The Living with Passion IQ Matrix explores how to live with more passion, purpose, intention, and enthusiasm as you work toward the achievement of your goals. Passion is the human equivalent of fuel that powers your car. In a similar way passion powers a lifetime of dreams. It’s an energy source for living an inspired, meaningful, and intentional life — driven by purposeful action.
Passion is your vision for your life that extends from your core values, strengths, skills, interests, and talents. With it, you can overcome any obstacle, solve any problem, and circumnavigate the endless challenges that life throws your way. Without it, you will often succumb to anger, frustration, disappointment, and an endless array of problems. Passion is born from experience as we broaden our horizons. Working through this map will help you find your passions and a zest for living your life with purposeful intention.
The mind map specifically defines what it means to live with passion. It highlights the benefits of living with passion and the positive impact it can have on your life. The map also presents you with a set of questions to help you discover and unleash your passions. It then walks you through a series of steps for tapping into your passions each day. It concludes by listing down a number of passion traps that are likely to sabotage your progress as you work toward your goals.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Living with Passion mind map.
- Explore Your Passion: The first branch of this map defines what it means to live a passionate life. Here you will also discover the advantages of living with passion and the consequences for living with a lack of passion.

- Maintain Your Passion: The third branch of this map outlines various things you can do each day that will help you maintain high levels of passion in the pursuit of your goals. This is, of course, very important. Our passions can dwindle at times. And understanding how to maintain high levels of passion can help give us the energy and momentum we need to overcome any struggles or difficulties we face as we work towards our goals.
- Passion Traps: The final branch of this map outlines several dangerous passion traps that you must avoid. Be wary of getting caught up in these passion traps. These traps will tend to throw you off course and can, in some instances, turn your passions against you.
This map provides a roadmap and framework for living a more meaningful, purposeful, and intentional life built upon your deepest passions. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these concepts and ideas into your subconscious mind.
A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your life, and you will progressively begin living your life with more enthusiasm, intention, and purpose. All of which will propel you towards the attainment of your most passionate goals.
