Choose to Embrace Your Life w/Passion

by Olga Hermans


Last weekend I made one of those quality choices to go to a business conference and met with a great group of people. This was a very different experience for me because I had met all these people online already. The reason we all met online because we all have the same coach and her name is Sandi Krakowski.

There might have been up to a 80/90 people in the group; everybody came from different backgrounds, some from very painful backgrounds like my friend Elise who’s testimony you can hear on the Dr.Carol Show.

There was a female doctor in the room, a nurse who works in a psychiatric hospital, work at home mommies and even my daughter was there. Everybody was eager to learn and to move up to a higher level  in their personal life or in their business.

Sandi Krakowski is my sister in Christ and my coach in business; she is one the most passionate people I have ever met. Her passion is people; to help people go further in their life that they could have ever dreamed about. Her question to us was: “What would happen with your life you if you started to believe more and fear less?” Can you answer that question for yourself?

Let me give you a great quote from Steve D’Annunzio: “Fear-driven people constantly fight, desire-driven people constantly want, pride-driven people constantly manipulate, mission-driven people constantly learn and teach, love-driven people constantly serve and enlighten…it’s always your/my choice”, what is your drive?

When was the last time you made a life-changing choice? I like to encourage you to make the choice to embrace your life with passion. When was the last time you took a minute to think about why you do what you do? Are you doing what you do with eagerness and dedication?
It is sad to say but most people never stop long enough to ask themselves why they are doing what they are doing, but it is one of God’s main concerns. Actually He is not impressed by what we do, but rather He is interested in “why” we do it.

It is possible to know your life’s purpose and spend your life doing it with a wrong motive in your heart. I learned this weekend from Sandi that when we listen to what people are looking for and serve them in every way possible; our needs in life would be met far beyond what we can think or can ever imagine.

If you want to live your life to be important, well thought of and admired, seeking to find your worth in what you do, you find out that things will not be working well in your life. You will be frustrated most of the time and you have no peace or joy. You can come to the realization that your heart is wrong and that you need to make a decision to live for God and His Glory, not for yourself and your glory. It is possible to change our motive by simply making a decision, but we first must know what our motives and purposes are.

This requires some deep soul searching few people take time to do. Quite often we are afraid to really know ourselves. It is a brave person who faces truth about himself and does whatever is necessary to line up with God’s will. I dare you to be bold enough to honestly examine your motives and be willing to do nothing if you cannot do something for right reasons.

Pj McClure was our mc and kept things running; he told everybody up front that you cannot grow your business without knowing first yourself. So, what you are passionate about will create an income for you.

One of the best things you can do for knowing your purpose in life is to sit down and take the time to think about why you do what you do. The more we understand what our true motives are, the better we can work and make sure that our purpose is in line with God. Ask yourself questions and write your answers down in a notebook or a journal so you can come back and read them again. Ask God to fine-tune your motives as well.

Here are 3 questions that you could ask yourself?
1. What are thinking about doing for people and what do you hope to get out of it?
2. When you talk to other people about what you are doing, are you secretly hoping they will admire you?
3. Do you pray first and then make plans, or plan first and the pray that your plans will work out?

It is so very important to know and understand what moves you to do and learn the “why” behind your what. Your passion will lead you to your destiny in many ways. Once you know why you do what you want to do, you will be able to embrace your life with passion. God is not boring. Most people scratch their heads when you place passion and God in the same sentence. If you don’t believe that, look at yourself; He made YOU with a great passion in your heart to see everything that He placed on the inside of you come to fruition. That is what I call “PASSION”.
