Let me start by saying that this is not another “discover your passion” cliché post telling you to quit your work and pursue something different. This is a gentle breeze of thoughts on you and me to find time to facilitate and develop a personal vision. This piece of writing will not criticize you for your decisions or blame you for your current predicament. There are many aspects of our fleeting existence over which we have no control. In reality, we are helpless actors in a pre-written screenplay. Aren’t we ? Let’s delve into a much more deeper contemplation.
What would you do if you could do anything regardless of money?
What is it about which you are genuinely passionate about?
Think about it for a minute, I’ll wait : )
Don’t go to the next tab or keep scrolling. Before we go any farther, let’s think about it and come up with some quick answers because you most probably won’t spend any other time than instances like this to do it.
Not everyone is fortunate to do what they love for work, but let’s just think about it for a while. You could be working a bustling job right now, and you’re presumably in a haste to get everything accomplished for today. But, as not many people may ask you this now, what was your childhood dream job? While it may seem weird to return to your childhood aspirations, they may not be far from what you would be delighted doing. Sure, not everyone can become an astronaut, but the desire to pursue that vocation comes from somewhere. Consider your ideal work. Even if you no longer want it, the former ambition may assist you discover out what inspires you.
We need to find time to have a personal vision about our life. In many aspects, it is similar to a compass that shows direction. It helps you make vital judgments. Once developed, our outlined personal vision might help us discover our genuine interests. Most of the time, we are rushed and do not take the time to describe our personal vision. Our personal values are what we hold close for steering how we work and live. Our values shape our own priorities and goals. And they often serve as a barometer of whether or not our lives and careers are unfolding as we would want. Curating this particular vision is akin to finding who we really are – our genuine or full selves. Personal vision is the intersection of our values, beliefs, and feeling of purpose. We’ll be that much closer to living a fulfilling life driven by our interests once we become conscious of this vision, which will of course be different for you and me. Occasionally, mindfulness and goal writing assist me in refining and curating the vision. The bottom line is that understanding how to identify your passion and living a fulfilled life all boil down to knowing and doing what you really like. There’s a lot to be said about putting in the time and effort to figure out what your strengths are — and then venturing outside of your comfort zone to put your newfound knowledge to use.
Our lives are limited, and having a personal vision may help us find fulfillment and contentment in many aspects of our lives. God bless your pals.
