10 Questions to Find Your Passion

10 Questions to Find Your Passion

Only 1 in 3 Americans are happy, according to this article. If you’re in the minority, and you’re feeling happy and fulfilled in your life, that’s great! If you’re not, here are some questions to help you find your passion. Figuring out what lights you up and makes you feel completely alive can help you kickstart the new year and make it the best year ever.

To get the most out of these questions, turn of all distractions and let your imagination run wild. Give yourself the permission to dream big. If you’ve been stuck in the daily grind for years, you may find your fears kick in as soon as you start dreaming big. You’ll instantly start thinking of all the reasons your dreams are irrational or impossible. Ignore those thoughts and focus on the questions.

When you discover your passion, and you combine it with your strengths, you come alive and shine. Finding your passion can take time and effort, but the investment is worth it.

Here are 10 questions to help you find your passion.

Picture your life with unlimited resources. How would you spend your days?

We all have the ability to make a dent on the world. What dent do you want to make?

6. What makes you feel totally alive?

If you can think of several things, think about the common theme among them. Is there a theme of freedom? Traveling? A certain subject?

7. What do you love doing so much that you lose track of time when you do it?

Is there something you do that you get completely absorbed in?

8. What are you completely amazing at?

Sometimes it’s hard for us to see our strengths. Do you get complimented frequently on being really great at something? Think about what comes easily for you that others struggle with.

9. Who inspires you?

Consider not only who they are but why they inspire you.

10. What would you do if you could conquer your fears?

If you haven’t found your passion yet, keep searching. This free workbook has more questions to help you find your passion. Self-discovery is important, so keep learning about yourself and what you love. When you choose to put in the time and effort to discover your passion, and then you make room in your life to regularly spend time doing what you love, your life greatly improves.

Also, surround yourself with people who inspire you. As Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” If you want to improve your life, hang out with people who are positive and encouraging, and who are doing amazing things. Connect with people who are already doing what you hope to do. If it doesn’t work out to connect in person, connect online. In today’s world, we can connect easily with people across the globe instantaneously. The people you choose to spend time with can greatly influence your ability to find and do what you love.

I’m convinced that the world would be a better place if we come alive and spend our time doing what truly matters to us. When we find our passion and focus our lives on what we love, our lives become more fulfilling and we can give the best of ourselves to the world.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
