Reviving Your Passion
“Rest in reason; move in passion’
– Khalil Gibran
Reviving your passion can be accomplished in various ways; one way is to change the circumstances that engulf you.
Sometimes to unleash true passion in yourself, you may have to change your job to suit your aptitude better, or you may find that you do love your existing job, but simply don’t feel very passionate about it. Take some time to study your situation and then try to make a few changes to rekindle the passion you felt when you first started working.
Often, reviving your passion is just a matter of visualizing yourself working passionately at your job. Close your eyes and think about it for a few minutes. What would you be feeling? Do you have sharp focus, a clear vision of your future, total control and mastery over your work, a healthy body and an exuberant attitude? If the possibilities of your thoughts begin to excite you, then reverse engineer these thoughts to regain your passion.
Write down some of you ideas and put your plans into action. Enthusiasm does make a big difference.
Decide whether you work better with a team in the field rather than those solitary hours at a desk. Are you logical minded or creative minded? Are you locked up in a cubicle all day when you would rather be in the design section? Get a revised aptitude assessment done. Ask your supervisor or boss for a reassessment or a transfer to a more appropriate department.
If the thoughts of staying where you are leaves you feeling drained and discouraged, then it is time to make plans to change careers or consider your own business.
It takes a lot of though and careful planning for this move, but, if you realize that is what you really want for your future, the go for it. If you stay where you are and you hate everyday of the same old routine, then you will never be happy.
Another step that will help greatly in reviving your passion is to exercise your body for at least thirty minutes every day. Get the adrenaline pumping and flowing in your blood.
- Eat healthy foods and drink a lot of water. Quit smoking and using any stimulants. Restore the balance between your spiritual and physical being by meditation and prayer. Your refreshed body will invigorate your mind and passion will return.
- Some Ideas to Try. Increase your knowledge of your field by taking new study courses. Take time out to travel and widen your perspective. Take a half-pay sabbatical to add new qualifications to your resume. Some lateral career movement can bring an innovative twist in your way of working.
- Passion does not come overnight. Taking these proactive steps will see a gradual increase in your enthusiasm. You will begin working with a newly fired zeal which becomes contagious, motivating your teammates as well. You will have consciously taken charge of your life again and the fruits of prosperity will be in sight once again.
