  • Meet your neighbor.
  • What are common themes? (1 minute)
  • To Avoid The Waste Land.
    To Encourage: Passionate Living
  • So the title of this workshop is a bit of a misnomer.
  • To know what you’re willing to suffer for, to understand the types of things you’re willing to dedicate your life to, or a portion of your life to. It has to be deep.
    What are you willing to suffer through? Suffer through the work, the shit to get to the success that may or may not come?

    You have to start. Where do you start?

    So the question is, how do you start to grow your passions?
  • You’ll get what you put into it.
  • The best of the best, distilled from our passion coaches.
  • While times may change the way the world looks and operates, values remain steadfast and help you navigate your world, regardless of its shape, size, and velocity, its fierceness and its never-ending wonder. Your values become your compass.
  • (3 minutes)
  • Pass around list of values. Write down.
  • Surround yourself with like-minded peers
    Find your heroes
    You’re the average of the five people you hang around most.
  • It’s commonly said that you’re the average of the people you hang around most. It makes sense. If you’re constantly surrounded by people who have no ambitions to quit their jobs or go on big adventures, or worse, who want to do these things, but have given up, then you’ll forever feel crazy in your ambitions. You’ll never have the support network needed to make a big move.
