Having passion for your goals is not always something easy to muster. However, it’s been proven that we all have passions in our lives so how can we then find ways to increase the passion levels for our goals? First I want to ensure we have the same understanding of passion. I have developed an acronym for passion that I share with my clients that I would like to share with you now: 


P- Purposeful
A- Attention
S- Successfully
I – Intended
O-Outcome based
N- Noted
Here is the expanded version:
Purpose – goals should have a purpose. They should take you closer to your life purpose? Does this goal help you fulfill your destiny?

Attention – much attention should be given to goals. Do you give attention to your goals? Do you reflect on them/it daily and take actions that will consistently take you closer to their achievement?

Success – Are you beginning to feel successful? Are there subsidiary goals you can achieve that will allow you to experience and maintain a successful outlook as you work towards your goals? How do you plan on celebrating the small milestones on your way to your greater goals?

Stated – have you stated your goals out loud to yourself or to someone else? Sharing your goals on our blog will serve to engage the brain and the power of intention. This will also help you affirm yourself and the value of your goals.
Intended – when we focus our attention, we begin to harness the power of intention, which forces the brain to produce thoughts, ideas and solutions that are in keeping with our intentions. Do you hold successful attainment of your goal as your intention?
Outcome Based – is the outcome of this goal very clear, can you see the outcome and its benefit to your life or to others? If it is to lose 20lbs can you see yourself 20lbs lighter and all that comes with the weight loss?
Noted – when we write things down it engages the brain on a different level and helps to anchor our learning on a deeper and more fully. In this case you will be tapping into the entire universe to achieve your goals.
So take some time to assess your goals for one or all of the criterias above and ask yourself the following questions?
Am I grateful to have these things in my life?
What will my life be like when I am fully engaged in my purpose?
Am I blessed to have this opportunity to achieve something?
If that does not help then attend our Passion Test Workshop on October 15th at 6:30 pm, here at the Centre, to learn more about tapping into your passions!

I would love to hear about your process of finding passion for your goals.
