5 Steps to finding your passion

If you want to truly live your Genius, then you need to find your passion and follow it. It’s actually not that hard to do, so it’s surprising that few people go ahead and do it.  Most people seem happy to exist rather than living their dream life of happiness and success.

To change your life and living for the better and create a future you can really look forward to and enjoy, here are the five basic steps to living from passion and Genius.

Step 1: Dream Big

Everyone has big dreams. But not everyone will own up to them.  What have you done with yours? Do you think about them, act on them or hide them away?

If you want to find your passion and purpose, then it’s time to allow yourself to dream fully again. List all of those big dreams you’ve had from childhood to today. No matter how wild or funny, or how that little voice on your shoulder tells you they are ‘unrealistic’, write them all down.

Which of those dreams resonates most with you? Which makes your heart sing and inspires you the most? How could it become realistic and achievable?

If you’ve set your sights on being the first full-time resident of Mars, then you’ll probably need to take another look at your list and find something that is a bit more plausible but almost as exciting to you.  That or become very good friends with Elon Musk and his team at SpaceX!

And your big dream doesn’t have to be as outrageous or huge as that. It does need to be big enough to push you out of your comfort zone.  And exciting enough to have you willing to commit to making changes in your life so that you can achieve it. It needs to spark a fire of desire and passion in you.

Step 2: Set Goals

Once you’ve decided on your dream, then you need to set goals. Your end goal is what you want to achieve; your dream. There will be other, smaller goals, that you will need to achieve along the way.

Breaking down a massive objective into smaller steps that you can start on right away is a great way to follow your passion.  As the saying goes, the only way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time (not that I’m suggesting eating wildlife, I don’t want to offend vegetarians and conservationists, but you know what I mean!)

Step 3: Plan Your Way

Now that you know what you want and need to achieve, it’s time to plan what you need to do to get there. Think about what action you need to take, resources you will need and anything or anyone that can provide help and support.

That last bit is important.  By far the best way to follow your passion is to team up with other people who are passionate about the same things as you.  You don’t have to create a formal team, but having like-minded people about who can offer advice, assistance and encouragement will help a lot.

Step 4: Take Action

So now you have made a choice about what you want, you’ve worked out the milestones to achieving it and figured out the steps to take. Now it’s time to take action.

Choice that doesn’t involve action is not really a choice.  Just a fantasy. Remember you are looking for a passionate life. One that fills you with excitement, ACTION, joy and success.

Step 5: Live Your Best Life

Once you’ve started taking action on your goals and plans you will find that your life starts to improve. Instead of dreading each new day you’ll look forward to it with excitement and anticipation. The thing to do now is to commit to your own future and stick with it.

Your best life is the one that gives you happiness, success and achievement through living your passion and purpose.  You will need to be held to the high standards to which you deserve to be held, and you can give it a go on your own or get a helpful boost by finding yourself a coach or mentor.

Whatever you do to make it happen, remember it’s your life, and it’s up to you to live it to the full.
