I wake up many mornings, in a minor panic to write, or to speak, or to create a video, or to connect with someone who can help me (and I them) in spreading the word on authentic entrepreneurship. I have so much that I feel compelled to share that I am often in a slight terror about not being able to put it all out there before I die. Even if I live to 105. That feeling, as uncomfortable as it is, indicates my passion.
My passion and yours is just like a nuclear reactor. Once it starts, it just keeps going and going and going. It simply creates more and more heat. Our job is to capture that heat and create something useful out of it. We don’t need to worry about “fueling the fire.” We need to worry about capturing that energy and directing it to something of value. Passion is a self feeding reaction.
If you ignore your passion – if you don’t give it an outlet – it is only a matter of time before your meltdown.
