Have you ever felt like the guy in the above photo? You have dreams and aspirations and work constantly to achieve those dreams. So much so that you find yourself exhausted most days and can’t remember why you started in the first place. Life just seems to happen and you just can’t find peace or contentment in your life. It affects everyone around you and bitterness starts to set in.
This may describe more than you have experienced yourself, but it happens to most people who want a change in life. Contentment with the present is taken over by hopes of the future. Happiness needs to be found in the present, so you can find your passion again.
So, here are three steps that I can recommend to you in getting back to being as passionate as when you started:
1. Really Remember Your Dream.
Sit down, shut off distractions and go back to the beginning. What was your original dream? I’m betting that it wasn’t to do “normal”.
If your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough.
2. Do What Matters Most.
This deals with your daily priorities. Want to get more done in your day? Do the most important things first. When your energy is at it’s highest and at the time of the day when your focus is at it’s greatest. You will put more into your work, greatness will be achieved at a faster pace and you will be able to move on to the next task with more satisfaction. More satisfaction equals less mental clutter. You will be able to move on to the next big thing and feel completely finished with the previous completed project. This is one of the most important things you will find as you create more.
Creation needs more singular focus put into it. When you can’t put everything in, you will end up with a half-completed, mediocre project that you will have to fix later. Do it right the first time and increase productivity.
3. Think About Outsourcing The Things That Don’t Matter to You.
What are the things that matter most to you? That is a great first question to ask yourself while you are pursuing your dreams. You can even make a list of these things. Then you can outsource these projects to others when possible. After all, it is a huge blessing when you are able to give others projects that they are passionate about, too. The key to this step is to not only know your own dreams, but get to know the dreams of those around you.
Remember your dream, do what matters most and know your passions and the passions of those around you.
