Passion Matters

What are you passionate about in life? Passion is a powerful and persuasive emotion. It gives you the energy to keep you going.

Passion is a controlling force for achieving your goals. People often ask the question, “What are you passionate about?” What is your answer and how are you making your dreams a reality?

Most people say money, not thinking that their passion can involve just about anything. There are four things you should think about before answering that question:

  1. Identify your passion.
  2. Be honest.
  3. Be reasonable.
  4. Know why.

“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” – Oprah Winfrey.


Maybe you feel that your life choices have taken you away from what you were so passionate about in life and business.

Your decision has you chasing money and not attaining happiness, and now you are feeling unfulfilled. Should you have followed the money over your passion.

Money is a powerful influence. It can keep you stuck in a job. Money also attracts many different emotions such as:

  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Envy
  • Fear
  • Happiness
  • Love
  • Shame


Lack of control is a powerless feeling. It gives out a sense of fear and worries, and it can cause anxiety. Doing things that you loathe simply for the money can cause you to be stressed.

That could be because you are not passionate about it. Continuing to do something you don’t like can cause you to incur health problems that can become long-term.

When you follow your passion, you enjoy what you are doing. That feeling can relax you and relieve stress, leading to a better lifestyle.


When you follow your passion, you feel a level of success and accomplishment. You relax and relish at the peak of happiness, value, and worth.

The pursuit of happiness is in your passion for what you decided to do with your life.

“There is no passion for being found playing small—in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” Nelson Mandela.


There are struggles when trying to stimulate your creative side. When you feel the burden from the work you are doing, you have no interest or passion in it; that is when the struggle becomes real.

There are ways to fuel your passion and creativity:

  • Keep a notebook and write it down.
  • Pay attention.
  • Stimulate your brain.
  • Quit worrying about the risks.
  • Be casual and unreserved.
  • Build confidence and be confident.

When there is passion in the work you are doing, your creative juices are constantly flowing. Your vision is different, and you look for the best in everything.

You become more inclined to boost your creative process.

“If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.” – Benjamin Franklin.


Since you have decided to follow your passion you can enjoy what you do. Your internal reward brings you happiness even though your money may have decreased.

Your health may have gotten better because you now are stress-free with no anxiety.

You no longer go to work with hatred for the job and are no longer miserable, waiting to reach the point of retirement to start enjoying your life.

“Nothing is as important as passion. No matter what you want to do with your life, be passionate.” – Jon Bon Jovi.


Following your passion, will have you seeing your obstacles as opportunities. Passion makes you persistent in achieving great things.

Passionate people are excited about the desire to work. Your passion accelerates you beyond any barriers that may get in your way.

The bottom line is that we all need money to live, but choosing a career makes sure that it brings you happiness. It’s not all about the money.

You really should follow your passion because just working for the money.

Your motivation will be hard to find.

“If you feel like there’s something out there that you’re supposed to be doing if you have a passion for it, then stop wishing and just do it.” – Wanda Sykes.
