“Science means constantly walking a tightrope between blind faith and curiosity; between expertise and creativity; between bias and openness; between experience and epiphany; between ambition and passion; and between arrogance and conviction – in short, between an old today and a new tomorrow.” ~ Heinrich Rohrer

What Is Passion?
It’s not what you think…
Passion is one of those words that people use often without really understanding the actual meaning of the word… or how it was derived.
When most people refer to “passion”, they use it to mean strong emotions reflecting an intense desire or boundless enthusiasm.
That’s a good start.
But passion actually means something entirely different:
A Willingness to Suffer for What You Love.
The most famous example being the passion of Jesus Christ. This is the Gold Standard for the meaning of passion.
People who make a difference in their own lives and the world do so by following their passion.
This means making the conscious decision to give up other enjoyable activities to focus your energy on the most important activities.
The good news is when you pursue your passion, you’ll not only like where you end up but enjoy the journey along the way.
I know this might sound negative, but it isn’t. It’s really the best way to discover your passion and purpose.
Look at your life and highlight the things you love that you’re willing to suffer for. This self-reflection will give you insight into what you’re passionate about. If you’re not sure, just pick something you enjoy and see if you’re willing to give up other activities to spend more time on it.
Remember that in life you can choose and change your actions — just also keep in mind that you’re responsible for the consequences.
Don’t settle, make the rest of your life the best of your life.
“This is why famous entrepreneurs commonly talk about passion being the key to their success.
Creating new things that people actually want is incredibly difficult to get right, and when you start a new venture, many of the real obstacles are lurking over the horizon. You don’t see them until you’re well into it. Passionate people have the extra determination to overcome them, when sensible people would rather just get a job.” ~ Steve Jobs, Apple CEO
