The Power of Passion
What Are You Passionate About?
We are all passionate about something. Are you a good cook and stand ready to try a new recipe? Without realizing it you may have a passion for cooking. You may be passionate about animals with a desire to stop puppy mills.Or perhaps you find yourself writing a story or how-to book and just can't seem to stop.
There can be more than one area we find excitement and purpose in life. Passion comes in a variety of forms.Take a look at the following:
- Maybe you simply smiled at everyone you passed today and sincerely felt a love for your fellowman. That's your passion. You love to be around people. Finding areas of service will fill your passion.
- Perhaps you really make an effort to respect your body and you've lost a few pounds, exercise regularly and are living a healthy, nutritious life-style. This becomes your passion.
- You recently discovered you love the art of painting and you're good at it.
- Or you went the extra mile at work and did more than just put in your 8 hour day. Integrity is part of your make-up - it's your passion.
- Your family is your entire world. You feel inner joy and satisfaction when your day is filled with activities which include your family.
- The sound of the violin ignites your very being. Any opportunity to attend a concert featuring this beautiful instrument is a top priority. Mozart, Handle, Schubert, Brahms - each fills you with passion.
Performing With Passion
Find Your Passion - Be Unstoppable
Passion energizes your life. It gives you the fuel to keep going. It doesn't matter how many times you fail or if others say you cannot succeed. You just keep going and you don't stop until you succeed.
Nothing empowers you like your passion does. It's the first step to achievement. When you love what you do you have the golden key that opens the door for achievement.
One reason that passion is so important is because it is the foundation for desire. It's the link to excellence.
A golden moment can be claimed by anyone once their passion is revived. And we all have it. Every single one of us. It's easy to find. It brings us joy and excitement because we're good at what we're passionate about.
To discover your passion, all you have to do is find something you like to do and then do it with passion.
Our passion is almost magical. Other people are attracted to us because of it. We feel unstoppable when we use it. When we lose it, we experience a loss of creativity...a loss of inspiration.
We can become stagnate and unproductive. We are not living up to our potential. We may even experience feelings of low self-esteem and negativity.
So, how do we find that special spark and what steps are necessary to find our passion?
The Importance of Passion
"Nothing is as important as passion. No matter what you want to do with your life, be passionate."
-Jon Bon Jovi
An Attitude Adjustment And Taking Responsibility
During my first year on hub pages I wanted to be a greeter. I love helping new hubbers. So I applied and was denied my request to become a hub page greeter.
Today I have a better understanding of why I wasn't ready. But at the time, I didn't take it very well. Both my ego and my desire to write took a nose dive. I didn't qualify for the job. Well, I would show them, I would refuse to write for several weeks. ( Big mistake.)
The traffic began to decline on my hubs and I missed not writing. I decided to continue supporting new hubbers on my own and begin writing again. But try as I may I just couldn't get going. It was time for yours truly to stop sulking over being turned down as a greeter and take responsibility for writing good material.
Obviously, my attitude needed some serious adjusting. It didn't take me long to learn my own attitude was at fault Our attitude is our power drink. How's the quality of your life at this very moment? If it isn't all it could be consider changing your attitude to change your life.
Living life brings obstacles. We all know about hurdles. These annoying interruptions can bring on pain, depression, negativity, failure, loneliness, and much more. However, along with these obstacles, there is a way to continue to progress and reach our goal.
Acceptance is a key element for progression. Accept what is and keep on going anyhow. Light up your own path and get through the dark days. Begin focusing on what you do have and not on what you don't have.
Writing With Passion
My first year on hubpages found me the happiest I have felt in a long time. I was knocking out hubs left and right. The support I received from my hub family provided me with inspiration and confidence. My passion was on fire. And I received a Hubnugget for one of my hubs.
But I noticed that every once in a while I lost the inspiration to write. I wasn't sure how to get my fire roaring again. I am known as unstoppable when I make up my mind to do something. And it is my passion for writing that fuels my writers engine.
So I decided to spend the next couple of days reading articles created by other hubpage writers and let me tell you it was just what I needed. As I scanned through hub after hub I began to come up with fresh ideas for writing. I began asking myself "What key element is responsible for my interest in certain articles?"
I found this answer. It's the passion and I could feel that passion as I read line after line in one hub followed by another. Soon the old motivation was back as strong as ever.I could feel the magic of my own passion stirring strong and powerful. The flame of writing returned. I was on fire.
The Key to Success is Passion
It isn't talent, but enthusiasm that builds the fire within to achieve success Everyone can have passion but not everyone discovers it. And what we come to accomplish here in life is based on what we want and how much we want it.
The Greatness Within Us
Keep Your Passion Alive
My favorite quote by Emerson is " What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us."
I like this quote because it makes me feel as though I can accomplish anything. I can even become a hubgreeter - you just watch me! My passion for writing is ignited by each of you. It is your writing that inspires me and keeps my passion alive.
We are all deserving of moments of wonderful success. It' s passion that moves each of us to define and illuminate who we are. Take a moment every now and then to protect your dream. Take time to find your passion and be unstoppable...because that is exactly what you are.
"I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious." -Albert Einstein
