Let's get started!
Learning what your bliss or potential is will change your life. It can transform everything from how you see yourself and the way you look at the world to what you believe is possible for you. That kind of change can raise a lot of fears about losing your friends and alienating those close to you who are more comfortable with the old you. You may also fear that you are risking a safe job and a secure paycheck for a pipe dream. Hidden obstacles that have been holding you back can also emerge from the shadows, blocking your progress.
If you are working, finding your bliss can mean you are no longer satisfied with your job and spark the desire to find new work that is more meaningful or fulfills your life calling. It could translate into needing to go back to school, starting a business or moving across the country to be part of the industry you feel called to. And if you are retired, friends and family may not understand your becoming passionate and action oriented just when they expect you to slow down and spend your days enjoy your grand kids and doing your favorite hobbies full time.
Regardless of where you are in life, the first thing you need to do is realize that ... Its Never Too Late. Whether you are in school, working or retired -- It is never too late to figure out what you love to do and to create a life around living your dreams. The second thing to realize is that ... If you want to find your bliss, you are going to have to discover it yourself. The answer to who you are and what you love is not contained in any book or sold in any store. Instead, the answers to what fires your imagination and makes your heart beat faster are found inside of you. The third thing to realize is ... In order to find it, you will have to go on a journey of self discovery. And you will have to keep at it until you find what you are looking for. That means that you may have to do something new, create some new habits.
1Turning idle daydreams into actively imagining your future.
We all have daydreams of working at the perfect job, making a great income and spending it to make all of our dreams come true. But often, that is as far as we get -- idle daydreams which we have no idea how to make real. These daydreams are, in fact, seeds of possibilities that need to be nurtured. By actively imagining possibilities for your future, you begin to explore the clues your imagination holds about what you love to do. Relying on yourself to figure it out. Many people think they will someday stumble upon their bliss. But figuring out your potential is not taught in most schools. And few parents, teachers or bosses know how to help. No one else can know what makes your heart leap, keeps you up reading late into the night, or draws you to it like a magnet. So you need to put yourself in the driver's seat and take control of your search for your bliss. Realizing it is never too late. Your whole life is ahead of you – No matter what’s happened in your past… there’s still another half to be lived. Right now is the time to start improving your life. So why not take a few baby steps and see what you can find?
Realizing you are not the only one. Millions of people all over the world graduate from high school, get up and go to work each day, and retire only a vague idea of what they really want to do with their life. Yet, every one of them had childhood dreams of greatness, and most still think about what they would do if they no longer had to earn a paycheck. So you are not alone if you're still searching for something more extraordinary.
Knowing where to start. Finding your bliss is like learning to drive or ride a bike -- much easier if someone else can show you how. Unfortunately, few people have found their own bliss, and even fewer are skilled at helping others find theirs. You must find your own way.
Taking care of Business.
This is the hard part, the part where you must create space and time for all of this. The part where you must evaluate how you are taking care of business. If you've gotten this far...
