Over the years I have spoken with many “Unhappy People” young and old. Many of them who felt like they were not living out their passion nor pursuing purpose. The problem is that many of us have collided with destiny. So what do i mean? Many of us without knowing constantly come into conflict with our purpose and that can be down to varying reasons however the biggest being the choices we are making daily.
Have you ever felt like no matter how hard you work and no matter how much bigger your pay cheque is, you are just never satisfied? In a recent poll we took on our Facebook page as high as 94% people said they are not happy and given the chance would walk away from a 9-5 to pursue their passion and live out their purpose. This figure coming from almost all the people was astonishing.
I always tell people you can walk into your office today and quit if you wanted to, because you have that power to do so. However, before you can pursue whatever you think or believe your dream is, you need to figure out what you are passionate about because believe me, this will keep fuelling your fire when you seem to not be producing fruit during your transition period.
However cementing your passion in concrete is not always easy as it comes with its own challenges. Before building my thriving business in coaching Mommy’s who would like to transition from employment into self employment/entrepreneurship, I spent many years in a well paying Government job that left me less than satisfied daily. Even with all the nice perks it came with something was always missing.
However, being in that job wasn’t all bad because it re-affirmed my long life dream of wanting to be self employed. It was in that job that I also discovered my passion to empower others was propelled and cemented. Then when unexpectedly my health hit rock bottom and I was met with a life altering surgery that meant I could no longer go to work, I knew this was reality knocking on my door.
I know for many people passion can mean many things and for me its not career oriented only. It is one’s life work, the legacy you build and leave behind to as simple as bringing joy to others. Figuring out what makes your feet tap and your heart beat can be a challenge, however, if you can answer these questions then you are getting closer to finding your passion.
- 1: What do I really want?
- 2: What am I good at?
- 3: How can I best serve others?
- 4: How can I meet my financial needs?
