Long life is definitely what everybody wants to have because we want live to enjoy whatever it is we have worked for.
Different groups have different opinion they offer on how to live longer; the medical, religious, tradition and so forth.
In respect to every advice they have shared about living longer is this - PASSION.
Passion in the context of what I'm talking about is simply an intense enthusiasm for something.
Mark the word 'intense', so it is not just a feeling of enthusiasm, but a deeper feeling.
Being passionate about anything is the only reason one can finish a project without being totally bored! On the other hand, lack of passion is why we start so many things and complete but a few.
Take a moment, go down the memory lane and think about the many things you have ventured into and the ones that you actually brought to a meaningful stage before jumping on to the next exciting idea.
This invariably means that being excited about taking up a new project or responsibility is not passion! Passion is what drives you to be completely sold out for a cause you believe in.
For passion's sake, you can deny yourself sleep, food, time and money, just to give your all to what you stand for.
People that are passionate about a cause are people that lead in the world today.
This is because they NEVER quit.
Passion equals non-quitters! You might feel beaten severally or even fail, but what will drive you back to your feet is passion.
Watch politicians, actors, singers and just about anybody in any field, you can easily spot the people that are completely sold out for that field.
They are the ones that have been rejected severally, but they come bouncing back, they might have competed for that particular post for so long and each time they fail, they come back till they get to where they are.
It was simply passion that brought them back.
On the other hand, there were people that were rejected with them, there were those that failed with them, but you do not know anything about those ones because they had given up and quit.
The coolest thing about passion is that it drives your spirit, soul and body.
It is like an energizing power that keeps you going.
It overwhelms your entire being and wraps you up.
Find that thing that can drive you and follow it with every life you have and believe me, such things are very few things.
