It’s Time to Start Living with Passion! Your Journey to Self-Discovery

Passion is not something you stumble upon one day or an idea that drops into your head while you are meditating, praying, or journaling. No, it is the exact opposite. Your passion will be revealed when you are in the process of discovering and experimenting with career options, hobbies, and interests.”

About the Book

Much more than a passive, placating self-improvement book, this inspiring gem will genuinely change a reader’s life for the better. The first section of this book is filled with an honest and inspiring account of the author’s struggles to find passion and purpose. The second section is the reader’s very own personal workbook, designed to help them increase their self-awareness, clarify where they are in life right now, and discover how they can combine their talents, skills, and curiosity while building a life they love.

Solutions for Those Who Desire More Meaning & Purpose

When it comes to our careers and our lifestyle choices, too often we are swayed in directions that are not aligned with our passions because we fear other people will react with judgment or criticism. This book challenges the reader to follow what truly resonates with them. Jean Paul encourages everyone to follow their hearts, believe in themselves, and create their dream lives.                                                                                                                               

A True Resource for Those Who Are Seeking Something Different

This book is an ideal resource for anyone who is feeling stuck, burned out, or frustrated about their lives or careers. It is also intended for those who are about to embark on a career change, those with prospects for a new business venture, those seeking better work-life balance, and even those who want to pursue a personal, non-work-related goal.

When we reach our lowest point we are often open to the greatest change and exposed to our greatest passion. I found this book absolutely riveting such honest words of wisdom are truly hard to come by in modern literature.

This book is such an amazing read. I’ve been feeling a bit down lately and a friend recommended this to me. I was amazed at how much I was moved after reading it. The way Jean Paul effortlessly conveys the message allows you to really feel what the book is about. If you’re feeling stuck and need something to help you get moving, this is definitely the book for you.

I was taken aback by the honesty of this self-help guide. John Paul's experiences are ordinary, yet his perspective is far from it. Immediately after reading, I felt driven to take more agency in my own life and pursue my passions. A great book for anyone who feels like they are in a rut or needs a little encouragement to take control of their situation.

Do you feel as though you’re on autopilot, going through the motions every day—wake up, go to work, come back home, have dinner, sleep, repeat—without real meaning, depth, and purpose in your life? Even if you have a fulfilling job and earn a good salary, that doesn’t mean you’ve found your passion in life. The problem is, finding your passion can be elusive, especially in our present society where we are constantly seeking external validation from others and are being judged in public platforms more than ever (i.e. social media). Perhaps the wisest statement in this book is that “the moment you start to listen to yourself, you can start shutting out all the noise.” This little book is all about soul-searching, self-analysis, and reflection. Sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone and seek out your passions. Sometimes you have to change your mindset and shift your perspective about things in order for transformation and growth to take place. Likewise, it’s also about the choices you make, not so much the major ones but the little ones you make on a daily basis. In his light, honest, and engaging prose, Jean Paul Paulynice encourages you to do some introspection so you can begin your path toward finding your passion and bliss in life. For those who journal, the reflection questions he asks make very good journaling prompts. A very quick read, under fifty pages, It’s Time to Start Living with Passion! is a little morsel of goodness and wisdom that will help on your journey to self-discovery.

This is a very handy book for people who need help with thinking outside the box or need help thinking of new ideas. A lot of times when I’m free I like to relax and think of new ideas for work or with my daily life, most of the times I’m stuck but this book really pushed me forward.

Not to mention how great of a read it is! It felt like a conversation with a good friend! I’m ready to start living my life with passion!
