We could talk passion all day, it is a catch word, and there have been thousands of articles written about it; but it still seems to be something covered in mystery.

A life of passion is a life of Achievement.

Passion is something that most people seem to only get in spurts. They have a fit of it about a topic on Tuesday, don't really think about it after its gone and don't really wonder what they could or should do with it while its here. Everyone wants to achieve as much as they can in their lives, but most people seem to fail to grasp on to the fact that passion is the driving force behind all major achievements.

It might not even be a passion for the achievement itself so much as it is a passion or drive to make a parent or loved one happy. Passion shows itself as an intense emotional connection to a topic. I myself am very passionate about helping people get what they want out of life, that passion drives everything I do, it gives me energy when I'm tired, ideas when I'm empty, and it drives my thoughts all day every day. This passion to help was something that I noticed I had 10 years ago, but it wasn't until 5 years ago that I began to seek it out and hold on to it with everything I have in me. Also important to not that in the last 5 years I have achieved more things that I am proud of then I had in the whole of my life before I went after it.

Passion is a sign that you are deeply in tune or in harmony with a certain subject or desire. You vibrate on a like wavelength with the thing, you feel strongly connected with it. Some say that passion is how God tells you what it is you are supposed to be doing with your life. But passion isn't always a flurry of energy, it normally starts out as a keen interest that once fed with knowledge and support grows into a raging fire. A life filled with passion keeps the soul warm, consumes the challenges of life, and fuels the soul that propels the body and mind into action.

What are you passionate about? I have met some many people that don't really know, they don't have a clue what truly fires them up. Think about what consumes your thoughts, when you dream big what do you dream of? Is there something you can do, read about, or talk about for hours non-stop and feel completely energized and excited the entire time? If you didn't have to worry about money and all the other problems of life, what would you do? What do you want to be remembered for, how do you want to leave your mark on the world? These questions can help you to identify your passion, and following your passion will open up a new world for you filled with excitement and adventure.

What Do You think about passion, what is it for you, leave your comments and tell me what passion means to you.

Follow your passion, because your passion will not follow you.
