Passion + Purpose + Profit = Best You!

What’s Your Passion?

"I wonder if I..."

A lot of people I work with tell me they would do what they want to do if they just knew what it was. The say, “I just don’t know what my passion and purpose is!” 

Well, here are some simple ways to find out.

Get in a quiet place, where there is no noise or distraction. Ask yourself the following questions, and write down the answers without thinking about them too long.  The gift is embracing what most quickly comes to mind on first instinct.

Take the “Find Your Purpose” Quiz:

  • What did you most enjoy doing as a child?
  • What were your favorite cartoon characters and toys?
  • What type of movies do you enjoy watching over and over again?
  • What do you find yourself doing when you don’t notice time has passed by?

Now, reflect on your answers. Do you notice a theme threading them together?

Do you find yourself gravitating towards helping people, seeking justice, wanting to travel, write, or speak? Do you enjoy creating things with your hands, or fixing problems that have no apparent solution? What do you notice as a reoccuring theme of problems and solutions?

"I'm thinking I notice..."

Feel Your Zeal

Studies tell us the formative years are between the ages of 8 and 13. This is a good time to ponder attitudes which may have been rooted which give you a passion for purpose. This zeal is your natural gift to the world, and a powerful indicator of where you will most likely be successful.

Another great thermometer test to uncover your special brand of brilliance, is in the compliments you receive from people who know you. For example, maybe people comment on your ability to work well with children, and you have been contemplating a career in education.  Perhaps you have been given accolades for your organizational skills, just when you considered opening a virtual assistant business.  There is no right or wrong to you, the key is to be aware of your strenghts, accept them, and subsequently find a compatible venue to optimize each one.

“Until you discover your “fire within” you will remain condemned to a life only endured, not lived; to delicacies only tasted, not devoured; to joys only imagined, not experienced. And in old age you will lament the days of your youth, when fears about money and security kept you from taking the leaps of faith and courage in the direction of your dreams.”

The Test of Time

What are you doing when time is passing, and you feel no sense of time at allWhat are you engaged in thinking, feeling, hearing, or speaking, when you suddenly look up at the clock and exclaim, “I can’t believe it’s already 3:00, where did the time go?!”  Pay attention to your own behavior as a strong source of good direction.

"I am Priceless!"

Most importantly, know you are not an accident! You are here for a definite purpose, to do a specific thing, which no one else can do in exactly the same way as you. 

“Be yourself.  Everybody else is already taken.”  Oscar Wilde
