John Maxwell asserted, “passion is more important than a plan; it creats fire and provides the fuel. A passionate person with limited talent will outperform a passive person who possesses greater talent”. I say to you: “Passion in its true form enables one to stumble into true inventions conceived as intentions, already locked up in detention of the undiscovered mind. Life without passion does not guarantee a stumbling into witty inventions, but a fumbling, a crumbling and a tumbling into wicked detentions of ones destiny, leaving one to exist as a destitute without several substitutes in life and career”. “Passion secures the attention of inner potentialities that in turn brings one out of lifelong detentions. Passion affords one the opportunity to set potent goals; only potent goals inspire one to refire and retire out of his/her empire of awesome greatness in life and career.” According to Anthony Robbins, “People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals- that is, goals that do not inspire them”. It takes passion to begin anything, as smokes exist before the fire can be seen. It is said that: “Winning starts with beginning”. I want to affirm that: “Passion is the innate strength that enables one to be done and not damned before one’s dawn; to be cooked, booked and find one’s brooks of greatness and not die a crook; to rehearse in order to be heard and not just react but act; to see into the realm of the invisible in order to be able to do the impossible in life and career.” Henry Ford said that: “Thinking is the hardest work there is, that is the probable reason why so few engage in it”.
Your passion can empower you:
- By a way of increasing your willpower. Someone said: “The secret to willpower is once called want power”.
- By a way of producing energy. Norman cousins said; “Death isn’t the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside of us while we live”. - By a way of setting the foundation for your excellent performances in life and career. Ralph Waldo Emerson asserted, “Every great and commanding movement in the annals of the world is the triumph of enthusiasm”. What do you do with your passion?
- Prioritize your life and career according to your passion: Tim Redmond said: “There are many things that will catch my eye, but there are only a few that catch my heart. It is those I consider to pursue”.
- Protect your passion: In life, there are two breeds of people; one breed is made up of firefighters and the other firelighters. Ralph Waldo Emerson says: “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
I want to say that: “Your passion is directly proportion to your discovery of what lies within you – in your in-vironment and not just your environment.” Samuel Johnson said this in another way, when he said: “Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance”
