Today, we focus on what drives artists, scientists, and entrepreneurs alike is passion.
“Passion is one great force that unleashes creativity, because if you’re passionate about something, then you’re more willing to take risks.” – Yo-Yo Ma
Is is passion has been what gives inspiration and energy to visionaries throughout history. It creates a need to innovate and inspire others. It seeps into the very fiber of our creations, gives them life.
We are a society caught between two generations that view passion differently. One views it as dangerous, something that should be kept behind closed doors for the sake of status quo. Another views it as a way to help expand the world, make it better through music, art, and advocacy. These are the people that see risk as an opportunity rather than a hazard.
However, passion is like anything in life. There is a reason it is related to a fire. When harnessed and controlled, it can keep us warm and cook food. If you let it out of control, it will burn and destroy. Too regulated and it will suffocate and snuffs out in a puff of smoke.
The key is to learn what YOUR balance is. What is that magic spot between smoke and wildfire for you to thrive on your passion? Are you taking too many risks or not enough?
Now, is the time to unleash your passion, to begin to understand that limit. Once you achieve that, you may start to realize how far you can soar.
