Passion Is Key To Achievement


If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.

– Bishop T. D JAKES

We are not on this earth to merely exist, but to thrive and lead a fulfilling satisfying life even as we make meaningful contributions to the human family. This goal can only be achieved if we build our lives around what we are passionate about.

When we talk about passion, we mean doing any work that excites and gets your creative juices flowing. It’s loving the work that you do.

It’s important to discover your passion because without it, you will not amount to anything in this world. You will drift aimlessly on the currents of life and achieve little or nothing at all.

Success comes to those who find passion in the work they do. When you are passionate about what you do, you will give it your best efforts.

When you are passionate about what you do, it gives you the confidence to do it. It gives you the power to think creatively and find new ways to deal with any challenges that may cross your path. 

Obstacles are seen as unavoidable. Instead of lamenting and getting discouraged, obstacles are seen as the stepping stones to success.

Challenges notwithstanding, they pursue their dreams with a persistent and courageous attitude. They are also optimistic about the outcome of their struggles.

They have the belief that when passion and enthusiasm are present, they become unstoppable.  They do not allow criticisms or the negative opinions of others put limits on the pursuit of their dreams.

Passion is what drives people to excel in whatever they do. It is what brings out the best in a person. We can always find fulfillment in the work that we are passionate about.

Passion sets you on fire. You will work like crazy until your goal is achieved. 

Passion can translate into an improved quality of life for you and for others. Working with passion is infectious as others get inspired to emulate.

Would you not like to associate yourself with someone who is passionate about their jobs? You cannot sit on the fence in the presence of a passionate person at work. They attract admiration from a lot of people.

Passion engenders hard work. Vera Wang said it best when she said, “When you have a passion for something then you tend not only to be better at it, but you work harder at it too.” They will work relentlessly until they achieve their goal.

Passion is important. Without it, success will continue to elude you.

Most people develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills as a result of their adherence to their passions and the work they do. They may fail or make horrible mistakes, but they learn the lessons and keep moving forward.

How do you find your passion? This is a legit question.

Without a passion, you have no purpose. Without a purpose, you are leading a wasted life.

When it comes to great accomplishments, passion counts. Leadership expert, John C. Maxwell, expressed  this sentiment when he said, “A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.” It is passion that enables you to touch the lives of others and leave a meaningful legacy for current and future generations.

What do you do so well and effortlessly that people praise you for?  This may be a clue to your passion.

What have you been longing to do, but procrastinating? What sets you on fire? What makes you wake up early in the morning?

What do you love doing? What work would you do even if you won’t be paid? 

How do you want to be remembered when your time on this earth is finally up? What tributes would you won’t to hear from your loved ones before your casket is lowered into your grave?

Your answers to the aforementioned questions will help you find your passion and then your purpose. The pursuit of your passion with commitment and dedication can make a world of difference in your life.

When you find passion in what you do, it could start out as a hobby but which you could monetize to earn a decent living. Examples abound in academia, arts, science, sports and musical industry.

When you do any work with passion, you could be a world changer. If you are not inspired by passion, there is nothing you would do with conviction.

Here is a profound quote from Travis Bradberry to conclude my thoughts, “Grit is that ‘extra something’ that separates the most successful people from the rest. It’s the passion, perseverance, and stamina that we must channel in order to stick with our dreams until they become a reality.”
