Having no passion for what you do in life overflows into all aspects of your life. You do not have the energy to contribute to your relationships and family. You lose interest in the hobbies that you used to love. Friends and family don’t find you ‘fun’ anymore and life feels hard, boring, and routine. It can affect your health. You become old before your time
Finding Your Life Passion
DISCOVERING YOUR What do you want to do TRUE PASSION with your life?

LIFE DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY! You have a choice. Star t exploring what makes you happy andwhat gets you excited about life! Living a passionate life will give you a whole new level of fulfillment!
FIRST Inventory of your talents What are you good at or have a natural skill for?
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE GOOD AT SOMETHING OR EVEN KNOW HOW TO DO IT FOR IT TO QUALIFY AS A PASSION For myself Its becoming a pilot Flying isn’t something I know how to do, but I know thats what I want to do with my life. It’s a passionate goal. Fears - Don’t let your fears stop you from pursuing your passion - Life is short. Sometimes we forget that ten out of ten people die. Never let fear keep you from living a fulfilling life.
SECOND Think about something you do that you get lost in, and don ’t want to stop. That’s passion. What’s something you like to do but never get enough time to do?
MUSIC For myself its music. I love writing songs and playing the guitar Its something that I could do all day and not even look at the clock.
EVALUATE YOUR DESIRES AND PASSION Is it more of an addiction than passion? Do you love it so much that it takes away from your family, faith, or financial stability? Whatever it is you do, keep it balanced and don ’t neglect important things in your life.
IT’S A HUNT Maybe you don’t know what your passion is or what you want to do with your life, that ’s okay! See this as a joyful hunt and adventure! Don’t put so much pressure on yourself to find it. You may discover your passion at the age of 17 or 50.
RECAP You just need to ask yourself a few questions Make a list of your talents, what are you good at? What’s something you do, that when you do it, you get lost in and forget about time? Finally, remember that it may not come overnight. It ’s a hunt!
Remember: Its all an adventure. You’re learning and growing as you go. Maybe life isn’t all about the destination, it ’s the journey.
