Once upon a time, there was a land filled with abundance and infinite possibilities. The people in the land were also filled with limitless potential, unique talents, skills, and most importantly – many dreams, much passion, and great hope.
And every day, the people of the land yearned deeply to find more meaning, joy, and fulfillment in their life.
And every day, they worked hard to attain that. They searched for it in their jobs and job titles, in their finances, and in their many accomplishments and achievements.
But somehow and somewhere along the way, in the midst of all their hard work, and despite all their achievements, they began to forget about their dreams, their passions, and all the great hope they were once filled with.
In fact, they began to feel farther away and more disconnected than ever from the very meaning, joy, and fulfillment they so desperately craved.
Until one day, they discovered a land within their land that was filled with the most incredible people, stories, and insights that reminded them, inspired them, and empowered them to bring back to life all of their great dreams, passions, and visions they had forgotten.
And because of that, they began to reconnect with those dreams and passions. They started doing more of what they loved, and they started becoming more of who they loved.
Until finally, they realized that they had been searching for that meaning and fulfillment in all the wrong places. They realized that it was always within themselves – in their dreams and in their passions, which they had forgotten.
And since that day, they live everyday full of passion, purpose, meaning, and fulfillment.
And the moral of the story is to Seize Your Passion! To do more of what you love and to be more of who you love. To realize your dreams and become your best self. To live your life to the fullest!
The word “Seyopa” is an acronym made up of the first two letters of Seize Your Passion!
Inspiring and empowering you to live that message – to go out into the world and Seize Your Passion – is Seyopa’s core purpose and mission. It is the driver of everything we do, and every piece of content we share, curate, and create for you.
We want you to realize your dreams and become your best self. We want you to do more of what you love and to be more of who you love. We want you to live your life to the fullest – with passion, purpose, meaning, and fulfillment. Because we believe that is the BIG WHY we are all here.
We are Champions of Passion! We believe in doing what you love and in being who you love. We believe in believing in yourself and in going after your dreams. We believe in connecting with, and engaging in your passions, as well as living out of your own inner Passion. We believe in growing through life, not just going through it. We believe in connecting with and becoming your truest and best self, we believe in connecting with and learning from others, and we believe in manifesting your own unique and individual Personal Legend – the person you were born to become and the reason you were put on this earth!
PASSION is at the heart of Seyopa because we believe that Passion is at the heart of how you can truly realize your dreams and become your best self. When you begin to connect with, engage in, explore, learn, develop, and grow your passions, and when you start to live out of your own inner Passion in everything you do, then you start to leverage that Passion into the ultimate gateway to endless more energetically similar and positive states of being that we all seek in life, and that make life worth living:
creativity, capability, imagination, innovation, inspiration, connection, confidence, contribution, collaboration, value, meaning, truth, purpose, authenticity, individuality, love, compassion, gratitude, community, opportunity, talent, skill, commitment, determination, resilience, abundance, growth, success, happiness, and fulfillment.
Whether you are a multi-passionate individual, someone who knows exactly what your one true passion is, or you have no clue what your passion may be; whether you are an entrepreneur, an artist, a professional, you have a career or not – the message to Seize Your Passion! – applies to you.
Our long term vision is to create a global community and a customized platform that will serve as the go-to hub for positive, meaningful, inspiring, and empowering content that also entertains; stories, people, ideas, and resources that promote and contribute to individual dream realization and personal growth on a global scale!
This website, and our growing community (11,000+ strong and going) is the first stage of that vision. Thanks for being a part of our journey, as we hope it helps you on yours :-).
A bit more from Seyopa’s creator and founder, Rachel:
My name is Rachel, and I’m the proud creator and founder of Seyopa (#SeizeYourPassion!). I believe that you are here for a reason – to become your best self and to live your life to the fullest, with meaning, purpose, passion, and fulfillment. I believe that’s why we’re all here. I believe you have gifts to give, value to add, and dreams to realize! I believe we all do!
I decided to create Seyopa as a vehicle to live out and manifest those beliefs myself, and simultaneously inspire and empower as many people as possible to do the same.
Like you, and like me, Seyopa itself is also on a journey to becoming its best self, manifesting its highest purpose, and realizing its vision and dream of impacting, inspiring, and empowering as many people as possible. This website, its content, and Seyopa’s growing community is Phase 1 of that journey, and of my vision to create a new kind of positive, meaningful, and impactful media platform for story-driven edutainment, content, people, ideas, messages, and resources that inspire, empower, promote, and contribute to individual growth and dream realization on a global scale!
I decided to create Seyopa when I had a life-changing epiphany, not too long ago. I realized that despite having achieved all sorts of goals I had set out for myself earlier in my life, and despite having reached all sorts of milestones we’re “taught” we are meant to reach, and even though I had achieved a “successful life”- somewhere along the way, I had lost my connection to my deepest and truest self, to the parts of me that fueled my passion, inspired me to grow, become my best self, realize all of my dreams, and manifest my own unique Personal Legend.
I realized that I yearned for more fulfillment, purpose, meaning, and passion in my everyday life. I wanted to be more, I wanted to do more, I wanted to achieve more, I wanted to grow more, I wanted to contribute more, I wanted to create more. So, I started looking for how I could do that. I searched for people, stories, websites, groups, and different resources online that could help guide me, and inspire me.
What I found was an incredibly fragmented, extremely noisy, and often disingenuous digital and social media landscape. I had to go to countless different platforms, websites, and apps. I had to sift, sort, and filter out the crap, the sales pitches, and the stuff that just didn’t resonate with me. I had to dig really deep and really long to find the quality, authentic, and diverse resources, voices, and stories I was looking for. And, I had no efficient way to organize, personalize, save, and share what I loved in one place for easy, on-demand access later. The whole process was overwhelming, not too mention incredibly time consuming, and anything but inspiring. It was downright frustrating.
And so, the vision for Seyopa was first conceived – one place where people could discover, share, personalize, organize, save, and access select content, resources, and people that inspired, informed, transformed, and even entertained. One place with one purpose – to help people realize their dreams, become their best self, and achieve passion, purpose and fulfillment in their life. No noise, and no BS. This website and building the Seyopa community is the first stage of that vision.
Personally, I too am on a journey of growth to unleash my best self, realize my dreams, and create my most fulfilling, meaningful, and purposeful life. Creating, developing, building, and growing Seyopa is a huge part of that journey. And, I wouldn’t trade it for anything else in the world! Thank you for being a part of Seyopa’s journey, and mine. I sincerely hope it inspires and helps you on yours.

P.S. I created this video when I first embarked on this amazing journey of creating Seyopa. Though some of the details of how Seyopa will manifest its best self have changed, and continue to evolve, the core message, essence, and heart of my vision, mission, and purpose for and through Seyopa that I express in this video remain steadfast and true. Enjoy 🙂
