If you’re struggling to find your Passionate Purpose, I get it. I spent years trying to figure it out. Along the way I’ve had several different PPs. Yes, you can have more than one and they can change as you grow.
That’s what I want you to know today. There’s more than one way to find your calling. One way is no more “right” than any other.
Some people are struck by lightning when they’re young, the know why they were born and they pursue their passion for the rest of their lives.
Others try a bunch of different ideas until something resonates with them. They keep going with it until their desire builds or burns out.
Maybe you’re like me and you need to spend time searching for your purpose that will lead you to the extraordinary life of your dreams. I spent countless hours thinking introspectively to determine why I was here. I read books, listened to tapes, attended seminars, watched videos, kept journals, and did all kinds of exercises.
That works for me. I put that in the present tense because I continue to work on personal growth. I love learning this stuff. But that’s me, not necessarily you.
You might do best trying a combination of these methods, or something totally different might get you where you want to go.
Even after you think you know what your Passionate Purpose is, you will still take some detours and hit some speed bumps along the way. You might decide to change your mind and pursue something else.
All of this is OK.
Walk your own path.
Some things are the same for all successful people. They know what they want, why they want it, they take consistent action and – even if they stall out for a while – they keep going.
Questions: 1) If you’re stuck, which method(s) will you try to get you started on what you want.
2) What action can you take right away to get you on your path?
