Craig Johns talks about OWN Your OWN FREEDOM, the first of the 8 ways to own your OWN Influence.
OWN Your OWN FREEDOM
Find the passion, happiness & direction in your life!
Your passion can be anything in the world that challenges you, intrigues you and motivates you in life. It’s not about doing something you love so that it doesn’t feel like work, a passion is something that puts you to work.
Happiness is a feeling that occurs when you know your life is great and you just can’t help smiling. People feel happiness for different reasons, have you found your happiness or are you still in the pursuit of happiness?
If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything. What is your reason for living, your purpose in life, and as Simon Sinek says “What is your why”? If it all starts with why, then what is the direction you are taking in life?
OWN Your OWN FREEDOM
Three questions to ask yourself in OWN Your OWN FREEDOM
What makes you come alive?
What are your innate strengths?
Where do you add the greatest value?
If you are still struggling to identify your direction, there a 3 deeper questions that will bring you clarity, which are in this podcast episode.
