Passion means a zest for life. It allows us to feel courage and follow our convictions and gives us a strong sense of self, so we can take those first steps out into the world.
Passion comes from feeling confident, from knowing ourselves. It comes from working on our strengths, weaknesses and values. Passion is what makes us feel good about ourselves. Whether we see it or not, the life we’ve lived is our link to the future. Evaluating and understanding our past is the key to securing the passion we feel.
We can be passionate about a cause, something we feel strongly about. We can be passionate about a person, someone we come to admire or love. We can be passionate about food, anything that we take an interest in.
The values we’re taught as children enable us to draw on our passion and our strengths, as long as we’re taught the right ones. When we have passion, things that we do will come naturally and effortlessly. Passion empowers, it motivates us.
When we are empowered, our personal strengths and passion are evident for everyone to see. If others are to believe in us, we must believe in ourselves first. I also believe that when we have passion, our values become evident to those around us in the good deeds we do, in the way we handle ourselves.
