Where are you working? Is it the “place” where you want and are meant to be? With the year ending, take some time to answer these questions. If the place you are in now is not working for you, make some intentions to change that. You do your best when you are happy and fulfilled.

Many people have told me that the concept of “finding your passion” stops them in their tracks. It seems so big and they are not sure how to get there.
Finding your passion starts with your intent to be happy in your work and life. If you follow what makes you happy, you will have a great compass to guide you. It is a step-by-step journey of uncovering clues as you go along. The only thing that can sabotage you is giving up.
If you have not yet found your passion, make your happiness and fulfillment a priority. Commit not to being miserable in your life or work. And, be willing to change. You may have to go out of your comfort zone and it may take some time – it’s worth it.

When you think of your workday, do you think “same old, same old”? If the answer is yes, change that right away. With all the time, effort and talent you give to your work, vitality and interest in doing it are essential. Your employer holds that obligation, too. Where is it mandated that you have to put up with boredom, lack of enthusiasm or stagnation in your work? Nowhere. Your job should be amazing.
