Where Does Your Passion Take You?

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??

Where does your passion take you?

Wow!  Cara, this comes with perfect timing.  I was just telling a friend that she has an incredible passion for life.  I am working on mine and the examples you posted are a wonderful reference.  When it comes to my career though, I am full of PASSION!  I absolutely LOVE what I do!!!  I have found that just like your examples... it doesn't matter what you do, as long as you have a strong passion for it.

Hi Kevin - hurray for timing!!  Glad to be included in your passion - it SHOWS!!  Nice to meet you!  :)

Thank you Charles - always great to see you.  New Years are always a great time to re-evaluate!

Hi Lottie - Isn't she sweet?  Whatever she completes, she throws her arms up with abandon, "Ta DA!" she yells!  Ah, we should all do that!  Might be a post yet...

Richard - REALLY enjoying your blog posts - Thanks for the suggest!  I am amazed at how many people have passion for what they do in all walks of life.  We can be inspired!  We just have to look up and around.  ;)  The webinar was by a local builder, so you're probably SAFE!

Nice post, Cara. My mantra is "enthusiasm". Much the same thing. I strive for the enthusiasm of the new agent when all things were possible.

I enjoyed this post.  Passion is an absolute necessity.  It makes me sad to hear people complain about going to jobs they hate every day.  Without passion, you're not really living.

The enthusiasm is contagious!  I was just talking to someone about passion the other day I was criticized recently by a friend who said I was 24/7 with business and should really turn it off but real estate is my passion and it excites me....well on most days LOL

Karen - I so agree with your words.  Chronic complainers have always been a pet peeve - if you don't like your life, your job, your relationship, your kids, your ________, MAKE A CHANGE!! 

Marilyn - love the story.  I don't see anything wrong with 24/7...lol.  :)  What's more exciting than real estate??

This was a fun read, and all the more so because of the energy displayed by that little girl.  Thanks for a mid-day "pick me up!"

You're welcome Mike!  Glad you liked MY photos!

Richard - I read another post today about associates and comments and all of a sudden it hit me - I haven't been "saving" the great folks I've found here in the rain, on my Associate list.  So I got to work pronto.

Cara, I LOVED this post.  YOUR enthusiasm and knowledge about your Tucson real estate market always shines through!!  You obviously show YOUR passion.

My passion - always knowing at the end of  the day I did the absolute best I could and, hopefully, helping at least ONE person that day.  It's simple, but I feel good about it.
