Most people live an ordinary life, not an extraordinary life. I honestly don't believe that people even know they have a choice. Society has taught us to look at our skills and see what we are good at and then go to school, choosing a career that we can make money from, to support us. There is very little being taught that we were created for a purpose and we are not only allowed, it is our reason for being here, to find our passion and purpose and fulfill it.

I don't believe that people cannot find their purpose and make a living. I believe people limit their thinking and creative minds, and therefore feel they are forced to settle in life. We were created to have joy and fulfillment, to seek out our value and meaning in life, and leave it behind. Most people living a mediocre life, feel they have no value. This is common, but so not true.

Dare to believe in yourself and you will discover a new world, a new life. One in which it may require hard work and faith, but it will truly be worth it, to fight for your purpose, your dream. Be among the few who believe that life is worth actually living. The more we understand this, the more we grasp that we are here to serve our purpose, to give back, the more our dream comes to life.

And that, is what I believe and teach people :)

Passion is a vital ingredient in any field of human endeavor. But of course practical considerations usually will intrude. For instance if you are seeking to indulge your passion in the form of an income producing activity such as a business, then passion alone will not cut it because some passions are not economically viable.

It's actually very simple. Whatever you do in life, if you're not passionate about it, you're going to give it up unless you have to do it in order to survive - which is a very low kind of awareness or mentality that you should avoid at all costs.

As Steve Jobs said, if you don't love what you're doing then there's no point in doing it because to become great in any field or area in life, you have to grind and struggle and a sane person would give that up, unless they actually loved their work.

If you don't follow your passion what's the point of living then?

I've heard many times that doing this, it's not always is a good idea, you could neglect other important areas of your life like finances or familly, what do you think about ?
Your passion can be found anywhere. If you stick to only one "passion", your true passion may pass you by without seeing it. You need to keep your eyes open at all times and look for it. When you see something of interest, look into it.
You need to remember that anything you do can be turned into a passion. What is it that you truly enjoy doing that you do not get paid for? What is it that you know about that you could talk about forever? Dig deep - IT'S THERE! You just have to find it.
I have been in search of the elusive "SUCCESS" for longer than I can remember and let me tell you, it has led me down many paths that I have elected to go down and find out more about.....

Don't forget to network a little when you find something of interest. There is plenty of mastermind groups, mentors and life coaches out there can help you clear up the picture for you.

Hope that helps out.

Yes definitely, do what you love and love what you do is essential!

I'll take a deeper look at this. I'm human as everyone else is and I'll share what I know.

Everyone has passion, and beneath each passion, lies specific intangibles that fuels the motivation naturally. For me, its soccer. What about soccer do I like? It lets me play freely and be natural around my team mates, opponents and spectators. Its also the moment I enter "the zone" or being in flow. What about playing naturally that I love most? It lets me express what I want to do when I have the ball and contribute to my team. Why I like to express myself and contribute? Its because I dwell in creativity and prefer to leave a positive mark

So creative and leaving a positive mark is the intangibles that I want. I don't play soccer professionally or even in Sunday leagues anymore. But when I do, I get all the same exact feeling. These days I channel creative pursuits into building passive income. It allows me to help others, be creative to create what I want and work towards a lifestyle that I want.

Am I there yet? I'm at the start, but I don't feel the regret of not having soccer as a big part of my life. Instead, another outlet for creative expression opens up for me.

Not all passions are practical clearly. I am not trying to shoot down any form of studies, but if you have an art degree versus an engineering degree, which has a higher ROI?

Very often this depends on the needs and circumstances of the individual.

I would say yes but timing is important - you may have to be patient if you have other commitments - don't bury your dreams work out how they are possible and if they are really what you want with all the consequences. We all have to back decisions and be responsible for our actions.

You hardly can call yourself successful if you're not doing what you're passionate about. Successful people are dynamic people who are not afraid to explore different horizons in life. If for example you're passionate about art, go for it. On the other hand, think about how you can pursue doing this hobby. If you don't have the money and resources to continue, what would happen? It therefore pays to strategically plan things ahead. Learn more about how you can condition your mind to become successful by going through some helpful web sites.

You can have a lot of education and have marketable skills such as good computer and typing skills like me but it can do you no good, especially if there is a lack of jobs, especially decent jobs, and you are black. I'm not thriving in this economy.

Hi Todd, that sounds unusually negative for you, it would appear you have your own business, that's good, a job is considered Just Over Broke! You have the opportunity to name your success with effort belief and determination.
Are you having a bad day?

Best wishes read some motivational books. Life can be challenging but beat it! I'm 75 and white, left with three children to bring up and no job or maintenance but I turned things around with passing 6 exams in 5 months getting into teachers training and passing to find no available jobs, so went into commission only sales for 15 years and enjoyed it! Now I am developing an online business and wintering in the sun, I was also working part-time to fund it until 6 months ago! I bet you have youth on your side good health and a fledgling business, let the challenges make you stronger! The avatar is me a few years ago and one of my daughters who is my technical advisor as I am self taught and not very computer literate.

Regards...

Hi Todd I made comment earlier today, but I have just written an article on Ezinearticles which might interest you, it might not be publishes for a couple of days but it is called:

"How Satisfying is Your Work"
Satisfaction is a strange thing, a feeling of ease or elation about something, feeling your are rewarded, or have achieved. Here is a dictionary definition: "the fulfilment of one's wishes, expectations, and needs or the pleasure derived from this. When you consider how many hours your work involves it is important there is some degree of satisfaction or your days can be like a life sentence.....

A human who lives holiday to holiday or event to event can never implement happiness or passion fully into their life. If one shifts their mindset to a journey focus they will realize every moment, every single moment of our lives we have the option to do a task with passion.
Good observation! You do have the option of choosing passion in every moment.

I try to stay positive but I was also pointing out that having a lot of education and skills does not automatically guarantee you will succeed and have a good job. Besides having determination, you must have plenty of opportunity in the job market.

If their passion are legal well of course verybody should. You can't be happy if you do thing you don't like. Too many people have boring job. People think they need a secure job.. when actually what is the true purpose of life in my opinion: Hapiness.
