What are you passionate about? We didn’t ask if you are passionate. But what are you passionate about? What stirs your emotions? What is it you can’t stop talking about whenever someone asks: “What are you passionate about?” What’s fire in your belly? What really turns you on? What do you love doing most?
What is it that you love doing so much that you forget time? You forget others. You are so focussed that you don’t hear anything. What is it that gets your creative juices going? What is it that you love more than anything else?
Graham is passionate about books. He loves them. He just loves books. They are all placed in their respective homes on shelves. Each has a neighbour. He fondles them. Cares for them. Places book marks in them, never folds corner of their page.
A bookshop is like a magnet to him. He will spend hours with his head tilted to one side as he scours shelves for works that interest him. He loves books that have a different angle on coaching and developing people. He loves reading unusual biographies. He loves books where people have beaten odds to survive. It doesn’t matter whether they are fiction or non fiction. They have to be about improving self.
At least that’s what it appears to outsider. But, you see, books aren’t really his passion. It just looks like it. He loves books yes of course he does. But really books are a vehicle. A method of giving him what he truly craves for…..
And that is learning. Graham has a passion for learning about human spirit. How to get most out of it. How to tap into it. How to push it to new heights. How to get to its potential. How to climb out of feelings of mediocrity. How to, excel at what ever he does.
His Passion is for human spirit.
Often, that which appears as a passion, at first, is just vehicle for real deep down passion that lights you up.
