Often, after speaking to people about following their God-given passion, someone will come to me and ask, “How do I find out what I am passionate about?” This question breaks my heart. It hurts me to know there are so many who do not live passionate lives. However, it also means they are beginning to think about their passion. If this is you, then the following coaching questions can help you begin that journey!
- What do I talk about the most?
Matthew 12:34 says, “out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks” (NIV). What you talk about the most is a good indication of what your passion is.
- Who do I care about the most?
What group of people do you think about helping the most? Who do you feel you can most influence in a positive way?
- What need or cause breaks your heart?
It may be a hint as to what you are passionate about when you hear about a need or cause in the world that stirs up strong emotion inside of you.
- What do I dream about?
If you had all the resources and knew you could not fail, what is one thing you would do with your life? When you think about how things could be better, what are you specifically thinking about?
- What did you want to do when you were a child?
Often times we lose sight of our dreams and passions somewhere between childhood and adulthood. Some people lose them early on and others do not lose them until they get out on their own and the world steals, kills, and destroys their passions. Those passions you had as a child may very well be the passions God wants you to have today.
If you would like to investigate further into your passion after you have answered these questions, please get in touch with me. Even if you just do one free coaching session, it could help you in discovering your God-given passion. If you do not follow your God-given passion, something very important will not happen.
