What people usually do is they look for passion in a certain job that is waiting for them somewhere out there. Do you really think ‘Passion’ resides in the existence of that ‘Specific job’?
Today the working class is hungry for passion. They feel that passion is what could drive them to success and it is, in fact, the truth! But what they don’t know is that passion doesn’t come in a ‘Package deal’ within that particular job. It’s a whole deal of an emotion that comes within ‘Thyself’! Think about it for a moment, how can a job drive you crazy excited to be all over it all the time? If that doesn’t help, how about a time when you felt that excitement on the first day of your job? That’s right, that is exactly what passion is all about. It comes within the individual and not within a job.
Now that you know the source of passion, next comes the part where you feel the need to develop and ignite that passion within you. Just sit back and relax, we have it all under control!
1) Explore yourself:
First and foremost, you need to explore yourself. Identify and point out that zealous factor within you that has been trying to get out and flaunt to the world of what it has to offer. That factor is indeed your passion, residing in there somewhere, lost because you have been over-looking it. But remember, you’ll always find it sitting somewhere in the corner of your inner-self, it exists within your existence!
2) Stop complaining:
You need to stop whining, complaining and telling yourself that your dream job awaits about which you’d be passionate to deal with. You will be making the biggest mistake of your life! Try and look for the positives in your current career/job, list them down for a week or so and then review them against your list of negatives. You will realize how much of the good you have been missing all that time.
3) Good night’s sleep:
A good night’s sleep helps not only reduce stress but also removes the clutter in your head thereby making lots of way for the clarity to stay. When you wake up fresh in the morning, your mind and body both will coordinate to achieve the assigned goals for the day. Also, you’ll become more vigilant about everything going on around you and remember, a good observer is indeed a very good visionary.
4) You are the best:
Yes, you are the best! Consider yourself a person who’s best at what he does best, don’t go all boasting about it, it is a better option to keep this within you until someone else appreciates it and when that someone or some people does so, that passion ignites on the inside and become more exuberant. So let that fire spread to the fullest!
5) Evaluation time:
Now, it is time for some self-evaluation. Considering and working on all the factors above, evaluate yourself, make a list of everything and put a check against it. Do it monthly and become your own competition!
You have the right equipment, YOU! The ultimate moral support, YOUR PASSION! And just the perfect moment in time, NOW! Start going over it from today onwards, it’s never too late.
