Short answer is a big fat YES. I am sure each and every one of us has had the thought of “I wish I could leave a mark on the world, to make my life worthwhile”. If not that exact thought, perhaps a feeling of envy for the people who have and do leave their mark. Mother Theresa, Thomas Edison, the inventors that had the inspiration to create, the car, the tractor, the typewriter, the computer, the lawn mower, the medical masters who broke through and created remedies for our ailments, the sports people who are masters of their games (cricket, footy, tennis, sailing) and the list is endless. One might ask “What make them so special?” Let’s take a look and explore.
ARE THEY PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT THEY DO?
They most definitely are. I believe these people know their purposes in life. To get to the top of their fields, they apply themselves daily to their passions, they dedicate their whole lives to that one thing that drives them on and they love doing it. With this amount of passion, inspiration and striving to achieve their goals they are rewarded with great outcomes, the feeling of success, I did it, I’ve been able to help people and often their efforts bring wealth and abundance. Their journeys were hard work, they faced obstacles/challenges and continuously stuck at it until they broke through to their glorious moments of victory.
I see these people as being different from the mainstream, they have courageous convictions and will stop at nothing to get the outcome they desire and they are brave enough to step out of their comfort zones. How many of us don’t even know what we are passionate about, can’t see past our noses to our purpose in life, or even to imagine the life we want for ourselves. We stay in our comfortable little coma, accept our lot (the norm) and soldier on with our boring repetitive lives until death do us part. Is this what we want? I sure as hell don’t.
HOW TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
To make a difference we need to do something different. There’s a quote that comes to mind “Nothing changes, if nothing changes”. We continue to do the same thing over and over and what do we get the same result. I mean truly people this is a logical sane statement and we are so numb and robotic (bit like sheep) we keep doing it. Why? It takes courage to step out of the norm, be different from the norm, be independent and brave enough to create a new norm for ourselves.
In order to make a difference we have to be different, do different, speak different, think different. In other words, you guessed it, get out of our comfort zones, take charge of our own lives and conquer our egos that constantly misguide us.
INDEPENDENT BRAVE THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS
Try the new, be brave and recognise our passion and follow that passion until the end. Our passions are always linked to making our world a better place. Ask questions like how can my passion contribute to others, contribute to our world, contribute to my life, make my life meaningful and fulfilled.
How do I recognise my passion you might ask? Some of us (me too) have been in our cosy coma for so long we think we may have lost touch with our passion. Perhaps you might want to write a book, play a musical instrument etc. All I did to get the ball rolling was to ask myself “What do I love doing?” I love to dance, I love to play sport, I love to create art, I love personal growth, I love gardening. From that list I decided I’ve might have left it too late to be a professional dancer, I’m a bit tired of gardening and artworks, love my bowls but…… and that left personal growth. Now I’m on it – it stood out like the proverbial. I looked at personal growth in my life and it has always been happening, always been there somehow, stimulates my being, makes me curious and excites me. I followed it and Hello To Happier Days was born.
Just as an aside I have “come across” (or been shown) all the help I needed to build my website, my tech skills have taken a giant leap, I now have an online business which I can do from home, from anywhere in fact, I have grown and grown, I’m in love with what I am doing and my life is meaningful, might help a few people and I feel more fulfilled. Furthermore, I have done this on a shoestring.
I say GO RECOGNISE YOUR PASSION AND GET STARTED!
TWO WAYS I MAYBE ABLE TO HELP YOU
I have many teachers who have helped me to more meaning and fulfillment in my life. The latest being the sequel movie to The Secret called “The Manifesting Movie” with a learning program attached. It is brilliant and just what I needed. It cost me a whole $40 odd Aussie dollars ($28 US). Do yourselves a favour, click on the above link and buy the teaching and it will turbo start your passion road to success. I am not affiliated with Aspire3 yet (hope to be soon) so the program is a gift from me.
Talking about our passions may have made you aware that an online business will get you launched. I started with Wealthy Affiliates only 3 months ago and I am powering. The training is excellent, the community supportive, helpful and warm consequently taking a lot of the pain and frustration out of starting a new venture. Best choice I ever made and I don’t say that lightly. Wealthy Affiliates are making a difference to our world and putting technology, the how and the way forward in our hands. I’m not going into all the details here, click on the link and all of your questions will be answered. Oh hey, you get to join for free for 7 days to try it all out. I thoroughly recommend these people, THEY ARE GENUINE.
I thoroughly suggest we claim our independent brave thoughts and actions, embrace the updated new version of ourselves and begin living meaningful, fulfilled and happy happy lives. I invite you to leave comments and experiences you might like to share to help us grow together. I like this new version of me big time.
Cheers now, Jill
