Ignite your passion (2nd text of Kholoud's Ali slogan)

Today, God willing, we will complete the second episode of the podcast together with articles to clarify the phrase of the personal slogan, ignite your passion. Before that, we explained together the importance of having Courage and how to apply some simple steps that have an effective impact on our quality of life and our decisions ..

Dear readers, listeners and followers, warm greetings from the heart to all of you from all over the world

Ignite your passion, "Multiple scientific articles, books, and many experts in various fields of life have addressed and urged a lot on the importance of the existence of passion in a person's life and its effect on the extent of satisfaction, happiness and full satisfaction during life's journey.

What is its impact on our quality of life? Is it really that important and powerful? Why? And how can we integrate it with the pattern of our daily habits and reach through it the state of complete satisfaction of our being, contentment, happiness and balance.

This calls for us to ask together! What is passion?

The origin of the word craving is Latin pati, which means "to suffer" or "endure." Over the centuries, the meaning of passion has evolved greatly. But one of the enduring aspects is the idea that it involves a certain degree of patience

  • Passion is a strong and hardly controllable emotion.
  • Passion is a feeling of intense enthusiasm for someone, something, or an urge for it.
  • Passion can range from intense interest in or liking an idea, suggestion, or cause; For the enthusiastic enjoyment of an interest or activity; A strong attraction or affection for something or someone.

The Almighty said: Some ladies in the city said, “The governor's wife is trying to seduce her servant. She is deeply in love with him. We see she has gone astray.”That the Qur’an did not come up with a word other than passion to describe the intensity of her attachment and control of her feelings on her mind towards the Prophet Yusuf, because passion is the ultimate in affection, love and devotion towards something or a person.

{*Qur’an dealt with the linguistic miracle in the Holy Qur’an according to the scholars of interpretation in the Arabic language “In Surat Our Master Yusuf, peace be upon him,” the case of the The governor's woman *}

 Passion is an emotion on the weight of the word 'stormy' (a strong feeling of enthusiasm for something or for doing something.)

Passion is what generates desire, and this also means that you will not leave something or give up when you do not get the hopeful consequence or desired result.

A strong feeling (like anger) makes you behave in a dangerous way..but we can refine it with kindness and softness. Therefore, the last sentence of the personal mantra came, "Be kind" and this is what we will discuss together, God willing, in the next weeks.

Passion is the fuel in the fire of work. When you have a passion for something, you love it even when you hate it.

An example, is when you buy a new phone, and you don't have the money to buy it. Remember how enthusiastic and eager to get and buy it. Even if it is not within your financial capabilities, you save some money and deprive yourself of some temporary pleasures, and things that consume your money, in order to acquire it and enjoy using it.

Almost everything is measured by this. At first you feel intense enthusiasm and desire, and then your passion is extinguished..

but the truth is not extinguishing it.

We have become more consumers than we are producers or contributers.

 Therefore, passion has lost its way to us, and we also found ourselves searching and scourging for things, jobs, or people.

After that, we discover that it does not bring us satisfaction, happiness and balance ..

Many of us struggle, day in and day out, filling time and moving while we dream and wish for something. We believe that in some way, we live up to the expectations of others and meet the expectations of others.

Why do we have to ignite passion ?Why is passion so important? Does it definitely contribute to success?

The truth is that it is our emotions (our passions) that help us find our purpose in life. This is our responsibility! When we begin to achieve our goal, our body responds with energy and vigor and our souls are filled with prosperity and vitality.

1- Acts as an innate catalyst

 7seven reasons to ignite your passion

2- An indicator of an individual's future success

Among the traits and abilities that lead to success, passion stands alone. Unlike skill, knowledge, or other factors, passion is an innate stimulus: it cannot be learned or acquired but is always present. Passion is the overwhelming drive to reach one's goals, the one factor that unites all equally successful people.

Passion is related to a person's desire and ability to transcend the call of duty to achieve great results. Certainly, passionate people contribute more to the universe, whether they are employees, artists, athletes, inventors, inspirations, volunteers, or practicing any kind of profession and business.

*Passion is what generates the desire to learn, try again and do better next time. Regardless of a person's industry, career path, or talent level, he or she will inevitably face some failure and may not achieve success for years. The path to success looks more like a zigzag than a straight line, and a person's willingness to endure, learn from, and overcome setbacks will determine his performance.

For example, Steffi Graf played in professional tennis for nearly five seasons before winning her first 22 Grand Slam titles - a feat she might not have accomplished if she had reacted badly to the loss!

3- It makes it difficult for you to give up

It will be difficult for you to let go of something when you are excited because you will not care about the results. You will only be interested in doing the thing that you want, and you will do it even when you don't get the desired results. For example, if you like to cook, sing or draw, you will not care about the number of views, visitors, or listeners on YouTube, even if they are only five people. You will still do it because you love and enjoy it anyway.

4- It prevents you from wasting time

If you do what you love, then you will be obsessed with work because you will be passionate about it. Because of this, you will want to spend most of your time working, and you will avoid wasting time on pointless activities.

5. Increases focus

Passion leads to obsession that generates focus. Focus leads to success because it increases the quality of your work because it makes you more skilled and knowledgeable. Besides, Focus prevents you from making mistakes and generates consistency: thus, it increases your chances of success

6- Passion creates excitement.

Excitement is something that can be shared and creates value for an organization, not chaos. "Passionate, passionate professionals create enthusiasm in their team and with others, and are seen as great supporters." This contributes to their success as well.

7- Passion fosters hard work, determination and creativity that make great achievements possible.

 Successful novelists, filmmakers, scientists, CEOs, world-class athletes and other people who have risen to the top of their fields all have a deep drive that gives them the ability to work extraordinarily serious about something, even when it's uncertain how, when, and even If only they enjoyed the rewards for their efforts.

Because a passion is an emotion that cannot be taught or faked.

The explanation for joy and pleasure at work is found in one word - The secret of joy in work is contained in one word - excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it. Pearl S.Buck

* Some of the successful and inspiring people around the world have reinforced this phrase, such as Michael Jordan, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg.

1- Michael Jordan

When Michael Jordan was asked to think about his long and successful career in the NBA, he said: The greatest thing about basketball for me is my passion and love for it. Because when you have love for anything, you'll go to extreme miles to keep it at that level. . To be the best in anything, you must have a certain love for it, to make you overcome all the obstacles that will be thrown in your way.

2- Steve Jobs

Apple is one of the most successful companies in the world. The late Steve Jobs was the founder and most prominent leader of Apple. In an article entitled "The Steve Jobs Seven Principles of Success," writer Carmine Gallo identifies seven factors responsible for Jobs' success. The article is based on interviews with Apple employees and Steve Jobs himself. The first principle? "do what you love". Steve Jobs believed in the power of passion and once said, "People with passion can change the world for the better." Jobs said his passion for his work made a big difference.

3. Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has changed the world we live in. In David Kirkpatrick's book "The Facebook Effect: The Inside Story of the Company That is Connecting the World," Kirkpatrick lists what he believes were the characteristics of Zuckerberg that led to his success.

One of these characteristics is to follow his passion, not money. Zuckerberg suggests "following your happiness" when you are at a crossroads, using the reasoning that even if you don't end up making wealth, you at least do what you love.

Wait, turn around and come back, it's never too late

 The secret of living your dream is hidden in your passion and what you do because of it, because it is a strong desire that drives you to do amazing things, the desire that is nourished by passion will achieve the greatest results in life.

Our lives become meaningful through the influence we leave on others, rather than living and working for ourselves only. As we grow, our passions should inspire other people's passions and dreams. . We all have the power to create whatever type of life we ​​want.
