Passion is the catalyst that drives the wheel of your progress in life. Life is a mixture of the good, bad and ugly. There are times you wake up and all of a sudden you feel like just giving up trying to succeed in life. That is expected, as it is a signal that you need to re-fuel your passion.
The big question is: How can one ignite or fuel his / her passion daily? I can not admit to having all the answer to this important question, but I will be sharing some tips I have picked up in my short journey through entrepreneurship.
Go to God
The Almighty God is like a stream of living water flowing over dry land. As many that are thirsty, are free to go to the stream and get filled. That is exactly what I do when I am in dire need of inspiration to fuel my passion. I go to God in prayer asking him for renewed passion to continue on my march toward success. If we are sincere in going to him in prayer, there would be a definite change in our daily routine. We can also fuel our passion when we go to God in quiet meditation of his word. The word of God is loaded with enough fuel for our entire journey on planet earth. when we are down, discouraged, fearful or disappointed, there is always a space in the arm of God to run to for divine energy.
When we stay too long in a particular place, it can become so boring and uninspiring. We can do ourselves a world of good via changing of environment. Go to a new city for some few days and have a feel of some fresh air. This will no doubt fuel your passion and enthusiasm. You can also change apartment, by moving to somewhere more comfortable or cozy. The natural environment has an aesthetic feeling which helps to inspire those who are creative enough to understand its importance .. This is the main reason why some talented individual go to great length in visiting some quiet resort, island or mountain for daily inspiration.
change your daily routine
If you are going through the same routine daily and you expect higher level of result, it may never happen. One of the ways of optimizing our performance and propelling our passion for excellence is through constant change of routine and techniques. When we get too used to a particular method of doing things, we will not have passion to go for higher heights. If you are fond of reading only one book per day, try reading two. Instead of driving home in your car daily, while not trying walking home if the distance is a bit okay or taking a public transport. You will be amazed by the numerous ideas that will flow in as you change your routine. If we are too rigid towards new ideas, it will be impossible for us to fuel our passion. That is the main reason why some talented individuals after blazing the spotlight for few years soon fade away, because they could not agree with new trends and technologies.
