Now this is a good question. There really is no substitute for passion when it comes to energizing your talent.
So,what can passion for you?
1. Passion Is the First Step To Achievement
Loving what you do is the key which opens the door for achievement.When you don’t like what you are doing,it really shows- no matter how hard you try to pretend it doesn’t. Absolutely.
I recollected few years ago. I had been bored with the homely thing and decided to go check out a fashion school where I could be trained and then I become a boss.Waoh! I enrolled for the training but in between,it became boring and I wasn’t feeling any positive vibes. Most times,my trainer would complain about my delivery/output after she’s given me a take-home style to sew. In other cases,she would jeer at me while she’s giving me a class work to do. It wasn’t my drive if I must say. I had allowed my inner cravings of wanting to be free to override the truth that fashion designing is not meant for me maybe someone else.
Few months down the line,I quitted the training and didn’t look back till date.
Simply put,It wasn’t a passion.Aside that,It wasn’t one of my potentials. Thus,it was a struggle for me and that idea really made me wanna puke.
It was few years after,it dawned on me that it wasn’t actually what I was supposed to be doing. My gifts/skillsets didn’t lie there at all rather it was in writing and in communication. So,when it comes to these two,I am so fired up and never wanting to down tools.
Inorderwords,It’s difficult to achieve when you don’t have the desire to do so. This is why passion is important.
John C. Maxwell said, “The only way you can achieve anything of significance is to really want it.Passion provides it.”
2. Passion Increases Will Power
Sometimes,choosing to inspire passion in others by sharing to them what made you passionate-what made you want to get out and do your best can be a wrong way of motivating them. You may not be able to ignite others by sharing yours.
While everyone can possess passion,not everyone takes the time to discover it.
Passion is fuel for the will.It turns your have-to’s into want- to’s.
People who want something enough usually find the willpower to achieve it. Now,you can see the difference? In my case,aside not having a drive for fashion designing,there wasn’t any willpower. It wasn’t from within.
You can’t help people become winners unless they want to win. Champions become champions from within,not from without.
3. Passion Makes You Contagious
Eleanor Doan remarked, “You cannot kindle a fire in any other heart until it is burning wirhin your own.” I believe it’s true.
When you are a passionate person,it comes natural to attract others to you. You are more or less a mentor,an alter ego of some sort and these set of people just want to be like you. Inorderwords, you have something they need and they can as well get it since you can reach out to them indirectly- by your passion.
4. Passion Produces The Energy You Need
When you have passion,you become energized.You don’t have to produce perseverance; it is naturally present in you It helps you to enjoy the journey as much as reaching thebl destination.Without it,achievement become a a long and difficult road.
Some people say they feel burned out.The truth is,they were probably not on fire in the first place. Sigh!
5.When You Have Passion,Sucess Is Inevitable
People are such that whenanything fires their souls, impossibility vanish.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson once asserted, “Every great and commanding movement in the annals of the world is the triumph of enthusiasm.” There needs to be a fire within to achieve success.
The most talented people aren’t always the ones who win. It takes more than talent or skills to create success,it takes passion.
