I love the English Thesaurus: "Passion: fervor, ardor, excitement, enthusiasm, zeal, delight..."
Where Does Your Passion Take You?
It's interesting, the many posts on political issues--sports teams--gun laws--border patrol-- talk shows--etc. etc. etc.
People take a stand. Some louder than others, more colorful than others, more stubbornly than others, but they take a passionate stand.
Others spread happiness and sprinkle enthusiasm like a contagion - the kind of folks people gravitate to, the kind of folks that make things happen.
What is your passion?
Have you found it?
My daughter, a sophomore, comes home from school many a time, upset because the school counselors want her to name her career path. (Like we have life figured out at 15) SOME do, which I find amazing, but I've read somewhere in statistics that we change "careers" 7 times in life. So much for a life path.
What I tell my daughter, is, "Find Your Passion".
What excites you, lights your fire, makes you want to get out of bed in the morning?!
I find avid golfers amazing! Take golfing vacations - How can someone enjoy golf all those hours, and then get up and do it again the same day?
Actors and actresses - what compels them to stand in a cattle call audition for hours?
American Idol contestants - They assemble in stadiums to try out!!
Politicians - Willing to stand on their soap box, meet the public, suffer the media for what they believe in.
Airport ticket takers - You know, I've met some of the friendliest folks in the parking booth, willing to share a smile and a quick story before I go on my way - the power of passion for life is infectious!
That's passion. Just a few examples mind you, but unadulterated PASSION.
Passion fuels our zest for life and if we're lucky, we bring it to our jobs and into our lives on a daily basis.
Do you have passion for your career? Your family? Your hobbies?
I love my career in Real Estate. I'm only six years in, starting my second year full-time, but I've got passion, yes I do -- I've got passion - how about you??
