Driven By Passion Or Purpose?
According to the Oxford dictionary,
Passion is Any great, powerful emotion, especially love or hate.
And purpose is The act of intending to do something; resolution; determination.
While passion and purpose is important in our day to day lives, it is important that we don’t mix them up and also letting us know that one is of more importance.
Opray Winefrey said Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.
What you love doing, what is crave for, passion is an inward impact that you do to satisfy your cravings for a particular thing.
While it is good to do or engage in what you love, it is very important to note that PASSION would be for your own satisfaction and consumption.
Let us note that we are on this earth for ourselves alone.
Shall we look at Purpose?
Purpose is What you were put on this earth to do, an outward impact.
For a month now, I have been getting trickles of messages via inbox from some people on how some of my posts is bringing healing to them, and giving them courage to face their fears.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, and to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well “Ralph Waldo Emerson”
I am glad that I get this feedback from my writing because this is why I write.
I WRITE TO ME AND YOU.
The purpose is driven by what you want to impact the world.
What you do for purpose revolves around everyone.
The purpose is not for your personal consumption but for the consumption of others.
By giving them meaning to what you choose to impact them with.
We can have so many passion but our purpose is one.
