How do you Find What you Love?

American Singer and Songwriter Marc Anthony once said, "If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life." I think he's right. 

I also think it's not so easy to find what you love... unless you pay attention. I recently ran across this YouTube video that gives some great points to consider as you set out to learn that for yourself.

Questions for Discovery

Here are some questions to ponder that might help you discover those things you love: 

What lights you up? 

What do you yearn to do? 

What are you good at that you'd love to do more of? 

Where do others notice and compliment you? 

What do you learn quickly and effortlessly? 

Talent Assessment

Another favorite resources is the CliftonStrengths assessment. The results tell us how you are innately talented. These talents are natural patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that have been present in you since you were very young. You've grown stronger in using them over time and they drive your behavior -- often without you even being aware. 

Awareness is Key

Knowing yourself, how you're gifted, and where you want to give and serve will bring about awareness of what you love and where you operate best. Using your CliftonStrengths talents and developing them with intention will give you energy and bring you joy, satisfaction and happiness. 

Find what you Love

If you've got a gap in your life where you're doing things that you don't love, then set on a journey of discovery. Take note of what's working in your life and what's not. Reflect on what you do best and what gives you energy. Find what you love and do more of that. The whole world will be better for it.
