June 2014



What strong drive. What inner feeling. What do you see in the mirror when you look yourself in the eyes. It could be caused by a number of items. What you have learned from others over the years, an event that you will never forget and/or life and what it has gradually lead you to be.

Now, will your passion change what you choose, how you do and what you will plan. Yes, yes, shouldn’t the answer be yes! Why else should you do.

When you are faced with your decisions from ordering dinner to ending an interval early, remember why you do and is that what your passion would decide.

Now how do you harness it? Ah, so many ways. It has to be in line with how you feel deep inside. Whether you write it down, share with others, encourage others, speak on it and/or just tell yourself in the mirror.

Challenge, challenge yourself to define, plan and follow through with your passion as tomorrow will be oh so sweet. Sweet to yourself for being real and true to yourself.
