Self-Discovery Questions to Uncover Your True Passions in Life

by | Success + Mindset | 0 comments

If you’re lucky, you’ve discovered many of your passions and get to spend your time enjoying things that bring you joy and excitement. However, maybe you’ve not yet figured out what ignites your passion.

It takes time, some soul-searching, and life experience to identify your real passion.

The following prompts are created to tap into your wants, needs,  and desires. Have fun with them, and you’ll discover what you can add to your life that will fill it with joy and delight.

1. What’s the one thing I’ve always wanted to do?

What’s the one thing that would need to happen for you to carry through with this wish? Make a plan and get started to make it a reality.

2. If I could spend today doing whatever I want, what would it be?

Be creative and let your mind go. Maybe it’s something related to your work, home, or an interest.

3. Where do I really want to live?

4. What city and what type of residence?

Maybe you’re already fulfilling this passion, and you do live in your real first choice. If not, what is the possibility of moving to a home you’ll love?

5. Where do I want to visit?

Have you been thinking of a visit to Washington, D.C., San Francisco or Paris, France? The streets of Rio de Janeiro may be calling your name or even the Grand Canyon. How can you make it a reality?

6. What is it I talk about doing but never actually do?

In the past, you have said something like, “For the last 10 years, I’ve really wanted to take a Mediterranean cruise.”

7. What are the reasons I don’t go after my dreams?

Explore within yourself why you haven’t gone after the life you want. Can you do something different to help bring your goals to reality?

8. How will I finish the sentence, “More than anything, before I die, I really want to ___________?”

Say it out loud to yourself and fill in the blank. Now is the time to figure out a way to accomplish your goal.

9. What things in my life that I would like to rid myself of?

If you’re discovering you don’t like things about your life, it’s time to do some “housecleaning.” Make a list of the things you’d want to change about your life.

10. If I were to make just one massive change in my life right now to make my life even better, what would it be?

The answer to this question will open up the possibilities in your life. Moving to a new city might change up your life. Getting more education might be a goal of yours—what can you do today to move it into action?

11. Which people in my life inspire me and why?

It’s important to know who encourages you so you can spend more time with people like them. What is it about them that inspires you so much? Take every step to be inspired and motivated more often.

You will be more fulfilled and happier when you chase your dreams. So decide today to make a change.

12. How do I feel when I really try to accomplish my goals?

Notice how you feel. You’ll want to do what makes you feel like this more often.

13. How do I feel when I achieve a life goal?

Notice these feelings too.

14. What do I find is missing from my life?

Answering this question may require some considerable soul-searching.  Don’t give up on it, and be honest with yourself. Just because something is missing in your life doesn’t mean you have failed, it just gives you room to grow and make things even better.

15. Who are the biggest supporters of my life?

It’s good to know the people that will stand by you and help you pursue your passions and reach your goals, no matter what. Who gets in the way of me reaching my goals? To find your real passion, you may be required to disengage from people who wish to block your efforts.

If you take the time to think on each of these questions thoroughly, you’ll be pleased with what you discover.

Your true passions are inside you, just waiting to be let loose to bring you excitement, joy, and fulfillment.

Here’s to creating the life you LOVE!
