If you work really hard to achieve your goals but don't enjoy the journey, you're delaying the essence of life. Committing to your goals doesn't mean you slave away at work you dislike, celebrating only the destination. A real abiding commitment means that you love what you do each day. You are at least as passionate about the path as you are about the results. If you love the path you're on, your passion motivates you to keep taking the next step.
But passion alone isn't enough. Passion requires focused direction, and that direction must come from three other areas: your purpose, your talents, and your needs.
First, purpose and passion go hand in hand. If you don't know your life purpose, your passion won't be guided by conscience. Many criminals go this route -- they are very passionate about certain actions, but those actions aren't motivated by a higher purpose.
When your passion and purpose point in the same direction, it means you fall in love with the path of service. You love what you do, an it also contributes positively to the world. This creates a synergy, which increases your passion manifold. This is a natural consequence of doing something you love to do that you know is making a difference.
Action: Dream your life, then live your dream!
