Deep down the source of energy and drive lies in the passion of the heart. One would spend more time and effort on those things you truly value and cherish than your energy levels actually allow when you
believe in what you do. Passion grows on the inner drive that provides vigour.
The challenge is to identify that drive as early in life as possible. Then it can start to germinate, root and spout to become a passion.
No success or achievement is possible without passion. How can you pursue significance without something you believe in. There cannot be drive or energy if you do not actively strive to satisfy your love for that which you believe in.
If you express your passion in art, paint for your passion, not for the people. If it is in dance, do it with and for your heart, not for the sake of the audience. If it is building or restoring, do it to fulfil your vision and not for approval.
Passion gives purpose, direction and a sense of accomplishment. That is the “why” in chasing your dream.
