Why Finding Your Passion Matters
Many have asked how they can find and know what they want to do in life. I tell them finding your passion means asking yourself a few simple questions.
Question 1: Ask yourself, what makes me happy?
Question 2: What do I love doing?
When you find those answers, start believing that you can attain them and become that person you wish to be. Stop self-doubting and start finding your passion.
The law of attraction will help you succeed as long as you believe in yourself. You must persist for long enough and never ever give up.
The first thing that always happens when you break free and start taking your first steps to success is that you start to fail. It happens to all. Since failure is
What most people do is to quit after they encounter failure. It is only failure if you quit. When you keep on going you will soon realize that failure is wisdom, it’s knowledge in disguise. The biggest fears we have in life are the fear of failure and the fear of what other people will think and say about us. These fears are stopping more or less every single person in taking the first steps toward their dreams.
Successful people don’t care about other people’s opinions, they are not afraid of failure. This is why they succeed. They believe completely in themselves.
I have failed so many times in my life that I’ve lost count of how many times I failed spectacularly. I went bankrupt two times, and before that I was even homeless for a period of my life, hiding from old colleagues or acquaintances because I had borrowed money from everybody.
Human life is a book full of empty white pages; as our lives go along we start writing our experiences on each page with our thoughts and emotions. We are the authors of our human experience on this planet, created by the world within us. Our outer world, or our reality, is a mirror and reflects what is happening inside us. That’s what we call our inner world.
Everything that happens inside you will eventually show up outside in your reality in the form of the
One client of mine asked me, why I do these success events, inviting celebrities and motivational speakers. I’ve already made enough money; technically, I never need to work for the rest of my life. What drives me to do it? The answer is simple, I have found a burning desire to help others reach greatness and make as many people as possible aware that we are so much more powerful than we actually believe. When we learn to navigate our minds and control them, life will never be the same again. You make yourself the captain of your own destiny. If many succeed, even if only a few before I pass away and they say that I was one of the reasons that made their life better and more successful, I will rest knowing that I have fulfilled my role and purpose on this planet.
I am a firm believer in finding the quickest way to abundance, joy, happiness, and success. My motto is to always give first whatever you seek. If you want success, make sure you help other people become successful. Say it’s money you need, help other people make money first. If it’s love you’re craving, make sure you start loving yourself first – only then can you give unconditional love to others. If you are looking for happiness, make sure you find ways to make other people happy first.
I called this the law of giving and it corresponds with the law of attraction in the most beautiful and mysterious ways. These two laws are inter-connected. By attracting more of the same things you give out, they’ll come back many times stronger than you can ever imagine in many various ways. It’s an exchange of energy. What you give is what you receive.
The first two essential things we really need to understand about mind power are that we are not our thoughts! We are a soul with thoughts and thoughts comes into our minds, which we have the power to control and select.
When you learn how to separate your thoughts from your mind and know that you are not your thoughts, only then will you have started your path to ultimate mind power and control. Have you ever heard the voice in your head? Well, that is not you! We get thousands of thoughts daily and here’s a way of seeing this:
Imagine a strong flowing river, let’s pretend that the fast flowing waters are your thoughts that just keep coming rapidly without control. Most people are in the river, struggling to keep afloat. They are fighting the flow of endless waters coming over them, feeling like they are drowning without knowing how to stop the rapid waters.
However, the few people that have mastered their thoughts are not in the river. They are standing beside it instead, watching and observing the flow of water passing calm and relaxed. It is the very same with your thoughts. Become an observer of the thoughts that enter your mind and analyze them.
Ask yourself, why did this thought enter into my mind and how does it make me feel? If the answer is negative then immediately replace it with an opposite thought or another that makes you feel good. Positive thoughts have stronger vibrational energy, therefore, as a consequence, they have a stronger impact than a negative one. The more you practice this, the faster you’ll become a master of your life, future, and happiness. All you need is training. Your brain is a muscle, and just like any athlete, it needs to be trained to become stronger.
Things that happen in life are the result of thoughts and emotions. An enlightened and highly successful person is also a master of emotional control. They do not let their emotions control their life and decisions.
That means, if you learn how to control your thoughts, you will also start learning to control your emotions. Why? Because emotions are originally created by thoughts! If you have negative thoughts, you’ll start getting negative emotions. If you are having positive thoughts, you start getting positive emotions. It’s as simple as that.
When you know this, you can break negative thoughts before they become negative emotions. Through this, you can stop attracting negative events into your life.
Remember, when you think big, think enormously. That’s the key. However, I would advise anyone to start in steps since the mind and the brain needs to be conditioned and convinced of their true and magnificent potential at first.
How do we train the mind, brain, and body? By taking small steps first, visualizing and materializing smaller goals and achievements.
When you start reaching those smaller goals, you start building confidence. You receive feelings of proof that the law of attraction does exist and that it really works. Just because we can’t see the vibrations and the energy of the law of attraction does not mean that it does not exist. We can’t see gravity, we can’t see radio or microwave energy but they still exist, right?
After you start reaching your smaller goals, then bigger things begin to happen. You can start visualizing and creating larger goals that you might have thought were too difficult at first.
When I started to apply the law of attraction, I was visualizing much smaller things, like a new TV, a new pair of shoes, or 10,000 baht of extra income within next month. Just remember to be specific. If it’s a TV, I would go on the internet and find a specific TV or brand, print it or cut it out from the A4 sheet. I would then put it on one of my walls at home that I often walked past. I’d do the same thing with a new pair of shoes, I’d decide on the brand, color, size, etc. Please remember to be specific, be very specific. That’s what we call precise vision boards.
The second, very important aspect of creation is imagination and visualization. There is a method of receiving and materializing. Once you have your goals and desires, don’t ever start thinking of how long it will take. Why has it not come yet? Will it really happen? These thoughts will push away your desires since they carry the same vibration and energy as your other thoughts. It’s not your job to know how and when it will happen, that’s the job of the universe. It will come to you at the very precise moment it is meant to come into your life.
Don’t worry about the time it will take to achieve something. Time itself will pass anyway, even if it takes days, months, or even longer. It’s the power of your mind and belief that determines the time it will take to receive it.
Most people wish, others hope, and some believe. All these three behaviors carry a form of doubt and it’s the doubt that keeps pushing your goals away or prolonging them.
Knowing is the fastest and most secure way of attracting what you want since there is no doubt in knowing. Wishing something will work is the weakest of emotions. Hoping is the second level and that’s when you start seeing some progress. Technically, you’re already thinking about the law, so you are starting to become aware of it.
Belief is the third level. That’s when you know it is working. You have already started manifesting things that you desire but (there’s still a but), you still have a small fear that you can’t create wonders and magnificent things.
Knowing is level four. You are fully aligned with your body, mind, and spirit. The law is everything and you live by it. Every single day, you live knowing that you are the master of your life. You’re able to create, be, and do whatever you put your mind to with zero effort.
I call these the four levels of thoughts.
We have thousands of thoughts every day and for most people that have not yet learned to control their minds, 70% of those thoughts are negative. That gives you an indication of how many negative events they are attracting into their lives. If a person just managed to have more positive thoughts than negative in a day (like 51% positive thoughts and 49% negative thoughts), he would have tipped the scale and is creating more positive occurrences in his life.
The only way everlasting love, joy, success, happiness and all the riches of this world can be attained is when we have mastered our own minds with our own knowledge that we, alone, are the creators of our future and destiny. When we have learned how to control our thoughts and emotions, we never hesitate to use them to our advantage and progression.
We live in an illusion. The human race has been blinded like there’s a fog in front of our eyes allowing us to see only a tiny fraction in front of us instead of the whole picture. We are full of human potential and possibility. Whatever created all things gave us a spark of its own creative powers. We, humans, are creators, indeed. We just need to learn how to start using this spark.
