passion

what are you passionate about?

do you have a burning desire to live your truth? to live your dreams and desires?

dreams and desires fulfill passions. passions fulfill purpose.

“The purpose of life is to be happy.” ~Dalai Lama

passion is having a burning desire to experience or to have something. there are many things that i want and many things that i want to experience. they don’t all have the same level of desire. and my desire for a thing or an experience changes as well.

what keeps passion and desire for the wanted thing or experience high?

dscn6839

thinking about the desired thing and wanted experience and connecting to how you want to feel having experienced it keeps passion and desire high.

it is normal for passion and desire to ebb and flow.

when your passion is low connect to how you want to feel having attained your want or having experienced what you want to experience.

what are you passionate about?

who do you want to be? what do you want to do? what do you want to experience?

live your truth!

 

good failure

i am determined to learn and grow from my failures.

failure if you allow it is a teacher. a stepping stone along your journey.

failure if you allow it gives new energy and enthusiasm to create what you want. it gives renewed determination and a burning desire to succeed!

I will be using my recent failures to build a stronger foundation.

what have you recently failed at?

what are you scared of doing because you don’t want to fail?

experiencing life fully means taking risk. stepping out of your comfort zone and allowing yourself the opportunity to fail.

failures are a good teacher. failures are a good motivator. without failure, life journeys would not be as exciting.

take the risk! failing is not failing, failing is an exciting step of growth along your journey!

live your truth!

enthusiasm

enthusiasm!

a burning desire to have what you want to have; being who you want to be, doing what you want to do, and experiencing what you want to experience.

enthusiasm!

a high energy being connected to what you want, and what’s most important to you.

enthusiasm!

the image, the vision, in your mind for what you desire.

to keep a fire burning, the fire needs to be fed. to keep enthusiasm, a burning desire for what you want, you feed your mind positive thoughts and images for what you are desiring. you feed your mind positive new ideas and knowledge from books, audios, movies, and people that connect you to what you desire. feed your mind positive stimuli to spark thinking about your desire and building and clarifying your desire in your mind.

keeping your desire in your mind everyday by thinking about, and especially growing it through action is what keeps your desire at the top of your mind and to-do list so the busyness of day-to-day life doesn’t push your desire aside and down your list to-do.

I know that if I’m not keeping my enthusiasm high, then I’m not as involved in being who I want to be, doing what I want to do and experiencing what I want to experience as much as I want to be. Affirmations, imagining and studying keep my desires in my mind and keep me growing and taking actions to live my desires, to create and live the life that I want to live.

what’s most important to you, what’s your burning desire? is what you want in your mind and at the top of your list.

what’s most important to you?

do you feel enthusiastic when you think about your desire? do you feel positive high energy?

live your truth!

 

I want!

I believe that the first step to change is recognizing what to change. Responsibility, I have it, but not the way I want it now.

I want to live my dreams and desires. I want to create my visions.

I am grateful for all that I have, I have enough, but – I want more!

I want it all!

I want it to enjoy life fully, experiencing life. I want it to give back to others and be a difference maker. I want it to be the light to others. I want it so that I know that I can do it. I can create the life that I want to live. I can be who I want to be. I can do what I want to do. I can have all that I want to have. I can experience all that I want to experience.

I can Live My Truth! I AM! Be! Do! Live My Truth!

Live Your Truth!

Burning Desire

Do you wake with energy and enthusiasm excited for what you will experience and create this new day?

Do you have a burning desire for living your life? Do you live your life with passion and purpose?

I enjoy the high energy feeling that I have when I am connected to what I want and know what I can do to move myself closer to that vision. Knowing where I am and where I want to go, and some of the actions in-between gives me the passion to live my life with purpose.

It energizes me. It builds the burning desire to be who I want to be, do what I want to do and experience what I want to experience – to live my truth!

There are times I get caught up in certain actions and goals, get in the habit/routine of living by a to-do list and the day directing me rather than me directing the day. I’m not as energized, I’m not as excited, I’m not as enthusiastic.

I take some time to connect with myself and what it is that I want. Where am I? What’s working to get me to my vision? What isn’t? What do I want? What can I do to get me to my vision?

“The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat.” ~Napoleon Hill

And WOW, the flame is torched into a burning desire again. I’m waking with energy and enthusiasm excited for what I will experience and create in this new day!

What gives you energy and enthusiasm? What are you excited to experience and create today?

Live Your Truth!

Burning Desire

I’ve been thinking about my purpose and passion and my ‘burning desire’. Right now I feel I need to ‘fan the flames’, my desire is not a ‘burning desire’ right now. I feel that I’m holding myself back somewhere somehow, I’m scared of the changes and the transformation I will experience to attain my goals and visions. I’m at a point of living on the edge – which is where I want to be, and that I need to take the risk – which is what I want to do! I am at the point of pushing my comfort zone – and I need to push through, rather than stop or slow down – which is what I feel like I’ve done.

What causes me, or you, to stop or slow down in reaching for your visions and taking action on your goals?

  • Desire is not high, it’s not a burning desire right now
  • Not keeping your goals in front of you
  • Not having strong and focused visions and visualization
  • A shift in priorities

You can take action to create a ‘burning desire’ and live your life filled with purpose and passion. You can take action to live the life you want and move forward expanding and growing, being who you want to be and doing what you want to do.

  • Create good habits to empower your being and doing – affirmations, mediation to quiet your mind, yoga, working out, visualizing visions, gratitude, journaling, smiling
  • Modify your goals and actions to be aligned with your visions for your transformation and growth
  • Live by your truth and values, live by how you want to feel and allow yourself to enjoy the journey!
  • Time activity management – keep your goals before you and plan your day the evening before prioritizing your goals and actions allowing you to be present
  • Say ‘no’ to keep your goals and actions aligned with your priorities and visions
  • Grow – learn new things, expand your knowledge and study what you’re passionate about
  • Positive thinking – think about what you really want, replace thoughts of lack with positive thoughts of your visions and goals
  • Well being – be physically active and allow for rest and rejuvenation
  • Spend time with positive people that enhance and empower your life!
  • Act as if it were impossible to fail!

I have changes and growth I can take to create and increase my ‘burning desire’. I’m learning to say ‘no’ to what doesn’t align with my truth and visions, and say ‘yes’ to my visions and action goals. I am creating the habit of daily meditation to quiet my mind and strengthen my focus.

Is your desire a ‘burning desire’? Are your goals and daily activities aligned with your visions? Are you learning something new right now? Are you getting enough sleep, fresh air and daily movement? What new habit can you create to increase your ‘burning desire’?

Create your burning desire! Live with purpose and passion! Enjoy the journey!

Live your truth!
