Start Living With Passion

Share your love

I love seeing so many young people living with passion and refusing to settle for “just a job.”  What is a job? It’s what you do to pay the bills, but usually, it’s not something that you love to do. It does not matter what it is, but work consumes one-third of your life, and the thought of doing something that you don’t enjoy for one-third of your life should scare the heck out of you!

Be this guy…

You pull up to a tollbooth, and the man working there is playing music, dancing, singing, and having the time of his life. You comment that it looks like he is having fun. His big smile beams as he says, “I have the best job in the world. I get to sing and dance and meet nice people like you every day. I hope that some days, I even make a few people smile.” 

Now, that’s how you do it! How about YOU? Are you living your life with passion?

Something to Think About
When teachers are passionate about learning, students remember their words for life. When servers love what they do, they make each meal more special. When coaches are passionate about coaching, they lead winning teams.
