The heart of human excellence often begins to beat when youdiscover a pursuit that absorbs you, frees you, challenges you, and gives you a sense of meaning, joy and passion.
Everything worthwhile in life is work. But if it puts a smile on your face, itdoesn‟t feel like work. Hard work becomes easy when your work becomes your play. Never underestimate the value of loving what you do.
Continue to work hard at what you love no matter what the oddsare. Eventually, someone will praise and appreciate what you do.
It‟s not how much money you make that ultimately makes you happy. It‟s whether or not your work fulfills you. The best feeling in the world is getting paid to do what you love.
Often people attempt to live their lives backwards. They try to acquire morethings, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will behappier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.
Be the kind of person others admire, can count on, trust, and enjoy spending time with. After you have developed that reputation, people will start to ask you what you do, and you will be amazed at how many people will want to work with you on the things that matter to you.
Never make up excuses, because excuses are lies confirming that you are not being true toyour heart. And don‟t look for shortcuts in life either, because if you do you are only fooling yourself. Simplify your life, work toward your goals, show respect and be true to yourself and others. There is only one „you;‟ reinvent the very best of „you‟ every chance you get.
Purpose is the reason you journey. Passion is the fire that lights your way. Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things.
Neglecting passion blocks creative flow. When you‟re passionate, you‟re energized. Likewise, when you lack passion, your energy is low and unproductive. Energy iseverything when it comes to being successful. When passion and skill work together, the end result is often a masterpiece.
There are people who live in a dream world, and there are people who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other. If you are passionate about it, pursue it, no matter what anyone else thinks. That‟s how dreams are achieved.
Live by choice, not by chance. Make changes, not excuses. Be motivated, not manipulated. Work to excel, not compete. Choose to listen to your inner voice, not the jumbled opinions of everyone else.
Find what makes you come alive, whatever it is. Become it and let it become you, and great things happen FOR you, TO you and BECAUSE of you.
It‟s not about getting a chance, it‟s about taking a chance. You‟ll rarely be 100% sure it will work, but you can always be 100% sure doing nothing won‟t work. Sometimes you just have to go for it.
No matter how many times you break down, there should always be a littlevoice inside you that says, “NO, you‟re not done yet! Get back up!” That‟s the voice of passion and courage.
Life is short. If there was ever a moment to follow your passion and do something that matters to you, that moment is now. Thank You Very Much Sompong Yusoontorn
