As I stated in Spoiler Alert: You're Gonna Die the average person lives about 75 years. That's 27,374 days on average here on this spinning rock. In this post I want to talk about the benefits of harnessing the power of your passion for the remainder of those days.
First, you should realize that to find out what it is that you are passionate about is going to take a lot of trial and error. Very few people realize what it is they have a passion for early in life. So for the rest of us, it takes experimenting and failing with a lot of different things. And there is no shame there either, figuring out life is fucking hard! Maybe your passion is art, helping people through charity work, finding a way to beat the stock market, or being an accountant and making a bunch of numbers match and make sense. Hey I'm sure there are people out there somewhere just not this guy!
Here I am going to show you 3 Benefits of Discovering your Passion.
1. You get to be your most authentic self and can stop painful self doubt. That gnawing feeling that you aren't good enough. Why? Because you stop seeking outside approval and begin to tap into what makes you...you! Instead of not expressing your opinion on things, or expressing it and not having anyone give a shit, suddenly you will become a person people actually come to for advice because, you will have authenticity and a realness about your life that many in the world lack. You will give yourself permission to be awesome.
2. You will encourage others. No longer will you feel the need to compare yourself to other people because you will be too busy creating the life you want. Finding what your passion is, is really just a great way to purge negativity from your life. A lot of people put others down because they don't feel they are good enough on their own. Not you, once you discover what really gets your blood flowing, you will find yourself more willing to help others get to the place in their lives where you are. A place filled with joy, hope, and love.
3. You will jump out of bed! Finding your passion is a great way to tap into your enthusiasm for life. You will suddenly come to a place where there just aren't enough hours in the day. Boredom can't exist when you are constantly looking and finding different ways to improve and perfect whatever it is you are passionate about.
Bonus: Your will become prolific. See what I did there? lol Once you begin moving towards your passion you will become one of the most productive people you know. Were you aware that Prince recorded about 65 albums, 136 music videos and released 97 singles? Now, not all of them were master pieces but they were all pieces produced by a master, who was passionate about his craft. I mean we can all agree that Prince was a bad mofo :)
Do you think Prince had to drag himself out of bed to go to the studio? Of course not because he had a passion for his music. Being prolific is a sure sign of discovered passion.
So there you have it, 3 benefits and a bonus :) of discovering your passion. I challenge and encourage you to begin to look for and discover your passion. The world needs you to find out what it is. We have been living too long without a passionate you!
Best of life, Kris
