So tell me, what’s different about your life and that of those you admire and who inspire you? At first glance, it may be that you think it’s money or fame. Often you will look at what possessions they have or how much money is in their bank account. Instead look deeper and make a list of the qualities that you admire. It may be that you are inspired by their skills, knowledge, generosity or temperament. What is it for you?
What do they have that you don’t? They have passion and live a purposeful life. They have something that they care about and are filled with a desire to make a difference; not just for themselves but for others. Have you ever noticed that about the people you admire? You know, they don’t have to be famous. It could be your child’s teacher, a favorite store manager or even your next door neighbor.
Your life can be fulfilling. Living a life of passion and purpose is possible for everyone. You do not need to be rich, famous or highly educated. You only think you do! But, is that what you really think?
To find your passion and purpose you need to discover what you really want. Don’t just consider material objects, look deeper at lifestyle, relationships, your health, and emotions.
For a positive difference to take place you don’t need to give up your job and follow your calling 100% of the time. You can start small and paint your masterpiece or write your novel in your spare time. This will allow you to begin to feel the benefits of doing what you love and feeling the positive effects and changes while still working and earning an income. Did you think about that? You can do both, so many people do.
Not everyone wants to change the world. It may be that you want to make a difference by volunteering at the local homeless shelter. Your desire to bring about positive change in the lives of others, less well off than yourself, will bring about an enormous change in your life. You will experience the joy of giving and in return feel a sense of satisfaction. In addition, you’ll probably pick up new skills, make new friends and connections and discover other changes you want to make in your own life.
Everyone deserves to live their best life. All you need to do is find what you really want to do that can make you feel excited, joyful, engaged and fulfilled. That way you can begin to live your best life instead of settling for a humdrum existence. I know that I always feel better when I have a purpose to get up in the morning to start my day. Then it fuels my entire day with joy and happiness.
