From the time I was very young, I’ve been drawn to living a passionate life – no matter what gets in the way.
I’ve also had a solid purpose to impact people’s lives while living a passionate life positively. Something can be challenging to archive 100% of the time. But isn’t that the point of Passion and Purpose? Isn’t it something that you just DO?
Amazingly, for all the focus on living a purposeful and passion-filled life, there has been very little research. A solid definition has only been agreed upon in the last few years – and it says a lot. I’ll let it speak for itself.
Passion is defined as a strong inclination toward an activity that people like, find important, and in which they invest time and energy.
Purpose is defined as a stable and generalized intention to accomplish something personally meaningful and, at the same time, leads to productive engagement with some aspect of the world beyond the self.
As I’ve always said, “If you don’t know your purpose, your purpose is to find your purpose.”
And the best way to do that is to follow your passion. (Read the above description again for more impact)
Purpose and Passion. It’s like Chocolate and Peanut Butter.
