Welcome to October, 2018. This month at Innovate Today, we will be looking at the subject of Passion. While passion has several definitions, we will explore it as it relates to living life and pursuing purpose.

Last month, we looked at the subject of courage. To take a look at our posts on the subject of courage, please see our archive here.

What is Passion?

So what is Passion? Depending on its use, passion could be defined as a strong and barely controllable emotion. In other cases, it refers to the suffering and death of Jesus Christ. We see this definition in use in the movie by Mel Gibson titled Passion of the Christ. In our context however, we will use Wikipedia’s definition of passion: a feeling of intense enthusiasm towards something or someone.

Passion is important

Passion can also be defined as enthusiasm or interest. Without passion for what you do, your business or career, it becomes a burdensome. In other words, you only become successful at what you are passionate about.

Today, we take a look at a quote from Bishop T. D. Jakes, the Pastor, on the subject of passion:

If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose. — Bishop T.D. Jakes

Does the work you do feel like a burden to you? Perhaps its time you figure out what your passion is and start pursuing that.

Today, we would like to leave you with some thoughts on passion. Do you know what your passion is? What stirs up your enthusiasm? How are you pursuing that passion for the benefit of others? Leave us a comment in our comments section below. We would love to hear from you.
