11 ways to find your passion

1. “Don’t try” #

if it doesn’t come bursting out of you
in spite of everything,
don’t do it.
unless it comes unasked out of your
heart and your mind and your mouth
and your gut,
don’t do it.
if you have to sit for hours
staring at your computer screen
or hunched over your
typewriter
searching for words,
don’t do it.
if you’re doing it for money or
fame,
don’t do it.

10. The ghosts of your deathbed #

Imagine if you will be on your death bed — And standing around your bed — the ghosts of the ideas, the dreams, the abilities, the talents are given to you by life.

And that you for whatever reason, never acted on those ideas, you never pursued that dream, you never used those talents, we never saw your leadership, you never used your voice, you never wrote that book.

And there they are standing around your bed looking at you with large angry eyes saying we came to you, and only you could have given us life! Now we must die with you forever.

The question is — if you die today what ideas, what dreams, what abilities, what talents, what gifts, would die with you? “ — Les Brown
