MM&I Header

November 12, 2012 - Are you allowing your passion to excite and empower others?  Is your passion contagious?  To be passionate is exciting, but to be passionate with purpose is inviting. By engaging others through your passion and purpose, you bring out their desire to be a part of what you are seeking to achieve. You also ignite passions in others that further serve you and everyone in ways beyond what you could have imagined alone.

Take an MM&I Moment to confirm how your ultimate purpose is related to what you are passionate about.  Why are you so passionate in this particular way? How is fulfilling your passion going to make a difference, change or evolve things for the better? How will the world be a better place as a result of you living your passion? How can others partake and bring their own passions into the mix for the greater good and end result? Define the purpose behind your passion and you will find opportunities abound as others cannot wait to be a part of it with you.
