Passion is the fuel that drives us to create and fulfill our soul’s yearning. Passionate folks believe in themselves above and beyond what anyone tells them. They don’t follow their ego as much as they follow their heart’s desires. Awareness and acceptance are key to their success in everything they do. Sitting with folks from different backgrounds, I recognize there are several distinctive traits that set passionate people from the norm.
Vulnerability is the secret to bravery. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. The difference between a person who lives in victim mode and one who has passion is the courage they carry in their hearts. Passionate people are are survivors. They aren’t sitting around licking their wounds from the past. They fall and get right back up. This also doesn’t negate that they hurt and get disappointed just like everyone else. They just choose to get up and keep going. They kick fear’s ass over and over.
Passionate people aren’t sitting there waiting for things to happen. They are seeing possibilities all around them. Excitement creates a positive vibe that ignites their search for more. They get excited about the challenges, adventures, and the journey that they will be on. Follow joy and excitement. Enjoy the process. Get giddy about the little things and much as the large experiences.
I find that those who have passion live in a state of joy because they are always following the present moment. They are grateful for all that they have. If you want to live in joy try keeping a gratitude journal. I write down every night three things that I’m grateful for that happened in my day. Gratitude allows you to see the small things. A single shift from disappointment to gratitude can change your entire perspective.
And in the end it’s love. Those who have passion in their lives do it through love. You cannot speak of passion without returning to the source of love. Passionate people love themselves and others. They move through love and share it with the world. They are those who believe in humanitarian causes and fight till the end helping make this earth a better place. They come into this life ready to make changes and nothing stops them. Love is the ultimate motivator for the passionate soul. They know that without the innate desire to change and evolve, there is no doing. Love is the match that lights passion.
Passionate people don’t sit around feeling stuck. They are the trailblazers, doers and movers, the leaders, the mothers and fathers, the brothers and sisters, that all unite to make this place a better haven for the rest of us. These people don’t wait to be told what to do. They are the ones moving a mountain one teaspoon of dirt at a time. They are patient, determined, and generous. The best habit that a passionate person owns is the knowing that this life is here to make the most out of it. They know that in order to be happy, successful and loving there must be desire and the will to see past anything in the future. This is what separates the passionate person from those who do not follow their hearts.
Now you…what’s stopping you from following your passion? What old belief system has to be deleted for you to recognize that to get to your dreams you must manifest through passion?
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style” – Maya Angelou
