Probably when you were younger, you were passionate about many things in your life.

But somehow as the years have gone by, you've lost those interests - perhaps you've even become disinterested in life itself?

Every day just seems boring and lifeless.

So how can you rekindle your earlier passions?


Firstly, a quote from The Master Key System book, Part 18:

The incentive of attention is interest; the greater the interest, the greater the attention; the greater the attention, the greater the interest, action and reaction; begin by paying attention; before long you will have aroused interest; this interest will attract more attention, and this attention will produce more interest, and so on. This practice will enable you to cultivate the power of attention.

Notice that this implies that to generate interest in anything, just start by paying attention and the interest will follow.

Start small

So start by choosing something you have a bit, even a tiny bit, of passion or joy about and play with that subject until you have reached a feeling of (as near as you can) excitement and joy.

Once you've managed to reach that state, relax and see what ideas come to mind.

Now write down those ideas!

Those ideas that come to you when you are in a state of passion and excitement are ones that, if you follow them, will lead you even further into that state - and will also bring into your life many other things you are seeking which you may not be able to articulate yet.

In other words, use existing passion to springboard yourself into more passion.

This is a really important principle which I use a lot myself...get into a state of being before doing, and let that state of being inspire your doing.

Actions and ideas that are inspired to you while you are in a good/passionate-feeling place will serve you well.

And, watch out for the opposite...actions and ideas that are inspired to you while you are feeling bad will, in time, turn out to be poor choices.
