The Elements of Passion (Part 1)

The pleasure is mine to have you read through this little mind-piece. I hope it will fortify your resolves and help you see an aspect of life that many are ignorant of its very existence. Trust me; you will feel a renewed energy rising from your inner most being.
Quickly pencil down as topic: “The Element of Passion.”
Discipline of Passion
Truth be told, nothing remarkable can be achieved in life without the consummating effect of passion.
Almost in every work of excellence you will see the tangible presence of passion.
Passion makes you behave extra-human.
So what is passion?
  a. Intense emotion or overpowering emotion towards something.
  b. Intense interest or an object of enthusiasm.
All worthwhile biographies and autobiographies are the written expression of passion. You can’t read one and not literally feel a surge of energy emanating from you.
So this suggests you have got passion, and then all you need to do is discover and connect with it.
Hear an excerpt of Steve Jobs’ 2005 Graduation Speech at Stanford University:
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”
Passion is love for. Why do you think most employees hate Mondays but love Fridays? Lack of passion for what they are doing!
Listen to this. It is strong, but true…No passionate medical practitioner will engage in a mindless strike at the expense of a dying patient by his side without doing anything about him.
On the contrary, passion always seeks to serve. It is the expression of a “God-like” nature or tendencies in the affairs of men.
Don’t reverse the order – money doesn’t come first. The order is: Do what you love, and the money will follow plus an incentive called fulfillment.
More than anything in people’s credentials, passion should top the preference. It makes the difference.
There is no substitute for passion. It is fuel for the will.
Your passion will always have more influence than your personality.
So ask yourself these questions:
   a.What is my passion at the moment?
   b.How can I unleash more passion in my life?
   c.How will living with passion support my personal growth?

POINT TO RUMINATE ON: “Passion is one of the causes for all human action.”
