Concentrate on Passions Or Goals?
Importance of Passions vs. Goals-
Concentrate on your passions vs. your goals and watch what happens. Do you find it difficult to find success, happiness, and purpose in life while others seem to swim in it? Do you put your hobbies and passions on hold for a “someday”?
I have been extremely goal oriented my whole life, but now that I look back, I realize I didn’t always follow my passions. If you follow your passions, your goals will automatically identify themselves effortlessly.
So, just what is your definition of passion (non-relationship, of course)? Here are some thoughts. Which ones are right for you? These questions would be great items to journal about, too.
* Fires you up
* Can’t you stop thinking about
* Brings you joy
* Can’t you wait to do when you leave work
* Interests you on a high level
* Challenges you
* Is chicken soup for your soul
Because it isn’t always easy to throw our jobs or careers to the side to follow our passions, I would like to challenge you. Your number one goal should be every year for the next five years to increase your awake time spent on your passion by 20% each year. And, maybe 20% is too much. Adjust the percentage to fit your situation, but don’t be stingy.
Opportunities will start to open. Watch for synchronicities that are the coincidental occurrence of events. If you doubt this, ask your friends and family members that are living their dreams how they got there.
