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?
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?
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?
It seems like there are rules for everything. How to eat, how to workout, how to save money, how to spend money, how to work, how to sleep, how to live. Don’t do this, do that, do it this way.
My kids have ‘Mom’s Rules’, I always tell them – ‘choose to be happy’, ‘do your best’ and ‘have fun’. Life is meant to be lived, experienced and enjoyed! Below is a list of some ‘rules’ that I live my life by.
Choose to be happy – You can choose to be happy and have a good day. It is your choice to react or respond in a way you want to be, do and live.
Do your best – Always do your best at whatever you are doing.
Be! Do! Live! – Be who you want to be, do what you want to do, and live how you want to live.
Enjoy the journey – Experience life fully! Happiness is enjoyed in life’s moments and experiences.
Love unconditionally – Love without judging.
Be curious – Explore, learn and imagine, let your imagination free.
Smile – A smile can brighten a day.
Have goals and visions – Goals are your life journey and give your life purpose.
Live in present moment awareness – Be present to what you are doing and who you are with.
Be positive – Having a positive attitude and positive thoughts create your positive results.
Take care of yourself – Put yourself first, emotionally mentally and physically.
Grow – Continually become better, being who you want to be and doing what you want to do.
Believe in yourself – You can be, do and have anything that you desire.
Play! Create! Live! – Play with life and create the life that you want to live.
Be active – Move your body.
Quiet your mind – Allow your mind to free itself of all thought.
Enjoy nature – Connect to Earth’s beauty and magnificence.
Be grateful – Feeling gratitude for your experiences attracts positive to you.
Have fun – Enjoy what you are doing. Laugh out loud. Be silly. Be free.
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!
