The Passion Test

Whenever you are faced with a choice, decision or opportunity, choose in favour of your passions. Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood, The Passion Test
 Wow!  I am a woman of many words, but this morning, my heart is overflowing and the words  to describe the feelings coursing through my body escape me. I breathe.

Bliss. Blessed. Bountiful.

Yummy.

Bliss Blessed and Bountiful.

It is a simple test -- it is not a test you can fail, or get wrong, or make a mistake on. The Passion Test.  Where Choices helped me clarify my purpose, The Passion Test is the tool to clarify my passions so that I can live my life on purpose.

It is all about clarity -- A statement I heard continuously throughout the past three days was, When you are clear, what you want will show up in your life, but only to the extent you are clear.

What I want will appear -- but only to the extent I am clear.

It was an interesting thought -- I am clear, really, well, almost, oh, ok, sort of. 

Reality was, I was not clear. I had not investigated what my passions truly are to hone them down to a list I can clearly see and claim. I had not written my 5 top passions down. I had not kept my attention on my passions.

Intention. Attention. No Tension.

Consciously create the intention to focus on my passions.

Keep my attention on my passions.

Let go. Don't focus on the 'how', focus on the WHAT. What do I want. What is my next step -- right now.

As Brian Willis of Winning Mind Training suggests -- ask myself my W.I.N.  What's important now?  Right now. Not tomorrow, or next year or next week. Right now.

It was a glorious three days. Amazing people. Congruent. Filled with integrity. Love. Joy.

It was a time for expansion. For opening up to the possibilities of my life when I let go of fear and joyously claim my passions. My right to live this one wild and precious life fearlessly in love.

One of the things I found amazingly powerful was that I had taken the test in the book, The Passion Test and identified my top five. As I took the test on the first day of the workshop, I clarified even more deeply what they truly are. Having someone guide me through the process opened me up to investigating deeper what it is that inspires me through my passions.

I recommend it. Take the test. Buy the book. Find a facilitator who can guide you through it. Email me if you don't know of someone. I'm sure I can find a name of someone in your area. You can do it online at The Passion Test. An outcome from this weekend was I received my Facilitator's certificate to give the test, so I can guide you through it too.

It's worth it. You're worth it.

The question is:  Are you clear on what you want in your life? Are you focusing your attention on creating more of what you want, more of what works?
