Are the above emotions we have lost? Where has all the passion gone? (No, I’m not talking about THAT passion). Are we numb to the idea of a fire in our belly, so that we only think of those words as something we need to pop a pill for?
In Dave Ramsey’s book, More Than Enough, he asks: “Why do we not get fired up anymore about anything except sports? Have we become so “civilized that we don’t care enough to feel intensity about anything? People seem to be walking around with vacancy signs in their eyes: ‘Nobody’s home.” Hey with some folks it looks like there isn’t even anyone coming up the driveway.”
If you want to reach a goal, overcome stumbling blocks, stand up for a cause, or prosper, then you need to find your intensity. Dig down deep and examine what you are passionate about! Without that fire, that passion, you will not have the strength to succeed.
Your goals flow from your vision and what you value in life. No one is immune to challenges. “The key to life is accepting challenges. . . . If you don’t like where you are, you have to change what you have been doing.”
Quit doing the same thing over and over again without success!
Here’s an assignment: write on a piece of paper that you can easily read:
“If I don’t like where I am, then change what I am doing.”
Then, every morning, read that statement to determine if you are still on the right path. Don’t keep going down the wrong path! Follow the lead of successful people and go down that road less traveled!!
Put all your energy, passion, abilities into daily living and arrive sooner at your ultimate goal!
Until next time,
