It’s much easier than you think.
So there I was yesterday, not feeling motivated to do any work and I thought I’d listen to a ‘Les Stroud’ podcast and tidy my office up.
In the process I came across one of my many notebooks, now you should know that I’m a ferocious taker of notes. It’s why I never run out of things to write about. In fact I’ve currently got 9 different categories of notes on the go.
The one I’m going to reference in this Qigong Daily post is my stripy one.
In it I keep my “Life Notes”, non-Qigong stuff I think is important to living my life On Purpose. I started this puppy back in 2006 and it’s not even half full yet. Which shows you how often I come across material important enough to go in it.
As I was flicking through it I came across this headline I’d clearly taken some time over:
It had two simple steps underneath it.
Would you like to know what they are?
You say you do, okay then here they are dear Qigong Daily reader:
- Expose yourself to as many new things and activities as possible.
- When you find something you like, dig deeper into the subject, activity or thing and see if it sticks.
Now step one needs a little further explanation.
You need to expose yourself to things which at first glance you might think you won’t like. For example a few activities that would fit that principle for me are:
- Doing a flower arranging course.
- Taking a French lesson.
- A singing class
And so on.
But here’s the important point to consider:
If your passion was already hiding in your life amongst those activities and subjects you know you like, surely you’d have found it by now?
So it stands to reason that your passion is actually going to be found outside of your normal experiences and activities you like.
Unless of course you’re a bit of a dreamer like me and you haven’t actually got around to taking that scuba diving lesson, or outdoor wilderness survival course and all those other activities you think you might enjoy.
Now if you want to find your ‘Passion’ you know what to do don’t you?
Though who says you can only have one?
If you’re like me and one of your passions is Qigong then you’ll know that I’m launching the Qigong Inner Circle Letter in the next few weeks. One of the questions I keep getting about this exciting project is this:
- If you practice Qigong every day.
- If you believe that your health, happiness and well-being is your responsibility.
- If you prefer to read from paper instead of a computer screen.
- If you want to be part of a group of like minded people.
- If you’re prepared to take action on what you learn.
Then… there’s a good chance the QIC Letter will be a very good fit for you.
If you haven’t done so already, I urge you to join the 209 people who have already expressed an interest in subscribing to the QIC Letter. Because it’s the only way you’ll be able to take advantage of the special ‘founders’ rate I’m offering.
Your invitation is waiting for you here:
Bye for now.
