Words that Inspire: PASSION


What is your PASSION?

Dictionary says:
strong liking for or devotion to some activity, object or concept; object of desire or deep interest; love.

What it REALLY means:
doing something or believing in something that matters to you; making choices based on something that energizes you and excites you; one of the reasons you enjoy getting up in the morning and doing what you do.

Why it MATTERS?
Incorporating PASSION into your life and work feels good. Excitement replaces drudgery; Meaningful replaces 'so what?'; 'Want to' replaces 'should do'.

Questions that INSPIRE:

? What is your PASSION? What action, belief, vision or object excites and interests you?

? What would it feel like if this PASSION was a part of your life every day?

? How is that feeling different from now?

? What one step can you take today which will make your PASSION more a part of your life or your work?
