Blake Mycoskie, an American entrepreneur, author, and philanthropist, once said that if you organize your life around your passion, you can turn your passion into your story and then turn your story into something bigger – something that matters.
In the previous articles, we’ve seen how we all have a set of talents and passions that give us a hint as to what we’re supposed to do in life.
Once you’ve identified your passion and purpose, the next smartest step is to organize all your life around it. Everything you do should be aligned with your purpose. Every time an opportunity arises, you should compare it to your “Purpose Map”, and if it doesn’t match it, well you shouldn’t take it.
When you are “on purpose” and following your passion in everything you do –especially in a professional environment, everything you do feel like you’re on vacation, except you’re being paid for it!
Don’t get me wrong, you still have to do some work, sometimes it would be easy, and sometimes it will be hard, but it won’t feel like an effort to you, it would be like when you were a child and you were playing the afternoons away. Time will stop, and you’ll be enjoying every moment.
One more thing to add here; while going after your dreams, don’t aim for success, just do what you love, believe in it, and success will come to you naturally.
Talk again next week.
