I read this quote fruom C.S. Lewis a few weeks back, ”You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” It struck a cord in my heart and made me reflect on my life. I believe that God has a purpose for our life and a mission that he has set for each of us to accomplish.
In the midst of all the busyness we find ourselves in, it is important to find what that purpose in life is and to fulfill that mission with our wholehearted passion. It is only through doing this that we get to live a full life.
Knowing that purpose will help us form goals and lead us to using our time more intentionally.Whether you want to be a successful career woman, entrepreneur, artist, writer, homemaker or something else, you just need to start setting goals and take little steps into fulfilling your dreams.
Here are some steps to find out your passion in life:
1. Take some time to reflect on your life and what you really enjoy doing. What are the things you would like to do even if you don’t get paid to do it?
2. Research about your interests. What specific area would you like to pursue? Are there other people who are already doing what you’d like to do? Talk to them and inquire. Get information on how you can pursue your dream. Attend workshops, conduct interviews or read about your passion.
3. Find a support group. Your support can come from your family members, friends or online support groups. Finding support can make or break your decision to pursue your goals. They can serve as your inspiration when tough days come.
4. Create specific steps that you would like to make into turning your dream into a reality. Include details to help you accomplish these goals.
Life is short. Pursue your passion and make life more meaningful.
