Feeling a little stuck? Not sure what's exciting in life? Just letting the days pass you by? Time to flip the coin.

Maybe you need some help to tap into your intuition and free your creative spirit within. It's never too late to realize your hidden abilities. Age is not a restriction.

“When you fight yourself to discover the real you, there is only one winner.” (Stephen Richards)

1). What is Passion:

“A sense of belonging that makes you feel alive”. Passion is a spark, energy that comes from focusing on what excites you.

You don’t need any reminder or any alarm clock.

Benefits in this new Journey?

This is a chance to reconnect with your creativity and passion. It will be a transformation journey.

You will discover new possibilities, self-knowledge, and optimistic ways to look at things and people.

Your passion enlightens a spark in your personality. What matters is to use that energy in the right direction.

This article is all about self-realization, drafting your life, and make it happen.

Points to Remember:

  • Be very specific and clear.
  • Don’t get confused with the questions related to your life. Who you are? and What you want from life not what life wants from you?
  • Don’t compare yourself with others. Do you feel alive, energetic enthusiastic, while doing something which you love doing?

We can take back our power to create abundance in our lives. So, what you are waiting for?

Exercise:

Q: YOU KNOW YOUR BOUNDARIES, Know what you like/don’t like, what you want/don’t want to do, and what lines you don’t want to cross.

Q: Write the name of the activities you enjoy doing every day.
