“Passion Is our Fuel.”
Anyone that knows me has hopefully felt my passion. I am passionate about family, TLC and losing myself in the service of others. I have such a passion for these things that sometimes I am sure it may be overwhelming for some to be around me, but I can’t help it.
When someone is passionate about something, it is obvious. You can not only hear it and see it, but you can feel it as well. A passionate person can inspire others to stop and listen, and that is what I hope to do every day. It helps keep me focused and energized always!
You may be passionate about something, and I think that is great. If you have found something that gets you excited and pursue it every day, you are exceptionally blessed; congratulations. I feel blessed and am very grateful that my days are filled with the things I am passionate about.
What are you passionate about? Does it excite you and fill you with energy? I understand! I also know that whatever you are passionate about is something you were meant to be passionate about while here on earth; I believe that 100%, and I am sure you do too.
I recently learned that the word passion has a deeper meaning that I was unaware of, and since then, the word passion has meant something deeper to me. After I share why you may permanently see the word passion differently.
Passion has a Latin root and means something much deeper than we think. Most of us, including me, have always thought that passion means having enthusiasm or excitement for something to the point that we can’t get enough, and this belief is partially true.
What I recently came to know that has made me appreciate my passions even more, is that the Latin meaning of passion loosely means that someone would be willing to endure pain or suffering to do it. When I read this, it stopped me in my tracks. I asked myself, “Would I be willing to endure pain and suffering for my family, TLC, and serving others?”
I realized quickly that the answer was YES! So, I guess I am passionate about those things in the true sense of the word. I was so happy to learn this; I feel truly passionate now more than ever.
What about you, are you willing? Are you willing to endure pain, suffering, inconvenience, hardship, etc., for the things you think you are passionate about? If so, then welcome to the club; you are truly passionate!
At TLC, we are willing to suffer any hardship to help people make a total life change. We have so many people who have adopted a passion for this that it is hard not to feel inspired to become passionate with them. At TLC, passion is our fuel and something we would suffer to do! We are blessed to have amazingly passionate men and women here that are genuinely passionate!
We are getting close to ending another year, and as we get closer to 2022, I have a question for you. Have you found your passion? If so, are you sure you would endure pain and suffering for it? If the answer is yes to both, then you are right. If the answer is no, I suggest you use the rest of 2021 to figure out your passion and get ready to focus on that in 2022 and beyond.
They say, “No pain, no gain.” I agree, so find out what you would be willing to endure pain for and start doing it! Thank you for reading every week, and thanks for being passionate about something! We believe passionate people can change the world at TLC, and we are doing it!
