Passions vs. Values

how to align your passions with God's original blueprint for your life

Do you feel like your vision has a sense of contribution on a grand scale to the world? Do you sometimes feel like there is a battle between what you want to do, and what God wants you to do?

When I began making the transition from Corporate IT to Professional Coaching, Training, and Mentoring, this video by Lance Wallnau was one of the first training’s that I watched at it made a huge impact on me.

Now a defining question:
Describe what a perfect day in your life would be, a day that would make you incredibly happy. (Imagine the day vividly, where you would be living, whom you are with, what you’re doing, how you earn money, how you are dressed, what you physically look like. Be very specific. Can you describe your office or home in this perfect day? Are you traveling, flying, or driving? The day should include all the elements you need to be happy.)

STOP! Take your answer to question 22 and break it down. Look at your description and list the Passions you see in this description!

How can I help you live your passion?

One of my favorite scriptures is Proverbs 25:2:

It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out.

As a Coach, I get the privilege of helping kings seek out and take action on the glorious things that God has made available for them.
