Your Passion Is Your Purpose
How many of you feel as though you are on autopilot? Navigating the sea’s of life with your eyes half open. Sure, you are still living life, but you are living it mindlessly. You are not alone. A great majority of people are living this way.
We often go through life choosing the path of least resistance. Life is hard, and having the proper tools are essential to living out your purpose, but you have to determine what your purpose is before anything else.
How To Define Your Purpose?
Wooah. The question alone is daunting, isn’t it? It doesn’t have to be. Let’s change the way you think about it.
I am going to tell you something that is going to make finding your purpose much easier. Are you ready for it??
— YOUR PASSION IS YOUR PURPOSE —
Mind-blowing, right? You may already be aware of this but have never given it much thought. Take a few minutes to really think about this and allow it to soak in.
Your “purpose” is whatever you are passionate about.
What Are Your Passions
Find a nice spot where you can really sit and brainstorm. Ask yourself questions such as “What am I good at? – What do I enjoy doing? – What can’t I get enough of? It should be fairly easy to determine what you are passionate about. Don’t leave out the things you love to do while recreating. Literally, leave nothing out!
As an example, I will list the things I am passionate about. Hopefully, my list will help you to understand exactly what I mean, and help you go wild with your own list. Let’s begin and keep it very basic, my passions are helping others, exercise, and learning. To break that down further:
My passions include writing (that one is obvious), blogging (another given), hiking either outside or on my treadmill with a steep incline (MY FAV), cycling (so fun), running & walking (love it), organization and cleaning, helping others by inspiring them to live their best life, and helping others to reach their goals. Oh yea, and Space. Space? Yep, like Einstein, physics, and Astronomy.

As you can see, your passions can come from anywhere. Discover them. Your passions will guide you to the life you should be living.
Don’t Over-Think It
Don’t spend a huge amount of time trying to determine what your passions are. Go with how the activity makes you feel, and your initial gut reaction. Does it excite you? Does it give you butterflies, and make you giddy. Perhaps it gives you a feeling of immense satisfaction. You don’t want to get hung up on this step in the process but rather go with the flow and the direction it takes you.
I Know My Purpose & Passion, Now What?
What do you do now that you know what you are passionate about? Welcome to this amazing stage. I found it enlightening, and the possibilities limitless! If you are anything like me, perhaps you are a bit nervous. Or maybe you feel overwhelmed. Take a deep breath in and then out while you count to 8. As you exhale, imagine all the negative self-limiting energy leaving you.
Determine where you are in your life. If you are like me, I am a Gerneration X’er. I have grown children in their early 20’s, and children in junior high. You may be a millennial. What we have in common is living simply, putting our passions to work, and work from anywhere.
