Throw Yourself Into Life With a Passion

Green Bay Packer Fans at Bay Beach Helicopter Ride

If you've ever been to Green Bay, WI, you understand that football fans take the meaning to a whole 'nother level. Infants are wearing the colors, Halloween costumes sport the green and gold, winter wear of choice is a Packer's Sweatshirt, and cars proudly fly waving banners, specialized license plates, beads over the rearview mirror and more.  More than one owner has their car painted in fan proclamation.  There's tailgating, house parties, billboards, green and gold bakery items in the stores, streets and buildings named after players and coaches -- It seems that the greater population celebrates the franchise with year-round passion.

How do you "attack" your passion in life?  Do you proudly wear your "colors"?  Do you weather the good seasons and bad seasons and optimistically envision a "super-bowl" finish?  Can you sit out the storm in hopes of catching something you just don't want to miss?

It's easy to corrolate a Green Bay Packer's season with my Real Estate career.  I didn't automatically start out as a star quarterback.  I started out as water boy, slowly moved into "third" string and have been working my way up, gaining education, experience, and lots of hard knocks.  My championship season is yet ahead of me, but I can feel it, taste it, envision it.  It's coming, just like ANY Green Bay Packers fan knows the next Superbowl is just around the corner.

I've had rainy seasons.  I've dropped the ball, fumbled, picked myself back up again, and put my toe to the line.  An inch at a time in forward motion gets the job done.

I can take a lesson from once again experiencing the passion of the Green Bay Packers fans during my recent visit.  If I wear it, live it, dream it, envision it - Passion for my career can mold me into a first-string player.

Hi Cara,

Thank you for that post and I love the football analogy. I have visited Lambeau Field and taken the tour. It's a wonderful stadium but I now live in Texas so it's Cowboys all the way for me now!!

Yes, you certainly have to enter into everything with a passion if you want to succeed. I know I certainly do and am reaping the rewards.

Good luck!

Hi Cara -- what a great analogy you used. Living life with passion is living life. There used to be some beer company using the tag line of 'go with the gusto.' I can't remember the beer, but I remember the gusto!

Cara,  This is wonderful!  Life without PASSION is boring.  I suggested this one.  It should be featured.  We all need to have passion for our work among other things.

Thanks everyone for stopping by!  I was a die-hard Packers Fan for over 20 years, and I still catch a game now and then.  :)

Lottie - It's Schlitz and I remember too!

Marian - Thank you for the suggest!  I think Passion helps us survive the low spots!
