Discovering Your Passion in Tough Economic Times

 

“Cherish your visions and your dreams, as they are the children of your soul; the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.”
Napoleon Hill
I The topic of this week’s five minute tip is “Vision”.
In the best of times, many people find it difficult to aspire for a life that means risking whatever financial security they have. In the past year, as we have faced this “economic correction”, people have become even less available to their deepest dreams. Not surprisingly, this has led to the skyrocketing of addictive habits to numb the boredom, discontent, or anxiety attacks that are triggered from staying in a life that one has outgrown.
When we have come to the end of a cycle in our lives and we don’t look within for how to create the new chapter, crisis hits to force us into reconstruction. Although LifeQuakes often take this form, they dont have to. The birthing pains of entering transition are eased by actually using the emotions of a cycle closing to discover your dream destiny. Here is one technique you can do before getting out of bed for just five minutes.
With your eyes closed, set an intention that you will notice throughout the day, activities you engage in, people you meet, anything you read or observe that interests you.  Experience yourself noting it and then writing it down or calling yourself on your cell phone and recording the observation. At the end of the day, before going to sleep, scan the day and note the intensity of what you found of interest ranging from mild interest to excitement or inspiration. Keep these observations in a notebook or on your computer and do this every day that you can for three weeks.
At the end of three weeks, you will have compiled enough experiences that elicited the opposite of discontent and other fear based emotions. Now, spend five minutes a day holding the intention for a new blueprint of your life that contains these feelings. You don’t have to know what the new chapter is meant to look like. The beginning of creating the life of your dreams is at the feeling level so use the material from your life now that evokes joy naturally without substance abuse or other addictive distractions.
