People have been nudging me to share my story, and I was reluctant. However, it actually is a good example of the things I talk about all the time – passion & purpose – and so I thought it can’t hurt to try.
Your mission is to learn 3 steps to creating a life of passion and purpose.

Task 1: Create your vision
In my case, I created my vision according to my passions, and since I’m a multi-passionate, this involved sorting through a lot of different things. Here’s what I did:
- Wrote down my passions
- Wrote down how I would pursue them
- Estimated the time needed per week
- Wrote down my vision as a perfect “day in the life”
Task 2: Align your life with your passion and purpose vision
We often fail to plan for the long term, and it’s easy to see why: Something (such as a pandemic…) can happen and ruin all your plans. But it’s still important to have that vision, because only then can you actively work on aligning yourself with it.
I filmed an entire episode on alignment and it includes a list of values, which I recommend you download. It’s important because too many people actively pursue dreams that are completely out of alignment with either their values or their chosen lifestyle.
Task 3: Ask yourself what you can do without
This is probably the trickiest bit. We can “have it all” in terms of your dreams, but we can’t possibly fit all the possible worthy choices and paths in life into one lifetime. That’s why it’s so important to chose something that’s in alignment – and equally important to know what you can do without.
In my case, this was:
- A conventional relationship and family.
Your task is to find out what these things are in your life, and make a conscious decision about them.
