Hello friends,
Welcome again to Lifegiva’s blog. Today on the Journey to significance we’ll be talking about PASSION.
If Purpose wakes you up, passion makes you stand up.
Everyone has individual gifts and talents that can make a lasting impact. However many people just don’t care about it which makes very few live to their full potential.
Passion is being fully committed to your purpose. It is simply an inner light or an inner force that finds natural expression in a man’s life.
I came across a quote by Martin Luther kings which says “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
Passion makes you do your job well.
If you’re not passionate about what you’re doing, it means you are not minding your business and you will not be living a significant life.

Many of us are not living our purpose because we get carried away by people’s thoughts and plans for us rather than the plans God has for us. You need to Focus, caring about yourself and the reason why you exist.

God showed his passion towards us by his love and care. John 3:16
It takes passion to give your most precious resource and commit to the things that you believe in. Love is the underlying motive of passion. In Plato’s voice (LOL) Man, Love thyself.
If you really love and care about yourself and your purpose in life, you’ll be passionate about it. Passion is zero tolerance to failure in the pursuit of purpose.
Do you want to be an Entrepreneur, A life coach, A psychologist, A writer, An investor or you’ll like to do something like helping the needy, going on evangelism, cleaning your street, and you want to make a difference in the world. Show me your passion and show me how you care about it by taking action.
You may wonder how someone who is a street sweeper can be significant. He/she swept the nails of the road that prevented your tire from bursting and prevented an accident. That person is as significant as a CEO of a big corporation.

Passion is being the best you can be.
It Fuels confidence
Passion is the garment of purpose.

I listened to a message recently on Passion by Pastor Obamoh LFC worldwide and passion was spelt out as:

P- Pursuit of a thing with unbreakable focus.
A- Aspiration with great desperation for manifestation.
S- Strong investment of yourself, your spirit soul and body towards a thing.
S- Setting motion not minding barriers towards achievement.
I- Intense emotional attainment to a thing.
O- On the go.
N – Never giving up.

 Passion is very important.

 Don’t close your eye to your environment, get passionate about it.

Don’t close your eye to your future, get passionate about it.

 God bless you.
Have a great week.

Kind Regards,

Oluwadara Adekunle
