Finding Passion

3 Apr

We go through a lot of experiences and changes as we live our lives.  Sometimes we know what we want to do right away, and other times we need to consider our options before deciding on the way forward.  When there is something we really want to accomplish we may be filled with passion to get it done.  There be an intense conviction that we need to accomplish the task and great drive to move toward it.  Passion gives us an added push that helps keep us going when the road gets rocky or we face complications.  If we lack passion for the things we want to do we may fall into complacency and be unconcerned.  We can take all the time we want to decide our way forward but if all we do is sit and wait nothing will change.  If we don’t make decisions to progress ahead with purpose chances are we will not accomplish the goals we want to achieve.  Complacency is a dangerous game.  If we simply watch our lives go by, we may fall into laziness or apathy and find years pass without accomplishing much.  If we spend our time only thinking about possibilities and are unconcerned about when or if we accomplish them odds are we will do little to move forward.  It takes passion to make strong decisions and stick to them and it’s impossible to be passionate and complacent at the same time.  If we know what we want and are determined to do what is needed to obtain it, nothing can stop us. True conviction and passion are available to all of us all the time.  We need only decide what we want to achieve and then with confidence begin our way forward.

Before we begin any journey we must decide on the destination.  We won’t achieve anything by aiming in circles with no target in mind.  We can do anything and all we need to begin is decide where we want to go and what we want to do.  Once we determine the destination we can begin to plan and start moving forward.  Great satisfaction comes as we conquer each step forward and get closer to the goal.  There will always be complications and distractions but if we are focused and determined we will reach the goal.

When pilots fly they sometimes allow the plane to make decisions by employing the auto pilot feature.  When the plane is in that mode the pilot does not need to focus on the way forward unless an unforeseen complication arises.  Auto pilot is the perfect tool for airplanes but living on auto pilot will never help us reach any destination we are seeking.  We must be fully engaged, passionate about the goal and pushing forward with attention and purpose to be successful.  Complacency will never bring us success.  We can purposefully and with conviction seek out the best choices for our lives and then confidently go forward to achieve them.

Today if you’ve become complacent and haven’t moved forward, decide what you want most and begin anew.  Embrace your passion and direct your course.  You can climb the highest mountain and overcome any obstacle.  The world is there waiting for you to claim it.  Move forward and make all your dreams come true.
