The Secret to Finding Your Passion (Hint: It's Not What You Think)
Embrace this key idea and it will change your life: Clarity comes from engagement, not thought.
But taking action on something you suspect to be your passion is just part of the story. There's another important (and rarely discussed) piece to the passion puzzle.
And this, my friend, is the fastest, most powerful way to turn what you love into a business or career that can sustain you.
Proactively bring passion to everything you touch, to everything you do. No matter what task is in front of you, bring as much enthusiasm and energy to it as you possibly can. Bring your full attention, your full presence, the Godlike quality that each of us has within, to every task in your day.
Whether you're brushing your teeth, making love or cleaning the kitty litter—do it like you want to do it.
When you make this shift, you'll ignite business ideas and creative insights far beyond what your thinking mind alone is capable of.
And let's face it. Passion is contagious. When you're fully present and passionately engaged with your life, people around you take notice and want in on whatever you're doing.
Another side benefit to proactive passion is kicking life-sucking habits like procrastination, resistance and complaining straight to the curb.
