A to Z Challenge - Develop Passion


For the A to Z Challenge, my topic is leadership and goal-setting. I am posting short excerpts from my book, Overcoming Obstacles with SPUNK! The Keys to Leadership and Goal-Setting, along with an inspiring photo. Today this also ties in with The Insecure Writer’s Support Group, hosted by Ninja Captain, Alex J. Cavanaugh. Enjoy and dream big!

Develop Passion

Goals survive and flourish on passion and determination. Those possessing a vision must act with enthusiasm and belief. Organizations thrive when the leader is able to embody its vision. If we are to see our individual dreams come true, we need to exhibit our vision as well.

If we act with conviction, others will follow our vision, too. Our passion must be real and felt from the heart. Believe in your vision and see it clearly, and then watch your dreams come to life!

That's an amazing picture. I hate it when others put people down for having big dreams, but if a person is passionate enough about their dream then they are more likely to succeed :)

I wonder of passion is something that is developed, or whether it's something that's already within the heart, that mysterious creative energy that causes one to develop a plan.

Michelle Pickett said...

It is so true. We need to be passionate about all the things we do in life.

Excellent post,

I expected a cat picture again today but this one is lovely. Sometimes I feel my passion lagging a little and have to work at it.
