You know this feeling when you’re bursting with energy? When there’s some power much greater than you seeking outlet? When you suddenly feel really big, really powerful and really capable, as if nothing can stand between you and success? It happens to me occasionally. Has it ever happened to you?
Well, let me ask you this: When you get this feeling, what is the next thing you do? Do you:
a. Turn on the telly for a marathon of Desperate Housewives
b. Check your email
c. Log into Facebook
d. Fill your mind with thoughts about going to work tomorrow (*sigh*)
e. Do nothing
Guess what? The right answer, I believe, should be “None of the above”. I’m going to be honest here. I used to go for e. I would ignore those rare moments thus rendering them powerless, and go on with my life.
But I was wrong. Boy, was I wrong…
Only a couple of years ago did I realize that these energized moments are when your intuition comes into play. This is when your true calling is asking your attention. In fact, it’s nothing else than your PASSION seeking realization.
I know what some of you may be thinking now.
How can I do this?
I don’t have enough money/knowledge/time/connections
What will my spouse/hubby/friends/kids say?
Do you know what these thoughts are?
It’s your ego speaking to you, telling you why you can’t do this and that or the other, why you should, in fact, be like everybody else and lead a mediocre, boring, uninspired life with no goals or destination. Without any achievement or self-fulfillment.
So what can you do against that ongoing, demotivating self-talk within you?
Reject it. Ignore it. Train yourself to listen to your heart, to tune into your higher mind, to follow only your goals, your passion, your dreams. But how do you get started? There are many ways to get started; there are many effective techniques to acquire the right mindset to success. I will go through some of them in future posts. However, here is a simple action plan for the next time you get this energy burst, so you’re not caught off guard:
- Write your thoughts down, so you can act on them later.
- Do a relevant online search and come up with 5 matching sites.
- Bookmark these sites or add them to your RSS reader and start reading.
- Start your own blog. Get a domain name and a hosting plan and you’re in the game.
- Get a good blogging course.
- Write 10 articles about your area of interest. If you’re passionate about it you can easily come up with even more articles.
- Schedule 7 articles for the next 2 weeks, in 3-4 days intervals. Offer the remaining 2 as guest posts for blogs you’ve visited.
I believe that you owe it to humanity, to the Universe, to follow your passion. But above all, you owe it to yourself…
Take the first step. The rest will follow.
What about you?
What are your passions?
