Finding Your Passion

While in Italy this past week, I had a great talk with Gary Zelesky. Gary Z is known as the Passion Doctor, and he is an expert at helping people find what they were born to do in life. (Be sure to listen to this week’s podcast for our discussion on finding your passion.) There are a lot of people who don’t know what they were created to do. They do not know why they are here, and they don’t know what they should do with their lives. In our conversation, Gary Z shared the following wisdom about how to find what you were born to do.

If you want to be a person of greatness, if you want to reach your goals and accomplish remarkable dreams, you must acquire the mental strength and the critical ability to FOCUS.

I am convinced that the only reason people fail is lack of focus in their lives. Listen to me very carefully here. You can set goals. You can map out a plan. You can have great friends. But unless you have focus, you will not achieve those goals and you will not grow stronger. Let me illustrate this with a road trip.

It is essential for every leader.
It cannot be bought.
It cannot be delegated.
It is recognized across all cultures, races and eras.
It is wholly unassociated with economic status.
It is the ultimate measure of a person of greatness.

What is the first response that comes to mind when I say, “Let’s talk about EXCELLENCE?” If you read this blog last week, I hope you have made an intentional effort to make your thoughts positive. So maybe your first thought was, “Fantastic! This is exactly what I have wanted!”

If you missed last week, I encourage you to go back and read that coaching on PERSPECTIVE. You will be glad you did. But, back to EXCELLENCE…maybe you were slightly less excited and you thought, “Excellence! That takes too much effort. How about ‘good enough’?”

If you can change your thinking, you can change your life. How you think is the number one key to determining your life. Your perspective will control whether or not you will be happy and content. Your outlook will establish if you will be wealthy and if you will have a healthy body. Your mindset will determine if you will have a life of success and leave a legacy of significance. It is critical that you hear me on this. Your thinking controls your life. That is easy to say, but do we really believe it? Do we work to change our thinking? Do we study, read, listen to coaching, and daily make the necessary efforts to direct and manage our thoughts? If you don’t work to create a success mindset, your life will be controlled by a “get by” or a negative mindset. You are in control. You decide. You choose what your life will become.
