How to Identify And Pursue Your Passions with Positive Thoughts
Discovering and claiming something you love to do has an amazing effect on your entire life. Many people will say they don't know what they want to do. If you give them suggestions they'll give you a long list of reasons why they can't do what they want to do - or what you suggest.
Their mind is filled with negative thoughts and they simply have a negative thought pattern that's become part of who they are.
Now if you want to discover your calling and enjoy life, then you have to believe that you can do what you want and to develop that kind of belief you need to have a positive thinking pattern in place. Your mind should be filled with positive thinking and positive thoughts.
Then when you start to think about your calling or doing what you enjoy - you're able to discover that calling more easily because you'll believe that you can. This is how positive thinking supports you and allows you to follow your calling or your passion.
1. Start With a Positive Perspective
If you’re convinced that finding your passion is hard, or that it’s not going to happen for you, you’ll remain closed to possibilities. You’ll block the little signals that guide us all. how can you expect to find fulfilling work if you don’t believe it exists?
Choose to adopt the perspective that you can do what you love with your life. One of the best ways to strengthen this point of view is to surround yourself with people who are living examples.
2. Find Your Talents
Have you ever thought What are you good at or have a natural aptitude for? Forget about what you’re good at but don’t really like doing much. the things you have a knack for that delight or happily occupy you. You don’t have to be good at something for it to qualify as a passion. You don't have to ever earn a penny of income from it either. Talent can simply be a clue. When it comes to your passions, the only thing that matters is that you enjoy them.
Well, but if you want to contribute your passion to society and make an income from it, you need to get realistic about whether this could actually turn into a career—and what you would need to do to make that happen. Moreover, think about if you would even enjoy doing those things; for some people, a passion is just fun, and turning it into work changes it from a “love to do” to a “have to do.”
Be alert to who might need your newly emerging passion, and aim to have conversations with them to get you clearer on how, where, and when you can serve them.
3. Pay Attention To People Who Make You Annoyed Or Jealous
Are there people doing things that are “carefree ” who annoy you? Take a closer look at that annoyance. Is the truth behind your annoyance that you really wish you could live so freely, that you didn’t have so many serious responsibilities and could be as “immature” as they are? Give yourself a break and find time to pursue your freshly discovered passion.
4.Think Of What You Loved To Do As A Child
This is probably the simplest way to find a way to light up your days. Before the grown-ups get to us with their ideas, most of us know exactly who we are and what would make us happiest.
Were you obsessed with horses? Maybe you should head to a dude ranch for your next vacation.
Loved finger painting or drawing? Sign up for an art class.
Love to dance like crazy. Join a dance class.
5. Notice When You Lose Track Of Time, Or What You Hate To Stop Doing.
What would you love to spend hours doing, that you never get enough time to do? That’s a passion, and you probably need to do it more than you are.
6. See Your Passion Hunt As A Fun, Joyful Adventure
There are people putting pressure on themselves to find their passion. it’s critically important to discover and engage in things that light you up, but it’s just as important to cultivate an un-serious child-like attitude of play, wonder, and adventure.
When you deliberately open yourself to noticing things you might enjoy doing, don’t be afraid of getting it wrong. It’s all an adventure, you’re learning and growing as you go. Happiness research shows that trying new things increases dopamine levels in the brain, contributing to sustained levels of contentment. So try away!
Any doubt or negative thoughts will impede your ability to discover your calling.
So think about the kind of life you want. Think about what you like doing. Then start doing it.
