10 steps to finding and keeping your passion

John Wesley, an eighteenth century theologian said, “When you set yourself on fire, people will come and see you burn.” Under Wesley's direction, many of his congregation became leaders in many social justice issues of the day including prison reform and abolitionism movements. Wesley insisted that in this life, man could come to a state where perfect love reigned supreme in one's heart.

When you are firmly grounded in your true passion you are on fire for life. This is each or our birthright.

Life is a journey much more than it is a destination. Finding ones passion can take years to find and often does. There are a lucky few who find our fire early on. But, are they really the lucky ones. There is something to be said for the knowledge and experience you pick up along life’s path. Whether you have found your fire or are still in search or your personal holy grail here are ten tips to keep you on your path to passion.

1.) Live with an open mind and open heart.
2.) The darkest hour is just before dawn.
3.) The glass is always half full.
4.) Let the bridges you burn light your way.
5.) Eagles soar alone while buzzards flock together.
6.) Always be thankful for what you have.
7.) Listen to your gut.
8.) Follow your heart.
9.) Feed the machine.
10.) Never give up. Be patience.

Many of us have found our passions down several different avenues. Since life is a journey there is no one passion but several as passion and fire are a state of mind and state of being rather than a final destination. Whatever your state, set yourself a blaze and let them watch you burn with passion.
