Day 17 – Identifying your passion and gaining momentum

Day 17 Passion Discovery Actions

1. Write down your newly defined mission statement. Writing it down (and reminding yourself daily—either written or aloud) is important for you to really believe and integrate this. Don’t worry, we will keep reminding you!

I give myself permission to:

  1. Research and Experiment to find work that energizes me and allows me to provide great opportunities for my family.
  2. Simplify my life by focusing on three passion themes (Playing/Recording Music, Photography, Health & Fitness)
  3. Find a way to help/inspire others through Blogs, Vlogs, Websites, Music, Photos..ideally within the themes I am passionate about.

2. By now you should have a list of things you think you might be passionate about (Day 5).

  • Music: Recording
  • Music: GuitarGuitar
  • Photography: Travel, Action Sports, Landscape
  • Health and Fitness
  • Action sports

3. You should also have identified five things you know you rock at (Day 8).

  • Yes

4. Now compare the list you created in Step 2 with the strengths you have in Step 3. Weed out the things that don’t align with your strengths. (Don’t worry, you can get to them later!)

  • Done

5. Now compare your shortened list in Step 4 to your values. Weed out the things that don’t align with your values and strengths.

  • Done

6. Ideally, narrow this down until you can pick one thing to pursue that you are really excited about right now. Wait for it… this is the “passion” we are going to commit to experimenting with moving forward, woot, woot! Let this be the focus for your Mini-Experiments, Mentoring, your Modeling and how you are going to Pay It Forward.

  • Music: Recording
  • Music: GuitarGuitar
  • Photography: Travel, Action Sports, Landscape
  • Health and Fitness: Mountain Biking & Body Weight Fitness

7. Now, identify seven tiny, actionable steps you can take starting today to get into momentum. Think of something that will take you five minutes or less. Write them down, and then do each one! Once each step is complete, identify the next step and then the next. This is how momentum happens.
