I believe that whatever it is you decide to do, you should do it with all your heart.
With passion we can create amazing things, offer true value, help others, be happy, productive and successful.
Without it, we have average results, aren’t focused on our current activity, lose motivation, aren’t confident and don’t really believe in what we do.
You can recognize a passionate person from afar.
He simply looks contented.
As he’s doing what he loves, puts meaning in it, has a purpose, and if he has managed to turn it into his career (through a lot of hard work and sacrifices), then he doesn’t really have a job, but a hobby, a pleasant activity he fills his days with.
And I think we should use this approach to any other area in life, not just our job.
If you’re going to read, don’t just pick up a random book and try to finish it so that you can have more titles on your bookshelf.
Put it away and replace it with one that inspires you. It’s worth investing a lot of time in finding it, as the power of a book that you can truly grasp and feel passionate about is indescribable.
Or if you’ve decided to start working out, choose something you enjoy.
Jogging may be your thing if you love nature and early mornings. It may be fitness if you like being indoors and looking at yourself in the mirror pushing makes you feel alive.
It doesn’t really matter what you do, but it’s important to be passionate about it.
Only this will make your performance good, will give you purpose, satisfaction, joy and fulfillment.
We live in a world where most people are always in a hurry, doing things they don’t want to do, spending time with people they don’t care about, working for someone they can’t stand, in an environment that makes them depressed.
But it’s also a choice.
Because at any moment you can pack your stuff and leave. And then, start over.
Yes, it’s risky. Yes, it will take months (or years) of hard work. Yes, you’ll have to say ‘no’ to many other things you’re used to.
But throughout the process of getting to your new life you’ll be working on something that’s important to you.
And it’s a universal law that if you put passion and focus into something daily, it will pay off and the results will be amazing.
You just need to stay consistent and motivated. And put your heart and soul into what you do.
So what are you passionate about?
