In the past week or so I seem to keep hearing about this word called “passion.” Basically, the talk has centered around one of two things. One asks the question what is your passion. The other says that people should try to figure out their passion, and if they can then that’s the business they should be in, and they’ll make more money because they’re passionate about it.

My wife and I were talking about it this week, and she asked me what my passion was. I said I didn’t have one right now, and she said that’s a problem. I then said she was my passion, and I asked her if I were her passion; she said no. Never ask a question you’re not sure you want to hear the answer for. 🙂

Then my friend John Dilbeck wrote this post based on his series of answering questions based on Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich book. His question was Do you have an aim in life and a plan for achieving it? I had to answer that I really don’t have a passion at this point in time, but I used to have one, so I’m going to work on figuring out what another one is.

It’s an interesting thing, this question of passion. Passion is what helps get the blood flowing. Passion is what helps to make you feel like you’re a part of something special. Passion gives you the energy needed to do whatever it is you need or want to do. When you don’t have passion, sometimes you feel like you’re just going through the motions. It can keep some people from doing anything at all.

Luckily, I’m not in that boat. But I will admit that over the past 8 or 9 months I’ve wondered about this thing called passion. I know I had it; I’m betting, if I sit down and think about it long enough, I’ll also figure out where it went. I also know that if I had it once I’ll have it again.

And when I do find it again… watch out world!
