Discover YOU: Finding Your Passion

One of the worst feelings to have as an adult is confusion about career direction or next steps in life. Nobody teaches you about passion, and how it can change your life.. Why didn’t someone sit us down and tell us that this was an important factor in happiness? Not having passion often causes confusion and depression.. Who do you turn to? What steps do you take?

Let’s start with what Passion is. Passion- is a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something. This feeling is truly amazing and no one should give up or stop looking for it. I wanted to give you five tips to finding your passion aka “Discovering You”

1. Make List: Writing and putting things into perspective will start to make your vision clear. Get a special journal dedicated to this journey or download the Evernote App to create a journal. Start simple and make  three list one for skills, careers, and hobbies. Under each title you will write down things you’re good at,  can’t live without, or things you want to explore.  On the top of every page  that you are using in your journal  find and copy one quote about either passion, dreams, and never giving up. Before you start each list try to   read and repeat each quote. These lists are for your eyes only don’t be scared, just write and get it down on paper. When you get free moments throughout the day read/edit each list. Remember positive thoughts will create a positive outcome. Which brings me to our next tip.

2. Positive energy: It is important to have positive people and items around you every day. Purchase a book or download an app about starting over/motivation. Keep this for the days that you feel completely lost. Next find one person that you can count on to give you a pick me up when feeling down. This can be a friend, coworker, or even a social media network.

3. Find a hobby: You might be surprised a hobby is a good way  find the passion burning inside. Remember to schedule in time to focus on this hobby at least once every week. Consistency and excitement are key. If you keep this up for thirty days its time to evaluate yourself, because this is a great accomplishment. Rate your passion for this from 1-10 . Can you make an income off of this? If your answer is no, that’s okay, not every passion is a career change. . Remember finding your passion sometimes is just part of finding your happiness.

4. Stay Inspired: This is important in your journey. Staying inspired will fill you up, and help you to keep fighting for your passion/happiness. A simple thing you can do is create a gallery of pictures on your phone or if you feel real crafty use magazines etc. Create an album entitled “Inspiration”. In this album you should have pictures of things that really inspire you IE. beautiful destinations, wonderful artwork, future home, etc. Make sure weekly you update or edit pictures. Use this as a tool to keep your heart racing. Also, stay around people that are doing what you would like to do. They will inspire you to keep going.

5. Never Give up: Simply put. Life is a journey and you owe it to yourself to keep pushing. Enjoy the happy moments and embrace the sad ones. Focusing on the why’s will not bring you to the solution. Always keep in mind “There are many things in life that will catch your eye, But only a few will catch your

Another thing I have always believed is that laptop computers have become a product that each residence must have for some reasons. They provide convenient ways in which to organize the home, pay bills, go shopping, study, listen to music and perhaps watch tv series. An innovative way to complete these types of tasks is a notebook. These computer systems are portable ones, small, robust and easily transportable.

  20. Throughout the grand scheme of things you’ll secure a B- for effort. Where you lost us was first on your specifics. You know, they say, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be more correct in this article. Having said that, allow me tell you just what did work. Your writing is certainly quite engaging which is possibly why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that.

Depending on the credit cards, you may get 1 back on most acquisitions, and 5 back on expenditures made from convenience stores, filling stations, grocery stores as well as ‘member merchants’.

  22. I have seen that car insurance providers know the vehicles which are prone to accidents along with risks. In addition, they know what type of cars are prone to higher risk and also the higher risk they’ve got the higher the premium price. Understanding the simple basics connected with car insurance will let you choose the right kind of insurance policy that should take care of the needs you have in case you become involved in an accident. Appreciate your sharing the particular ideas with your blog.

The other matter is that if a problem develops with a computer motherboard, individuals should not have some risk of repairing it themselves for if it is not done correctly it can lead to irreparable damage to the full laptop. It’s usually safe to approach any dealer of your laptop for that repair of that motherboard. They will have technicians that have an know-how in dealing with notebook computer motherboard problems and can get the right diagnosis and perform repairs.

  24. The following time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I know it was my option to read, but I really thought youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you could fix should you werent too busy looking for attention.

  25. Thanks for the suggestions about credit repair on this amazing site. The thing I would advice people will be to give up the particular mentality that they may buy at this moment and pay later. Being a society all of us tend to do this for many factors. This includes trips, furniture, as well as items we wish. However, you’ll want to separate a person’s wants from all the needs. When you are working to raise your credit score actually you need some trade-offs. For example you are able to shop online to economize or you can go to second hand retailers instead of costly department stores intended for clothing.

  31. I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing problems with
    your website. It appears as if some of the written text in your content are running
