Passion Unlocks Prosperity

Welcome!

The articles in the "Passion Unlocks Prosperity" series, created and authored by Bob Baran, are based upon the Intentional Prosperity™ philosophy. This series contains topics which will guide you through the process of finding your passion and unleashing your genuine self.

Before you go any further you must answer this question:

Are you living the life you are supposed to be living?

Think about this question before you react. Most of us go through life doing the things we believe we are supposed to do. Like being a good responsible citizen, spouse, mother, father, etc. Yet, we have a feeling that something is missing in our lives...that too much of what we do on a day to day basis, has become routine and predictable.

Finding your passion becomes something you relegate to being a fanciful notion and not something you actively pursue. Over time however, a growing realization that you don't feel fully alive and are not living up to your full potential begins to haunt you. The need for adventure, exploration and personal growth (which is a natural part of our genetic make-up) begins to pull at you. That natural part of you which seeks new things and new experiences is no longer placated with entertainment, distractions and self-medicating activities. No matter what you do you can't ignore the growing feeling that something is missing.

You can't ignore the stark reality of your life: You're not really happy.

How do you change your life?

Many psychologists will tell you that real change only comes as the result of emotional trauma. Most people live their day to day lives on "autopilot". Then something happens which shakes the foundation of their reality and causes a serious reassessment of their lives. Only then, maybe, action is taken that causes real change.

Then there is the rest of us. We know there is something missing in our lives, but taking real action (which create life altering changes) seldom happens. We are in our "comfort zones" and it is human nature to avoid life altering changes. The reason we do this is because we are conditioned to accept our reality...and tend to reject anything which challenges it. Even thinking about it can make us feel uncomfortable.

There are one of two reasons you have found the "Passion Unlocks Prosperity" series:

1. You have come to recognize a "void" in your life that no longer can be ignored, distracted or entertained away...It's there and your awareness of it continues to grow on a day to day basis.

2. You have experienced a life changing emotional trauma which has brought you face to face with the reality that you must alter the course of your life.

However you found your way here, the "Passion Unlocks Prosperity" series was created and authored by Bob Baran, to guide you through the process of finding your passion and re-igniting the inner fire which will serve as a beacon illuminating the next great journey of your life. You will find the articles in this series were created in a manner which will give you insight into how you've unconsciously subdued and neutralized passion in your life.

Recognizing how you may be blocking passion can help to unleash it within you.

Finding your passion is an amazing journey that will show you things about yourself you never realized. Finding your passion will take you from literally being "asleep" to becoming fully awake.

There is no specific article order you must follow. I would urge you however, to read each article. Don't "cherry pick" what you think is most relevant. You will be surprised at how the information within the various topics work together to create a foundation of understanding.

Finding your passion is not a one-size-fits-all simple solution to the challenges you face in your life. It is a starting point. The beginning of a magnificent adventure which will take you to places you never knew existed.

The most exciting part of the adventure is that these places are all inside you.

They have always been there waiting for you to discover them!

-Bob Baran

The day you run out of excuses

is the day your life changes...
