Do you have passion?
According to the Oxford Dictionary, passion means a strong and barely controllable emotion, as well as, an intense desire or enthusiasm for something.
I believe that we all have at least one talent- that one or more things we can do exceptionally well than others- our talents are our strengths. I also believe that we have talents that ignite that intense desire, the ones I call “passion talents,” and those are the ones we should maximize the use and potential of.
We can either turn our “passion talents” into profit-making or charity ventures or even a hobby! Wouldn’t you rather do that than be stuck doing something that makes you miserable?
I have learnt that the more I do things I am passionate about, is the more happiness I foster in my life. I have started to focus more on the things I love to do. It is not a new concept, but it has been reiterated on numerous occasions by entrepreneurs, motivational speakers, and life coaches. Business mogul, Richard Branson, in his article “Richard Branson’s 5 Rules for Good Business” listed rule number one as “If you don’t enjoy it, don’t do it. You must love what you do.” I think we should follow a similar principle in most aspects of our lives, not just pertaining to business, thereby improving the overall quality of life.
What better time to make a positive change than the beginning of a year – add it to your new year’s resolution list- love what you do by utilizing your passion talents!
