The power of passion

When your spirit is battered and your energy is depleted, and you feel like you can’t go on, you can go on. In fact you can surpass all you’ve ever done before and reach a new level of accomplishment.

It is amazing what you can do when you know you must. It is incredible what you can accomplish when it means everything to you.

But how could you ever be that passionate, and so totally committed that you would endure any difficulty in order to reach ever higher? That’s a good question, and one that would be very much worth your time, your thought, your effort to answer.

Somewhere in you is something you sincerely care about enough that you would transcend any obstacle in order to give it life. Somewhere in you is a burning passion ready to be ignited.

You’ll find clues in the things that make you happy, sad, angry, frustrated, joyful, serene, in the things that make you feel most alive. Pay heed to those stirrings, and listen to what they have to say.

The power of passion is somewhere in your life. Let yourself know it and live it.

— Ralph Marston
