Did you wake up today loving your life?
Are you doing things because you love to do them or because you feel like you have to do them? What percentage of the time would you say you live like that? Well, if you are spending more of your time doing stuff because you feel like you have to instead of wanting to,then you’ve discovered a simple formula for misery.
“The purpose of life is a life with purpose.” -The Monk Who Sold his Ferrari.
Then the first step is to ask yourself and write out the answer to “what are you passionate about?” What sparks enthusiasm so much so that you can feel it in your body, whether it’s a smile on your face or sitting up a little taller in your seat. This helps you define the purpose of your passion. Now you may ask, why write it if we can just think about it? Because science tells us that by writing out your goals on a piece of paper you send a red flag to your subconscious mind that these thoughts are more important than the other 59,999 ones you’ll have today! It gives the other thoughts directions and where your energy goes it grows.
This also helps you to filter out what is unimportant so you can focus first on what’s most important. You will enjoy life more fully if you stop focusing on the minor stuff and figure out what you want to major in life. The key thing to keep in mind is that you can have fun while you’re progressing along your path. You can reclaim the joy of waking up each day excited about your life!
Don’t you want to wake-up filled with energy and enthusiasm?
So ask yourself right now: “Where are you going, what path are you on; Are you excited about the direction? If I could choose to make any adventure which one would you do next?”
Have you always dreamed of doing yoga on the beach in Bali? Or maybe you’ve dreamed of living under the Tuscan sun in Italy or to challenge yourself climbing the beautiful red rocks of Moab? Then today journal about what lights up your life with passion. Plan your life’s next big adventure and make it happen. Stop holding back from what you really want to do or try or experience!
And from this passion for life you will be transformed or as Pantanjali says in the Yoga Sutras, “When you are inspired by some great purpose all of your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world!” Be the cause of your own future happiness! Start planning the next wonderful adventure doing what you love!
Love yourself, love your day, love your life!
