Find Your Passion, Find Your Piece...Of the Puzzle!

Find Your Passion, Find Your Piece…Of the Puzzle!

Find your passion, find your piece…of the puzzle!  Interestingly enough you will also find your peace.  And is there anything more important than finding both your piece of the puzzle and your peace of mind?  I don’t think so either!  Now, before I get into it, let me give credit where it’s due.  This concept of “Find Your Passion, Find Your Piece” came from the mind of the one Ms. Allison Walker, my mom.  She has so many great ideas and one of these days we will pull a book out of her!  Next time you connect with her ask, What Are YOU Waiting For?

What does it mean to find your piece?  Of course if we’re thinking about it in terms of a puzzle it would seem your piece is your perfect fit, your niche in the marketplace.  Some people have an answer from a very young age to that old question, what do you want to be when you grow up?  I remember my mom telling me I could be anything I wanted, I could be a lawyer, doctor, or Indian Chief (not sure how the latter would have worked exactly but hey 🙂 ) as long as I was willing to put my mind to it.  Do you know anyone like that?  Have you held true to your answer from years ago?  During this year’s NBA Slam Dunk Contest there were profile videos on each contestant.  Zach LaVine, this year’s winner, stated in his video that at the age of 2 he watched the movie Space Jam featuring His Airness, Michael Jordan, and from that point on knew he wanted to play basketball.  Zach LaVine is now a professional basketball player.  Often you hear people who went on to become singers, actors/actresses, police officers, fire fighters, teachers, and a host of other professions say they knew from as far back as they can remember their now chosen profession was what they wanted to do.  In most instances these people have found their passion which has led to their piece of the puzzle ultimately leading to their peace of mind.  I’d be willing to bet not one would say they do it FOR the money.  Obviously they don’t send the money back, it enables them to provide a life for their families.  But they found their passion first, mastered it, and then financially capitalized on it.

You may be thinking you haven’t found your passion or your piece and the search for your peace of mind continues onward.  I love what the late, great Jim Rohn has to say, “If you don’t like how things are, change it!  You’re not a tree.”  He goes on further to describe how a tree does not possess the ability to grow one way for years and then decide to pick up its roots and move to grow in another direction.  As humans, we are the only species which has the God-given ability to change its station in life.  A dog remains a dog at the mercy of its pet parents.  A bird remains a bird flying south on instinct every year.  But you and I, we have the ability to set goals and go after them with reckless abandon.  We can dream unattainable dreams and bring them to life.  We can set fire to our desires and become maniacs on a mission!  We can be financially, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually impoverished today and become wealthy beyond our wildest dreams in all those areas tomorrow.  All with the simple decision to find your passion.  When you’re engaged in your passion, more often then not, it won’t feel like a chore.  You won’t have to be reminded, you will be in a peak state of flow.  In this state you are untouchable.  From here, finding your piece of the puzzle is effortless because you’re doing what you love and loving what you’re doing and discovering a euphoric peace of mind is inevitable!
