Everyone dead or alive who accomplished great things was a man or woman full of passion. They had an uncommon zeal and enthusiasm for their mission. Jesus was passionate. All through the gospels in the New Testament, we see examples of Him being moved by deep emotion to act, to heal, to raise up, to speak the word…even until the very end.
Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Steve jobs, and so many others whose works, ideals, lifestyle, beliefs are still influencing our world today even after their deaths, were people of passion. Passion lives on. Every man or woman whose name we hear today in sports, entertainment, business, leadership, religion etc are people who are passionate about the things they do.
You cannot be successful without living your life with passion. People with passion are self driven, upbeat, and self-motivated. They don’t wait for someone to come along and persuade or encourage them. If you want to live your greatest life, be at the very top of your calling, then you must have an “inspiring passion”. The kind of passion that makes you intensely committed to your ideas, beliefs, business, relationships, goals etc.
Apostle Paul said; “For is I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes woe is me if I do not preach”. 1 Corinthians 9:16
When I look at my life and my personal mission I can relate it to the words of Paul and tell you; I am passionate about my mission, about helping millions of people all over the world live their greatest lives, one person at a time. I don’t care whether I am paid. I don’t care if I am being encouraged or not. This is my passion. I am compelled to inspire and help others. It is what I am here for.
What are you passionate about? What stirs up your emotions? Go for it folks. Live your greatest life!
