Passion is not just the way to happiness--it's also the fuel that ignites success.

Surround yourself with a support group that empowers you, lifts you up, and believes what you believe. There is no such thing as luck. People that seem to have it all have generally worked their butts off very hard to achieve their goals and dreams.
Be obsessed with learning new skills, interest and ideas. Ideas can be found anywhere. Fuel what excites you and become a sponge.
Re-ignite your passion at work

6 ways to ignite your passion
Blogs are powerful and one of the easiest ways to share your thoughts, interest and ideas. This is a great way to explore and fuel what interest you. Give your passion room to breathe and start blogging.

Dare to be different. Find that one thing that makes you come alive…become it, breathe it and let it become you.

Your passion helps to endure those daily disciplines that build the foundation of your success. We were all created different for a reason. Find your reason and use it.
When you take time to be still, your inner voice will guide you. Years ago, I use to live my life on a rat race barely taking the time to live and enjoy the present moments. I know, strange but so true.
I put more energy into what matters most. Life is a collection of moments.
So live in the now by enjoying the journey and new experiences. Surround yourself with the things you love and enjoy. Be ready to turn your passion into an example to encourage those around you to pursue their own goals. A true passion is limitless … so share it. People who feel your passion, are moved and inspired.
