8 Things Suссеѕѕful People Dоn’t Waste Tіmе Dоіng

 

When your eyes sparkle when you think of something, or your mind gets excited when you discuss a particular topic, and your heart skips a beat, you know that is your passion. It can often be the smallest of things that can give us our aim in life; they direct us towards a path that we are destined to walk in the pursuit of our purpose and of our passion. Look for the clues, they are there, they can be sometimes hidden in small gestures of optimism, positivity and life all around us.

Never judge someone for the passion and lifestyle that they have chosen for themselves, because that may be the reason of their existence and living. Acquiring success is never sufficient, but  by searching for inspiration and motivation for our constant improvement will give us far more meaning and purpose to our lives. Even in our darkest hours; strength, passion, inspiration and happiness can always be found inside of us; all you need is the eye of an artist, and the heart of a lion to conquer what you are meant to do. Find your purpose and follow your passion!

We all serve a purpose in life, our purpose of earning a living for our family can be one aspect of our lives, but it could never be the sole passion which we should strive and live for. Most of our lives, our passion goes unheard and untapped because of what society might say, or how the people around us may react. You must take certain steps on a personal journey that will lead you to finding the passion that you have been waiting for all of your life.

The following are five important steps that you should take on your exciting journey to find your purpose and true passion in life.

Go Back To Your Childhood.

Exploring your true self by navigating through the corridors of the past will reveal to you the things you did for happiness and pleasure as a child. Sometimes concealed in those childish acts you will find clues to finding your true passion. Everyone needs to get in touch with their inner child to discover their likes, their choices, their purpose and their passion. Connecting with your past can reveal what you will really love to do the most.

Ask Yourself.

After a complete analysis of your inner child, ask yourself what makes you really happy? What gives your life it’s meaning? Interview yourself; what do you enjoy doing? What are your interests, what are your skills and talents? What makes you really feel alive? Write your thoughts and feelings down on paper and you will find more clues to finding your passion.

Own Yourself

You are unique! Yes you! You have a wonderful blend of talents, strengths, skills and interests. You have something unique and amazing to offer the world. Take ownership and pride in being who you are, and the awesome talents that you possess. Don’t leave them hidden and untapped, believe in yourself and share them with the world.

Believe in Yourself

Start focusing more on what you can do, what you can achieve and what kind of person you have become. Think of all the things that you have accomplished in your life until now. Make a list of twenty things that you have achieved up until now. Got a high grade in your favorite subject in school, helped in the local community, painted a picture, won a medal in athletics in high school, raised money for charity, trained a new starter in work, decorated your house, traveled to another country. Wrote a short story. Don’t stop until you have a list of twenty accomplishments. Then read over them and see some of the amazing things that you are capable of.

Trust Yourself And Your Journey

Stop hiding behind the curtains of life, and accept yourself as the awesome person that you are, and the passionate person that you want to become. By respecting yourself and trusting your journey only then will you be able to identify your purpose and realize your true passion in life.

6 Reasons Why You Should Create A Bucket List

Reasons Why You Should Create A Bucket List

The term ‘bucket list’ has become quite popular in recent years. It has been used in pop culture references and as a casual topic of conversation when someone wants to do something. Chances are, you have heard someone say, “Oh, that’s on my bucket list!” But, a bucket list is more than just a fantasy, an out of reach dream or an excuse to say that you want to do many things, only to never follow through on them.

There are actually many benefits to creating a bucket list, if you just put in the time, the thought and the dedication into it. Making a bucket list is a perfect way to set your life goals and to stay focused on making them a reality. Still not 100% convinced? Let’s take a look at six reasons why you really should create a bucket list. Maybe, by the end of this article, you will be ready to put together one of your very own.

1. It Gives You a Purpose

While putting together a bucket list won’t tell you what the meaning of your life is, it can help to give you a purpose to your life. A bucket list should be more about the major goals that you have for yourself, rather than a bunch of fun little things that you might want to do. A bucket list gives you something to get out of life and allows you to stay focused while you are doing it.

Have you ever been bored, wondering what you’re going to do this weekend to fill up your free time? A bucket list can give you that answer, encouraging you to always work towards the things that you truly want to do and experience in life.

2. It Brings Your Goals to Life

As stated above, a bucket list should be about exciting goals that you have for yourself. But, it is also an opportunity to hone in on those goals. Many people have ambitions and even make goals or resolutions for themselves each year only to be forgotten a few days later. But, when you have a specific list of goals written down, it can help to make you more motivated and focused to achieve them.

Goals are incredibly important to have, and the fact that your bucket list can make those goals clearer and more tangible is really important.

3. You Will Create Lasting Memories

Memories are one of life’s greatest treasures. As you start to accomplish the things on your bucket list, you will also be making wonderful memories each time. Since you are doing the things you really want to do, those memories will bring you comfort, a sense of achievement and give you something positive to look back on and share with others.

4. It Will Pull You Forward

Have you ever been in a “funk” in life, or maybe you have had bouts of feeling down or depressed that have kept you from doing the things you typically enjoy? No one wants to stay in that kind of mindset for long. Because a bucket list can help to give you a sense of purpose, it can also give you the motivation to pull yourself out of a funk. It can call you to do something new, something different, or something that even challenges you. Sometimes, that’s all a person needs to be pulled out of a tired or depressed state.

Additionally, doing something on your bucket list will help to distract you for a while. That can be a great solution for someone who has anxiety or tends to focus too much on the negative things in life. Sometimes, a distraction can be a welcomed reprieve.

5. You Will Experience Life-Long Learning

When you commit yourself to having new experiences, you are also committing yourself to learning something new. So many people think that learning stops when you finish school, but you can learn so much more simply by living and trying more new things throughout your life. People who embrace this type of lifestyle are called “lifelong learners”. The reality is this; you will never be able to learn everything there is to know. But, because all of us have such a short time on this planet to figure things out, the more experiences we participate in, the more that we will learn and grow. Not only can a bucket list help you to learn things about different cultures, skills, situations, people and personalities.

It can also help you to learn more about yourself. Closing your mind off to the idea of lifelong learning will cause you to become stagnant with your thoughts and your growth. As a human being, you should have a desire to continue to grow and achieve as much as you possibly can throughout your life. Working through your bucket list can help you to achieve that.

6. You Will Never Run Out of Things to Do

If you sit down to make a bucket list, you might write down anywhere from 10-100 things that you really want to do. But, it doesn’t have to stop there. Chances are, as you start to work through some of the things on your list, you will come up with more ideas.

Experiencing new things, and even challenging things, is a great way to get inspired and motivated to continue on that trend. A bucket list can truly be never-ending as you come up with more exciting new ideas and goals for yourself.

Building Your Bucket List and Bettering Your Life

There are so many additional reasons why you should create a bucket list for yourself. Remember, a bucket list is a very personal thing, and the experiences you put on the list should be things that you truly want to do or accomplish. Don’t make them  so unrealistic that you will never plan on committing to. Instead, promise yourself that you will immerse yourself in those experiences.

A bucket list might be something you create to accomplish things before you pass on, but in creating one and diving into new experiences, there is a good chance you will feel more alive than ever!
