I love admiring the beauty of the sunset and if there is a man playing the guitar, it couldn’t be any better ;)
Sunset is as well a perfect moment to think about some important questions about our life, like identifying our life purpose. It is a struggle almost every adult goes through and finding the answer isn’t an easy road, but it may be one of the most meaningful discoveries you’ll ever make in your lifetime.
There is something that you already know – everything sucks, some of the time. So probably the most important question you should ask yourself is:
- WHAT ARE YOU ABLE TO HANDLE? WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO PAY FOR YOUR DREAMS?
Everything includes some sort of cost. Nothing is pleasurable all of the time. A girl who loves fashion and wants to have her own second hand store or a shop with clothes, needs to do a lot of unpleasant tasks to be successful. Or there is a man who likes to repair cars, but if he has his own car repair shop, then he would need to have control over the all the financial reports, or paper work and so on and he probably wouldn’t love that. But it’s a part of their dreams. They have to do this to have what they want.
I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M DOING! EMBARRASS YOURSELF!
You also need also to remember – before you are able to be good at something and do something important, you must first suck at something and have no clue what you’re doing. That’s pretty obvious. And most people try to avoid embarrassing themselves, because it doesn’t feel good.
Amazing how things are, by their very nature, crazy and unconventional. That’s why, to achieve them, we must go against the herd mentality. And to do that is scary.
Feeling foolish and even afraid is part of the deal. The more something scares you, the more meaningful it is. Fear is a big “tell” that you are on your path with a purpose.
- WAKE UP A CHILD INSIDE YOU AND ASK WHY ARE YOU SAD?
When I was a child, I used to draw and write just for fun. I used to sit in my room for hours by myself, drawing away, and writing small stories, not because I wanted anyone to see it, not because I wanted to impress anybody but, just because I loved it. But then I stopped. And I don’t know why.
We all way to often lose touch with what we enjoyed when we were kids. We’re taught that the only reason to do something is if we’re somehow rewarded for it.
But my soul didn’t forget what I love. She wants it again and I can’t live without it anymore.
Now if the child inside me had asked today ‘Why don’t you create anymore?’ and I replied, ‘Because I’m not good at it and nobody would like it’ or ‘I can’t make money doing that’ then that child inside me would be very sad and I would have been completely wrong.
- WHAT MAKES YOU FORGET ABOUT WORLD AROUND YOU?
We’ve all had that experience where we get so absorbed in something that minutes turn into hours and hours turn into ‘Omg, I forgot to eat something’
Whatever it is, don’t just look at the activities that keep you up all night like scrolling internet sites without any purpose but look at the reasons behind those activities that enthral you.
And one last thought – Your couch is comfortable but nothing new happens there. And to find your passion, you must get off your couch and act, and take the time to think beyond yourself, to think greater than yourselfWhat most people don’t understand is that passion is the result of actions, not the cause of it. Our couch is comfortable, but nothing new happens there.
Discovering what you’re passionate about in life and what matters to you is a trial-and-error process. None of us know exactly how we feel about an activity until we actually do the activity.
Now go write down some Ideas you have long had in your mind and just go and try it. Maybe this is it!
I would love to hear your thoughts. Comment below!
