We all admire people who are highly passionate and firey.
Sometimes they might frustrate us, but often deep down that’s because we wish we could be them.
We also wish we could follow our passions, speak our minds and live life to the fullest.
Well guess what: you absolutely can do that!
Being passionate isn’t a matter of genetics – it’s a choice.
And once you know that that’s what you want, it’s something that’s very much worth working towards.
Here are 3 things you can do to start living a more passionate life right now…
1. Be Who You Really Are – With No Apologies
The most important thing you need to do to be truly passionate is to be authentically you.
That means following interests that energise you no matter how weird or unusual they are.
When you do what you love, you give it 110%, and when you give it 110% you become more confident and excited about it.
Don’t do the thing that’s expected of you – do the thing that you truly want to do.
2. Speak Your Mind
Stop worrying what people think.
Notice how passionate people always seem to be shouting or proclaiming their love?
This is because they are following their heart and not worrying what others think.
Most of us are so afraid to speak our minds because we think we’re going to offend people that we end up walking around with our heads down.
You’ll still offend people – because it’s impossible not to – so you might as well be you and have a good time while you’re doing it.
3. Get Back Your Energy
What’s also important if you want to be passionate and full of life is to get your energy back.
To be passionate, you need to indulge yourself in the things you love.
And to do that you can’t be browbeaten and exhausted all the time.
If life and work always seem to be on top of you, then it’s time to make a change by spending less time commuting and working and more time eating right, getting sunshine and going to the gym.
If it seems like life will get on top of you if you take time out, then that’s the sign you need that something needs to change.
