Listed below are links to weblogs that reference My Take on Passion:


Valeria, I really enjoyed your post! Life doesn't make sense without passion! We must have a purpose for which we strive. I particularly like your comment: if you know more, teach and lead. I think it is the responsibility of those blessed with a drive to learn to be an inspiration to those that need direction. You are spreading an important message! Keep up the excellent work. ~Christine


Enjoy all you do - there's some hefty philosophers who'd argue that passion and the notion of enjoying all you do are in opposition. How curious then that we often see them on the same continuum.

Thanks Valeria. A real pleasure to think out loud in the chorus of voices found here.


@Alex - motivation is intrinsically-driven, passion is a good starter. The insecure ones, including the voices on the inside, will want to disrupt creation. On that you can count. A good strategy is to build a network of people who want you to succeed, may be constructive in their feedback, but will support you in the end.

@Robyn - thank you for stopping by.

@Sam - not familiar with either... in practical terms, what we put our attention on, develops.

@Peter - indeed, that has also been my experience.

@Ed - attitude and approach. We talk abut both here. Thank you for stopping by.
