From the "Passion Unlocks Prosperity" series:
What is the meaning of life?
More specifically, what is the meaning of your life?
Ask this question to someone who lives life with passion and you will receive answers like:
"My life purpose is to immerse myself in journeys of self-discovery which result in personal growth, abundance and prosperity. "The meaning of life for me is to do what I love as much as possible" "To discover who I am and why I am here" "Feeling excited and inspired about what I am doing with my life" When you live with a passion for what you do, life is an adventure! You feel centered, confident and have an inner knowingness that you are "on track" with your life.
Ask the same question of someone who is empty of passion and you receive a very different view of life:
"My life purpose is to keep working on my job another 10 years until I retire" "Counting the days until I can take my 2 weeks vacation" "I'm not happy, I feel stuck, overwhelmed and depressed..."
When you live your life without passion, your time is spent counting the days as you endure the struggle. A life without passion and genuine interest for what you are doing means you are not fully engaged. You are not fully alive. All you are doing is putting in time.
You have lost control over the most precious thing you have: The quality of your life.
Living without passion is a life without dreams... An empty shell of hopelessness and ultimate depression. Your days become a never ending reaction to situations that always seem just beyond your ability to control. It is a life without meaning...An mere existence rather than an adventure. Happiness should not be some kind of memory you fondly remember. It needs to be an ongoing underlying principle of your life. You deserve it to be so.
Think of passion as the highway which will take you to your dreams.
Personal growth, abundance and prosperity will always be the byproduct of that journey.
You see, life is supposed to be lived with joy and fulfillment. You are supposed to be excited and involved with how you are living your life.
The meaning of life is yours to define with the dreams you dream the activities you engage in and the quality of the life you are living.
The day you run out of excuses
is the day your life changes...
