Amazing man ! Where can I learn more about your story ? I had a knee injury too (not as bad as yours), years ago and it still kind of hurt. I suspect that there is some psychological issue behind it !

Hi there,

Thank you for posting your video and sharing your story. What you said very much resonated with me. I had a similar experience with burnout at work. I am a big “believer” in treatments that heal the roots of diseases as opposed to the symptoms. Two of my favorite self-healing method is TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and Tam Healing (created by Tom Tam). Meditation has helped me tremendously as well! Do you also have a favorite self-healing method?

Ok, nice, Lisa May! Traveling is certainly one of my favorite things in the world. In fact, my journey of personal development really began as a result of three life-changing trips. I can tell you all about them later. But awesome – keep traveling and publishing 🙂

Hi Lisa-May,

Thanks for sharing your passion and your insights about traveling! I myself love traveling as well but haven’t had the chance to do much of it lately except for going back to my home country (France) every few years. I don’t know if you’d be willing to share how traveling around the world impacted you the most as far as your world view is concerned?

Hello Paddy. It’s nice to know you have pretty much the same interests and passion as myself. I’ve had to deal with some serious health challenges in the past and overcame them without drugs or surgery. In fact, my journey of self-development began with a personal injury. Anyway, never heard of bulletproof program – wonder what that’s about. And awesome to connect with you.

Hi everyone, here is my passion video. Was a tough choice but wanted to just get one online. Chose fitness, but could have equally been cooking, discussing ideas, personal development or music.

Surfing – my passion video. –

Hi Ian – surfing certainly sounds cool (I’ve only done it once on a beginner’s course in Biarritz France and enjoyed it). If you didn’t have to worry about time, money, resources or anything else would you surf all the time if so, where? Did you turn surfing into your career or vocation – or are you planning on doing this?

Hey Ian, great passion and I really feel you! My number one sport is snowboarding, but surfing is definitely up there too. I’ve been doing it for 4 years.
Where abouts in Japan do you live? How’s the surf there? What would you compare it to in the world?
Btw, Japan is more than amazing for snowboarding too, you should try that if you haven’t yet 🙂

Hi Ian, tried surfing for the first time last year in Portugal. It was a lot of fun. And girls in bikinis is definitely a big bonus 😉

Good points, in a similar position myself. I think real fulfillment in life does come from finding your passion and gift and going after it. Certainly is tough to decide on it and go after though.

Hey Neil, good stuff, man. It took me many years to figure out what I should be doing, Andy I’m still in the process, too. Looking back, it was the pain that has been the greatest teacher, and when I could overcome it, that gave me clues to my passion. In my case – self-healing and overcoming all kinds of health problems. Also, getting out of difficult situations, in general. Thanks to sharing, man.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for sharing your video about your passion. First time you’ve recorded yourself? It didn’t show!
From what you said, it seems you’re still looking for your passion or it has been a long process for you to find it. Is Personal Development your passion or the method you’ve used to find your passion or both?
Personal development or self-actualization is my passion as well! It has been a long but fascinating and exciting journey for me…a journey that never really ends. 🙂
Hope you can get more sleep!

Chiara, you have some awesome passions. I myself took up piano lessons when I was 21 – for the first time. I have a whole story about that. And cooking and food – yes, definitely a passion (especially eating). I can see you combining some of the passions you mention. Good stuff!

riskthings

Hi Adam. Nice video, well articulated. I found your comment on the difference between loving what you do and having a passion interesting (and made me think). In the past 2-3 years have been struggling with that. It’s one thing to be professional, do excellent work each day (we are what we repeatedly do as Aristotle once said), but I have also found that if you continue on a professional path, it starts to feel empty without a larger purpose (been a management consultant for 12-13 years). Just sharing my own experience.

Nice video Adam, it helped me to think about what I love and my passions. Also I watched the TED talk you recommended, very thought provoking. I shall keep a look out for future vids you post….keep searhing till your real passion manifests, take care for now…Peace!

Here is my first video for Create & Connect, Week 1 – I joined the London Real Academy because I believe Virtual Reality is going to change the world. As a full time 3D artist, I intend to do everything I can to be a part of that. Also – for some reason I can’t get the video embed code to work so here is a link instead. My apologies for the jump to YouTube.

Hi Charlene, cool video! I’m one of the community managers here, we just fixed your video so it will now appear here too, hope that’s ok. The links seem to need to be on their own separate line for them show up on this thread. Thanks!

Thank you, Nick! I really appreciate that. I was embarrassed I couldn’t make it work that way. Glad it is now. I will remember the separate line trick.

Hi Charlene, I’m the kind of people who is afraid of virtual reality. Maybe it is more about ignorance. I think our society is already virtual, and people are too disconnect from each other. I would prefer re-create real and honest communication and physical contact rather than virtual reality. But my eyes are not yours and I’ m curious to see more. Nice to have you here.

Charlene Eaton
Member

Hi Pierre, It is nice to meet you. I love that you were honest in sharing your fear of virtual reality. Thank you for doing that. I appreciate the honesty and respectfulness. I am so passionate about this that I am concerned my reply in text format would be so long and full of too many words. I want to reply to you in kind but I want to do it justice. I will make a new video for you and also for my good friends here that feel the same way. I understand completely. I’ll post tomorrow! I’m looking… Read more »

Most well polished video in the world. Love the way you know what your passion is. Not only that you LOVE VR but also that you have a Mission. Cool passion. Very envious

Great video. What are you most excited about virtual reality allowing us to do that will change the world for the better? Similarly, what do you think some of the risks are (I share some of the trepidations about people becoming even more disconnected)?
