Find your passion

Everyone in this world has some talent. It could be anything from being a mastermind to knowing how to grow crops. No one is talentless in true sense. Yet some people use their talent to shine and rise above all when others lag behind. Those people have found their passion and followed it. If you have a passion then you already know about its power. If you don’t have one, I’m sure you’ve been told plenty of times to find one. Passion drives you to try your best to make it work. Passion works as a fuel for all the sacrifices you make to achieve your goal. Without passion, it’s really tough to stay focused on your goal especially with all these extreme pressures of the race of being successful. If you do something you’re not passionate about, you can’t be successful. Even if you become successful, it will last for a very short period until you get frustrated and give up. Because when you are not passionate about something, you don’t feel happy and satisfied rather you feel trapped, which is the last thing anyone would ever want to feel. So you must have a passion. But the question is, how to find one if you have none? Well, there is no straight cut formula or path to find your passion. It’s not available in Google maps! But there are some steps which might help you to find your passion. All you have to do is be eager enough to find it.

How to find your passion:

  1. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. For a moment forget about your situation, your worries, your duties, forget everything that you are supposed to be taking care of.
  2. Now think back of your happy days. Perhaps your school years? Just think of a time when you didn’t feel pressurized about being someone in life.
  3. Think about the things you loved to do. Things that you were interested in. Things that made you happy. Things that you were good in doing. Perhaps you were good in drawing or cooking? There has to be something you loved and were good in. No matter how small you think of this work and how absolutely silly and impossible it may seem to you now, just give it a chance.
  4. Now try to find the reasons for you to love that work. And try to find out if you still feel the same because if you do, you’ve found your passion.
  5. If that doesn’t help, then try to find something that interests you. Something that you would love doing for the rest of your life.

 

Life is never easy and we have to deal with tons of things. Sometimes responsibility, sometimes circumstances take away the chance of pursuing our passions. But you have to remember that you only live once and you deserve to be happy in this short period. Whatever it is that’s standing between you and your passion, you can overcome it. In this competitive world where everything is judged by its price, it won’t be easy to find your passion and follow it. But you must be strong and fight for it. You just have to trust in yourself, and success will come running after you.

Peace Out 🙂

Make It A Great Day

“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.” ~ Groucho Marx

How often do you tell someone ‘Have a great day’, or receive the sentiment yourself? It is a nice sentiment to offer, but it could be better.

‘Have a great day’ implies that you only hope the day goes well. You don’t anticipate having a bad day, but one never knows… You are only hoping the day goes as planned, but you are prepared for the worst. You are open to the idea that things will go wrong.

What if you improved your outlook a little, with only two words?

How about changing the phrase to ‘Make it a great day’? Does that not sound somewhat more inspiring? Somewhat more empowering even? It implies that the day is what you make it, so make it great.

Sure, you slept in, spilled coffee on your shirt, got stuck in traffic, and are late for work. It’s only 9am, and so far, it’s not looking like a great day. But because you are going to make it a great day, let the issues of the early morning go, and focus on how fantastic the rest of the day can be!

Even if at the end of it all, it seems like every single piece of your day was terrible, it’s how you choose to look at things that makes all the difference in the world.

This is the place, the proverbial line in the sand, where those with a positive attitude choose to make it a great day and be happy, and everyone else dwells on the fact that everything went wrong, and they are unhappy.

Start using the expression ‘Make it a great day’. Not only will it give you a positive outlook, but it will also give a positive vibe to those around you. Once you decide to embrace this motto, you will find yourself looking for the positive aspects in every part of your day.

Making it a great day is all about the little things that make you smile, make you feel good, and give you that happy feeling. It’s the little things that combine to create a big overall happiness. This could be something as simple as the plain old ham and cheese sandwich you eat for lunch tasting exceptionally good because you enjoyed it outside in the fresh air.

Maybe you make it a great day by doing something kind for someone else, such as giving up your seat on the bus for an elderly rider. Perhaps you love to cook, and you make it a great day by cooking a special dinner for your family using their favourite recipes.

You don’t have to wait until tomorrow to start having this new outlook. Do it today.

Have a Mojo Day 🙂
