A FitPerez reader is tired of a the daily grind and wants to start doing work they are actually passionate about! However, like many of us, this reader needs help figuring out what that actually is, so they wrote life coach Dr. J for advice, asking:
Everything I read lately says you should be passionate about your work. I'm definitely not passionate about my current job but I'm not sure what else I want to do. How do I figure out what I should be doing with my life?
According to Dr. J:
I believe that we are all designed to SHINE and each and every one of us has a unique talent. Start sincerely listening to that invisible voice within, because if you're asking me this question, that inner voice is already speaking to you.
It's time to figure out what it is you really want. What will be your Legacy? What are your Dreams? You can discern your direction once you amp up awareness in your life. I suggest you get Ready to Rewire and create a new Reality for yourself. It will take some Readjusting, Rebuilding, Reexamining, and Resolve, but if you start being forensic with your feelings, your passion will point YOU in the direction of your deepest desires.
Let's get back to basics to get you back on track. First, think about what is it that YOU truly LOVE? Still not sure? Then begin to build a better blueprint for your life by creating your own bucket list…or what I like to call your LIFE list. Only things that excite, fascinate, and exhilarate you belong on your list. Look for patterns in your list that will point you in the direction of your passion. Make sure you actually check off everything on your LIFE-list so that you can make sure reality and your dreams are a match. When you adopt activities that appeal to you, you are putting yourself in a position to prevail. And don't worry if you suddenly figure out that your current pursuits have put you on the wrong passion path.
There is nothing wrong with U-turns to get you to where you want to be. We all change lanes in life! But, going around in circles will get you nowhere. So, buckle up for the ride of your LIFE!
