I have written a couple different World Changing Wednesday posts about how you can affect change and change your world. But today's post is different.
Today I will show you how to find your passion.
And your passion, it's the key to discovering what you were put here on this earth for.
Today sit down, with a pen and paper, in a quiet peaceful spot. Turn off your cell phone, and set the timer for an hour. Just one hour!
Then think. Allow your mind to wander, and yourself to be vulnerable. Because in order to have a mighty influence in this world, you need to figure out what your passion is!
So think about what breaks your heart.
The thing that when you think about it, it makes you so sad, and so angry at the injustice and horror of it, that is your passion.
It is when you find your passion, that a fire will be ignited in you, and you will start doing deeds of epic proportions!
Think about it!
Mother Theresa's passion was the sick and the poor.
Gandhi's was freedom.
Martin Luther King's was equality.
The Dalai Lama's is peace.
All of these people made history! And it was because they discovered their passions, and pursued it with everything they had!
- Sex trafficking.
- Labor trafficking.
- The Sick.
- War. War ravaged countries.
- Abused animals.
- Endangered animals.
- Child Soldiers in Africa.
And this is just a starter list! Start looking around you; Read the newspapers, join groups, see the injustices, and don't turn a blind eye to them anymore!
1. Figure out your passion, as stated above.
This is the easy part! Your heart will guide you, and tell you what your passion is!
Then once you figure out your passion, you;
2. Research, research, research!
Find out as much about the cause as you can. Find statistics, figure out what needs to be done, and learn as much as possible! Also, if something lights a fire in you, it probably has for other people too! So look up groups in your community, or beyond, who are involved in the cause you want to be involved in. That doesn't mean that you necessarily have to join that group or that cause, but it's good to know what's out there. Attend a meeting, look at their website, learn what they are doing to further their cause. Then;
3. Decide if it's the right fit for you.
Maybe you will absolutely love what these groups are doing. Maybe you won't. Maybe you want to do your own thing! Start your own group! Or you could see what they are doing, and get inspiration and ideas for what you want to do.
4. Write it all down.
Write down your passion, and the injustice that you seek to fix.
Make a mission statement. All great organizations have one.
Write down why this injustice makes you so mad.
Write down what you think needs to be done about it.
Write down what you can do.
Write down the various groups and organizations that are doing what you would like to do. Write down what you like and don't like about those organizations.
5. Take action!
If you have found an organization that is right on track with your thoughts, find out when they hold meetings. Attend the meetings. Speak your voice. Give ideas. Volunteer when they need volunteers. Give money when they need money.
If you haven't found an organization, make one!
Start your own non-profit!
Or just start small.
Start doing the things you wrote on your list, that you think needs done.
Start giving of your time, and your money.

Peace Love and Changing this World
