What’s that ‘thing’ that gets you excited?
So what IS that thing? Maybe there are a few things. Think about things that you love doing or that you are really good at. What hobbies and interests do you have that when you are involved in them, time simply passes without you noticing? What’s that ‘thing’ you do because you love it?
Which cause are you passionate about?
Ask yourself ‘What happens in the world that really upsets me?’ What is that ‘thing’ that really tears your heart out when you read or hear about it, or even see it with your own eyes? Alternatively you could ask yourself 'What really makes my heart sing?' Maybe it's orphaned children being adopted or stranded animals being rescued from a disaster. What is it that stirs up a reaction in you?
What would be your message to the world?
Imagine you are standing on a big stage in front of thousands of people. Imagine everybody really wants to hear what you have to say. Imagine that your message had the potential to make a big difference in the world. Now, what is your message?
