Let the leaven of passion raise the dough of your projects
By Jean Ricot Dormeus
Passion worked miracles in the life of a woman born into poverty to a teenage mother in a segregated ethnic group. Obviously, the deck was stacked against her and she seemed destined to a destitute life. However, her passion for helping people through communication and motivation made her the richest African-American of the 20th century and the US first black multi-billionaire. Oprah Winfrey embodies the transformational power of passion.
Oprah says, “You’ve got to follow your passion. You’ve got to figure out what it is you love–who you really are. And have the courage to do that.”
Passion frees knowledge and technique of their bounds. You may rack up all the other ingredients for a great life, but only the leaven of passion will raise the dough of your existence and your pursuits. So many people know what to do and how to do it, but do nothing or just enough to preserve their situation. Passion finds the requisite hot air or gas to float the balloon of your goals and dreams. Passion empowers you to beat the sun in the morning, overcome the pain of persistent hard work and conquer the fear of others, the unknown and tomorrow.
Passion breeds credibility. The level of energy you invest in your project and the sacrifice you enthusiastically accept send a strong signal about you. Everybody perceives that you mean business and you are not ready to accept anything less than success. Then you win a followership that will catapult your influence, your sales, and your march toward the top.
Passion will bounce you back like the reed and generate such resilience that no storm can keep you in a hole, no mountain rise too high to climb and no bridge spread too long to build. Make passion the leaven of you assignments, it will raise the dough of your achievements.
