Our Excitement and Passion - Fuels Unlimited Energy

When purpose ignites the spirit, it generates an inexhaustible fire that burns in the heart of every determined person. That fire is passion.

By living on purpose and pursuing dreams and goals that are consistent with your natural strengths and desires, you can create inevitable passion almost effortlessly. And when that happens, nothing can stop you.

You will give freely of your time and effort and you will not feel that you are making a sacrifice in order to be a success.” Kathy Whitworth, Professional Golfer

When you’re passionate about what you do, it’s not just the destination that matters, but the entire journey. From beginning to end, the journey is an adventure. When you love what you do, you have the energy to overcome any obstacle.

“When you’re passionate, you’re focused, purposefully and determined, without even having to try. Your body, mind and spirit are all working in unison towards the same goal.” Marcia Wieder, Author of Making Your Dream Come True.

Without passion, one simply reduces life to existence, mediocrity, and indifference. The choice is yours. You can choose to access your lifeblood by getting in touch with your purpose and pursuing activities that ignite your passion. To live without passion is to live without fully experiencing life’s wonder, drama, and excitement. Living with passion allows you to experience your senses to their fullest. Passion is the energy that will propel you through any obstacle and turn your dreams into reality.

2. Work Will Seem Like Play

People with passion find it difficult to use the word “work”. Such person are pursuing what they most enjoy and what is a personally rewarding.

3. Others Will Share Your Passion and Enthusiasm.

Enthusiasm draws like a magnet, attracting others to your cause.

“A mediocre idea that generates enthusiasm will go further than a great idea that inspires no one.”

Your passion is an asset. Use it to inspire and enlist the support of others. People ultimately have no choice but to honor passionate commitment.

Identify Your Passion.

To instill passion in your life, you must first return to your purpose. Purpose can lead you down many different paths. Let your unique personality, desire, and natural strengths lead you to the path that is right for you.

The following exercises will assist you in finding that path:

Action 1: Determine what you love. – realistically assess, based on where you are today, what you love to do and the assets you bring to the table.

Action 2. Identify activities based on your loves.

Based on your strengths and personal likes, identify three activities or goals you could set that are in line with your purpose. As an example, my purpose is to encourage others to become aware of the greater possibilities for their own lives and to take action.

Imagine how much richer your life could be if you injected passion into your life and career on a day-to-day basis. When you choose goals and activities that align with your purpose and support your natural strengths and loves, passion will automatically follow. Find what you love and give yourself to it completely. Once you have, nothing can stop you.
