Passions in Action
It is time to become your passions. This practice is a form of visualization but is going a bit deeper than the last exercises. Words have power. The written word creates a visceral response. This means that your reaction will create deep and emotional feelings versus reason, thought, or intellect.
This week select 3 of your top passions. Each passion should have its own piece of paper. Do not use the computer. This is a pen and paper exercise.
Write three to five sentences that describe what your life will look like as if you were living your passions today. I call these your “signposts”. You’ll know your passions are alive when you notice these “signposts” materializing.
Don’t write about how you will get there.
Do not use negative words like “don’t,” “no,” or “not.”
Use positive words. Have fun and use some “wacky” words, too.
I’ll put myself out there and use one of my passions as an example.
Passion: I’ve introduced the power of journaling to many people.
1. I have sold 3,000,000 copies of my books.
2. Everyone recognizes my book cover as the premier journaling series.
3. The world is a happy place.
4. I live a stress-free life while living this passion.
Let your passions happen. It isn’t going to help to force anything. It is essential to pay attention and be open to opportunities that start to pop up. For instance, this past week two people asked me if I would do some journaling classes for their clients and organizations. So, maybe I won’t sell 3,000,000 books, but I’m open to other ideas of living my passion.
