4 Abundant Ways To Add FIRE To Your Passion!
How many times have you found yourself dreaming you
were more passionate?
What makes certain people so passionate? How come they seem
to be on-fire for their cause? Why do enthusiastic people
become leaders we are willing to follow?
Maybe you once had a burning desire inside of your heart. If
you have ever hoped to add more fuel to the F.I.R.E. of
living then perhaps these four simple steps will light-up,
add a spark, ignite and fan the flames for you.
F = Find the Fantastic
Many of us go through life losing sight of our original
dream. Sometimes, the daily grind saps the strength of our
Other times, we allow major challenges, roadblocks and
difficulties to drain the power from our fantasies. Whatever
the cause, it is up to us to find ways to keep the boldness
and eagerness of our most inspiring goals alive.
By seeking out and accepting the fantastic qualities of your
dreams and visions, you can increase your own passion for
=> Is your dream full of wonder and glamour?
=> Does your dream shine brightly or reflect a brilliance?
=> Are there other people who have a similar dream, if so,
are those people considered to be "great"?
I = Invest & Inspect
Wouldn't it be nice if we could go to sleep and wake up
filled with passion and energy? I prefer to be lazy and look
for ways to avoid hard work whenever possible.
But there is a law that must be obeyed, it goes something
like this: you will reap what you sow. The lottery ads say
it best: "to win it, you have to be in it!"
=> How much time do you invest in feeding your dream?
=> How much effort do you invest in building your dream?
=> How many of your assets and resources are you investing
into your dream?
=> How close are you to realizing your dream, how often and
how much do you inspect and measure your progress?
R = Reach Up, Reach In, Reach Out
The Pastor of my church uses these 3 actions to encourage
our spiritual growth. He knows we humans need to perform all
three to be successful in our pursuits.
Passionate people reach up to their higher power because
they know, trust in and rely on their God supplies them with
guidance, wisdom and strength.
Enthusiasm means having the inspired God within. You can
take hold of and attain a powerful enthusiastic attitude.
If you are willing to reach inside yourself and let that
godly inspiration of His love, Will and His Being come
inside you, you too will catch His passion [that's why Mel
Gibson called his movie, "The Passion..."]
When you reach out to help others, you will be blessed as
well. That is a spiritual law that wealthy, faithful and
intelligent people have followed throughout history.
For proof, look at all the charitable gifts or foundations,
winners of the Nobel Peace prize and acts of heroism
performed in the world today.
E = Entertain & Energize Yourself
Very few people think of entertaining their fantasies, yet
people of passion use those techniques to keep their
watch lights burning.
You have to maintain your guard over and sustain your watch
of your dreams. The interruptions and pollution of daily
life will try to distract you.
Those poisoned whisperings of the dark side want you to buy
what they are selling.
You can ignore and avoid yielding to the influences of
negativity by running the films of dreams in your mind over
and over again.
You must entertain, energize and indulge your fantasy by
=> Putting up, looking at and studying the pictures, images
and imaginings of your desired objective
=> Repeating the affirmed beliefs of your hope to yourself
out loud and frequently
=> Talking the talk and walking the walk of your vision -
acting, thinking, speaking just like you already have
achieved your goals
Energy comes from the mass of serious efforts - be stern
with your heart and mind, entertain their future prospects.
The starting point of all achievement is desire. Use the
F.I.R.E. of your desires to heat up and excite the passion
that is deep within you.
I love using my quiet times and places of solitude to boost
the temperature of my enthusiasm. You might need to use a
different method but my favorite one is the "entertain and
Successful people have employed these tools to super-charge
their passionate attitudes, when you try, you'll discover
you can too.
Take time to stoke the F.I.R.E. of your passion today!
"On a Fine Morning", you will want to heed the words of
"Whence comes solace? Not from seeing,
What is doing, suffering, being;
Not from noting Life's conditions,
Not from heeding Time's monitions;
But in cleaving to the Dream
And in gazing at the Gleam
Whereby gray things golden seem."
