I asked my good friend and fellow author of Ready Aim Captivate to you talk to you today about finding your passion. I often ask clients, “What are you passionate about?”. 9 out of 10 times they’ll say, “I don’t know.” So Nat has this really cool way of uncovering your passion and life path. I’ll let her take it from here.

Today, I wanted to share a short lesson about discovering what truly drives you, because this will guide you as you create the life ahead of you.
Have you ever felt like there was an invisible wall in your brain preventing you from being able to understand what you REALLY want?
If the answer is yes, I believe I may know the answer.
You see, whether you realise it or not, there are thousands of beliefs that you harbour in your mind about the world that you’ve never really examined. They’ve probably made their way into your head as a result of past experiences, especially emotional ones.
Some of these beliefs are really helpful (like the importance of looking both ways before crossing the street or cooking chicken before you eat it). Other beliefs may actually be sabotaging your efforts in the world (it will be next to impossible for you to ever become rich if you think that money is the root of all evil, and you’ll be unhappy in relationships if you think everyone is out to get you).
Now, the first step to happiness in any endeavor is figuring out what’s going to make you happy. Sometimes our passions just fall into our laps, but why leave things to chance? You already have the power living inside you to start a process that magnetically attracts your passions to you.
It all starts with your current state of mind. And today, I would like to share a short but powerful exercise that will illuminate some of the most important aspects of your life.
There really is something magical that happens when you write down your goals and dreams, instead of keeping them just in your head. After being written down on a page, your thoughts suddenly become more real… tangible… Even if you’ve done an exercise like this before, you may be surprised at how much has changed since then, or how different your insights are in your current frame of mind.
1.) List 5 activities you wish you could do each week.
2.) List 5 features about the person you want to become.
3.) List 3 emotions you wish you could feel on a regular basis.
You may want to consider…. material items, desired emotions, pursuits that give you satisfaction, as well as your spiritual connection with the universe.
When you write your answers down, you’re making the decision to start thinking about your life in a purposeful way.
That means you’ve taken the first step to creating your life the way you want it, instead of simply being an observer, always on the lookout, just waiting for things to happen.
Gain a Deeper Understanding Of What Motivates Your Passion
Now that you’ve gotten a bit clearer on what you really want, how do you achieve it?
I want you to take one step, even a tiny baby step, right now, toward making one of the things you’ve listed become closer to reality. Not sure what action to take?
Well, if you have about 10 minutes, watch [this quick video] where I talk about how I used to do everything the hard way before I learned how to speed up my efforts dramatically.
In it, I reveal how I made my dreams come true and I share how you can achieve your dreams too, only I’ll show you the ‘easy way’ to make it happen 😉
Here’s a hint: It’s a truly unique mental training technique that you can use to effortlessly magnify your efforts.
