What is Passion? We each have many talents, but our passions are unique.
The talents come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from the athletic to the scientific, the artistic to the culinary, the technological to the interpersonal. Some talents remain hidden for years, only to be revealed later in life by surprise. Others, we are aware of from the very beginning. And still others go unnoticed throughout our lives.
And while our talents can certainly bring us happiness, missing out on one or two won’t doom your existence.
No, it is your passion that has that power. By ignoring your passion, you can never be fulfilled, be content, or find true success.
Your passion isn’t just a talent. You passion is what fills you with an electric sense of meaning; it’s what gives your soul direction and it’s what keeps the heart beating. Without passion, life would be worse than dull—it would be pointless. Following your passion is the most important step in a spiritual growth plan.
So, what is your passion? It could be cooking or writing or knitting, sure. Or it could be working in a high-tech laboratory. It can be anything. And when it comes to passion, there’s no altruistic judgment—passion is about how YOU feel, not about how you make OTHERS feel.
Whatever makes you feel like you’re buzzing with energy, capable of climbing any metaphorical mountain, or strong enough to take on everything that anything throws at you—this is your passion.
And by spending some time everyday focusing on your passion, you’ll find that your life will be happier, more fulfilling and exponentially more successful.
