To be aware of a single shortcoming in oneself is more useful than to be aware of a thousand in someone else.

Expressing passion

Passion is not something to be found. It is something to be expressed. You cannot find your passion by searching for some person, place, interest or activity outside of yourself. Rather, you express your passion within the context of your own life and the world in which you live.

Certain things can ignite your passion and help you to more fully express it. Yet the passion itself exists within you and is always there, no matter what happens on the outside.

Instead of going in search of your passion, seek to put your passion into everything you do. Even the most mundane task can be spectacularly fulfilling when you approach it with passion. Rather than searching to find the right job, the right moment, the right place or circumstance, put your passion into whatever you have right now.

You’ll experience true passion the moment you stop looking for it and start living it.
