Passion is an intense emotion, a compelling enthusiasm or desire, it is that thing that wakes you in the morning springing you out of the bed and keeps you up late at night focused on accomplishing all that you have set out to do. Passion is what fuels the purpose and marries the two to change potential to a fulfilled promise! Passion is the catalyst that sparks our hopes, dreams, and aspirations and drives you to achieve the unbelievable, obtain the unthinkable, and shatter any notions of doubt and fear. What you are passionate about is what has been inbred in you and powers the journey ahead. What is that you are passionate about?
Whatever you are passionate about, that one thing in this world you literally would do for free if there were no obstacles or fear of failure, follow it, pursue it, live in it, for it is there that you will not only find purpose, but also walk in God’s promise for your life. God has given each of us specific talents and specific tools to accomplish a specific task. Do not waste your tools or let them go rusty! Walk in your purpose and feed off your passion; the promise will not come back void!
I challenge each of you to trust whatever it is that moves you and excites you, research it, study it, practice it, and use it! It is there for a reason, so stop running from it and denying it. Live the life that was purposed for you and soak up every bit of it. Let your passion light up the world and all you encounter leaving a mark that will transcend and surpass your wildest fantasies. You are more than if only you believe.
Living on #Purpose fueled by #Passion and striving towards #Destiny. Have you found your passion? Are you ready to channel it to achieve your dreams?
“ Follow your passion, be prepared to work hard and sacrifice, and, above all, don’t let anyone limit your dreams.” ~ Donovan Bailey
If it doesn’t enrich your life, bring value, or challenge you to stretch beyond what you thought was possible, it is not needed. ~ BrotherWord
Greatness is only obtained by those that strive for it. If you are waiting for change, waiting for opportunity, waiting for something spectacular to happen, you are fooling yourself. Great things happen to those that prepare and position themselves to pounce when the possibility arises.
Passion fuels the fire, but preparation wins the battle. Prepare like never before and will yourself to victory. This is the biggest test you will ever take and you possess everything you need to triumph. Do not accept anything but your best and do not leave it to others to do what you can do yourself. Your circle may get smaller, but your vision will get larger. The challenges you accept today will certainly shape your future and change you in ways unimaginable – great ways.
“You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don’t. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly.” ~ Rumi
Talent alone won’t make you a success. Neither will being in the right place at the right time, unless you are ready. The most important question is: ‘Are your ready?’ ~ Johnny Carson
: the reason why something is done or used : the aim or intention of something
: the feeling of being determined to do or achieve something
: the aim or goal of a person : what a person is trying to do, become, etc.
: the object toward which one strives or for which something exists
Each person is created with a purpose, but it is up to each individual to accept their purpose. Purpose provides clarity and direction and is essential to discovering one’s self. Ever wonder why some things come easier than others, why you’re drawn to certain aspects of life, why you become fixated? It is because your purpose is screaming to come alive and merge with your passion.
Take the time to develop your passion. It will guide you in the direction your life has been destined. The passion that boils deep within is the beginning of discovery, declaration, and determination. Discover what you’re good at, what peeks your interest. Declare to be the best you can be at it and don’t let anything or anyone discourage or deter you. Be determined that no matter what, you will see it to the end.
Today is the day that you embrace your purpose and live out your destiny!
The City They Tried to Forget…
There are simply some things in life you have no control over and despite every effort, cannot control. 8 years ago to the day, the city I love and cherish, my birthplace and stomping ground, was devastated and almost wiped from existence. Touching down during the early morning hours, the storm flooded 80% of the city, destroying the levee system, and turned a vibrant city into wasteland. The aftermath that ensued left many homeless, helpless, and hopeless. What happened next was worse.
