What is Your True Motivation? - Ask Yourself, What You Really Love to Do, and Find A Way to Do It. πŸ’“



During the crisis, many of us became survival-oriented and might have done things like panic-buying toilet paper and foods. πŸ˜…πŸ˜† Or, (after doing all that), some of us may be forced to be awakened with some urge to be the service of others. Everyone was facing difficulties at that time, but we were not the only one suffering. πŸ˜₯πŸ’ͺπŸ˜„


We all have different talents and abilities to contribute to the world. Some are already doing what they love. But since this crisis began, it seems to me that we are now forced to rethink and reevaluate the meaning of what we do. For some, they may decide not to continue doing what they are doing, so quit their jobs or get a divorce. For others, they continue to do what they do but with different motivation.

For example, I am a therapist. I believe this pandemic has made everyone aware of the importance of their own health, as well as emotional, physical and mental well-being (also the current health care system). The need for healing is as urgent as food and other essentials. I have become more convinced that I am in the position to serve this need to others, and have the right skills to do so. ✨πŸ’ͺ

Now I am motived to heal myself as well as help others heal at a much deeper level so that we can live our life with our full potential. And this has become my strongest passion. ❀️πŸ”₯

By helping people heal, these healed individuals, who each has different and unique skills and talents, will contribute to the world in their own way. Because when our health improves, and we are healed physically mentally and emotionally, we naturally want to do good things to ourselves, as well as to others and to the world.

The more of us are healed, the more positive and happy people there will be; thus, the world becomes a better place. Over-simplified but something like that. 🌏 πŸ˜‚βœŒοΈ

It is impossible I alone can change the world. What only one person can do is small but can have a ripple effect by healing small numbers of people, and those people will affect positively around their world, and they may really change the world, who knows? πŸ€”πŸ˜

To live a life with passion and feeling of truly being alive, we need to be clear on what we really want to do without lying to ourselves. We must find a way to serve others to make the world a better place by doing what we love. Not by doing something that makes you look better, makes your parents happy and proud, or gives you more financial security or status, etc. In a new world which has just started, you cannot afford to live your life with a lie. You need to really tune into yourself and find what truly motivates you and what makes you happy and love yourself.

πŸ’“ So, ask yourself, at the bottom of your heart, what you really love to do, and find a way to do it. Just try and see what happens. πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜
