Truth or dare: Can you plan your passion? Predict your purpose?
Well, for those of you who dare to answer, there are a number of important additional questions you first need to ask yourself. These include questions about your wants and likes, your personality, your comfort zone, your strengths, your weaknesses and more.
But it’s not just about asking these questions. More importantly, it’s about how truthful you are in answering them.
You see, it is not uncommon for individuals to avoid or dance around the truth, especially when it is staring back at us in the mirror. Truth can often be discouraging, painful or uncomfortable. (Think Jack Nicholson as the military tyrant in the courtroom scene of the 1992 film A Few Good Men shouting at Tom Cruise, “You can’t handle the truth!”)
Still, for a true chance at success, we owe it to ourselves to see ourselves as we really are. For if we are less than truthful, we’ll never be able to properly gauge our own wants, talents, propensities, strengths and weaknesses. Moreover, we won’t be able to accurately pinpoint our passion and purpose or how to best realize them.
Fortunately, there is a GamePlan in place for you to discover your true passion, purpose and career path. It comes in the form of an extraordinary series of questions that go a long way toward uncovering just what makes you happy, and what floods your life with meaning. It only takes between 15 and 20 minutes and, given its potential value, it could be the most determinative 20 minutes of your life.
Or at least a great first step. The goal is to identify your unique skills and characteristics and match them with a career path ideally suited to your personality.
And as you plan your passion and predict your purpose, know that you are now among those unique individuals who dare to discover their life’s true path.
