What Is Your Passion?
Seven Characteristics of Unstoppable People
Part 2 in a Seven-Part Series
Based on the book Unstoppable by Cynthia Kersey
Why do you do what you do? Is it passion? Is it just because nothing else came along?
One of the best definitions I found for passion when researching this article is this: “a strong liking or desire for or devotion to some activity, object or concept.”
Passion is the fire that burns deeply inside and fuels the emotions, creativity and will toward success.
Marshall Foch says this about passion: “The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.”
Where passion burns, a way will be found.
I want to write to encourage and inspire others. I will write books, articles, speeches, blogs and single sentence thoughts in pursuit of this drive of mine.
Someday I will write the blog heard round the world. I’m already being read in some faraway places like Russia, Afghanistan, England, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, Germany, India, Brazil, Indonesia and other such places.
My passion is to offer hope, encouragement and inspiration one word at a time to mankind.
Passion sometimes is scary. Robyn Allan says “many of us are afraid to follow our passions, to pursue what we want most because it means taking risks and even facing failure. But to pursue your passion with all your heart and soul is success in itself. The greatest failure is to have never really tried.”
Passion sweeps one off their feet. Now that is some strong something.
When is the last time you were swept off your feet?
So, what is your passion? You have to figure that one out for yourself. Assessment tests, personality profiles and other such tests can point you in a certain direction but to find the perfect focus for your energies? Look inside of you.
Where do your private thoughts take you? When you are alone, what thoughts are on your mind more than any other?
Look within to see what makes your heart beat faster and discover the passion for your life.
