They say that lack of passion in life can be fatal. And we agree. Passion in any area of your life is fundamental for happiness. All you need to do is become fearless and stay true to yourself and follow your inner gut. It might not pay in cash, but it’ll pay off in something you can’t put a price tag on. While a bouquet of cheap flowers can make you happy for a couple of days, does it make you content every day all day? Probably not. You can’t buy fulfillment, but you can find it in yourself. Here’s how you can pay yourself in happiness, through passion!
Sense of Security
Passion is energy. Passion is the vibe that keeps flowing. It’s not something that has an ending, which is great because you can always rely on it to be there. Passion is steady and from steadiness comes security. And when we feel secure, we feel more content and inspired to achieve great things.
Ownership of Something Priceless
Skills are great, but having passion is priceless. And because you’ve got such a strong motivation and love for something you are in possession of something that nobody can put a price on. The great thing is, everyone has a passion. You might not know what it is yet, but it’s inside of you which means you’re ready for ownership of something priceless. Aren’t we all just seeking to have something priceless?
Energy to Succeed
And success makes you happier, which is the most real truth. Why is this? Passionate people go all out of their way to succeeding. They are happy when they are doing what they love, and usually, strive for excellence. And then some more. They will do all that it takes and find the right solution, or even more than what’s asked of them, which usually results in success. Which is why it pays off to stay passionate.
Feeling of Power
Doesn’t it feel amazing to do something that you and excites you to your core? That feeling when you decide to follow your gut and take control of your own happiness is priceless and so powerful. A passionate person is determined and inspired enough to do things that no pay cheque could enable them to ever achieve or buy.
Freedom of Spirit
Simply put – there’s nobody forcing you to do anything. Your mind, spirit and body are free to follow their own path. Pursuing a passion for any aspect of your life can be so liberating. It feels as if all shackles have been taken off and you’re able to run without being dragged down by heavy weights.
Sense of Direction
And once you decide to follow your passion, no matter what it is, you can never get lost or side-tracked again. Let’s not get confused, passion doesn’t guarantee you a multi-millionaire business, or a fairy-tale love story, because whatever you do, there will always be ups and downs. However, passion guarantees you that you’re on the right track. And if you know why you’re doing something it makes you feel content and whole.
Think about one thing you’re really passionate about. Like a hobby, or a sport or a job, you like doing. Sure you can buy a pair of shoes or a new gadget that will make you feel ecstatic for a while, but it won’t last long. However, when you’re pursuing something you love, you feel complete all the time. Start feeling great today.
