Finding Your Passion – Poker Power

Finding Your Passion – Poker Power

Think back to simpler times when all we worried about were recess rules and multiplication tables. When lunchables were king (or queen) and the final school bell felt like the best part of the day. And when we were asked what we wanted to be, our response always started with, “when I grow up…” Well, most of us grownups are all grown up and yet, we’re still awaiting that aha moment to figure out what our calling is.

 

The Japanese believe the answer exists within a Venn diagram known simply as Ikigai. The central theme is purpose and finding it is relational to passion, mission, profession, and vocation.

 

 

 

 

 

When we’re able to piece these fundamental concepts together, the picture becomes clear and the path to passion is paved. Seems simple, doesn’t it? Take the time to familiarize yourself with how these four major concepts can be broken down. Make a list and unearth what blockers have been keeping you from fulfillment.

Passion

What do you love to do? 

Profession

What can you be paid for and still enjoy the work?

Vocation

What are your skills and how can you use them?

Mission

What does the world need and how can you support this?
