Has anyone read the new book by the Attwoods, "The Passion Test," yet?
I just picked it up this weekend and did the 'test' and had a lot of fun with it. The book is a skillfully conglomerated mishmash of a lot of the things you and I talk about around here; the 'test' is just a formalized way of boiling down your passions and giving them "Intention, Attention, and No Tension." (LoA, in other words!)
"Passions" here is not the same as "goals" -- that is, how you live your life, not things or actions you choose to create in your life.
I found it to be a fun and inspiring way of focusing on and generating what I really, really want, and that's something I've been resisting lately so I'm glad to have this primer taking me by the hand. There are bunch of interviews and "tips" from many successful PD people whose work I have enjoyed, and you also receive access to a boatload of "free gifts" (audio recordings, interviews, I don't know what-all-else); I haven't checked those out yet.
You are coached to narrow it down to 5 passions, but I have 7 and I'm stickin' to 'em. I would love to hear what others come up with!
When my life is ideal, I am…
Glowing with vitality, strength, suppleness and well-being such that others feel better just being with me.
Living and working joyfully in my clean, gorgeous, flowing home overlooking the ocean.
Connecting with and generating a space of freedom for everyone.
Making love with Danger Man all the time. (note to pavlinians: "making love" is not the same as "having sex" in this context, but it does include it!)
Coaching and Celebrating breakthroughs for myself and scads of other people.
Writing and speaking material that moves, inspires, and amuses masses of people.
THIS, OR SOMETHING BETTER!
