A life without passion
When we fail to dream, we rob ourselves of the energy that gives life to better stories.
Our efforts are energized and sustained by our passion. And our dreams build passion in our souls.
How do you get up at 5am every morning without passion? How do you get back on the treadmill despite sore muscles without passion? How do you quit an addictive habit without passion? How do you face the Resistance without passion? How do you ignore naysayers, both yourself and others, without passion?
How do you tackle the impossible without passion?
If we set out to be mediocre, then that is all that we will be. Nothing more.
Without a burning desire in our hearts, there will be no effort. There will be no change. We will accept things as they are.
The world will not change.
Of course nobody makes it their goal to be mediocre. It is the default mode of a life without dreams.
Mediocrity just happens. Better stories take effort.
