live your passion

The following quote jumped off the page of a book I read recently –

“Live your passion. What does that mean anyway? It means that when you get up in the morning, you are pumped because you get to talk about or work with or do the thing that interests you the most in the world. You don’t live for vacations because you don’t need a break from what you’re doing – working, playing, and relaxing are one and the same. You don’t even pay attention to how many hours you’re working because to you, it’s not really work. You’re making money, but you’d do whatever it is you’re doing for free.”Β – Gary Vaynerchuk

What are your passions?

Are you living them?

If not, what is holding you back?

Your are made up of a unique set of passions, things that speak to your soul and light you up. Β Your passions make you feel truly alive, and self-expressed. You are your best version of yourself when living them.

What would your life look like if you chose to harness these passions? What if you actually got paid to do what you love? What kind of personal power and freedom would be possible for you?

Some people have the archaic belief that they will never make any money doing what they love, but in today’s world this has never been further from the truth. People all over the world today are earning a living doing exactly that. With the rise of the information society, and social media people can now monetize their passions, hobbies, and interests like never before. We spend the majority of our lives at work, why not spend it doing what you love most?

My Dad always told me ‘do what makes you happy, and you’ll be great at it’. This is something that has always resonated with me.

Do what you love. Follow your heart. Success will follow.

It’s as simple as that.

You owe it to yourself, life is too short not too.

A note to you, and to me: Step back. Look at the bigger picture. We as humans have the tendency to think worst-case-scenario, to dramatise, to catastrophise our current or future circumstances. Our brains are hard-wired with a strong negativity bias 🧠 (so know its not your β€˜fault’ πŸ˜‰) Knowing this, it’s YOUR JOB (& mine!) to calm the mind, to gain perspective, to think about the best case scenarios & to realise that you are NOT your mind, you are not that negative voice in your head. You are not your emotions. You my dear, are the body & soul that holds that mind. You are the person that plays witness to the minds constant thinking. So don’t let your bad days make you feel like you have a bad life. You have the power of perspective, choice & personal responsibility. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ #mindfulness #perspective #monkeymind
