Live Your Life with Passion

Do it with passion. Focus on your passionate interest.

I say this a lot, because I think it's terribly important.

But I know lots of people who can't follow their passion, because they don't have any idea what it is. As far as they're concerned, they don't have a passion.

So what are they supposed to do? How will they discover their passion?

I found some really good advice about this on a website called The Change Blog, written by a guy named Peter, who claims that fatherhood changed his life. The piece on passion was a part of an article called, "7 Habits that Will Make You Happier, Healthier & Way More Likeable." Here is Habit #6:

Let me be the first to say that I’m all about ‘finding your passion’. But the problem with most people is that they get so wrapped up in ‘finding themselves’ or ‘finding their passion’ that they forget how this discovery is actually made: By Living Passionately. In other words, if you want to find out where your true passions lie, stop looking and simply start living everything you do throughout the day with passion and zeal. By so doing, self-discovery will come naturally and easily.

Good stuff! Check out the rest of the article, and browse the blog!
