Once you have analyzed your situation, you may well find that if you change your mindset, alter one or two problems at work, you will once again enjoy your full time job with the same passion as when you started. If on the other hand, you have decided to change your way of life, then you need to work on the next step.
In order to get your juices flowing, you have to determine the following;-
a) Are you better working with a team or alone?
b) Are you more logical minded or more on the creative minded side?
c) If you’re working with numbers, would you prefer working on the design side of things?
Now you need to get your adrenalin pumping and reestablish the balance between your mind and your body so exercise regularly for at least half and hour each day. Stop smoking, eat healthily and drink plenty of water. Your healthy bod and mind will help your passion return to do what you love best.
If you are happy to stay in your present career, think about expanding your knowledge by attending seminars or classes to help you further your career.
However, if you feel you would be better off doing something completely different, take time off to travel and broaden your perspective. Take a half-pay sabbatical if you can.
Experience has shown us that intention by itself does absolutely nothing. However, when you include an emotion, and trust your emotions (in other words ‘go with the flow’), it works a whole lot better. It is indeed a balance and once your thoughts and feelings are working in harmony with your brain and your body, you are in a state of being. You are ready to listen to what you are thinking.
Your passion will not arrive overnight. If you follow these proactive steps, you will eventually see a gradual boost in your enthusiasm and you will start the day with a fresh mind set which will be contagious to your fellow workers. You will feel in control of your life once again and your future will be in your hands once again. YOU will take control. YOU will determine what YOU must do to protect your family and YOURSELF for YOUR future.
It really is up to each person to decide what challenges them. Just as Nike’s motto states – “Just Do It”. Your natural challenge instinct will drive you through. Don’t wait around waiting to be inspired. Look into YOURSELF for your own inspiration. It is there. It just needs encouraging. “Just Do It!”
