Your Passion & Potential

Posted on Oct 4, 2011 | by Brenda Stanton

If there is no passion in your life, then have you really lived? Find your passion, whatever it may be. Become it, and let it become you and you will find great things happen FOR you, TO you and BECAUSE of you.”~T. Alan Armstrong

I love the quote above for many reasons – but most of all because it speaks the Truth about what it means to allow your passion to engulf and take hold of you – to allow it to own you!

By giving your passion permission to take charge and to take hold of you – you also give yourself permission to realize that your life will never be the same once you do.

See, when you really get serious about living your life’s purpose and doing what it is that you not only love, but are gifted at, the Universe takes notice and begins to feel your energy, your passion, your drive – and all sorts of amazing things begin to happen.

Just like T. Alan Armstrong says in his statement above: “…you will find great things happen FOR you, TO you, and BECAUSE of you.”

It’s true.

Why else would you be given a passion – something that you feel so deeply about – if it weren’t intended to not only light you up – but to light others up as well?

When you make the choice to follow your passion you will inevitably grow. You will learn how-to connect and trust your True Self – and how-to step-out and take risks while having immense courage and Faith that you’ll be okay.

By making all these choices, you are forced (in a good way!) to grow –and as a result, you realize your full potential and re-discover who you really are – again and again and again.

The beautiful thing about this process is – it never ends. You evolve and grow continuously and you continue to discover more passions, more loves, more excitement, more things to discover – and more growth!

So what do you do if you aren’t certain about what it is that you’re passionate about? Where, what, and whom do you turn to help you get some clues and to gain clarity? Where do you begin?

To get you started on remembering your passions – it first begins with looking back on your life –and accessing what the circumstances were, and what you did to keep yourself lit-up and alive – regardless of what was going on. Think back to ages of 5-7 years old and to what you were doing with all that time on your hands.

Were you outside in nature feeling connected with all that is? Or were you coordinating theater and plays in the back-yard? Were you leading yourself into entrepreneurial ventures with a lemonade stand? Or were you under a tree in the backyard buried in a book?

The important thing to know is: your passion and the realization of your potential and purpose – isn’t going to be discovered in the latest personality test or assessment. Your next linear corporate career may be, but not passion. Your passion isn’t linear, it’s organic, wild and always growing and evolving.

If you found yourself buried in books, there is a clue that you love to learn and most likely are destined to write – or maybe even teach, speak and communicate in some capacity.

If you found yourself making peace out of a very stressful situation and trying to make everything right again, you no doubt have healing qualities and are here to help and care for others, while continuing to help and care for yourself.

If you were always with the family pet or out in nature, there is no doubt animals or plants and nature are strong influencers in your life – and could possibly be tied into your life’s calling.

The goal with this process is to first remember in order to look forward. Trust that it is this simple as looking back into your childhood and remembering what lit you up – as it will give you clarity and clues on what will not only continue to light you up and give you more zest for life – but will no doubt do the same for others.

Your job is to first make the make the commitment to allow your passion to take hold and to direct you to where you’re destined to go. Now, the question is, will you?
