Hope everyone is having a great start to the week! Sometimes I just get so fired up about a topic it simply cannot wait till the weekend, I just have to write it now. This is why I love writing so much because no one has to motivate me to do this. It is a fire that burns within me and compels me every day to write and think deeply about the many wonders of life. And that is exactly what I want to talk about today, the fire that burns within each and every one of us.
First things first, WHAT IS YOUR PASSION?
People ask and reply to this question all the time. Replies vary from dancing or reading or maybe cooking. But I’m serious, really, dig down deep inside and search for that PASSION that drives you in life. If you find something that you think is your passion in life but people have to motivate you to do it or maybe you have to drag yourself to accomplish a task then guess what…THAT IS SO NOT YOUR PASSION.
Your passion will be like a RAGING fire within you.
It will be something that you can’t ignore or that you can put to the side because it is the very essence of you. Find that passion and most importantly GO for it. Don’t just let it rage on within you and have you day dreaming all day. You have got to put it into action and make that passion and those dreams a reality.
Now that we have our passion in mind and we are very tapped into that raging fire within let’s move on to something else.
What will accompany this passion is your POTENTIAL.
The insurmountable potential that lies within you. Sometimes we will have these big dreams and this raging fire that is just yearning to burst out of you, but we don’t realize our potential. Or for that matter even recognize that there is any potential within us.
But trust me; we all have potential lingering within us right along with that raging passion. For example. We all know what it feels like to be envious at times. Sometimes we envy other’s success or maybe possessions they have. I feel like one cause for feeling envy over someone else is that you see a potential that lies within yourself but you aren’t utilizing it.
Let’s say you love to cook and aspire to be a chef.
Although you have this big dream, you feel you are too shy and could never have your own cooking show. Then one day, your close friend, who also aspires to be a chef, gets a cooking show on Food Network. You then feel very envious of her and this opportunity she has. BUT WHY? It’s because the potential she is exhibiting is the very same potential that lies within you; you are just choosing to ignore it.
If you had another close friend that became the master champion of riding a unicycle and got into the Guinness Book Of World Records, would you be envious? Unless you have a hidden passion for riding a unicycle then most likely NOT. Sometimes we feel emotion that we call envy, because it’s as if we are staring at a version of ourselves that we long to be.
I was talking with my mom the other day and we were talking about potential. We were talking about when you highlight something in a book, a quote or sentence that really spoke to you, that the reason you did so is because it is something pulling you from within. It’s not that you have never seen a quote like that or it is totally new to you, it’s your inner passions, potential and higher self speaking out an acknowledging something you already know.
Generally, this freaks people out though.
To think they have this higher self about them and that they could actually have all of these talents stewing inside of them. So we turn on the noise of life. Cell phones, TV, Radio or senseless magazines.
But in order to really unlock that inner potential and that passion just blazing inside of you, you need to STOP and LISTEN. When you see a quote that really speaks to you, analyze why that is. When you feel envious of someone, think what potential that person is exhibiting that you know you have. And when you feel the urge to go for a dream, DO NOT let yourself second guess yourself. Because that’s your passion, potential and fire just begging to break free and show the light of your potential.
Once you let that potential, passion, success, fire and talent out of the box, your life will never be the same. You will feel no envy of others success because you will be living your passion and making your way to the top. I know the world we live in doesn’t always foster quiet time and time to look within and search your soul. But you must CREATE it. After all, your divine path lies within you, but you have to be the one to make the first step.
Have a great week!
Quote of the day:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
