What are your Passions?
Congratulations! You’re navigating through a big transition and want to reinvent yourself and create a new future around your passions.
Or you’ve decided to pursue a career change or a business startup idea that is aligned with your passions.
Do you know what your passions truly are?
When asked point blank, most people don’t know. They know what some of their passions are, but they might not be able to list their Top 5. Do you know what your Top 5 Passions are?
This Passions Discovery Tool provides you with thought-provoking exercises that will help you identify your Top 5 Passions. This will enable you to begin thinking about possible career opportunities, business ideas, or simply a joyful life that you can get really excited about.
Schedule at least one hour of quiet time so you can devote your attention to self-reflection and inner exploration.
Take a blank sheet of paper and complete each of the following 7 sentences by writing at least 5 endings each. Don’t over-think your answers.
1) If I had no constraints whatsoever (i.e. financial, geographical, physical, or time constraints), I would love to be ______________.
