4 Abundant Ways To Add FIRE To Your Passion!

How many times have you found yourself dreaming youwere more passionate?

What makes certain people so passionate? How come they seemto be on-fire for their cause? Why do enthusiastic peoplebecome leaders we are willing to follow?

Maybe you once had a burning desire inside of your heart. Ifyou have ever hoped to add more fuel to the F.I.R.E. ofliving then perhaps these four simple steps will light-up,add a spark, ignite and fan the flames for you.

F = Find the Fantastic

Many of us go through life losing sight of our originaldream. Sometimes, the daily grind saps the strength of ourhopes.

Other times, we allow major challenges, roadblocks anddifficulties to drain the power from our fantasies. Whateverthe cause, it is up to us to find ways to keep the boldnessand eagerness of our most inspiring goals alive.

By seeking out and accepting the fantastic qualities of yourdreams and visions, you can increase your own passion forrealizing them:

=> Is your dream full of wonder and glamour?

=> Does your dream shine brightly or reflect a brilliance?

=> Are there other people who have a similar dream, if so,are those people considered to be "great"?

I = Invest & Inspect

Wouldn't it be nice if we could go to sleep and wake upfilled with passion and energy? I prefer to be lazy and lookfor ways to avoid hard work whenever possible.

But there is a law that must be obeyed, it goes somethinglike this: you will reap what you sow. The lottery ads sayit best: "to win it, you have to be in it!"

=> How much time do you invest in feeding your dream?

=> How much effort do you invest in building your dream?

=> How many of your assets and resources are you investinginto your dream?

=> How close are you to realizing your dream, how often andhow much do you inspect and measure your progress?

R = Reach Up, Reach In, Reach Out

The Pastor of my church uses these 3 actions to encourageour spiritual growth. He knows we humans need to perform allthree to be successful in our pursuits.

Passionate people reach up to their higher power becausethey know, trust in and rely on their God supplies them withguidance, wisdom and strength.

Enthusiasm means having the inspired God within. You cantake hold of and attain a powerful enthusiastic attitude.

If you are willing to reach inside yourself and let thatgodly inspiration of His love, Will and His Being comeinside you, you too will catch His passion [that's why MelGibson called his movie, "The Passion..."]

When you reach out to help others, you will be blessed aswell. That is a spiritual law that wealthy, faithful andintelligent people have followed throughout history.

For proof, look at all the charitable gifts or foundations,winners of the Nobel Peace prize and acts of heroismperformed in the world today.

E = Entertain & Energize Yourself

Very few people think of entertaining their fantasies, yetpeople of passion use those techniques to keep theirwatch lights burning.

You have to maintain your guard over and sustain your watchof your dreams. The interruptions and pollution of dailylife will try to distract you.

Those poisoned whisperings of the dark side want you to buywhat they are selling.

You can ignore and avoid yielding to the influences ofnegativity by running the films of dreams in your mind overand over again.

You must entertain, energize and indulge your fantasy by

=> Putting up, looking at and studying the pictures, imagesand imaginings of your desired objective

=> Repeating the affirmed beliefs of your hope to yourselfout loud and frequently

=> Talking the talk and walking the walk of your vision -acting, thinking, speaking just like you already haveachieved your goals

Energy comes from the mass of serious efforts - be sternwith your heart and mind, entertain their future prospects.


The starting point of all achievement is desire. Use theF.I.R.E. of your desires to heat up and excite the passionthat is deep within you.

I love using my quiet times and places of solitude to boostthe temperature of my enthusiasm. You might need to use adifferent method but my favorite one is the "entertain andenergize" technique.

Successful people have employed these tools to super-chargetheir passionate attitudes, when you try, you'll discoveryou can too.

Take time to stoke the F.I.R.E. of your passion today!

"On a Fine Morning", you will want to heed the words ofThomas Hardy:

"Whence comes solace? Not from seeing,
What is doing, suffering, being;
Not from noting Life's conditions,
Not from heeding Time's monitions;
But in cleaving to the Dream
And in gazing at the Gleam
Whereby gray things golden seem."
