(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Passion is an interesting word because it has so many uses and meanings, accurate and colloquial. As used here, passion describes a basic energy or life force.

Do you remember how it is when you see someone who is passionate about something? The passion is in their eyes, their voice, the energy they radiate. It matters not if their passion is for a job, a relationship, an activity, or a hobby; when they have it, you can feel it.

In contrast, living your life without passion is dull, uninspiring. Imagine slogging through a passionless day. Imagine never having passion again. How you feel when you imagine that is the exact opposite of what passion feels like.

The bad news is, no one can give you passion. The good news is, you don t need anybody to give you passion. You can grow it yourself.

Get that passion is a fundamental life force and you ll look for it. Look for it and you ll experience it. Experience it and you ll demand it.
