I am taking a break from all the brilliant blog posts from my clients, family, and friends. I recently found a quote in the book The Art of Possibility, Zander, and I wanted to share it with you. This is in the chapter on “Leading from Passion.” It is about how to connect to passion. It’s powerful to be able to find and connect to our passion and so often we make it harder than it needs to be. In the end says Zander, to connect to your passion, lean in and participate.
I agree. When you play full out, leave nothing behind and go all in, even if you don’t love what you are doing, you will find your passion. Below is a quote I want to give you this week because it speak to this brilliant truth – if you do not express your own passionate self and do what you are meant to do in this world, no one will. And we will all lose out.
“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.” –Martha Graham
