Uncover Your Passion & Find Your Place in the World
There’s a quote that says, “If your path demands you to walk through hell, walk as if you own the place.” What an amazing quote because life is not always berries and picnics. Sometimes life demands us to hit rock bottom to rise again as the strong person we are called to be.
How do you deal with loss? What is your reaction towards unforeseen sickness? What do you do when life knock you down?
Your calling is like a star; you don’t see it shine bright until the dark comes. Everyone has a place here on earth. Whether you believe it or not, you deserve the absolute best. But for you to expose the best, you have to go through the worst. That way you can appreciate the best when it arrives.
To find your passion you have to be vulnerable with a discernment spirit to listen when life calls out to you to follow a specific path. And if it’s hell you have to go through to manifest your calling, you walk those streets like a boss.
What’s Meant For You Will Not Pass You By
The truth is that you will not be ready until you’re ready. I can write a 5000 words blog or create different videos telling you to find your passion. Do this, do that, but until you are not ready, you will not make any move towards your calling.
To take a living proof example, I always knew that there’s more to my life than living a day-to-day life, working from paycheck to paycheck. However, I got too comfortable with life, that I didn’t want to make any necessary changes. I spent years reading so many personal development books, watching too many motivational YouTube videos, and still was not ready to make any moves.
Do you know people who are dreamers? They dream of the life they want, talk constantly about it. But when it comes to taking actions, there are too many excuses that it becomes impossible to motivate someone with this behavior. That was exactly me!
How crazy is it, to live most of our life running and pursuing the wrong things? No matter how much we see, we are never satisfied. Or how much we hear, we are not content. Pursuing the wrong things in life is like chasing the wind. It is completely meaningless.
The good news is that what’s meant for you will always arrive right on time.
How to Find Your Passion?
To find your passion is to stop ignoring what your soul is telling you to do. The things that you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling. You cannot find your place in the world by living based on other people’s opinions. Or by pursuing the same things everyone else is pursuing. Neither by living in your comfort zone.
Rock bottom is what will teach you to listen to your calling and start walking on the right path. 5 months after the doctors diagnosed me with facial paralysis. And losing everything that was comfortable to me, I can say that what is meant for you will not pass you by.
Life has a funny way of teaching us when we are not willing to listen. Because when we hit the lowest point, we are open to the greatest transformation. The lowest points in life triggers desperation, and desperation awakens new ideas and plans. Change is necessary when it comes to our comfort zone life.
If you are ready to create the life that you deserve, then here are 3 ways to help you step into greatness by finding out your place in the world.
3 Ways to Help You Find Your Place in The World
1. Find out what is constantly calling out to you
After a month with my condition, I started to question life. Like “Hey life, what are you trying to say?”, “What do you want to teach me?” I decided that I wanted to remain still to listen to my soul. I needed to understand that I was in a “learning season.” The things that I’ve been postponing and ignoring for a while wanted exposure.
I started to take so many of those “What’s my purpose?” and “How to find my passion?” tests and all these tests were giving me the same result. I decided you know what let me listen to my calling. And that’s how I started to follow what I’ve long awaited for.
I want to encourage you to take this test. It’s one of the tests I’ve taken and enjoyed the results.
2. Wake up and stop dreaming
Most of us never wake up long enough to do anything with our dreams. You may have great dreams for your life, but you prefer to stay asleep. Because when you wake up reality says, “Let’s put some work to these dreams” you will be like, “And I Oops.” How sad is it that most people never actually reach their dreams because it’s easier to dream of an idea than to work it out?
So, start to make some plans for your life, and set the necessary goals to achieve them. You don’t have to be a millionaire to be successful, you can start with what you have and work your way up.
On the other hand, you don’t need to monetize your passion, it is totally up to you. As long as you are comfortable with your decisions, then it is okay.
3. Do it wholeheartedly without giving up
The beginning of everything is hard, but consistency will help you reach success. Once you’ve found your passion do it wholeheartedly and stay persistent. Do not get tired of doing what is good. Because at just the right time you will reap a harvest of blessing if you don’t give up.
Conclusion: Find Your Passion
With the right mindset, you can create the life that you desire. You deserve the absolute best. You were born with power. Do not let it die inside you because of other’s opinions or your laziness. Realize what’s calling out to your name, find your passion. Work on it. Stop dreaming, by dreaming alone you cannot manifest your passion into existence. Once you’ve found it, do it wholeheartedly and let nothing stop you!
