If your answer is “yes,” I believe I know why.
First, let me tell you that I’ve struggled hard to achieve success for much of my life.
I know exactly what it’s like to feel like you’re swimming upstream…
While meanwhile, so many others seem to get what they want with no effort at all.
Fortunately, I “figured out” this discrepancy and achieved a life beyond my wildest dreams. That’s why I want to help you.
Today, I want to share a short lesson about discovering what truly drives you, because this will guide you as you create the life ahead of you.
How to Uncover Your Passion
First, if you’re reading this, you already have what it takes to become abundant and successful beyond your wildest dreams.
You’re seeking out the answers, and by seeking, you’ve proven that you’re ahead of 97% of other people.
The “invisible wall” I mentioned at the beginning is really about our subconscious beliefs.
Whether you realize it or not, there are thousands of beliefs that you harbor in your mind about the world that you’ve never really examined.
They’ve probably made their way into your head as a result of past experiences — especially emotional ones.
Some of these beliefs are really helpful (like the importance of looking both ways before crossing the street or cooking chicken before you eat it).
Other beliefs may actually be sabotaging your efforts in the world. For example…
- If you think money is the root of all evil, it’s basically impossible for you to ever become rich.
- If you think everyone is out to get you, you’ll always be unhappy in relationships.
Now, the first step to happiness in any endeavor is figuring out what’s going to make you happy.
Sometimes our passions just fall into our laps, but why leave things to chance?
You already have the power living inside you to start a process that magnetically attracts everything you desire to you. It all starts with your current state of mind.
I’d like to share a short but powerful exercise that will illuminate some of the most important aspects of your life.
There’s something magical that happens when you write down your goals and dreams, instead of just keeping them in your head.
After being written down on a page, your thoughts suddenly become more real… almost tangible.
Even if you’ve done an exercise like this before, you may be surprised at how much has changed since then, or how different your insights are in your current frame of mind.
To uncover a truth about yourself, take just a few minutes to list:
- 5 activities you wish you could do each week
- 5 features about the person you want to become
- 3 emotions you wish you could feel on a regular basis
You may want to consider material items (house, car), desired emotions (joy, security), pursuits that give you satisfaction (people you enjoy spending time with, any special hobbies), as well as your spiritual connection with the universe.
When you write your answers down, you are making the decision to start thinking about your life in a purposeful way.
That means you’ve taken the first step to creating your life the way you want it, instead of simply being an observer just waiting for things to happen.
Now that you have gotten a bit clearer on what you really want, how do you achieve it?
I want you to take one step, even a tiny baby step, right now, toward making one of the things you’ve listed become closer to reality.

Not sure what step to take first?
