A monthly quick shot to motivate you, in less than 45 seconds, from Julie Cohen Coaching

What is your PASSION?

strong liking for or devotion to some activity, object or concept; object of desire or deep interest; love.

What it REALLY means:
doing something or believing in something that matters to you; making choices based on something that energizes you and excites you; one of the reasons you enjoy getting up in the morning and doing what you do.

Incorporating PASSION into your life and work feels good. Excitement replaces drudgery; Meaningful replaces ‘so what?’; ‘Want to’ replaces ‘should do’.

Questions that INSPIRE:
• What is your PASSION? What action, belief, vision or object excites and interests you?
• What would it feel like if this PASSION was a part of your life every day?
• How is that feeling different from now?
• What one step can you take today which will make your PASSION more a part of your life or your work?
