This is a very important question – its something that if are serious about – it will affect you all of your life. You will either become obsessed with for the good and it will change you and the world or it will just be a side track and waste your time etc.
So how do you know which way you are going?
It is easier than you think, if it is inspired and it helps you and others be better at some thing and brings you joy – it is inspired and you should pursue it… if it just involves you and is wasting your time — dump it — you are going in the wrong direction!
Again what makes you so excited you will do almost any thing for it?
I am talking about something that is positive and up lifting – not a vise or addition, not something that is just self centered —
To me it’s easy – its simple yet difficult to do – it’s life changing but it takes work and when you see it – in action – it is amazing and it gives you a lot of hope and faith to see it working in your life and in the lives of others —
What is that you ask?
It’s the light of Christ and the restored gospel — in peoples lives —
It helps them in every thing they want to do —
It begins with faith, repentance, baptism, and the gift of the Holy Ghost but it is forever life changing —
Sadly most people don’t ever partake of it ,,, Why? Because of fear and sin…
I add it to all self help principles – it’s the greatest self help principle of all and it come from God the Father – through the Holy Ghost and his only begotten son Jesus Christ…
It makes every thing better… even trials and great problems of this life…
The gift of the Holy Ghost is powerful and its just part of these blessings…
Add this to your passion and you forever be blessed!!

The Holy Ghost Parley P. Pratt
He is an intelligent being, in the Image of God, possessing every organ, attribute, sense, sympathy, and affection that is possessed by God Himself. But these are possessed by man, in his rudimental state, in a subordinate sense of the word. Or, in other words, these attributes are in embryo, and are to be gradually developed. They resemble a bud, a germ, which gradually develops into a bloom and then, by progress, produces the mature fruit after its own kind. The Gift of the Holy Ghost adapts itself to all these organs or attributes.
It quickens all the intellectual faculties, increases, enlarges, expands and purifies all the natural passions and affections and adapts them by the gift of wisdom, to their lawful use. It inspires virtue, kindness, goodness, tenderness, gentleness and charity. It develops beauty of person, form and features. It tends to give health, vigor, animation and social feeling. It invigorates all the faculties of the physical and intellectual man. It strengthens and gives tone to the nerves. In short, it is, as it were, marrow to the bone, joy to the heart, light to the eyes, music to the ears, and life to the whole being.
In the presence of such persons (who have been thus affected by It), one feels to enjoy the light of their countenance, as the genial rays of a sunbeam. Their very atmosphere diffuses a thrill, a warm glow of pure gladness and sympathy of Spirit.
No matter if the parties are strangers, entirely unknown to each other, each will be apt to remark in his own mind, and perhaps exclaim, when referring to the interview- “Oh, what an atmosphere encircles that stranger! How my heart thrilled with pure and holy feelings in the presence of this person. What confidence and sympathy he inspired.
His countenance and spirit gave me more assurance than a thousand written recommendations, or introductory letters.” Such is the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and such are it’s operations, when received through the lawful channel-the Divine, Eternal Priesthood.
(Parley P. Pratt, Key to the Science of Theology, pp. 101- 103)
