One of the many reasons why I love to talk on the subject – fueling your passion, is that I have experienced practically what it means to do so. This is one of those topics I can talk freely on for hours and won’t get bored. Recently, I was speaking with a colleague at work, and he asked me a very sincere question-How do you get inspiration to write articles? I just chuckled and gave the very common answer- na God o. But deep down, I knew that being talented is not just enough, you also have to work on whatever talent you have.
Discovering your passion
Discovering what your passion is, isn’t so far-fetched. I like to say, it is that very thing you find yourself always drawn to, that thing you really love doing, and you do so easily without stress. Yes, it’s really that easy to discover. But then after discovering what your passion is, there is a need to understand how to keep fueling it.
In the next section of this post, I will be sharing how to fuel your passion in 3 simple ways.
Simple ways to fuelling your passion
There are various ways in which an individual can actually fuel his passion. Many proven and tested ways, but for ease of understanding and relation, I will be sharing 3 simple ways in which I keep fueling my passion.
Surround yourself with like-minded people that encourage you
This has really helped me in fueling my passion. I know the importance of having a great friendship, and I maximize it a lot. If you want to keep staying motivated and taking giant strides in life, you need to be in the right company. Never allow yourself to stay with people that demoralize you or people that do not believe in you. Look for passion/ vision amplifiers.
Watch what you hear and see
We do not only take in stuff through our mouth, we also take in stuff through what we see and hear. If you want to keep fueling your passion, you need to watch what you hear and see. Never allow negativity around or within you. Mount a personal guard over your space and the things you allow into your heart. The matter of the heart is powerful, for out of it flows the issues of life.
Keep believing in yourself and trusting your process
I love this point so much. One of the things I often tell myself is that I may not have arrived at my desired destination, but I am certainly not where I used to be. If you want to keep fueling your passion, you need to have your self-believe high up. Regardless of what others say or think of you, you need enough self-motivation to go through life.
As I wrap up this post, I am also talking to myself. If you have great dreams and desires in life, if you wish and hope for a brighter tomorrow, then you need to keep fueling your passion, for in due time if you remain consistent, you will get to stand before kings and not mere men.
