I just had to reblog this excellent motivational post by Lou Ludwig. Every day Lou gives us food for thought and this one rang a bell.
How many of us truly love what we do? I can always sense the enthusiasm and zest a person has for their work. And, usually these people are some of the most successful in their field.
Find something where you're not just going to work every day... follow what "lights your fire."
Motivational Power Quote
What Lights Your Fire and Drives You?
“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs – ask yourself
what makes you come alive and then go do it.
Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
Harold Thurman Whitman, philosopher and theologian
As I see it . . . . . . .
What lights your fire and drives you?
You can hear it in a person’s voice you can see it in their actions. When a person involved with what firers up their passion and what drives them they become automated. You can hear the fire in their voice and see the drive in their actions.
It becomes almost impossible to stop the forward progress of a person that is driven.
When a person lights the fire that within them their ambition comes to the surface and they have the determined and passion to succeed,
In finding what drives you there is a subtle shift in your motivation at first that goes almost unnoticed at first and will grow into and unstoppable force that drives you and your passion to achieve your goals.
What light your fire and drives you varies from person to person, but it’s within you. You will find it when you take the time to search for it with an open mind and step away from your comfort zone to see it.
Asking yourself what lights your fire and drives you will open the doors of possibilities and will focus you on what you’re passionate about. Ask the question and seek out the answers and you will come alive.
