The strong emotion which we all feel within ourselves, the desire which keeps life going, is known as passion and it varies with each human and is present in all forms like, singing, dancing, writing, poetry, acting, cooking, making money and more. 

Passion is the fuel of your life and it must be kept charged up with consistent and focused actions. Sometimes, however, in the race of life, we often leave our passions behind. But we don’t forget it, we just need to refuel it.

Here are 10 powerful tips to help you refuel your passion:

1. Go Back to The Beginning

Remember why it all started. It sounds cliché, but going back to the first time you started acting upon your passion really helps you when you’ve come to a halt. Did you learn music to earn a sense of self or started painting because it gave you peace of mind? Did you start writing to let out all the bad emotions and preserve the good ones? Find out what made you passionate about your passion and maybe you will find new reasons to start them again.

2. Discover Your Why

Instead of being disappointed with yourself ask yourself why. Why did you stop following your passion? Why did you start working towards it? Why do you love what you do? This will help you in rediscovering what motivated you which will get you back in the game. So, what is your why?

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dream of meeting your heart’s longing.” – Oriah

3. Have A Balanced Emotional State

Being able to manage and be in control of your emotional state plays a huge role in the normal functioning of your life. If you’re stressed about work or depressed and angry at yourself and constantly questioning your worth, then you will never be able to grow and flourish in your life and have your passions fuelled. 

Take care of your emotional health by exercising, meditating or listening to your favorite songs. To be able to refuel your passion, you must first be in control of your emotional state.

4. Read Books

There are many books written specifically on how to ignite your passion and how to keep taking action towards fulfilling it. Books are the food for your brain and will get your creative juices flowing. So grab yourself an inspiring book or any other book which you love to open up your mind and guide yourself back towards your passion.

5. Watch Movies

If reading isn’t your thing, then you can watch certain movies which could ignite your passions and help you get in touch with your creativity. The best thing about movies is that they are only a few hours long and won’t require much of your time. If you have a busy schedule, then movies will give a visual aspect to recharge your passions.

6. Be Consistent

Consistency is the key to the successful completion of any task. It doesn’t matter if you couldn’t play your piano piece correctly or couldn’t finish the task at work before the time it was due, what matters is that you commit to doing it every day without fail. Being consistent keeps you driven towards the end goal.

7. Become Part of a Community

Joining a community with people who share the same passion as yours helps in keeping your passions fuelled. If you find yourself unmotivated with a lack of inspiration, you can always count on your community or groups to guide you back to it.

8. Be Patient

You won’t recharge your passion in a day. It’s a long and laborious process and you must be patient with yourself throughout this journey. If at all, you find yourself being harsh with yourself then take a break, meditate or talk to other people about how you feel. But don’t give up. Being patient helps you a lot in the long run.

9. Do What You Love

If you don’t love what you do, then you’re bound to get disinterested. Having a passion for what you enjoy doing is also an essential part of refuelling your fire. Doing what you love ensures that you enjoy doing it, find what you love and work towards it instead of forcing yourself to do something you don’t like.

“What’s money? A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.” – Bob Dylan

10. Embrace the Journey

Above all, it is imperative that you accept your journey instead of beating yourself up for not reaching your goal. No goal has ever been accomplished without an interesting journey. So, embrace it.

Do what suits you the best towards refuelling your passion to keep your spirits high.

4 Reasons Why Content Is Pivotal For Mental Health Healing

One of the most important things for an entrepreneur’s mental health is expressing their feelings, thoughts, and emotions. This is where content creation and writing becomes pivotal. Whether you read something that resonates with you or you write a compelling blog post, the act of expressing yourself through content can help to put a smile on your face and make you feel better about things.

Most entrepreneurs don’t spend as much time taking care of their mental health as they should. Over the course of your career, you will experience a lot of ups and downs; these emotions have the potential to take a toll on your mind and body if you don’t learn to manage them properly.

Here are four reasons why expression through content is pivotal for healing, slowing yourself down, and giving yourself grace when the going gets tough.

1. Content can be a form of self-expression

When you are an entrepreneur, you frequently face feelings of insecurity, doubt, fear, apathy, and exhaustion, just to name a few. Some days it feels like no one is on your business’s side and everyone else has it all figured out. On those days some of us try to look at our website’s analytics to cheer up. 

But an even more freeing task is creating content. You create content to improve your business and reach more people’s lives. But, there is something special that happens when you write with the intention of expressing your thoughts and feelings — you open a door to yourself. 

Content is inherently personal, which means content creators open themselves up when they share their thoughts on a platform. Everything from the title of the post, the keywords they choose to include, and even the content itself helps you to understand who the author of that post truly is. And as an entrepreneur, this can be an important experience because it allows others to empathize with you.

2. Self-reflection will lift you up

As you think through what to write about and how to express yourself, the process of self reflection is a valuable step you need to go through. You’re able to reflect on the blessings you have, assess what you learned from the negative experiences, and create a plan on how to maintain the positive experiences you’ve had. 

There are a few ways that self reflection can help you with mental health healing. The act of reflecting on your experiences helps to create clarity in feelings, thoughts and emotions which will eventually lead into acceptance for what has happened or is happening currently without feeling overwhelmed by it all. This process also leads people towards finding new things they enjoy doing. Self reflection is therapeutic and can be implemented anytime you feel the need to overcome overwhelm.

“Writing in a journal each day allows you to direct your focus to what you accomplished, what you’re grateful for and what you’re committed to doing better tomorrow. Thus, you more deeply enjoy your journey each day.” – Hal Elrod

3. A sense of belonging and camaraderie

It is important to have a support network of people who will listen and understand what you are going through. When you post a blog or upload a video on YouTube, there are others who feel the same way and experience a sense of connection with you.

When you put time, attention and thoughtfulness into your writing, it is amazing when someone reads what you’ve written and comments on it thanking you or expressing how they resonate with what you’re going through. It’s hard to put into words how powerful it feels when someone who has gone through the same experience and reads your words then reaches out.  There is power in expression but miracles happen when people bond over a similar experience.

4. Library of content to share with more people

It can be very difficult to know what content to share with people as the symptoms of mental health disorders (anxiety, depression, etc.) vary from person to person. But as you accumulate more and more content, this will increase the number of articles or videos available for readers to choose from depending on their specific purpose. It also builds your personal library of resources you’re able to share to different people you encounter or engage directly with.

As chaotic and distracting social media can be, it can also be a beacon of hope with the right content. Many people share viral posts, or content that interest them. Since your content is valuable and personal, the more you share it, the more likely it is to be shared with the right audience.

You never know who is watching (reading)

Your content is speaking to someone and even though they may not be actively engaged, their experiences with your work are impacting them. Think about the last time you watched TV: did everyone in the room have something entertaining to say? 

You never know who’s watching because there’s always somebody reading your posts or viewing your videos-even if they just skim through it briefly. This is why creating content worth consuming is critical, not only to get you out of your funk, but also to serve your audience.  Be authentic and stay true to yourself; make every post count as an opportunity for connection with your best self and for potential readers to bond with you.

Warren Buffett once said, the best investment you can ever make is in yourself. Time and money spent on bettering yourself are never considered a waste. Whether it’s through learning how to make money online, exploring new ways to increase your financial security, or watching TED talks to expand your knowledge. Do not be stingy when it comes to self-improvement because it will definitely pay off in the end. 

Need some ideas to get started on your journey to becoming a better you? Here are 5 ways to invest in yourself and transform your life. 

1. Change Your Self-Concept

Having a negative self-concept can have a tremendous impact on your life. Limiting beliefs and self-doubt are some of the main reasons why many never achieve or attempt to pursue their dreams. Take a moment and think about all the negative thoughts you have repeated to yourself throughout your life. How have these thoughts impacted the way you live life? From now on, create a new self-image by turning these negative thoughts into positive ones and appreciate your good qualities. 

2. Sign Up For An Online Course

If you’ve been wanting to brush up on your Photoshop skills or learn how to code professionally, this is the perfect time to get started. As long as you have a stable internet connection, you can access an endless amount of valuable information online. For example, sites like Coursera and Youtube are both awesome resources for online learning. With a few search strings and clicks, you can find all the information you need. 

“Investing in yourself is the best investment you can make. It will not only improve your life, it will improve the lives of all those around you.” – Robin Sharma

3. Learn From a Mentor

No matter which stage of your life you are currently in, working with a mentor can help you stay motivated and focused on your goals. Not only can they guide you in the right direction, but also transform your vision, provide you with new insights, and connect you with amazing resources. If you’re feeling unmotivated or unsure about what you want to do in life, consider finding a mentor to help you navigate this process. 

4. Start A Side Hustle

The salary from a 9-5 job would rarely allow you to reach your maximum income potential. Why not achieve financial success while pursuing your passion by starting a side hustle? Whether it’s through starting an ecommerce business, freelance writing on the side, or starting a Youtube channel. There are infinite numbers of ways to make money, and there is bound to be one out there that fits your passion and skills. 

5. Nourish Your Body

As many may say, “health is the new wealth”. Without a healthy and functioning body, living a fulfilling and comfortable life becomes difficult. To take care of your body and prioritize your wellbeing, start with small habits such as eating healthier foods and exercising regularly. Bike or walk to work instead of taking the car, and opt for a healthy protein bowl instead of greasy burgers at Burger King. With time, these small habits can make an incredible difference.
