The fire burns bright, your motivation peaks, and your curiosity is at new heights. Are you executing? Passion is a human emotion that drives us to act. Passion is the fire starter and the immediate fuel to execute. Like everything in this world, passion will expire. It might last a week, a year, or a century but your interests will change and your passion will fade. Don’t over analyze and miss out on an experience because our life is filled with regrets from things we didn’t do, not the things we did and failed.
Right now, the season is changing and the warmer weather is upon us. Our motivation levels are increasing proportionally to the length of the days. I am writing this to make people act upon that thought that keeps them distracted at work. The thought that keeps coming back no matter what you try to adjust your focus.
Currently, my biggest passion surrounds cycling and athletics. The cycling passion drives every decision in my life. It drives how I eat, how I feel, how I spend money. I don’t try to subdue this passion. I use it to pull me through those tough training sessions and those long rides. When it comes to the weekend there are only two things I want to do; spend time with my beautiful wife and ride my bike.
Asking yourself if something is a passion might seem silly but determining on if it is a true passion or just an interest can be tough. Don’t confuse passion with a strong interest. Interests are what fill the gaps between the times you can execute on your passion. Passion elicits are physical response when you think about it. Your heart rate elevates, your palms start to sweat, you get an excited and nervous buzz. Act on these feelings because passion turns into love. Love is that candle burn that never dies.
