Everyone has a roadmap to achieve their own personal positivity. Although each individuals map can change as their thoughts, opinions, choices and influences change, I’ve found that one thing allows for positive life progression: Living passionately.
For me it’s pretty simple. It’s keeping a strong work-life balance and constantly making time for and working at living passionately.
This may not be a popular opinion, but I’ve found that passion is something that cannot be ‘willed’, nor is it something that just comes to you at the right time, when you need it most.
Of course, everybody has a different experience of this and I’d love to hear yours. But actually working at living passionately and not just letting it (or not letting it, for that matter) fall into your lap, is what I’ve found time and time again, to make the perfect storm for a happy, passion-filled life.
The first, “Sell it with enthusiasm”.
I’ve found that these quotes ring true to me when I think of passion. I’ve found that being positive and enthusiastic are the biggest steps to living passionately, happily and contently. Whatever your passions are, regardless of your age, I feel that the messages in the quotes stay strong.
To live passionately, happily and contently, we need to understand that we live in the age of unlimited opportunities. The adage “you can be anything” has never rung more true.
Yet still, to get anywhere at anything, I feel as though I need to continually work at it. And a passion-filled life is no different. I’ve found that you need to be enthusiastic enough about your passion, that you make time to do it and enjoy it.
If you have passions but no time, your passion can turn into a forgotten past-time… very quickly.
Maybe it’s time to give your mates a call on the average Wednesday. Or for you, it may just be heading down to the beach at 5am and get in the water. Because at the end of the day, you and me alike need to allow ourselves to live passionately and to spend the energy making it a reality.
Essentially, I’ve found that it comes down to what the individual wants out of life and making the time to do it… and do it enthusiastically and with a great attitude.
But overall, I try to maintain a positive disposition. And this works for me. This is how I maintain my passion and I think it’ll work for me moving forward.
