Passion in Life

Post by viktorados on Sun Nov 04, 2007 10:38 pm

Many of us when we were young were passionate about having fun. We loved painting, playing, reading our favorite books, running, and using our imaginations to create fabulous, fantastic worlds. The question then is why, when we get older do we find it so hard to focus on fun What has changed since childhood I believe what changes is that many adults forget how to have fun.We take life so seriously that we forget that the journey is a large part of what makes the goal so precious. If you find no joy in the journey, their is a good chance in time you'll find no joy in the goal.

Many people picked certain careers, because of the money, and ended up miserable and unfullfilled. So why is it when we start IM many of us look for what can make us the most money One of the things I've noticed about people who are truly successful is that they are passionate about what they do. The greatest football players, the best actors, the best baseball players, they are passionate about their craft. So the lesson they teach is find what you are passionate about and just do it. You won't have a problem focusing because you'll be doing what you love.

People who are passionate about something, spend as much time around what they love as possible. They emerse themselves in their passion so deeply, that it almost defines them. Work is no longer work, work becomes fun, and who doesn't love to have fun. Find a quiet place by yourself, close your eyes, and focus on what you are passionate about. What would you do all day long if you could, if you are thinking about sleep, your passion for life isn't strong enough. Find your passion and you've found your fortune.

I an away from home and joined the military. I was a literally kid running over the world. After my honoralbe discharge I worked during the day and attended the university at night. It became a habit and I did that straight for over twenty years with every degree being an A average. I am very well educated in multiple disciplines but certified in many more besides. Still I understand the pulse of the street.

Need comes first, then comes desire. You speak of desire and I agree with you. Why Because in order to reach our peak performance we need to find work that is our desire. Congratulations for figuring that out. :)

There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite passion of life.

The Law of Attraction, but I'm sure you know this.
Since I have watched the secret and red Think and Grow rich - last 2 weeks - everything makes sense :lol: (I didn't know the Law of attraction before)
