I am captivated by the idea of doing things with passion. It stirs my soul. So, when I recently came across the following excerpt from Pat Williams’ book, “It’s not who you know, it’s who you are”, I thought right away that I needed to put it on this blog. Enjoy and be inspired as you pursue your passion:
“I once had bestselling author Jentezen Franklin (Right People, Right Place, Right Plan) as a guest on my Orlando radio show, and he made a statement that stuck in my mind and that I have quoted often when speaking to audiences: “when you discover your passion in life and pursue it relentlessly, you become like a heat-seeking missile.”
There’s so much truth packed into that one sentence. Think about it. A heat-seeking missile searches for a source of heat, locks onto it, then chases it with single-minded focus. If the heat source moves up, down, or sideways, the missile follow unerringly. When you are passionate about your goals and dreams, you move unerringly toward the target of your passion. That’s why passion is such a powerful ally of success.
It’s not enough simply to set some goals, then methodically plod toward them. You’ve got to get fired up and motivated. Never be content to dwell in the gray margins of life. Become a heat-seeking missile! Live passionately!”
