Sustained Passion

August 1, 2011

It’s not enough to just to be “interested” in something.  It becomes too easy to go through the motions and rush to the finish line when one is casually interested.  Joy, on the other spectrum, is fleeting.  Thus, we must seek and forge sustained passion.

Is passion a does-not-pay-the bills cliché?  We cannot let it become a self-help cliché.  Do not succumb to the ubiquitous I am Ultra Unique Syndrome.  No one cares.  We don’t have time to waste so we must focus like it’s the only that matters.  The one thing.

It is through our inevitable struggles where our passions can emerge like a powerful phoenix from the black ashes.  Passion self-generates and buoys you up through life’s rolling and crashing waves.  The entrepreneurial “niche” is the market-differentiating version of passion.  An artist’s belabored medium is the manifestation of their passion.  An athlete’s daily, muscle-wrenching practice is the embodiment of their passion.

It is through creating and living our passion that we experience deep-hearted joy.  Delicious delight.

“To discover the mode of life or of art whereby my spirit could express itself in unfettered freedom.” James Joyce
