Pursue Your Passion

 

PowerPoint Presentation

Passion: a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary

What do you have a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement about? Are you pursuing your passion? If not, why not?

In the busyness of life, it’s easy to operate on autopilot and not make time to pursue the things that we love, enjoy, and feel passionate about.

Passion comes from within. If you’re not sure what you are passionate about, create time to reflect on areas of interest or things that you enjoyed doing when you were younger. Start doing the things that you have identified to see if they still resonate with you. If you were interested in nature—start spending time in nature. If you were interested in certain causes—volunteer your time. If you enjoyed dancingstart dancing. If you enjoyed writingstart writing. If you enjoyed hiking—start hiking. You don’t have to wait for everything to be perfect to pursue what you love. Once you are clear on your passion, pursue it and see where it leads you.

If you say you are passionate about something that you are not pursuing, explore what is holding you back. Don’t let fear keep you from pursuing what you love. Commit to taking action even if it’s only small steps. Over time, small steps can have a big effect.

Give yourself time and permission to pursue your passion.

Create a Vision Board

A vision board is a visual representation of your desired outcomes. It is a powerful tool for staying focused and bringing your goals to life through the use of words, images, and symbols—the language of your soul.

Your vision board can represent what you desire for your life overall, be specific to a life area (e.g., health and fitness, career, relationships, etc.) or a quality that you would like to magnify in your life (e.g., peace, love, joy, etc.). The key is to include words, images, and symbols that are meaningful to you. Keep your board where you to see it on a daily basis. It will serve as a visual reminder of what you would like to manifest in your life.

In my post, Be Intentional, I encouraged you to spend some time thinking about and visualizing where you would like to be in the next three months. I invite you to create a vision board that represents what you visualized for your life three months from now or whatever time frame works best for you.

What you will need:

  • Your goals/desired outcomes (click here to read about SMART goals)
  • Poster board, cork board, or large piece of paper
  • Glue, tape, push pins (depending on the type of board you are using)
  • Words, images, and symbols that you cut out of magazines and/or download from the internet
  • Colored pens and/or markers for handwritten words and/or images
  • Scissors

There is no right or wrong way to create your board. It is a creative process that produces a visual representation of what you would like to manifest in your life. Have fun and enjoy the process! Search the internet to see examples of vision boards (also known as treasure maps). The link below will take you to Google images for vision boards.
