Passion >>> Complacency
!PSA! Take this 3-question quiz that will guarantee 1 of 4 possibilities: (1) you have an a-ha moment, (2) you give yourself a pat on the back (3) you have an oh-s***-what-am-I-doing moment, or (4) some combination of 1 & 3!
Question 1- How old are you?
Question 2a – What are you doing in this chapter of your life?
Question 2b – Is what you’re doing considered “normal” for your age?
……If yes, say “yes it is but who really cares if my life is normal” and move to question 3.
……If no, say “no it is not but who really cares if my life is normal” and move to question 3.
Question 3-Is what you’re doing making you truly happy?
…..If yes, then please accept this emoji high-five *insert emoji high-five*.
…..If no, why are you doing it? (And accept an emoji high-five anyways because you’re probably the bomb).
Two weeks ago I posted a blog about “investing in yourself” and in it I mentioned I wanted to draw out that belief. I wanted to hold on to that belief with both my hands!
Recently I decided to take that belief and crank it up a notch — I wanted to live and breathe that belief so I could hold onto it with my WHOLE HEART!
So how did I do this?…I stopped my normal life, decided to follow my passion, and started this blog. And now I am dedicating the rest of my life to helping others realize they should follow their passions too. Super exciting, right!?!?! …Wrong…(ish).
It’s actually a bit nerve-wracking. And sometimes I feel like the picture below:
It is definitely not easy to take a huge risk without being certain you’ll be re-paid. So why take such a risk???…PASSION! Seriously, that’s it. Sure I have the support of my immediate family and closest friends, but even if I didn’t, I swear passion alone would keep me going.
If you are complacent with your life and that is the way you want to keep it, that is totally fine – no hard feelings. But I am telling you with 100% certainty that pushing past complacency to complete fulfillment will bring you joy like nothing else will.
Whether it’s starting a blog, writing a book, or spending more time with family, follow your passion and you WILL find true happiness. Whether you’re 14, or 20, or 56 years old, do what brings you fulfillment and I promise you WILL find a passion for life itself 🙂
