The daunting quest of how to find your passion is one that most of us embark on, yet we can feel almost lost in its shadow.
Everyone talks about it.
The promised land. The life you wake up to that genuinely ignites the flame within and provides a deep sense of authentic fulfillment. The work that really means something to you.
Not knowing the secret formula that delivers us to these shores of paradise can make us feel overwhelmed, confused and alone.
But I don’t believe it has to be so complicated. Nor do I believe that it has to necessarily be hard. In fact, finding your passion can be incredibly easy (and enjoyable) once you know how.
See, I believe that we all hold the secret to our passion and purpose within ourselves. It all comes back to de-cluttering our minds of lots of learned junk that keeps us lost and opening ourselves up to the spark within us that is waiting to break free.
Watch my video Why You Cant Find Your Passion (And What To Do About It) below to start radically changing the whole way you approach finding your passion and the number 1 way to begin revealing it to yourself.
Then, have a go at the below 30 questions to begin triggering some key passion indicators within yourself.
Remember, no matter what emotions arise (fear, judgement, regret etc), be as honest with yourself as you can be.
Most importantly, have fun answering the questions and do not hold back!
