Jan. 1, 2013

— A life without passion is not a life.  Being passionate about your life, pursuing your dreams, striving with all your might to make each day a great day, these are key elements in creating a rich and fulfilling life.  No matter whom you are, each day we get the same choice, to live life with passion or to just live life.  Which one do you choose?

You made it to 2013 and the world didn’t end, go figure.  How many out there got coerced into believing the Mayan end time theory?  No matter where you stand on the subject, it simply didn’t happen.  So now what are you going to do?  What if you don’t take the Mayan calendar ending as a literal fact, but instead choose to use it for motivation for creating a better life for yourself, your family and your community?  

I know it’s a little hokey and sounds a bit like science fiction, but what if the world as you knew it stopped, died and ceased to exist and you now are now beginning a brand new life with a greater sense of purpose and a deeper commitment to creating a remarkable future?  A personal rebirth if you will a chance to start over fresh and new.  Each of us gets this special opportunity every single day and often times we choose not to believe that it is even remotely possible.  I beg to differ, I know that it is not only possible, but you can choose to leave behind your old life and begin creating your dream life the second that you make up your mind and decide to do so.

With January still in its infancy, what better time to re-establish who you are and where you are heading?  If you are sick and tired of how your life is going, do something about it.  If your life was a great life, what would it look, feel and be like?  What is keeping it from happening now?  

I have a sneaking suspicion that you are not living a life of passion.  I mean that deep down love for what you do and experiencing the feeling of excitement that rushes through your veins each morning when the alarm clock goes off.  Life should be exciting, challenging and purposeful.  You should enjoy it, learn from it and feel a deep sense of gratitude for each and every day that you are in it.  

Are you ready to make 2013 the year that you decide to start living passionately?  Living a life of passion is taking on a new persona, a new paradigm and a new attitude towards people, things and life in general.  It will take work.  It will take daily commitment to your goal.  It will take the maturity and the ability to adopt a new philosophy towards life and to look outside of self and see the bigger picture that is all around you.  It will involve a deeper relationship with your Creator and the ability to share love freely with all that come your way.  You will have to personally define what passion is to you.

This New Year can be your year.  It all begins with a decision to make life different and then the sky is the limit.  I wish you the most passion filled year ever.  I challenge you over the course of the next 365 days, to discover your hidden talents, to participate at the 100% level in everything that you do and to love with all your heart.  Live passionately.  To Your Success!
