Whether it’s for ourselves or the world around us, we all have a dream and a desire to see it come true. As much as COVID-19 has impacted our society, 2020 is still the summer to make your dreams into your reality.
Let’s talk about passions and how we can fill our lives with them.
Engage With Your Passions—Positive and Negative
Passions are the batteries that keep us human and alive, but when people think of the word passion, they often only consider half of what it represents.
People tend to think of passions exclusively as positive emotions, e.g.. “I love drawing, therefore I should be an artist”. This is a valid way to go about your life and feel fulfilled, but plenty of people forget that they can be passionate about negative things too.
Are you passionate about injustices in your community? How about social issues such as homelessness and drug abuse? If something starts a fire in your heart and drives you to action, then this could be the road that life is pulling you towards.
Put. In. The. Work.
Most people who excel in life simply put in more effort than the next person. This is something that not a lot of people like to hear, but it doesn’t make it any less true.
Right now, even with the pandemic limiting our options, Canadians are taking every easy opportunity that the summer offers: sleeping in, spending hours swaying in a hammock, or putting off the chore list to go for a nice run.
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying these opportunities, but don’t expect them to put you further ahead in your career or bring your ideas into reality.
Want to become a success while doing what you love for a living? Put in the necessary time and then some. Wake up early to study your industry, finish your tasks ahead of time to brainstorm a better product, pass on dinner plans to perfect your business plans—make these sacrifices today to stay ahead of the curve and make tomorrow the time you’ve been dreaming of.
Determining your life’s purpose is never easy, requiring plenty of soul-searching and tough conversations with yourself. If you want to make your dreams a reality and live a life of passion and purpose, visit my website today.
