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 hopes.

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 realizing them:

=> 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 energize" technique.

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 Thomas Hardy:

"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."
