The Reasons People Don’t Follow Their Passions, and What You Can Do

The Reasons People Don’t Follow Their Passions, and What You Can Do | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

It's pretty hard to pursue something you aren't sure about. If you can't seem to find something you'd love doing, you're not alone. Many of us struggle with what our own ideas of what a "dream job" would be. If you feel a little like you're just floating along the river of life, it might be a good idea to grab a paddle and start exploring uncharted waters. Take a step out of your comfort zone and experience new things. When you're stuck in your bubble, you're afraid of being uncomfortable. Branch out and see what's out there. Eventually you'll encounter something that gets you excited.

Pursuing your passion can mean different things to different people, but no matter your definition, it seems people always have a reason why they can't do it. If you're someone who has always wanted to follow your dream but never gained any traction, here are some answers.

Je vous recommande la vidéo de Larry Smith (TED) qui a aussi le mérite d'être aussi drôle qu'enrichissante.

How To Handle The Most Awkward Situations

How To Handle The Most Awkward Situations | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Accidentally insulting someone.

If you’ve ever sent a text or email to the wrong person that included a less than positive opinion of the person who just received it, you know the definition of awkward. While you probably regret the mistake, you should take it as an opportunity to discuss the thing that was bothering you.

 

Don’t make up an excuse or try to backtrack; a candid conversation will lead to forgiveness much faster than a bunch of BS, says Dachis. But apologize only if you care. “If you don’t like someone, don’t waste your time trying to make things better,” says Dachis. “Use the mistake to get rid of someone you never wanted in your life.”

Why Time Seems To Speed Up As We Get Older

Why Time Seems To Speed Up As We Get Older | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

When you encounter the familiar, time seems to constrict and when you acquire new knowledge, it expands. Neuroscientist David Eagleman explains:


Time is this rubbery thing … It stretches out when you really turn your brain resources on, and when you say, “Oh, I got this, everything is as expected,” it shrinks up.


That relationship between time’s elasticity and whether your brain is processing new information gets at why time seems to turn up the tempo as we age. As the world starts to become more familiar, we learn less and sometimes even seek information and experiences that fit within what we already know. There’s less adventure, play, exploration, creativity, and wonder to invite and engage with newness.

Look for new challenges and experiences to slow down time.

One unnerving aspect of getting older is how life seems to start speeding up. Feeling that whoosh as time rushes past you can be disheartening as you wonder where the days, or months, or even years go.
