It was on the island of Koh Samui when I first had the realization that would change my life. I had been traveling for over 4 months on our Southeast Asian jaunt by then and I was getting worried about facing reality a few months ahead.

What happens after our adventure ends? Would I have to look for another corporate job?

Then I reached into my wallet to count the remaining Thai baht I had and a piece of paper slipped out. It said:

When my life is ideal I am...

1 ...Traveling
2 ...Speaking
3 ...Surfing
4 ...With a person who is equally passionate
5 ...Part of a community that helped people succeed

I had a choice of finding another job I would eventually despise. Or find a way to make a living doing what I loved.

More than a year later, I am very close to my ideal life. Here I am traveling in Indonesia, mostly to surf. I spend a few hours online each day working on the blog, connecting with like-minded people and And in a few weeks I will be back in Cebu to do a talk with the country's top motivation speaker Francis Kong. It's a dream come true for me to be one of the 2 other speakers for Francis' event along with social media expert and firestarter Jay Jaboneta for Winning Disciplines for Success- Cebu. I will talk about winning with passion and how we can start doing work that we love.

Passion Play

After the recently successful run of Passion Play in Zambales almost a month ago, I have decided to share what I know through a retreat in Moalboal. I want to share the joy of living with passion to Cebuanos and to eventually to all Filipinos.

The Passion Play retreat can help you:

1 Gain clarity about those things that are most important to you
2 Discover your Passions which are clues to your personal destiny
3 Learn valuable information on how to begin living your passions today

Passion Play Zambales

Of course the retreat is not for everyone. But it is specially designed for people who want more direction in their lives.

Are you at a stage in your life when you start questioning if you are in the right career or occupation?
Are you paralyzed by indecision and asking yourself: What should I do with the rest of my life?
Do you have so much excitement and energy but are juggling too many things and don't know which ones to prioritize?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, Passion Play is the best way to start having more clarity, joy and fulfillment NOW.

We are all defined by the things we love. And the more we are clear on our passions, the more joyful our lives become. Have you noticed that passionate people are like magnets? We are quickly drawn to their positive energy, their excitement for life and their smile!

Join us for a weekend of Passion, Discovery and Play! Aside from the Passion Test workshop, we will have water activities like snorkeling, yoga and painting.

Here are a few things that people say about the Discover Your Passions workshop with Lois Yasay:

Discover Your Passion Workshop

"Lois helped me organize my life in under 3 hours, and her process has helped me (and all of us) identify what truly matters most to each one of us."
―Alessa Lanot of Life After Breakfast

"Through the Passion Test, I’ve found that what I thought I wanted the most in life wasn’t what I needed to start living my ideal life today. I’ve found that I spent a lot of time on things that I wasn’t really passionate about."
―Jen Horn of Nomad Manager

"The Passion Play re-sparked my imagination to start thinking of who I am and what I want to be. It reminded me of the questions that I once long ago put aside for whatever reasons. With Lois’ help and her series of activities, I was at least moved to stay longer, to be stronger and to fight harder. We’ll always run into brick walls, but we HAVE to find ways around it, because if we really want something badly, we don’t just give up."
―Cheryl Golangco of When in Manila
