Value 6 – Passion


This group of posts are meant as inspiration and motivation for you to work on making your values and goals achievable. Sometimes we want something for ourselves, but we set the bar so high that we strive all our lives and never seem to be able to reach our goals. I don’t want to spend my life striving for something that I may reach when Im 80 when I can change the wording and enjoy reaching it everyday. I’ll tell you how.

I see people everyday walking around with their heads down, shoulders forward looking like nothing matters to them. I see people with angry faces walking down the street with no aim for their anger – it’s just the way their face is used to look. I guess it has become a habit.

Luckily, I see people with fire in their eyes too. I see people who can’t sit still because they strive for what they do and they are excited as little kids about the difference they are making. They keep their heads up and shoulders back and their lips in a perfect, honest, deep smile. These are the passionate people. I find them in every corner of society. Teachers, Coffee Makers, Entrepreneurs, Designers, Business Men, Students, Artists, Sales People – you name it.

Passion is powerful. Passion can move mountains and create fairytales in real life.

For me, passion is inside of me. Just around my solar plexus I feel this vibrating feeling that spreads out through my body to my hands and feet. It makes me feel alive and it makes me creative in finding a way even when it looks impossible. Because that’s another thing about passionate people. Even if they did have one of those days where everything seemed far too complicated and most things went wrong, they would never take their heads down, they would never let their shoulders pop forward.

I live my value Passion whenever it tickles in my tummy, whenever I keep my head high, whenever I can’t help doing something because it excites me and whenever I feel like singing out loud from pure happiness.

Passion makes my wheels go ’round. I need it like a drug. I am fortunate to know a bunch of other addicts too and my network keeps increasing. If you haven’t been in a passionate setting yet, I can recommend it. Find some people who share your passion or have passions of their own. It is awesome and I promise you will leave with your head up, shoulders back and an urge to sing out loud.
