Without passion, our dreams tend to be…well…just dreams. Wishful thinking about possibilities. Passion is the fuel that ignites our inspiration and prompts us to take action and actually moving forward on the path towards making our dreams into our reality.
Without passion to motivate our actions, many people tend to give up when confronted with even the most minor of obstacles. The difficulty they experience becomes a get-out-of-jail-free card so to speak. It gives them an out and lets their fear win.
However, those who work and live from a place of passion and deep desire to achieve something, rarely focus on possibilities, but rather focus their attention on probabilities and set out to find ways to accomplish their goals. They view failure as nothing more than one possible outcome. Instead of getting mired down in worry and fear, they instead choose to focus all of their available energy on making a plan of action with the commitment to take whatever actions are necessary to produce the expected outcome.
Sure some of them might have passing worries, especially when they aren’t making the progress they’d like, but passionate people know what they love and what they want, and they go for it. Often, they are too busy succeeding and planning the next leg of their fabulous journey to give more than just a passing notice to anything that doesn’t line up with what they are wanting to achieve. Their passion keeps them motivated and moving in the direction they want to go, and quitting or failing usually is NOT EVEN AN OPTION in their minds.
I’m sure you would recognize these kinds of people. They are the movers and shakers of the world who are achieving phenomenal success. Those who always seem to be on the go and who always seem to have a blessed and successful life. But it wasn’t handed to them. They planned for it and worked hard to get there. They didn’t let fear and doubt freeze them in place and cause them to lose momentum. They kept driving forward.
So what are the things you are most passionate about in your life? Those are the things you have the greatest chance of success pursuing.
