What is Passion?

Passion is that FIRE of energy that you may feel deep inside you when you really love something. It connects the wires of the brain and the heart so tightly that you never get tired of the thing you do. It’s a mysterious and resilient emotional connection with the activity, goal, cause, or whatever you want to do in life. When you have it, it becomes the fuel that excites you to plow through any challenges no matter their size.

Your Dose of Inspiration

It is a time well invested to work hard and long to discover your passion. Because when you find it, it will keep you productive, happy, and alive. Doing activities in the area of your passion gives you this genuine feeling of joy and satisfaction.
