Don’t you think it’s about time you followed your passion?
In this video, Joshua Bevan learns how important it is to achieve success by following your passion. Using your special talents to help the world is not only vital to your own happiness, but it is also the key to living a life of true love and meaning. We all know that finding and following your passion can be challenging, but, as Joshua finds out, you have been given a gift to give to the world. Once you truly believe that following your passion can lead to success, the proper path will become easy.
We’ve heard it before: You’ve been given a gift. You have special gifts.
But the thing that they don’t say is that the gift is not for you. The gift is for you to give to the world. Let me put it like this: When I was eight years old, I went to Jill Flores’ birthday party. The party was a regular 8 year old’s party… balloons, cake, games.
One of the cool things that I remember is that Jill’s family had a big property and they collected a lot of big crazy stuff from movie sets and theme parks… It was all basically junk, but it was really fun to play around.
Now, when you go to a party, what do you bring? A present, right? Well, at the time, I was not an eight year old girl. I didn’t have any frame of reference to pick out a present. Nor did I have any money to buy one if I did. So my mom bought the present. I think it was a my little pony. Then my mom wrapped up the birthday gift, gave it to me, and drove me to the party. When we got there, I gave Jill her gift, and I had a great time at the party.
That’s the way it works when you’re eight, and that’s the way it works for the rest of your life.
You have been given a gift. It’s been wrapped up nice and pretty. But the gift is not for you. The gift is meant for you to give to the world.
Once you start giving your gift to the world, you are going to have a great time at the party.
Now, when I was 8, my mom went out and got a my little pony, wrapped it up and handed it to me. What would happen if I never gave that gift to whom it was intended for? What if I just stayed home, and let the pretty wrapped package gather dust on the shelf? Two things would happen:
- Jill would have lost out on that my little pony. Not a huge bummer if she misses one toy horse. But, what if a lot of the other kids stayed home also? What if the only kid that came gave Jill a my little pony sparkling stable, but she had no ponies to put in it? The same thing is happening in the world right now. Too many people are wasting their time in jobs that they hate while their gifts sit on a shelf gathering dust. That doesn’t just affect you. That affects all of us.
- The second thing that would have happened if little eight year old Joshua was to scared to take his gift over to Jill Flores’ house, is that I wouldn’t have had any fun at the party. I wouldn’t have gotten any cake and ice cream. I wouldn’t have been able to play any games. I wouldn’t have been able to ride that giant spinning barrel that I’m pretty sure used to be at Magic Mountain.
When you give your gifts to the world, you have a good time. That’s the best part about your special gifts. Not only are you good at giving them, you have fun doing it! So do it. I understand that we all have to tread water a little bit. But there is plenty of time in everyday. Message me and I will help you look at your schedule and find some time to give your gift to the world.
I used to think that you had to work hard at success in order to be able to enjoy your passions. But it’s the opposite: you must work hard at your passions in order to enjoy success!
Let me know what your passions are. Tell me about your gifts. And tell me how I can help.
