What drives you, excites you, makes you feel as though your existence has a purpose?
Do you have a passion? Or do you believe that fire, excitement and enthusiasm are reserved for the artists, the politicians, those filled with religious fervor?
- Have you ever become so involved in a project that you forget where you are or how you feel?
- Have you ever felt so committed to an activity that nothing else matters?
- Has your passion for a task, a belief or another superseded your other desires, wants, or needs?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you have found your passion. Passion takes you out of yourself and beyond your own needs and awareness. It transports you to a place where time and effort are meaningless. When you spend time doing that about which you feel passionate, you fill your life with energy and joy.
So, during “Pursue Your Passion” Week, find your passion. Find what makes you feel alive, full of purpose, connected in some mysterious way to a greater power or reason for being. Then honor it as much and as often as you can. It is your duty and obligation.
