What would be the most magnificent thing you’d want to experience in the next two years?
Now, identify your top three passions. They can exist in your personal or business life. These passions make you incredibly happy or fulfilled when you focus on them.
Now imagine living out each of those passions to their max. Allow your imagination to go to the wildest and most joyful extremes when thinking of these passions. What would that be like?
My greatest passions are family, water skiing, teaching people to believe anything is possible and traveling.
If I lived these passions to the hilt, I envision:
Having a vacation home on a private water ski lake within driving distance from my home. It has several guest rooms for all of my family to stay as long as they desire. I have cars, boats, quads, scooters and bicycles for all to enjoy. We play, dine and connect.
I water ski almost everyday on my private lake. I have a custom boat with the world’s smallest wake. I have several pro drivers who tow me perfectly. I also have a coach and can nail a water ski course like a pro. I have a dry suit that keeps me toasty on chilly days and keeps me on the water year round.
My coaching business keeps me jetting around the globe to be with my perfect clients for private VIP sessions and group retreats with business owners and teams. I fly first class and my family joins me often to explore the land after my coaching is complete. I take several months off each year to go on extreme adventures with my family, treating them all to dream vacations.
These are just some examples and if I had more space I could write several pages of ideas on each passion. The vision above is actually part of my plan and has been my focus for many years.
I recently saw This Is It, the new Michael Jackson movie. I left the theatre inspired about how FULLY he lived his passion. His most recent focus was to give the GREATEST CONCERT…EVER. I believe he would’ve done exactly that had he lived to do it.
Michael is also a great example of a person with some hefty issues (contrast) in his life and yet he still made a huge positive impact on billions of people. He did everything top-notch and accepted nothing less then the very best he could give. He let his passion drive his creativity and then said YES to every vision.
I'm going to embrace that model of living at a new level. I think it breeds joy and fulfillment. It will also put me in a state of flow that will allow me to play bigger, and with less bumps in the journey.
Passion UP, baby!
