Passion Versus Ambition

Passion Versus Ambition | Peak Performance | Scoop.it

One of our Fellows recently asked whether we thought the “titans of modern industry”—the Rockefellers, Carnegies, and JP Morgans—were passionate or not. What about Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg? It is almost impossible to answer that question without having direct knowledge of an individual—such figures have moved into the realm of mythology and even their own accounts of their actions and motivations were written under the veil of looking backward over a successful career. But the Fellow’s underlying question is more relevant: Why does passion matter? If we were to say that such leaders and influencers may or may not have had passion, as we define it, then who cares about passion?

Find Your Passion and True Happiness Will Come - Part 1 (with Worksheet) | Peak Performance | Scoop.it

Can you be successful and not be happy? Can you be wealthy, fit, drive the best car, have a great marriage and family, and still not be happy and feel you have not fulfilled your passion?

 

In the daily grind of life, we often lose touch with who we are and what gives us ‘life’.

 

Our life becomes mundane, boring and the ‘same old same old’.  What our heart longs for is passion to make us feel alive, have purpose and feel invigorated.

 

But what is passion?

The integration of compassion and passion are important to finding the joy and happiness we seek. I taught and thrived in the classroom when the two were inextricably intertwined.

It is not always easy to identify your true passions, but the process of trying to re-connect with what really enthuses you is extremely worthwhile.
