Unlock the passion in your life
Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
Passion is the DESIRE to live fully. It is what fuels the actions you take to live a beautiful life and to make the most out of it. It is what inspires you to grow and expand so that you may have new experiences, all of which carry you up, up, up like a rocket reaching for the sky.
Passion is what makes life worth living. After all, weren’t we born to grow and learn? Just think how boring life would be if you knew everything before it happened. Would you take life for granted if everything came easily?
Passion ignites. Passion transforms.
Passion is EXCITEMENT. It is the expansive and attractive enthusiasm and zest for life that attracts good things to you. Passion leads to creation — of life, new business, and to the creation of art!
Passion is MOTION. The drive to follow your curiosity that leads to taking actions so that you may experience more of life on earth as long as you’re here.
"The creative act is not hanging on, but yielding to a new creative movement. Awe is what moves us forward." — Joseph Campbell
Discover your passion
Passion is TRUTH. Being true to self and living that truth out loud.
Passion is COURAGE. It allows you to take risks and to live life as it was intended: joyfully. It allows you to dare to let go of the beliefs holding you back and the people whose belief systems you’ve outgrown, with trust that you’ll come together again when they resonate in harmony with you.
"A man with outward courage dares to die; a man with inner courage dares to live." — Lao Tzu
Passion is FULLNESS. To put your entire heart and soul into whatever it is you’re doing and to believe one hundred percent in that. Therefore, to live a passionate life is to live wholeheartedly.
"There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life." — John Lennon
