What gets you going and keeps your focus? What are you passionate about?
I read that about 75 percent of people can't answer this question: What is Your Passion?
My husband's passion (not including me!) is his farm. This plot of land that's been in his family since the 1800s. It's the reason he'd never move to any other location. He is all about this farm, everything to do with it. It's what he thinks about every day when he wakes up. It's his main focus in life. The farm is his biggest joy, his biggest reward. He works incredible hours on his farm and doesn't even realize it because he loves doing it. He is so pumped when he gets on his tractor and rambles around his fields, surveying everything. It feeds his soul.
For me, writing.
Note here we are not talking about family members, the people you take care of and love. In that case I'd have to say being a wife and mother, and my husband would say being a husband and father. Those go without saying.
Not your job...unless of course you're fortunate to be living your dream where you work and are paid. .
Something you DO for the sake of just doing it.
A hint would be that you probably thought about it when you were a child. Remember those fantasies?
What would you do even if you weren't paid for it?
If money weren't an object, what would you spend your life doing?
What would make you jump out of the bed in the morning anxious to start doing?
What is your dream, your passion?
