Passion is the gasoline that will make your engine run.
When you do something with passion, you do it with a little something special that makes your actions better.
“The saddest people I’ve ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all. Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary, because there’s nothing to make it last.”
– Nicholas Sparks
Passion is one of the key to happiness.
When you have passion for what you do, you can’t play small. You want to play as big as your dream let you create it.
“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
– Nelson Mandela
When you get up with a smile.
When you are happy to work.
When you are motivated to do a little more at the end of the day.
That’s when you can guess you’re on the right path.
We need to find a way to make a living.
Doing so, we end up selling our time.
Most of us will work at any jobs just to earn more.
We choose a job in relation with what we want to earn.
“Don’t let making a living prevent you from making a life.”
– John Wooden
Find what you like.
Find a way to do what you like and earn a living doing it.
You could end up struggling to earn with what you like.
You’ll see that it’s worth it in the end.
You can also find something you like in your present job and do your best to focus on that. Become the best with it and earn a living doing it. Without the need to change your job.
Only the courageous will dare to hope.
Only the people who takes actions dare to hope.
“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”
– Helen Keller
If you hope without taking any actions. It’s not hope, its wishful thinking.
Bring hope to others. Be the person who did believe that it can be done. Be the source of energy that someone needed to keep going on with their dreams.
“Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A world of optimism and hope. A ‘you can do it’ when things are tough.”
– Richard M. DeVos
Be a source of change in the world.
Everything takes time to build.
Every trip start with one step.
“A jug fills drop by drop.”
How to realize your goals:
- Choose what you want.
- Write it down on paper.
- Take action with what feels good. Take the first step.
- Be consistent. Keep going on.
Many things can be said on how to achieve your goal, but if you keep it short those 4 steps are the basic.
“The journey of a thousand leagues begins with a single step. So we must never neglect any work of peace within our reach, however small.”
– Adlai E. Stevenson
Action in the right direction is all you need to get closer to your goal.
Remember, you need to know where you want to go before you take actions. How can you hit the target if you don’t look in the direction of the target?
Feeling helpless is very bad. What can you do to overcome it?
First, we must understand that it’s not a dead end. It’s a feeling and you can change it.
There’s no automatic way to change that feeling. You’ll have to choose to work on it and take action to do so.
“We are all ordinary. We are all boring. We are all spectacular. We are all shy. We are all bold. We are all heroes. We are all helpless. It just depends on the day.”
– Brad Meltzer
You have what you need to change that feeling of helplessness. Don’t wait for someone else to do it for you. They can’t.
Most people don’t want to talk about helplessness.
It’s there in the heart of a lot of people. Denying it will not resolve that situation.
We all felt that feeling. No one is immune to it.
Let’s face reality and do our best to help those who are stuck in it.
Love and compassion is the way to go.
If you find yourself in a situation where you need to show some compassion and you don’t, take some time to think about it. Reassure yourself that it’s ok to show compassion even if the person in front of you doesn’t deserve it. You don’t have to be the one to choose if you compassion is justified or not.
You don’t have to do a lot. Just a warm friendly smile can be enough.
“I work really hard at trying to see the big picture and not getting stuck in ego. I believe we’re all put on this planet for a purpose, and we all have a different purpose… When you connect with that love and that compassion, that’s when everything unfolds.”
– Ellen DeGeneres
You can never go wrong with love.
Don’t expect anything. Just give it away.
“Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep. The only way to retain love is to give it away.”
– Elbert Hubbard
Leaders do what they say.
“As a leader, it is so important that your words equal your actions. It is imperative that you make sure that you go through a self-evaluation process on an almost daily basis to make sure that your actions are in line with your words. You must do what you say and say what you do.”
– Jon Gordon
Leaders are examples of what they say. If their actions differ from what they say, they lose all influence they had.
No one will be fooled by a false leader.
When you waste your reputation as a leader, it’s very hard to get it back.
Even if you don’t have any goal to become a leader, you should do what you say anyway.
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
You are beautiful when you think, say and do in harmony.
“It’s not the face, but the expressions on it. It’s not the voice, but what you say. It’s not how you look in that body, but the thing you do with it. You are beautiful.”
– Stephenie Meyer
