MM&I Header

May 12, 2014 - Is your passion contagious? When you speak to others about what you are striving to achieve, are you speaking in a way that engages and inspires them to help you? Are you in awe of others who seem to have this magic way of making their passion spread like a wildfire across a room, across a community or across an industry or marketplace? Part of instilling passion begins with having passion. Once you unleash your own passion for others to see and hear, then you will be amazed at how much you will accomplish in ways you can sparsely imagine right now.


Take an MM&I Moment to determine how what you are a passionate about inspires and engages others. If you aren't feeling passionate about anything right now, it is time to reach deep into your spirit to uncover or rediscover your many passions and allow them to be unleashed into your everyday living. Identify who you could share your passions with and who may share some of the same passions. Make a list of steps you can take to achieve your goals and to identify how your passion is contributing to ultimately achieving them. As you allow your passion to guide you more and more, you will find that more and more seems to follow and come into being.
