Do you love your job? I know that’s a bit of a personal question. Be honest with yourself though – are you passionate about what you do?
If you said ‘no’, then read on. And if you said ‘yes’, then congratulations, and still read on, as I have a big announcement for you at the end!
What Are Your Passions?
I believe you have two choices – you can either drift through life, or you can really LIVE. By this, I mean living life your way, doing new things, and doing things that you love. And the key to all this is knowing your WHY. What your purpose is, why you’re here, and what you’re passionate about.
Of course, sometimes it can be hard to identify the things that truly make us happy and fulfilled. But, don’t give up hope! With a bit of self-reflection and exploration, you can find your passion and make meaningful progress towards knowing what you want.
There are a couple ways to do this – one way is to try new things. Step out of your comfort zone, follow where your curiosity takes you.
Another path is to consider is what sort things you already like. Even if small, they may have a trend or pattern that you might not have noticed.
Or perhaps there may be things you used to like, that you may have forgotten about, or neglected. Maybe because your time schedule is too busy, or you feel silly doing these things. But if they used to bring you joy, why rule them out?
Finding your passions can be a journey, but it’s a worthwhile one.
Love What You Do
Your passions are powerful. Imagine if you won the lottery. Would you still do what you do? Even with millions of pounds, you would continue to do the same activity if it’s something you’re passionate about, because it’s what gives you drive and inspiration. It’s what you look forward to, what makes you thrive.
If you can incorporate your passions into your work life, work will no longer feel like work. Your job will feel rewarding, you’ll be inspiring others, you’ll feel like you’re making a difference to the world (and you will be!!).
So how can you do what you love?
Perhaps you don’t want to leave the comfort of your current job. You don’t enjoy it, but it means you get to stay where you are without taking any risks.
Or maybe you don’t feel confident enough – you’ve said to yourself, ‘Who am I to think that I can’ or ‘What if I fail?’.
But it all goes back to what I said before – about drifting through life. You can continue staying stuck in the same job with your usual routine, or you can take that terrifying, yet rewarding first step, and choose to do what YOU want.
Share What You Love
When you find your true passion, there is one more step – and that is to share it. What do I mean by this?
You see, your passion isn’t just an activity you enjoy, it’s also what motivates you. If you can share it and tell others about the journey you’ve been on to discover it, you will inspire and help others.
But speaking is hard, right? And if you want to help others, you want to do it properly.
That is why we’ve created Strictly Come Speaking, where we help women who want to share their stories gain the confidence and support necessary for them to go up on stage and discuss their own journeys.
If this sounds like something you’d like to be part of – then we have just the event for you, but this is no ordinary event! On March 11th, we will be hosting a joint celebration for the Find Your WHY Anniversary, and International Women’s Day, where WHYs women will be gathering to share stories, as well as being able to live, love and laugh together!
