Do you find that some days you wish you lived a different life? Perhaps you find yourself wishing that you were Richard Branson, Donald Trump or Brad Pitt. It isn't unusual to wish you lived a different life or were someone else. If you find that you have days where you feel unsatisfied or discontented, then it may be time to think about what you can do turn your life around.
What's different about your life and that of those you admire and who inspire you? At first glance it may be that you think it's money or fame. Often you will look at possessions. Instead look deeper and list those qualities that you admire. It may be that you are inspired by their skills, knowledge, generosity or temperament.
What do they have that you don't? They have passion and a purpose. They have something that they care about and are filled with a desire to make a difference; not just for themselves but for others.
Your life can be fulfilling. Living a life with passion and purpose is possible for everyone. You do not need to be rich, famous or highly educated.
To find your passion and purpose you need to discover what you really want. Don't just consider material objects, look deeper at lifestyle, relationships, your health and emotions.
For a positive difference to take place you don't need to give up your job and follow your calling 100% of the time. You can start small and paint your masterpiece or write your novel in your spare time. This will allow you to begin to feel the benefits of doing what you love and feeling the positive effects and changes while still working and earning an income.
Not everyone wants to change the world. It may be that you want to make a difference by volunteering at the local homeless shelter. Your desire to bring about positive change in the lives of others, less well off than yourself, will bring about an enormous change in your life. You will experience the joy of giving and in return feel a sense of satisfaction. In addition, you'll probably pick up new skills, make new friends and connections and discover other changes you want to make in your own life.
Everyone deserves to live their best life. All you need to do is find what you really want to do that can make you feel excited, joyful, engaged and fulfilled. That way you can begin to live your best life instead of settling for a humdrum existence.
