Passion makes us tick, our pulse quickens, our mind races, and we become alive inside when we are passionate about something.
Passion drives our lives in many different directions, ultimately shaping who we are and the experiences we have.
Today I’d like to discuss how to create passion in your life, your work, and hopefully, lead you to a better future.
One that you can look back at the end of your life and be proud of who you are and what you did.
Have You Lost Passion in Your Life?
Do you find yourself unmotivated to get out of bed in the morning?
Do you go to a job everyday that you don’t like (if you’re like 70% of today’s 9-5 er’s, I imagine you do), do you feel dull inside, stuck in a routine of tedious monotony?
Here’s a great question to ask yourself to see if you’ve lost passion in your life. Do you find yourself sighing a lot? Or maybe you look like this guy below.
If so, you’re not alone. We all go through feelings of disengagement from time to time. And we all loose passion for something that we once loved.
But we need to understand that passion is so critical to make happy and successful lives.
Passion is what dedicates us to our families, inspires us, makes us feel good inside, and strengthens us to go that extra mile for what we believe in.
Heck, passion can make us do some of the craziest things in the world. Walk across two skyscrapers (1,300 feet in the air), fly across the world to meet someone special, quite your job and pursue a new career.
These are acts of passion.
Passion changes and develops over time, so understanding this will better prepare you for when you find yourself passionless and in need of a new plan of attack in this little journey we call life.
How To Create Passion in Your Life Again
Think of things that you have been passionate about in the past.
Do your past and present passions share a similar theme?
In other worlds, maybe you like learning or mastering a new task. Maybe it’s helping other people. Or maybe you like building things.
But try to identify what you’ve been passionate about in the past to get a better understanding as to who you are.
Now take a moment and think of what brings a smile to your face these days.
Do you light up when you see new pictures, places, or activities when your surfing the web or watching TV?
Maybe your soul is shouting out for a change in your life. You could be bored with the same old daily tasks and need to shake things up.

Take a Risk to Find Your Passion
Many times we find that we’re comfortable in our daily routines, but we are not impassioned with our lives.
This is natural, but over time if you are NOT listening to your heart or allowing your passions to guide you, you can end up resenting the life you’ve built. And with time, that resentment can manifest itself into negative behaviors or actions.
That is what a wise man once said to me when I was confronted with a passionless life. I followed his advise and never looked back. And my life was forever changed in a profoundly positive way.
I traveled through 9 countries, learned to speak Spanish, and had 100’s of adventures that are forever embedded in my soul.
The point of my story is that we have to take a risk when we’re looking to discover our next passion.
I sold my home, quite my job, and moved away from what was familiar and comfortable to get to know myself, other cultures, and explore the world.
You don’t have to go to the extremes that I went through. But let me tell you that by taking a risk to follow your passion, you will be more satisfied and fulfilled with your life than ever before.
Remember, you can’t go wrong when you following your heart in life.
Bring Your Passion to Life!
Putting more passion in your life is a cumulative process. You need to start by identifying what you are passionate about and then see how you can incorporate this passion into your life on a daily basis.
Try to take an hour or two every day to investigate your passions and explore whatever it may be that is calling you.
Once you have identified your passion, go with it.
Here on this website, my goal is to help others bring their skills, gifts, passions, and experiences to create online businesses that will provide them with more freedom, happiness and a greater quality of life.
So whether you like sports, video games, outdoor recreation, music, you name it, you can take your passion and create a niche website that will allow you to accomplish your dreams and goals.
Taking one’s passions in life and creating an online business has never been easier in this day and age. You just need a computer, an internet connection, guidance and support.
And don’t forget, you need a little passion.
