Passion is about emotions, the motivation and what makes us feel good, i.e. “do what you love”. Purpose is the reason, or the why behind what we do, primarily for others, i.e, “do what contributes.” Where passion can be all over the place, wild and exciting, purpose is much more focused.
MORE IDEAS FROM FOLLOW YOUR HEART
So if you have been seeking to find your purpose or your passion, the good news is that you can stop looking. They are part of you and in your life already. You just need to step back, reflect, align your life as needed, and keep building.
Passions seem relatively easy to identify, but how does one find their purpose? Similar to Dweck’s research on passion, John Coleman, author of Passion & Purpose, says that you don’t find purpose, you build it. It is an evolutionary process of reflecting on your gifts, your values and what you want to contribute. The four reflecting questions I’ve found the most helpful are:
How will the world be better off, thanks to you having been on this earth?
What are your unique gifts and superpowers?
Who have you been when you’ve been at your best?
Who must you fearlessly become?
Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
Try asking yourself:
Most of us have a certain distance that we like others to keep from others, depending on who the other person is. This is probably skewed now in 2020 when we are told to keep a safe distance from everyone.
Nevertheless, personal space, the distance between two people in any social, family or work environment, is like a bubble that you must be in, always.
