Did you hurt your bum? Have you fallen off the wagon? Here’s a post I wrote a while ago. It’s very appropriate for rekindling and keeping your passion.
I have unearthed a great passion about my life and that’s my ability to dream and by that, I mean BIG! What’s troubling is that the stars haven’t aligned for me nor will it for you! You will always be stacked with the unending conundrum that it’s never going to be perfect-far from it.
My point being is that you trudge ahead regardless of the meteors falling into your life. We can look at our lot in life as dangerous and threatening or we can approach it as an opportunity to create a system of shooting stars.
When life happens and it does, I desperately believe that I was made for greatness, though I have the same belief for you as well. But I can never make that true for you; you have to realize it solely on your own!
Do you shut down when sorrow enters your life, are you giddy when your life appears overcome with giddiness and do you only have fleeting happiness that is dependent on the occurrence of said happiness?
What is it that makes some succeed while others wonder, why not them? Here are a few tips to keep you on track:
1. My wonderful friend and sister Shanita Singh; who happens to be a John Maxwell coach recently told me to live life intentionally. It was an aha moment! According to www.freedictionary.com to have intention means to act, “deliberately” and with purpose.
How on purpose do you live your life? Do you control it or does it control you? Do you awaken knowing where you’ll lead your life or does it drag you along for the ride?
2. Stay focused. No matter what comes your way, you have the ability to get back on track. We all become unfocused at times, but you decide whether it’s takes up permanent lodging in your life or if it’s only an opportunity to deflect.
Get good at writing down a game plan and schedule to follow. Remember ideas are great, however unused and unimplemented they become useless.
3. When we fall into the victim mentality or slip into a state of hopelessness because our life is at a standstill or crumpling before us, it is often because we have yet to learn to love ourselves and share that with others.
When we look upon the world before us we quickly realize the insignificance of our problems. Seek to help and appreciate others, it often calms the tumultuous feelings imbibed in our lives. Being true to ourselves is one thing. Being true to others is the ultimate.
4. Stop waiting and wishing! So many of us are waiting for a sign, an opportunity or some fashion of divine intervention; have you considered that it has already come into your life?
Remember to keep your eyes and heart open… we often equate waiting as a spiritual position or something divinely ordained, but I’d like to assert that movement is always blessed and always harvested!
Many only ready, aim…unfortunately there’s no fire! When you are equipped, you’ll be rewarded.
What is it that you seek? What will bring you unending joy? Seek it out and if what you do now hampers your joy, find it for it is often right before you, waiting to be let into your life…
