Passion is truly experienced when we love what we do, and know that we are changing lives and making a contribution to others. We can push persons to excel in something, but if they are not passionate about what they are doing, there will be no joy in it for them. “You have to be burning with an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right. If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you’ll never stick it out.” – Steve Jobs.
What steals our passion from us? We look at the negative side of everything. The glass is always half empty and never half full. People are jealous and would like us to believe we will never succeed.
We should avoid those who steal our passion through their negative spirit. When you are passionate about something you will be completely committed to it. There is no effort in succeeding, it just comes naturally. Even when the journey is tough, our passion helps us go through it without needing people to carry us all the way.
I hope that we are also this passionate about ensuring that the people we care for will be joining us in Heaven one day. It will be sad if there is no eternal value connected to our passion.
