Dear protégé, have you ever thought about the difference between Passion and Purpose? You apparently have not felt the need to do so. Otherwise you would have been living the life of your dream or at the verge of doing so. Warning! There are explosive realities once you’re able to distinguish between the terms Passion and Purpose. Especially at the point of intersection when you re-associate the two terms Passion and Purpose in a philosophical nexus.
Simply put, passion is an enduring strong desire for satisfaction or excitement in a worthy endeavour. It is an emotional receivable, which you derive from that endeavor. Everyone secretly pursue their passion with a sense of entitlement. Passion is a hunger or thirst you seek to satisfy. Where they’re best satisfied by engaging your internal and cognitive strength is what you tag as your passion. Endeavour that does not engage your strength doesn’t become passion but once it does, you’d look for opportunities to graze in the pasture of your passion.
On the other hand, purpose is the underlining reason for involvement in an endeavour. It is the rationale for your existence in the societal ecosystem. The right way to view your purpose is as an emotional payable, which you contribute. Purpose is rightly pursued with a sense of indebtedness. Why am I here? You should ask! Everything exists as a solution to a problem. Think about it! Your purpose is all about the problem you’re here to solve. Otherwise you’re not needed! But the fact that you’re here means there is a need for you.
So what is the nexus dear protégé? Once you discover a passion and a purpose, spare no effort in bringing the two together in one place. At the moment of intersection, something sparks! For the first time, you’ll be able to focus your energies. This is inclusive of your cognitive, natural, social and intuitive resources. Then you’ll be filled with the drive or momentum to harness external opportunities in order to innovate.
Further alignment of your passion and purpose with requisite action takes you through creativity and peak performance to maximum significance and culminates in self actualization.
