A few weeks ago I was once again asked a question I’m often asked: ‘where do you get your never-ending energy from?’ This was coming from a person who was complaining about his job and how he didn’t have the energy to really reach out and do more than just enough. He felt like he lacked the energy he needed to do more and shine more.
‘Passion‘, I told him. ‘I feel passionate about what I do.’ It’s true. I’m a lucky person. Life has always given me things to do that I just love. I loved teaching, then I loved translating and interpreting, now I love, truly love coaching and writing. There are many things I love about my job but the number one aspect is that I love people. I love seeing how their hearts and souls open to new interpretations. I love helping them feel welcome, accepted, understood… I love what I do.
And by loving what I do, that same passion turns into all the energy I need and more. It’s like children playing. They never feel tired. They only feel tired when the game is over. Because the passion of the game gives them the energy they need to continue playing. They don’t even question it.
I believe people feel tired at work or in life when they don’t love what they’re doing. Do you love what you do? Do you love your life? Do you love your relationships?
So that’s my answer to my friend and to all those who want to know my “secret.” My energy comes from passion. Passion is the key to having all the energy you need. Love what you do and you’ll never feel tired.
Enjoy life… ALL of it,
