BECAUSE, WHEN YOU DO CREATIVE THINGS THAT YOU LOVE...
You mange to create something with your two hands using your own ideas. You bring to life something that did not exist before.
You might feel exhausted from your creative work, but on the other hand, this work will fill you with new life energy that you will be able to use to do other nice things in your everyday life.
This new creative energy will soon start to affect your whole body – frustration, tension from everyday life, depression... all that will go away and you will become a positive and relaxed person that spreads good vibes. Many of your health problems will diminish or even totally disappear and you will become more beautiful, both inside and outside.
If you are engaged in something that you really love and enjoy you are likely to be successful. Sooner or later people will start to notice what you do and begin to appreciate that. In time, they will consider you an expert on the subject and turn to you for help and advice. Maybe you will even be able to earn money doing what you like most. Isn’t that awesome!
Your friends may decide to follow your example and start pursuing their own passions. While being engaged in your creative work you will get in touch with other likeminded people. You will make new friendships, maybe go to new places, you will be inspired and in return, you will inspire.
You will wake up excited about new ideas that you are going to create, and go to bed satisfied with what you have accomplished that day. You will find pleasure in work and realize that you can achieve anything you set your mind onto.
Think of some passion that you have always had and write down the pledge that you are going to pursue it no matter what. Start today and dedicate at least 15 minutes a day thinking, reading, informing yourself about it... and take action. Now is the time as good as any. There is no point in postponing it!
If you do not know how to start, here is a little exercise that may show you the way towards your new passion.
Take a pen and a piece of paper. Give yourself exactly 60 seconds (do not cheat!!!) to write down as many things and activities you can think of that you like and enjoy doing.
Now, study the list. Somewhere, on this piece of paper is written your future passion. It may be a single item on the list or a combination of several items that can be transformed into a new activity that you will enjoy.
By taking this test you have already started your journey towards discovering your passions. Do not stop now!
