I got an epiphany this morning.

Often times, I am half-way into my morning rituals before my wake-up alarm goes off and I'm usually like, "if I beat my alarm clock at waking me up then I probably do not need one." No. I don't do away with my morning alarm. I just let it be so it helps me keep track of time.

That aside, this is the epiphany that hits me this morning: I have come to the conclusion that when we do not have the zeal to jump out of bed in the morning with a burning desire to do things it is most likely because we do not have enough goals or simply that our passion is not yet obvious to us—we are yet to discover your passion.

One thing about passion is that it can't be taught. We either have it or we don't. We either discover we have passion for a skill or profession or we discover we don't. The good news is we can always cultivate little passion to great passion if we want to.

Sometimes, the problem isn't laziness or lack of ambition but simply passion or a lack of it.

Just as passion is vital to achieve set goals, it might sound funny but passion is also essential for other little things such as having the zeal to get out of bed and start the day.

Truly, no alarm clock is needed if your passion wakes you up.

I'm looking forward to discussing more about my passion (what it is, how I discovered it, what I'm doing about it...) and I'm also looking forward to discussing with others about theirs, to see where we can synergise.

Great news, I have kicked off my 10min FREE focus session consultation (for people who care about using digital tools to achieve their goals) at http://www.alexasomba.com

Good morning morning people. Have an amazing day ahead guys.

There are just those events that I get taught what I thought I knew or am supposed to know and at the end of it all I realise I really don't know that much. The experience is both exhilarating and humbling. Especially exhilarating. 😑😁 Lifelong learning ca...

Those with pure love do all they can to let their mates grow in every way. Detached love means to let others exist without forcing our will upon them. That is spiritual love.
