Why Giving Time to Your Passion is Important

Why Giving Time to Your Passion is Important

We are all different, our perceptions, our paradigms, our passions, all are different. As Albert Einstein said:

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”  

    To know our own genius we need to know ourselves better. You may love painting or dancing or writing or anything else, but in reality you may not be able to spend a lot of time doing these activities, because you have to earn money, you have to do the regular 9 to 5 job to sustain your responsibilities. Eventually, even the thought of following your passion may lead you to believe that you are not lucky enough to do what you love doing!!

    Many people are able to follow their passion and still make a living. Travel bloggers are often those who love to travel and write; personal trainers or yoga teachers love to be fit and show others how to do the same; editors get to read books and articles all of the time and they immensely love doing it; crafters of all sorts create items and sell them online and at flea markets and festivals. You need to break down the barrier that tells you the only way to make a living is to do something you don’t like. It simply isn’t true.

    Now comes the second step, you need to ponder the question, “What is your niche?” In essence, you are asking yourself: “What would you love to do, all your life and will smile while working hard at it.” Take your time and take a vacation for your vocation.

    You need to think about it. Most of us don’t even know what we love doing, because we have never thought about having a job which we would love to have.

    So get to it. Start exploring. Learn your passions. You need to follow your passions because:

      7. Have faith. Believe that it is possible for you too.

       

      There is nothing wrong in doing a Job or studying while following your passion. You can balance both work and leisure time. At the end it is more important to live your life fully. With some self discipline, you will start managing your time and you too will find time for your passions and eventually, maybe, you can start making a living from them.

      Let your life sing your tune….you just dance!

      8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

      8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

      Minimalism is a way to put a stop to the gluttony of the world around us. It’s the opposite of every advertisement we see plastered on the radio and TV. We live in a society that prides itself on the accumulation of stuff; we eat up consumerism, material possessions, clutter, debt, distractions and noise.

      What we don’t seem to have is any meaning left in our world.

      By adopting a minimalist lifestyle, you can throw out what you don’t need in order to focus on what you do need.

      I know first hand how little we actually need to survive. I was fortunate enough to live in a van for four months while traveling throughout Australia. This experience taught me valuable lessons about what really matters and how little we really need all this stuff we surround ourselves with.

      Less is more.

      Living a minimalist lifestyle is reducing.There are a few obvious benefits of minimalism such as less cleaning and stress, a more organized household and more money to be found, but there are also a few deep, life-changing benefits.

      What we don’t usually realize is that when we reduce, we reduce a lot more than just stuff.

      Consider just some of the benefits of living with fewer possessions:

      1. Create Room for What’s Important

      When we purge our junk drawers and closets we create space and peace. We lose that claustrophobic feeling and we can actually breathe again. Create the room to fill up our lives with meaning instead of stuff.

      2. More Freedom

      The accumulation of stuff is like an anchor, it ties us down. We are always terrified of losing all our ‘stuff’. Let it go and you will experience a freedom like never before: a freedom from greed, debt, obsession and overworking.

      3. Focus on Health and Hobbies

      When you spend less time at Home Depot trying unsuccessfully to keep up with the Joneses, you create an opening to do the things you love, things that you never seem to have time for.

      Everyone is always saying they don’t have enough time, but how many people really stop and look at what they are spending their time doing?

      You could be enjoying a day with your kids, hitting up the gym, practicing yoga, reading a good book or traveling. Whatever it is that you love you could be doing, but instead you are stuck at Sears shopping for more stuff.

      4. Less Focus on Material Possessions

      All the stuff we surround ourselves with is merely a distraction, we are filling a void. Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy comfort. After the initial comfort is satisfied, that’s where our obsession with money should end.

      We are bombarded by the media presenting promises of happiness through materialistic measures. It’s no wonder we struggle everyday. Resist those urges. It’s an empty path, it won’t make you happy.

      It’s hard not to get roped into the consumerism trap. I need constant reminders that it’s a false sense of happiness. I enjoy stuff, but I also recognize that I don’t need it.

      5. More Peace of Mind

      When we cling onto material possessions we create stress because we are always afraid of losing these things. By simplifying your life you can lose your attachment to these things and ultimately create a calm, peaceful mind.

      The less things you have to worry about, the more peace you have, and it’s as simple as that.

      6. More Happiness

      When de-cluttering your life, happiness naturally comes because you gravitate towards the things that matter most. You see clearly the false promises in all the clutter, it’s like a broken shield against life’s true essence.

      You will also find happiness in being more efficient, you will find concentration by having refocused your priorities, you will find joy by enjoying slowing down.

      7. Less Fear of Failure

      When you look at Buddhist monks, they have no fear, and they have no fear because they don’t have anything to lose.

      In whatever you wish to pursue doing you can excel, if you aren’t plagued with the fear of losing all your worldly possessions. Obviously you need to take the appropriate steps to put a roof over your head, but also know that you have little to fear except fear itself.

      8. More Confidence

      The entire minimalist lifestyle promotes individuality and self reliance. This will make you more confident in your pursuit of happiness.
