Some of you want to be passionate about something in life and some of you have passion in your life but problem is that it takes all of it. Yes there are two kind of problem here not having a passion and forcing on your passion a lot.
The problem of not having the passion can be solved by finding your passion but it is easier said than done. You have got very uncomfortable at first to find your passion. But most of us do not what to do that. They just what to live in the comfort that there life is in right now and do not what to change it.
But there are some of us how are satisfied with what we have now and want more. But you have to find out why is that you want more.
The second problem is having a passion but not a life. What that mean is that they are so focused in what they are doing in their life that do not have time of anything else.
What is important in your life?
You have to ask yourself this question on consistent basis what is important in your life what is it that you want your life to mean. It will take time and effort. It might be easy for some of you but the hardest thing for most.
Because when people are asked what is it they want specific ling in their life. Most will get stuck but then they will give more generic answers like more money, more time etc. But when you ask them to dig deep and find the real answers they will feel uncomfortable.
What is missing from your life?
Most of us have a feeling in back of our mind that something is missing from our life but we are not sure what it is. We know that there is some that we want from life but do not know what it is.
So now it is the time for you figure it out what is that you really want from life. Do not be influenced by other people’s expectations. What is it that you want in your life not some that advertisers have convinced you that you want in your life?
Do you know what you want to do with your life?
Believe it or not you have a long life. So pass that time that you have on this earth you want some that will keep you occupied till you die I know it is not the right way to say it. But it is the truth. We are just passing time till we are dead.
If it not that then why do people watch more than 4 hours of TV every day. If it is not the case then why people need more and more ways to pass time.
How are you going to do what you want to do?
If you have something that you want to do in this life do you have a plan for it or you just winging it? If you have a plan in place are you following your own plan or just leave it and try to pass the time.
Doing what you want to do and not letting it consume the life that you have is balancing act of its own. Yes it always easy for one to take another. If you focus on your life too much your passion gets sideways and if you focus on your passion then your life gets sideways.
So what to do we will discuss it next point how much is enough.
How much is enough
How much is enough for you? It is question that most of us do not want to ask ourselves because we are not going to like the answer that we get from within. For most of us we know that we will not need the amount that we think is a must for us. You know that there is a lot necessary for us to be happy. That bring us to the next point is happiness important for you.
Is happiness important for you?
Are you a kind of person that thinks that happiness is important for you? If is truly the case then what are you doing to make it happen. Are you exercising 5 days a week or eating healthy because health is an important part of happiness. If you are not giving it time then happiness is not that important to you.
What matter in end?
What I think a lot about is what matter in end? The answer is simple nothing. You can kid yourself with any other answer but the truth is nothing matters. No matter what you does it will not a make a shred of difference in the end?
Having a live and living your passion is about understanding both life and you. If you do not have clear idea about both then you will take wrong decision in your life. You have to know some of the basic facts of life like pain are inevitable, life is just a time pass and nothing matters at end.
Only when you are clear about that thing you can really make a life that will give you both happiness and fulfillment. Yes they are both different things happiness is enjoying what you have and fulfillment achieved by striving to do better than before.
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. – Confucius
So find the thing that is making your simple life complicated and if you have the option that you can remove it from your life the just do it. You will see that your life is more enjoyable after that.
Life is not lived in future it is now. So do not lose sight of your now to chase some magical rabbit in the future it will just complicate your life and suck out happiness and fulfillment out of it.
