Wanted to get a quick post up letting you know what I'm doing or plan to do in order to help uncover my passion. After discussing the power of habits, I wanted to provide a list of just what some of those habits might look like. Please comment, Tweet, or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to tell me what habits have contributed to your success and have led you to your passion!
2) Consume Uplifting Material
Our brains need nourishment just as much as our bodies. And just like rising trends of junk food, there has never been a time where we have access to so much junk to put into our minds. Instead of reading your favorite gossip blog or newspaper find a good book, or load up on the large number of uplifting blogs online. Instead of flipping through TV channels, go to YouTube and watch TED Talks or Talks at Google. Instead of listening to the radio as you go to work, load up your phone with hours of uplifting podcasts. The effort is worth it. I can personally tell you that I feel differently as I have attempted to fill my life with more uplifting material than things that are merely entertaining or even destructive.
C.S. Lewis said, "You can make anything by writing." Taking 'anything' at face value, I believe that through writing, you can make the best version of you that you could ever become. You don't need to be a strong writer (I never considered myself a writer, and neither did my English teachers as indicated by the only D's and F's that I've gotten in my educational career). You don't need to write for anyone but you. It can be in the form of a journal or a blog or fictional story. Writing is an exercise that allows your brain to explore, dream, imagine, analyze, expand, and develop to help you in all aspects of your life.
