6 Simple Ways to Discover More Passion and Uncover Your Purpose

There are a lot of wonderful, curious and unique places to travel on the Earth. Think about all the usual and unusual destinations you know about and recall if you know anyone who ever went away to do some “soul searching”? How about hearing about someone going on a journey to “find their self” “or “discover their passion”? Did you ever stop to wonder to yourself “exactly where did they go”? Is your passion and purpose a destination.

You might be confused about what you want to do in life and that is perfectly fine. What is more important is the fact that you are looking for answers, such as reading articles on discovering your passion. Is it important to find your passion? Is there any negative consequence to avoiding your true calling? The answer to both questions is absolutely! So why is finding your passion and calling so important?

Here’s a quote from James Allen’s classic book ‘As A Man Thinketh’.

“Until thought is linked with purpose there is no intelligent accomplishment. They who have no central purpose in their life fall easy prey to worries, fears, troubles, and self pityings, all of which are indications of weakness, which lead, just as surely as deliberately planned sins, to failure, unhappiness, and loss, for weakness cannot persist in a power evolving universe.”

Having passion towards the things that you do in life will feed your soul and provide valuable insights into what you truly love. We hear the encouraging calls of those courageous adventures who travelled before us, those brave enough to battle ridicule from peers and handle personal frustrations. From the mountain tops of achievement they call out to us like Arthur Buddhold:

“Follow your passion, and success will follow you.” ~Arthur Buddhold

So if the formula for success in life is really that simple, why does discovering passion seem like searching for a mythical land? Because before we can apply the power of passion in our lives, we must first understand what passion is. For example how do you find an animal that you’ve never seen before and don’t know of any description whatsoever? The answer is you can’t. It could be right in front of your very eyes and you wouldn’t even know it!

Let’s look at a definition of passion on the web.

Passion: pas·sion (pshn)
1. a powerful feeling or emotion, such as love, joy, hatred, or anger.
2. the trait of being intensely emotional.
3. something that is desired intensely.

People often mistake their visions and goals with their passion. In fact your passion, vision and goals are separate but still inter-related. A passion is a way of being, a vibration, a vision explains how you express your passion, and a goal is any outcome that brings you closer to realizing your vision.

Here are a few examples of how they all relate:

Passion: Create a happy family.
Vision: To be the best parent I can.
Goal: Take parenting courses.

Passion: Communication.
Vision: Becoming a great speaker.
Goal: Join Toastmasters.

Passion: Freedom.
Vision: Become financially-free.
Goal: Learn how to leverage money.
