Free Passion: A Gift For You For Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is Monday, so to celebrate, I'm giving away some free passion. And no, it's not what you are thinking!

  1. I would love to read your course, so I can refer others to it! 🙂 This is a common question people struggle with in my office. People are never to excited about going to the community college to take career interest surveys. However, I think they’d be keen to do a self-study course from the comfort of their own homes.

    You know this is a topic I too have been interested in. I love learning about myself. Think I know my passion. My problem is staying focused on one things at a time, and truly developing it.

  2. I strongly believe that it is not coincidence that you offer this course now and it came across me!! I am a mother of a … very special girl, a wife of a loving husband and … an ex-sales executive. Serious family issues that had to do with my daughter, led me to the decision to drop my 20 year career as an office sales executive. At the beginning I thought that I should only focus on family. Soon I realized that there are other ways I can work and at the same time take good care of my daughter … and it was then I started looking around to find what I am really passionate about!! I believe you understand how valuable your course would be for me!! I feel really thirsty for starting a new career in an are I will love!! Please … give me that chance!!

  3. Discovering my passion means a lot to me. I have been in so many relationships that didnt end well. I need to know my passion, discover it and implement it to myself

  4. This is just what I need. My wife and I have been through a tough time recently with things from the loss of a baby to other tragic accidents in the family. Somehow we lost our way and spent all our energy just dealing with daily life.

    We have promised each other that the rest of this year will be different and that we will work together to bring us back to where we were and beyond that to what we truly want.

    Your course would be perfect for us to use together.

  5. Barrie, you are a very generous lady!
    For the past few years I have been telling myself it is time to renew my attitude towards life and bring more meaning into my “being”. I am tired of just slogging through each day, wasting precious time on stupid worries and “what-ifs”. Finding blogs like yours and books on spirituality are helping me put together a strong foundation to create the changes I desire. ~*~

  6. Your website has been very helpful in my quest to figure out what I’m supposed to be doing with myself, as the almost 20 years I’ve practiced law appear to have been only something to keep me busy and pay the bills while figuring it out. In other words, I have been plagued for the past couple years with the nagging feeling that something’s missing, and I’m pretty sure it has to do with passion. I’m passionate about a lot of things (i.e. my children, painting, writing, gardening, yoga and gazing at maps for hours on end), but need help figuring out what grand passion I need to focus on to sustain my soul. Thanks for you help in trying to figure this all out!

  7. I lost my first husband 15 years ago. I divorced my second husband 6 months ago after being together 10 years. After getting out of that situation, I am finally starting to regain my joy for life and family. I am a Christian and have a great supportive family and church family. I do read my Bible and have a few other help materials, but I think what your study will give a different perspective to add to the values I have already. Sometimes you have to hear or read something that says what you already know in a different way, and I know this course will do that plus introduce new ideas.

  8. Is it possible to feel a long term passion for something, for life? If so, I really need this course because I sure haven’t found it. I think what is holding me back is living where I don’t want to with my husband of 38 years who I am not going to divorce. Now if you can tell me I can find passion for life while these obstacles are in my way then I am a good candidate for the course. If not, perhaps someone else could use it.

  9. I left my country (France) less than a year ago for Canada. I thought that going away was going to give me what i needed to feel content and satisfied in my life.
    I was wrong of course, and i am very painfully paying the price for illusions.
    But at the same time, i’m learning so much about myself…
    I came here to discover who i am what is the right place for me, what work wouldn’t feel like work if i was doing it everyday. Not because it’s easy but because it’s so fascinating, for me, that the days go by and i don’t even notice it.

    It’s a difficult path, and sometimes it aches so much that i think i should just give up on myself, and my dreams…

    But the important thing is i can’t do it by myself. I’m seeing a therapist and i try to grab every help i can get in my quest.

    Thank you for trying to help people, this is a wonderful gift.

    Sabrina

  10. This is really exciting! I will like to participate in the course and really dicover my passion. It will really be of great help to my wife and I and in my relationships with people generally.

  11. Alexandra says:

    Dear Barry,
    I could do with some help in finding my passion! I have been very, very seriously ill and survived. In this same period my son of 18 months turned also deadly ill and survided. To top things of my husband had a heartattack. It has been a HELL of a year.
    In spite of what people might believe surviving all this doesn’t give one a sense of joy and fulfillment, but a big depression in stead. It just was too much to handle and I caved in and stayed in shock for a long time. Now, with the help of my dear doctor, some pills and taking things slow, I am coming back to my core, and it is a long way to go and I find that who I was once, I really can’t remember. The person I meet in this process seems always to be scarred, somehow, not whole. This shadow of who I was holds me back, and I want to get rid of the shadow, and meet the sun in my self again.
    I need to find my passion for life, for myself and for the things that give me energy and a sense of belonging back so I can be whole again and bloom in my life. It would mean very much if you could help me.
    I live in the Netherlands. I have given your URL already to a lot of my friends since I met you on the internet, because you really touch my heart and get me thinking when I read your mail in my box.
    Who knows, may be you bring spring in my passion, as the sun brought spring today in our garden and home, after a long and dark winter…

  12. First, may I say thank you so much for offering such a generous giveaway. I would love to receive your course for one reason … when I lost my job 18 months ago, I lost my passion. Ever since, I’ve been in a hazy daze trying to figure out what to do. I’ve traveled to the depths of grief and although I finally feel hope for the future, I’ve lost the oomph to make it happen. Bottom line: I need “me” back. Thank you for considering me. Have a lovely day.

  13. Lately, a small voice inside of me has been urging me to be fearless again. It seems to be a nice bit of synergy with your course. After a few really rough years filled with health issues and, then, unemployment, I am rebuilding my life … and I think your course would be a wonderful tool for that process.

  14. Claire van Antwerp says:

    Wow! What an opportunity. I guess two reasons why it would be amazing to your course come mind. Firstly I feel that life is just happening to me and while I know I have to make it happen I just can’t seem to get passed ‘stuck’. There are so many areas of my life that are nowhere near where I would like them to be, but where do I start and how do I make it happen? Secondly, it would mean that I would actually receive a Valentine’s gift this year! Thank you for blessing the two chosen ones and may they embrace every aspect of the course and bloom!

  15. Linda Ann says:

    I could really benfit from this course, I am struggling with my dad cancer returning, ilnness of a toddler and dr can’t figure out

    I lost me, dealing with my love ones, I would like to learn, about me, what makes me tick
    Why Am I here on eath, what does God want me to do? you so much for offering this course, it would be greatlly appreciated

  16. Surely you will have hundreds of wonderful comments here and reasons for receiving your course. I feel so passionate about life in general – I tend to remain happy and positive even in the face of adversity. But I need help pulling this general “feeling” together so that I can share more of this with others. I love what you do – inspire others to feel passionate and inspired and that is really what I’d love to be able to do also. But I have no formal training in this, it is just an inner feeling. For example, I can never believe when someone (an adult!) says they are bored…oh my goodness – I always have way too many things I’d love to do but can’t find the time for.
    Well, this will get too long if I keep going, but my main point is that I would love the guidance and direction your course would give me so I can in turn do a better job of inspiring others. Thanks for the opportunity!

  17. Ayesha Abu-Bakare says:

    I’d love to have your course because I’m at the point in my life where something has to change or I will always be afraid of change. I don’t know what that is, I don’t know how it will look but I wake up in the morning I know need to be less dread “full” of the day to come when it is such a gift in the first place. Bless.

  18. After reading some of these comments you just realize that there are so many people out there hurting and struggling everyday. Why is it so hard and why is there so much sadness? At times, I feel as if I will be overtaken by the sadness and fear – let’s not forget fear. I think the media sucks in our fear like a big black hole allowing it to get bigger and bigger. How do you fight back this fear and sadness? How do you survive in a world that seems like its only purpose is to destroy you? You fight back by knowing who you are and what you believe in and trusting that that person is exactly who God created you to be. I am sorry to say that I am not doing a very good job of fighting back.

    I will be 40 years old this year and I am not sure if I even have a passion. And if I don’t – why don’t I? What is wrong with me? When you hit a big birthday like I am doing this year – you look back on your life and wonder. You look forward and wonder. I don’t’ want to wonder anymore. I want to live and I want a passion. I am terrified that my daughter will grow up just like me – with just that mediocre attitude about where her life is going. NO!!! I want so much more for her – but I have no idea how to help her. Please consider me for your give away. If it could help me – it would be the best birthday present ever. Not just to me – but also to my family.
    Thank you for all that you do.

  19. “Passion” has been overused to the point that it’s lost most of its true meaning. These days when I read the word I roll my eyes. Reflex. But when I really stop to think about it, the word is much more powerful than its superficial uses.

    There are many things I’m interested in. That I can get excited about. But passionate? I don’t know. I like my job (yeah, I know). I love being out in nature, writing, reading a good book or five, cooking and enjoying food, or competing in weightlifting. But is there something out there that I could get truly passionate about? I don’t know.

    This is where your course comes in. Could it help a person whose emotions are usually overruled by rational thought to discover a true passion (no quotation marks this time) and follow it? I’d very much appreciate a chance to find out.

  20. You’re a tremendous inspiration to me Barrie.
    After 22+ years of living overseas and taking care of home and children while my husband supported our family he has spinal problems and may spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair. Our family is looking at major change, and I think I’m going to be the breadwinner. I’d love to do this without sacrificing my passion.

  21. Very timely indeed .. a new relationship blooming , a new business venture in the wings and a commitment to ‘do it better’ all around from both of us. I simply would love to have a logical and simple road map to discover the passion path and move me away from the traditional left brain method of thinking i usually embrace. So if this is meant to be then please let it be so .. cheers benoit

  22. At first I decided that I wasn’t going to post anything. I have done so many things during the last two years, some of them really BIG; like divorcing my husband of 20 years and quit my job of 9 years for a temporary position, not knowing what to do next and with two young sons to support. I thought since I have already started to change my life your gift would not be for me. But the truth is, all the things I have done so far has been about me getting away from something!

    I have taken these big leaps, wich is wounderful and (for me) very corageous, but in a way I’m totally lost. I know things will work out for me, one way or the other, but when I look back I can see that so many of my decisions in the past has been the decisions of others in my life. I haven’t listened to myself because I can’t hear my own voice. Now I’m at a point in my life were I have to take some new decisions. What am I going to do with the rest of my life? How am I going to support myself and my sons after I quit this temporary position? Is this a time to change direction, start pursuing something new? Should I start my own buisness? There are possibilities opening up. People around me try to tell me what to do, but my gut feeling tells me that their wishes is not my wishes. I need to find my passion, my fire. This is a chance for me to live the rest of my life the way I want to live it, not living someone elses dream. I need to listen to myself. I need to find MY passion.

  23. I’ve been struggling for the past two years with who I am and who I want to be. As a kid I was always energetic, creative and a free spirit. After college I found myself conforming to fit myself into a job. I thought “I need to make money and being different will hold me back”. So now I’m trying to get back to what I want, figuring out what I’m passionate about and what brings light into my life. Being a part of your course would give me the opportunity to dig in and find myself, or at least begin the path of self-discovery.

  24. Barry, I read a meaningful life, thank you; you documented all my beliefs and summarized them very well. I am on the brink of something great, I am 18 months away from my last child finishing high school. After 15 years of being single and raising two very intelligent active children I am in a position to make new choices. I firmly believe we have to do the work to take advantage of the opportunities when they present themselves. I have worked with numerous life coaches competed my own research and prayed for guidance on how to live the next phase of my life demonstrating my passion. I would love the opportunity to take advantage of your offer. Everything I have read or watched of yours so far resonates with me and my years of learning. The thought of having the opportunity to continue with your teachings fills me with anticipation.

  25. I think we should all constantly strive to improve ourselves. I believe I have found my true passion, but since I’m a fan of your blog and all the inspiration it cultivates, I would love to take your course. It could only help deepen my resolve and open gateways to new and exciting paths! Who wouldn’t want that?

  26. I have been searching for my passions for some time. I decided that I want to live the life of my dreams. Live my passion day by day and wake up happy to keep enjopying my life. That is what I would love to experience but I have to confess that its been dificult to find out exactly what my passion really is. I have some ideas but it doesnt seem to be clear. I read your blog and I watched your videos. I found your “Killing the root of limiting belief” video very helpfull. Thanks a lot for the worderfull help. I would love to be able to have a free passion gift and continue in the search of my passion and create the life that I am meant to live.

  27. Thank you for this opportunity Barry . . . I am married to a passionate man and am deeply in love with him. He is my second husband. After ending my 26 year 1st marriage because of abuse, I had second thoughts about getting involved with another man as I entered my 50’s. Now in my 56th year I find I’ve lost my passionate ‘edge’ and longing to find my passionate self again. Your program sounds as if it could guide me in the right direction and that excites and intrigues me . . . I am grateful for the possibilities that lie ahead for myself and for my marriage!

  28. Hello Barrie,
    I hope this day finds you happy and healthy. To be honest with you, I think everyone who doesn’t know their true passion needs this course. Count me at the top of that list. I’ve just recently become aware of the state of reality and feel like a sponge absorbing all this new knowledge. It would definetly be beneficial to have proper guidance and information from the beginning so that I can evolve into the new person that I want to become.
    Thanks for setting up a self-improvement website and sharing your knowledge with the world. Many Blessings
    Ed.

  29. Barrie, could you please remove my name from your drawing? I just read all the posts and I think there are many others who could use a boost and some happy news more than me. Thanks! 🙂

  30. Hi,

    I’m entering myself because I find that I’m at a crossroads and quite unsure about how to proceed, and in which direction. Actually… more than one crossroads… there is turmoil inside and outside and although I am not unhappy, I’m definitely looking to outside sources right now to tap the strength within.

    Best of luck to all of you above and below, too.

    J.

  31. Barrie Davenport says:

    My dear friends,
    I am so incredibly moved and humbled by your amazing courage, honesty, and desire for a better life. A passionate life is what we all deserve and our dream for that can never be quenched. Thank you for sharing your stories here. You are all unbelievably strong and bold. Just by responding to this post, you have take a big step forward. I applaud you!! Keep seeking. 🙂

  32. There comes a time in your life when you feel floating, no anchors and no land in sight. You’re just there, getting tossed by waves, swayed by winds.
    No matter how much you search your mind, your heart and your soul, you can’t seem to know where you want to be.
    It’s a decision, a choice. And it’s not easy.
    I am joining because I want to make the better choice.

  33. Hi Barrie,

    Thanks for the wonderful opportunity you are offering here; I enjoy receiving your emails on subscription, having previously downloaded both your Bold Living Guide, and 23 Ways to Rock Your Mind and recommend them to others.

    After reading the comments above, and other peoples’ journeys, I would like to offer my ‘comment’ entry to the draw to SOMEONE ELSE from you comments list! So PLEASE EXCLUDE ME.

    A while back I too was at a crossroads. We are lucky today that there are so many resources at hand, and through using your (and others’ resources), self-reflection and discovery, following positive folk on Twitter, and reading versions of the ancient literature, I realise that life in all its forms is good!

    GLEANINGS:
    Where-ever you go, there you are… You cannot escape yourself, or the things that happen to you, but you can control how you react. Be kind to yourself, be kind to others. They are all too on a journey.
    Your life is brilliant right here, right now. Recognise it, live it. Take a deep breath…
    Step outside yourself, participate and help others. Look around. There are ALWAYS folk worse off.
    There is power in action. Do stuff.

    HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE (for the 14th). If there is no-one to spoil you – YOU CAN BE YOUR OWN VALENTINE… you don’t need permission. ; )

  34. Hi Barrie-

    Thank you very much for your inspiring blog.

    I’m a freshman in college and I know that I am passionate and that I want to do something with my life, I just don’t know exactly where to start. This year has been harder for me since I’ve left my family and friends-the things that meant the world to me- to go to a school hundreds of miles away. I thought that they were my passion, and so I’ve felt a little lost here, but in the past few weeks I’ve begun trying to live a life that is “happily independent”-taking time for ME and not worrying about being left out of other people’s lives. The people that I really need in my life-old friends and new- will always be there; it doesn’t matter if I don’t see them everyday or talk to them constantly. I should be able to take time for myself and do things that I really want to do, live my life the way that I really want to live it, and not try to schedule every free moment I have around other people. I’m trying to find my passion- I can feel it and know that I am passionate and that I want to do something with my life- I just don’t know how to start. Your course could be the boost I need to really discover myself and maybe start living a life that is both happily AND passionately independent.

  35. I will be 30 in September. I have been suffering from major burnout for about a year and a half. I struggle too with depression and bipolar disorder. I know that there is a great life waiting for me, but I need some reinvigoration and some direction. I could so use this course to find something to get excited about again. Thanks for your consideration.

  36. Hi Barrie!

    I really need these gifts, and here’s why:

    I was diagnosed with depression several years ago, halfway through my freshman year of college. I’m still struggling with this disease, but lately I’ve been taking great leaps and bounds to get back to normal. I’ve been searching for materials to help me get back on track: various “devotional” books for daily spiritual, religious, and intellectual growth, depression resources, and of course motivational guides, one of which is Jason Gracias’s Motivation 123. I actually discovered your website through DragosRoua.com, a personal development blog. This is all wonderful and helping me LIVE a better, more productive life, but there’s one problem: I’m not feeling it. I have my moods stabilized from the despair of deep depression, so I know that’s not what’s wrong with me. I have fun with my friends, and laugh at jokes, and take delight when something good happens to me, but I am just sort of ho-hum about my daily life. I think this largely has to do with what I’m doing right now: I had to leave my college of choice and I’m attending a local school right now, but I don’t love it and I’m not studying anything in particular, nothing that makes me excited. I’m working a terrible waitressing job that I hate to help me get through school, and I feel like I’m making no progress on all my grandiose, long-term plans . I have the vision to live a great life, but I feel like I’m lacking the passion. My depression made me lose that part of me, and I need something to help me discover it again. I firmly believe your course will help me do just that.

    I hope you pick me, but even if you don’t, I want to thank you for coming up with all these wonderful guides and for giving us access to them.

  37. Ever since your “Year of YOU” post, Barrie, I have made 2011 my year of me. It’s such a wonderful, delicious feeling to have a full year devoted to finding out that someone who got lost in all those years of people-pleasing and unconscious living. If I get picked, Barrie, you will make me one of the happiest persons in the world. It’s one of those gifts that I would treasure for always. Good luck to everyone! Each one of you is a beautiful person, including you, Barrie.

  38. Mary Farmer says:

    Hi Barrie,

    I’m a social worker by profession and throughout my career my passions changed every now and then as I grew in my career. At present I’m not dealing with clients anymore but am totally administrative; although I still have a passion for the vulnerable groups such as children and older people. I did a life coaching course and intend to resign and start my own life coaching practice. I am somehow frustrated because I can’t live my passion i.e. to help people who feel that life has no meaning anymore. However, sometimes one thinks that you have found your true passion but then are times that doubt comes in. I’m interested in what you course can teach me and what I probably might discover. I might just get some clarity on what I really should do with my life from now on.

    Regards

  39. Barrie:

    I think I know what my passion is and want to explore it more. That is why I decided to sign up for your blog and newsletters. For me. the echo of all the people who have already commented makes me wonder if I am exploring my next BEST PASSION. Over the course of a life we encounter new places, new people and discover parts of ourselves that we never knew; strengths we thought we had lost or opportunities missed that present themselves anew. I am eagerly, vibrantly approaching the next steps with wonder and imagination, but most of all gratitude for the ways we can now express ourselves so openly, to so many people via this medium. I have long written poetry and want to start a blog as well, and yours stands out head and shoulders above many that try to reach out to women and our needs to feel we truly matter, that our passions are not about any one thing or person or circumstance, but about us as individuals and members of women hood as a whole.

    I am sure your guidance will be invaluable to at least two of us for free, and no doubt for all who do write and ask to be considered.

    Thank you for your generosity and what you have already done…and Happy Valentine’s Day!

  40. I need this course because I am awakening to my true self and unfolding my wings which have been so tightly curled around me.

    I need to discover my passion so I can spill from my translucent wings and fly so close to the sun that my feathers melt, and I fly unsupported.

    Fingers crossed.. here’s hoping!

  41. I would like to find the passion for my boys. I have 11 and 9 year old’s who enjoy seeing me at my best. It’s not always there like I’d like it to be. I have a couple physical ailments that limit the person I was meant to be and sometimes that gets in the way of showing the boys what I believe to be the best example.

  42. I’m at that crossroad myself. In 2008, my husband of 30 years left me for my best friend. Our older daughter had just gotten married, our youngest was out of college, and I thought we were at the beginning of “our time.” Instead I was at the beginning of “me time.” I was living alone for the first time in my life. I even started a blog about my adventure.

    The problem is that I had no idea what to do with it. I spent the last two years in therapy working on me, on how I was in such a wrong marriage for so long, and how I had ignored my needs for so many years. I’m finally moving on, but I know that over the years I went in a lot of wrong directions seeking my passion – I’d like to get there this time.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  43. I would love to truly find what my passion is in life. I feel like I am floating along not sure of the direction that I should be taking. I have so many choices and ideas, but nothing that gives me that spark.

  44. Well I’ve been on this journey since last 6 years and slowly but surely the energies / spirits have been guiding me to achive my passion my dream and be FREE. However one question which I havent found an answer to is WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO BE DOING? WHAT IS MY PASSION! So this search has brought me here! Maybe you have the answers to my quest to the next summit.
    I’d be overjoyed to recieve the free gift of love / passion which is coming my way. Thanks in advance for the same.
