March 16, 2015 Source alittleoppulent.com
It’s often not until someone prompts us to think about the work that we do that we recognise how we truly feel about it. Sometimes, all it takes is the right question to make us look at our job in a whole new light. Today, I ask you this: How would you feel if you were to stay in your line of work forever?
If, upon reading that last sentence, you were filled with warm fuzzy feelings – congratulations, you might just have found your passion. Here are 20 signs that let you know that you’ve found the passion that makes your heart sing!
You consistently wake up before your alarm clock, excited to start work.
The idea of building your career fills you with anticipation, not dread.
You’re a little freaked out by the magnitude of everything that you have to do – not because you don’t want to do it, but because you want so badly to succeed.
You “productively procrastinate” – Whenever you get bogged down in one task, you take a break and distract yourself with something that benefits your passion, too.
You get a little twinkle in your eye and a grin on your face whenever you’re asked what you do.
You’d rather stay up working than watching TV.
You sometimes dedicate your weekends to work, and don’t even mind doing so.
You’ve got an insatiable appetite for books, blog articles and anything else that you can get your hands on related to your field.
When you think of a life without your passion, you feel empty.
You make room in your life for your passion, scheduling personal appointments and everything else around building your dream.
You find it difficult to relate to people who have no desire to pursue their own dreams.
You’ve found yourself cutting out negative thinkers from your life. You won’t let small minds talk you out of big ideas!
You’d rather have a “dream lunch date” with your business idols than your favourite celebrities.
You wake up thinking about it. You go to sleep thinking about it. Actually, there aren’t many moments where you’re not thinking about it.
Your head is constantly spinning with ideas. You have brainwaves in the car, in the shower and any other inconvenient locations.
You hear others complaining about their jobs and careers and, although you feel sad for them, you’re thrilled that you can’t relate.
You’re constantly thinking of ways to improve your business and make it even better. You know you dream big, but you also work hard and back yourself with the confidence to try and make it happen.
You start realizing that friends, family and even total strangers start coming to you for advice related to your field or entrepreneurialism.
Following your passion has taught you that you need to be working with something that you can throw your all into – whether its this passion or another one. You are no longer willing to settle for just a job that pays the bills but crushes your soul.
You found yourself nodding throughout this list, reaffirming that you’ve found your place. And knowing that you’re bold enough to pursue your passion? Well, gives you a completely indescribable feeling in the most wonderful way.
