What is passion to YOU?

Home >> Passion

...Is it a LURVE-thing?

  • Or is it simply the 'fuel' you need to live a successful, and stimulating life?
  • Or is it both of these and more?

Well, you'll find quotes, poems, and articles to help you make up your own mind.

As for me, I believe a fulfilled life awaits us all - in love, in work, in friendship... we just need to want it! I'll explain below. Oh, and do share YOUR views, as always - this is the Self Help Collective, remember!

What I say...

Confession-time: I am not the most pashonate person in the world!
  • So I don't go gaga over goals (of the football/soccer kind);

  • I don't talk tirelessly about the big issues of the day (deforestation, global warming, third world exploitation...);

  • And I don't particularly have a burning desire in the romance department... (my poor partner, eh!)

But maybe there is more to it than fervently following your football team, supporting a 'cause', or being 'head over heels' in love.

Maybe it's about how you live your life every second of the day - how much attention you give to everything you do. Maybe it's about what Oprah says below:

"Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes
from focusing on what excites you."

-- Oprah Winfrey

(More quotes here!)

Or maybe it's just about finding, and living your life your way, and not somebody else's.


ASIDE: I know a lot about living my own life, having my own values and beliefs, that's for sure. I also know it takes a lot of courage to live your life this way - your way! This is one of the main reasons I created SelfHelpCollective.com, if the truth be known. Interestingly - and you may already know this - I used SiteSell's internet business-building service called SBI! to conceive of and create SelfHelpCollective.com. Yep, SBI! is a great way of using 'what sparks you into life' to transform your life - of turning knowledge into income, so to speak, as this SBI! page explains!


Or maybe it's about a life (and love) that can be summed up by a poem or a stirring quotation thus:

"You know that when I hate you, it is because I love you
to a point of passion that unhinges my soul."

-- Julie de Lespinasse

(More love quotes here!)

Or, maybe, it's all of these things. (How did you know I was going to say that, eh!)

Yes, maybe this magical word can simply be summed up by these words:




finding and living by your own P-A-S-S-I-O-N-S ?

Don't ask me! I certainly don't know it all! In fact, I'd love it if you shared your thoughts on this subject (please do)!
