Today I wish to remind of chasing your passion. I think this is one of the most important elements of your life and the sooner you realize it the sooner you will be happier than ever before.
Have you ever said something like this?
“I love doing _________, but that doesn’t make a lot of money, so I am going to do _______ instead”
Guilty as charged! How many of us growing up have made decisions like this? Never mind growing up — how many of us have made decisions like this as adults going through working life? Sacrificing our creative passions on the altar of making a buck!
Now that is a question! What would I want to do every day if money was no problem, or if you didn’t need it… It’s worthwhile spending the time to not only daydream and really imagine our ideal day but to actually write those dreams down on paper. What would my ideal day look like if time was no object? Try this, and you’ll be surprised by the passion it unleashes.
Be thankful for what you are now, and keep fighting for what you want to be tomorrow. – Robert Tew
Is it possible to follow our passion and make a living? Ask writers from J.K. Rowling to Zadie Smith, filmmakers from Steven Spielberg to James Cameron, artists from Jeff Wall to Tracy Emin, musicians from Adele to Will.i.am, sportspeople from David Beckham to Usain Bolt.
No matter what the industry is there will always be someone out there living their passion. The funny thing is, following your passion can even potentially pay much more than the traditionally esteemed jobs.
A veteran care nurse recently revealed the top regrets of those on their death-bed:
“I wish I had lived my own life rather than how society taught me to live.”
“I wish I discovered my purpose earlier.”
“I wish I had taken more risks.”
“I wish I had taken better care of myself.”
“I wish I’d allowed myself to love.”
“I wish I had touched more lives and inspired more people.”
“I wish I had been a better partner or parent.”
Now if that list doesn’t prove why following your passion is a need, not a desire, then nothing will!
So today’s challenge is to ask yourself…
What do you want to be saying at the end?
