Passion & Humility

You want passion in your life? You want ownership of everything you’ve ever dreamed of, including love? Stop talking about it and start taking action. No one ever promised life would be a cake walk. To want, that’s just desire. It’s knowing WHAT you want and what you’re willing to sacrifice to get it. It’s waking up every day and when your feet hit the floor or out the door, the whole world says; “Holy crap! You mean business!” You’re on a mission and you won’t take no for an answer.

All those struggles and heartache to get there? It’s all worth it. Every second of it. So take hold of it, shake it, and stir it up, because life isn’t a dress rehearsal. It’s a one and done and bam, curtains closed. And you’re the lead character.

But here’s the kicker and truly the only way you’ll ever appreciate the fruits of success. When you’ve achieved all of your life goals, remember where and how it all started, all the hard work it took to get there. Because of all the terms we use to describe others or ourselves, the most virtuous of all is “humility.”

We come into this world totally dependent upon another human being for survival. We leave this world placing our life in the hands of the One who brought us here to begin with. Everything we do in between, all the diplomas, medals, and honors we obtain, all the material possessions, all the titles and awards, all of that and more, they mean nothing unless accepted and abided by with a gracious and humble attitude.

It’s how we make each other feel that’s important. To be respected, validated, and loved. When you do that, and the curtain closes on your life, people will remember you as one who led and lived “a good life.”

I’ll leave this one to help you REMEMBER….:)
