It’s been a few weeks since we looked at our passions. If you are reading this first time in, check out the Passion Test in Step 3 first. By steering our lives in the direction of our passions, new opportunities arise, doors open. Our passions will naturally come to life through our individual gifts and talents, once the life-distractions are removed.
Out of the Passion Test comes a list of those things that we each believe are the most important to us. Then we simply choose those things above all else as we go through our daily lives. Except there is something in the way, many things perhaps, suffocating this gold-mine of creativity.
So here is another question, which will shine a light on removing these barriers.
Am I living my dream? If not, why not?
This is a good time to brainstorm all those things that have got between you and your passions, you and your dreams. Get them all out here and jot them down. Conduct this enquiry as fully as you can. However, I recommend recording them here in a way that is ‘light’, perhaps even with a wry sense of humor. Remember, we are discussing the past here .. and the past holds no power over our choices in the present moment.
In Step 6 I will present an opportunity to remove this entire list and to clear a path to a life of fulfillment and purpose.
