How to Find Your Passion
Passion comes from within; it is all about you. You have do what makes you happy and makes you want to keep doing it. Without passion, it becomes harder to do those things we love.
Writing a book with passion makes your work shine and stand out. All you need is to find what you are passionate about.
You probably already know that if you are not passionate about what you write about, it will be much harder for you to write your book. One of your main goals should be to write something that you are very interested in. When you are extremely interested in a particular topic or subject you will tend to have more conviction and/or passion about the matter.
So how do you go about searching inside to find this passion? Well it takes a little time and work. It takes taking time to look within. The deeper you dig, the greater the reward. In fact, the payoff can be tremendous.
Along the way, you might learn things about yourself that will open amazing new doors of possibility and discovery for your work and your life.
So let’s talk about it.
You have to be passionate about your subject to be able to write an entire book on it. You must believe in it.
Your passion should come from A STRONG desire or your need to get your information into other hands because you care about it.
The First thing is to get to Know Yourself.
It’s important to understand what makes you tick, what motivates you, where you get your energy, and how you perceive the world. Understanding this about yourself helps you connect with your readers and your characters.
How you view the world is reflected in your writing, so make sure you use this clarity about yourself to help you focus on what is natural and right for who you really are — not who you wish you were or who others want you to be. Your uniqueness should shine through in your writing.
Next Define Your Qualities.
You might have a general idea of your skills, values, and interests, but have you really dug deep to determine which of those are imperative in your life?
Determine the values that define you, the skills that you enjoy, and the interests that are fulfilling and fun, so you will be creative, expansive, and focused in your writing and in life.
The third thing is to Create a Vision
By outlining a rough vision based on your personality, values, skills, and interests, you will begin to refine a purpose and mission for your writing and your life. Any passionate endeavor, bolstered by purpose, will have substance and longevity.
The fourth thing is to begin to Shift Your Mind
As you learn about yourself, you will begin having profound “ah ha” moments. Previous ways of thinking will be challenged. Things that you once accepted will no longer be acceptable.
You will want to address unmet needs and remove tolerations from your life that have been sapping your energy and attention. This will open your mind and your time for writing and for other passions you have discovered.
The final part of the process of discovering yourself and your passion is creating an action plan based on all you have learned. You may find there are many passions and options for your life in addition to writing.
Remember, you may have to do this work several times over the course of your writing career as you continue to evolve as a person.
Use everything you have learned about yourself to infuse your writing with dimension, substance, and presence. Armed with new self-awareness and growth, you will find passion in your writing and in your life beyond your wildest expectations.
Your writing will show just how passionate you are about a topic while you are continuing to gain new insights on yourself throughout the journey of writing a book. The deeper you are digging, the greater the reward.
