power from passion

I am high on life.

It sounds corny I know, but it’s true.

I feel alive. My heart feels bigger and is brimming with gratitude.

All because I truly LOVE what I do.

I have just finished a group vision and goal coaching session. This is one of my biggest passions, and when expressed, a powerful energy flows through me. I feel like I can accomplish anything! (To read my post on living your passion click here)

I haven’t always felt this way. In fact, this is probably the first time in my life. And it’s solely the result of consistently focusing on what I love:

communication. inspiration. personal growth.

By focusing on these things, I have brought more of what I love into my life. It’s the law of attraction working.

For me, the barrier between work and play has been removed. I don’t live for the weekends, I no longer dread Monday or celebrate Friday. I have a true balance in my life. My time ebbs and flows effortlessly between my personal, professional and social lives.

To tell the truth, I never really believed it was possible to feel this way. A few years ago I thought that stress, anxiety and the pressure of the daily grind were just part of life. Nope, turns out it was just part of the wrong life for me.

I yearned for something more. I made some big changes. And with those changes opened up new possibilities.

I now know my purpose.

I know what I was put on this earth to do. I have found my happiness through teaching happiness.

Its taken many years for me to stand in this place, and I’m forever grateful for the winding journey. I dedicated a lot of time towards self exploration and enquiry. It was frustrating at times, wanting to know all the answers right NOW! I tried to remain patient, as I knew that with time what I was searching for would come organically.

I now know more about myself, and as a result feel more connected to who I truly am. To what’s authentically me.

So my advice to you – get out of your head, and listen to what your heart is saying.

Listen again .  .  .  listen harder.

Your body intrinsically knows what it truly desires.

What do you LOVE to do? The more you pay attention to your heart – to your passions, to what excites you – the clearer the message will become.

It will become so loud that you can no longer ignore it, or push it aside for a rainy day.

It will force you to act upon it, and your life will never be the same again.

  1. Great insights spoken from someone who is obviously living from a position of happiness and passion. I am right on the cusp of the same revelation (or some would say revolution) and am loving the crescendo. Thank you for the words of inspiration … they are quite contagious 😉

    • Dave – I would definitely say ‘revolution’ 😉
      It’s wonderful that you are embracing your passion. It takes a certain courage to move out of your comfort zone, but a move that will be highly rewarding I’m sure.
      Thank you so much sharing your thoughts, I really appreciate it.

    Terrific to read such a positive and inspiring post. I wish that more of our world leaders and politicians had similar levels of passion, focus, energy, self-awareness and positivity!

    • Sandra – wow, thank you for that very generous feedback :).
      I think the day will come when they do. There’s only so much you can achieve working in isolation, from a place of fear and blame. The time will come when our leaders will finally work together, as a true team to achieve a greater common good. I hope it happens sooner rather than later.

    I agree Sandra. Beautiful entry Jules.

There is so much beauty to be found in the perceived flawed, the unravelled, the imperfect, the raw & the crumbling. If we could see this within ourselves as well as we can appreciate it in the outside world, oh what a joy it would be! 🙌🏼
How much self love & appreciation there would be, along with a total disregard for comparison. 💕
YOU are perfect!
👌🏼 Missing the heat, the bright blue skies & the beautiful madness that is Morocco. (But most of all missing my twin & travel buddy! 😢) What an adventure we had 🙌🏼 😂 those Sunday feels . . . ✌🏼If I could leave the house wrapped in my doona,
I would. Brrr ❄️ Oh how I've missed the food from home! Such fresh, healthy, delicious goodness 😍 🌱
This is a Buddha Bowl from my local vegan cafe - quinoa, Kim chi, satay tofu, beetroot relish, roasted pumpkin & rocket. SO GOOD! 😋(My Nan even had her first vegan meal & loved it - she wants to buy cashew cheese 😂!) "It feels good to be lost in the right direction" ✌🏼💙 Wandering the lanes in one of my favourite places in Morocco, a blue city built into the mountain side. The secret tonic to creativity. To living a life of freedom, vitality, exploration & adventure 🙌🏼
