Birds know what to do when the seasons change.
Animals live on instinct, but they are also connected to something bigger than themselves.
And if you look at anything in nature, the same is true.
A tree somehow knows how to be a tree. It knows when to shed its leaves and when not to.
But what about human beings?
Do you see yourself as a part of nature? We often believe we’re excluded, but we aren’t. We are made of stardust. We are inherently a part of our planet, our universe, and our galaxy.
You have an inner GPS waiting to guide you. And your life is heading in the direction it is supposed to be heading in whether you want it or not.
This is not about trying to control life. It’s about letting life unfold and listening to that whisper inside you.
Because that whisper is what will help you live a passionate, fulfilling and meaningful life.
You Already Have What You Need
Just like a bird knows what to do to live life, so do you know what to do, but you have to be willing to listen.
You have to let go of wanting to figure life out.
It seems counter-intuitive, but in order to live the life you want, you have to be willing to let go of the ideas you have around it. You have to put on a new pair of sunglasses.
People who can’t find their passion often believe they have to find something they don’t have.
But in reality, you already have passion in your life. You already feel fulfilled sometimes. The key is to focus in on that.
And That Brings Us to the “Secret”
The secret is to look inside instead of outside.
Stop asking people for permission to do what feels best for you and just do it.
When I say look inside, I’m talking about noticing what you’re interested in, excited about, what makes you fulfilled and what fills you with purpose.
The way you follow your inner GPS will be different from me. I mainly feel my way through life.
For example, we just bought a house, and it was both stressful and fascinating.
Each time we went to see a new house, I took in what I could, but I never made a quick decision. I slept on the house (not literally, of course), and sometimes I did so for several weeks.
As the weeks passed, a feeling would start to emerge. I would start to feel “yes” or “no.”
Then suddenly a house came a long and it felt right. Everything just happened. I found myself making a bid, and it was accepted.
This doesn’t mean I was fearless. Buying a house is a big, scary decision for most, and it was for me, too. But I listened to my GPS, and I let what needed to happen happen.
Stop Looking, And Start Living
People who trust themselves are happier, more fulfilled, and often more successful.
They know that what ultimately matters is what works for them, and how they feel. When you think you have to follow someone else’s rules, you end up feeling confused, frustrated and lost.
That’s why I keep pointing you back to yourself. You are here to live your life, not someone else’s.
One day you will die. You might even die this week. So make the most out of what you have right now.
I’m not going to lie.
This can be scary. Often brutal. It feels like nothing makes sense. But that’s a sign that you’re jumping out of your comfort zone and doing something you’ve never done before.
You’re going after the life you know you deserve.
And that’s what my upcoming book is all about.
My book, Find Your Passion: 25 Questions You Must Ask Yourself, is about 25 powerful questions that help you turn up the passion, meaning and purpose in your life.
Because when you truly look at things, you realize that this isn’t about finding your passion, but about expanding the passion that’s already there.
My New Book is Out Now

The bottom line is that when you start listening to yourself, everything changes.
There’s no one you have to be. There’s nothing you have to do, except let life happen.
