Tip on How to Reconnect with your Real Passion

Are you one of those people who doesn't state their preference very often with a group?  I'm a go with the flow kind of girl so generally I'm happy to accommodate others when making plans.  Even when going out to dinner I always like to ask others where they want to go.  I still want to continue to do that but the shift I'm consciously going to make this week will be to decide where I want to go and state my preference.  You see, anytime you say "I don't know, I don't care, or it doesn't matter to me," you're refusing to chose and you're settling for less than what you want.  When you refuse to chose, you're actually numbing out your awareness and your awareness is one of the most powerful things you have going for you.  Every time you chose, you've tapped into a deeper part of yourself and have become more clear about what it is that you want.   The more clear you are about your wants and desires in small things, the more clear you'll be about about your wants and desires in bigger matters.  This is the gateway for reconnecting with your real passion. 

Your take action challenge:

Decide on your preferences this week.  Know what your wants and desires are in all your situations this week.  Notice what you're drawn to.  Sharpen your awareness of yourself and have fun!

Gosh, it's taken me a long time to figure this out.   If you're a subconscious people pleaser like I was, this quote is sobering :-)  Today, I've learned to question my motives.   Why do I do what I do?  Doing something for someone else because you desire to, is very different from doing something for someone else because you want their approval.   It comes from a different source.  One comes from fear while the other one comes from love.  Notice your motivates.  Are doing things that are in integrity with you are?    If not, what needs to change?  Your thoughts, behaviors, or something else?
