Passion—where do you find it? There is not a pat answer to that question. I have Googled ten pages deep looking for a Passion Roadmap. It doesn’t exist. I have, to no avail, exhausted “Bible Search” looking for God’s Five Steps For Finding Your Passion. I couldn’t even find a one step formula. Why? Because passion is not something you find, rather it finds you, or catches you, or calls out to you—take your pick.
The heart is where passion resides, catches fire, burns hot and leads to action. There is a phrase we often use to encourage people to greater effort: “Put your heart into it!” I’ve heard it a thousand times from coaches, teachers, bosses and preachers. However, where there is passion, it’s not necessary because the heart is already into it.
Although there is no formula for finding passion, there are some things that will help you recognize your passion—that thing you must do:
I have passion for leadership. How do I know?
One thing is certain, if you are in leadership, you better have passion for it. It’s too hard to lead without it.
What’s your passion? If you don’t know, I hope you’ll discover it soon.
