, fun, and exciting ideas relating to that subject. Whatever makes you creative is something that you are passionate about.

What would you do for free?
Think about something that you would just love to do, even if you were not getting paid. Think about something that you look forward to do, something that you wish you could do all the time

What do you like to talk about?
Most of the time, we aren’t aware of this. A good way to figure this out properly, is to ask your friends. Ask them what they believe you like to talk about the most, what topic makes your eyes brighten up, and changes your entire behaviour.

What makes you unafraid of failure?
When you do what you are passionate about, you have total confidence in your abilities. This makes you not worry about failing, because in your mind, how can you fail when you do what you love?

What would you regret not having tried?
If you were at the end of your life, what would you regret not having pursued? What would you have liked to do, that you didn’t get a chance to?

    In order to know and or understand your purpose you must first know God. He is the one who created us all. I am currently reading “The Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren, I am loving it. I believe in passion an success however I also believe in the statement in order to understand an invention and how it works you must ask the creator …not the invention because they simply won’t have the answer. Seek and you shall find.

    The video was great, very inspiring. But as I was watching it I couldn’t Help but notice that there was only inspirational stories about successful men. I would love to see one about successful women and what they think about passion.

    One more question to ask yourself, “What would you do if you knew you wouldn’t fail.”

    Interesting post, however, passion is not related to things that are easy for us, great passion is the desire to do big and challenging things.

    Is it possible to lose your passion? Your sense of purpose? Because that’s what I’m feeling right now. And until I find it again, this will probably be one of those obstacles you encounter on the way to success.
