    Super Passion Heros

    I am a very passionate person---there's no denying it.

    When I start a project, I will stay up for days to complete it.   When I offer to help someone, I will not rest until they are helped.  When I find something new and exciting, I will not stop reading and researching until I know everything about it.

    Now let me clear things up, I am no Super Passion Hero, there have been some things---things that really matter---that I totally screw up. I am passionate about my spin class---and---super passionate about eating.  I am super passionate about keeping a clean house---and--- just as passionate about avoiding this one messy drawer in my kitchen. Don't judge me.

    When it comes down to doing the things that matter the most, it is easy to get off track---especially when you are passionate about many things in life ( including the things that aren't that good for you.) It is easy to engage in certain activities that don't give you the results you desire for the sake of being busy.

    You must be systematic about staying focused on what matters if I want to experience the joy of fulfilling your passions.

    To all of my Super Passion Heros I want you to ask yourself this question:

    Is what I am doing right now on my list of things that matter most?

    If being multi-passionate is leading you away from the things that matter most, here is your approach:


    Review your intentions. No matter how many things you are passionate about, at the end of the day it all has to make sense. Your actions toward your passions should be intentional. Review your intentions or your reasons why you are doing what you are doing and ask yourself is this serving its purpose. Reviewing your intentions will keep you aligned with your purpose and focused on what matters.

    Develop hand written or typed and printed action steps. Creating actions steps, writing them down, and then crossing them off as they are completed, is the key to staying focused. You must have a plan, in the form of step-by-step actions. Hand writing it or typing and printing it will serve as accountability. As you complete a step you can cross it off. This simple strategy will keep you so focused on what matters, you won’t have time to be distracted.

    Ask the necessary questions. Before you act ask the question does this matter. I know you are passionate about many things---and---I know you are good at it all. But it's time to go from being good to being great.  It is impossible to be great at everything, at the same time! Master your passions one by one.  You can only do that if you focus on what matters the most.

    I Answer the Question---Now What

    Have you asked  the question Now What lately?

    Out of all of the questions that I am asked...this is my favorite because this is exactly where I found myself many years ago.  In October of 2002, I decided to leave the security of my social work career and pursue a career in music and a second career in personal development. You are reading this article today because I made that HUGE decision. Having the faith to make that decision is why I do what I do today. Aren’t you glad I did?!

    Keep It Moving..

    There is one thing that I find complete pleasure in.  That same thing brings me joy and contentment. When I get off track, this thing puts everything back into perspective.  When my life is hectic and I feel totally overwhelmed, its this thing that makes it all worth while...

    Life has NEVER been easy for me.  In fact, this past few years can only be compared to a Lifetime Movie---minus the cheating husband, seductive baby-sister, and murder plot.

    I have found the resolve to keep it moving because of my beautiful children.  They bring me pleasure, joy, contentment, proper perspective, and motivation.  Seeing them, hearing their laughter, and envisioning their bright future is what I use as inspiration when my circumstances seem bleak.

    If are feeling uninspired, joy-less, and ready to give up, here is your approach:

    Look back.  I love to use the expression the older mothers of my church always said, you may not be what you want to be, but thank God you are not what you use to be. In other words, be grateful for the progress you have already made.  If you were to complete an assessment of your life today, I am certain that you will find great areas of progression.  Taking a look back and seeing how far you have come will put things into perspective.

    Look ahead.  Your past is only relevant if what you have learned from it helps you or someone else. So after taking a brief look back, look ahead!!  With new insight, perspective, and motivation, things can only get better.  In fact, take a moment right now and create a list of things that you want to see in our future. What you see is what you will get!

    Find your thing.  As I shared with you, my thing for keeping it moving is my children.  They get me going every time.  Find your thing---the thing that will give you a jolt of joy when you are sad, perspective when you get off track, and motivation when you want to give up.  Every time you find yourself in a space that makes you want to give up, use that thing and KEEP IT MOVING!!

     

    Join the discussion in the comments below!  What helps you to keep it moving? How will you apply this approach to not giving up?
