Why it pays off to search for your passion

“I wanna feel this way longer than time
I wanna know your dreams and make them mine
I wanna change the world only for you
All the impossible i wanna do

I wanna hold you close under the rain
I wanna kiss your smile and feel your pain
I know it’s beautiful looking at you
You’re in a world of lies, you are the truth

And baby, every time you touch me, I become a hero
I’ll make you safe no matter where you are
And bring you anything you ask for, nothing is above me
I’m shining like a candle in the dark
When you tell me that you love me”
When you tell me that you love me – Julio Iglesias & Dolly Parton

 

The other day I was driving with my husband to a market and listening to the radio. Just before we arrived, a new song started. One of my favourite singer – Julio Iglesias. We stopped the car and stayed inside to listen to the whole song.

You know his story, right? He was not always a singer. He wasn’t even contemplating an artistic career in this direction. He was a football player and a good one it seems, until he had a car accident that immobilised him to a hospital bed for a while. There he discovered his talent as a singer.

I often wonder how would the world be without Julio’s music and immediately I express my gratitude for his willingness and power to get passed his tragic accident to enchant us with his songs.

To me listening to Julio Iglesias is like swallowing a super healthy smooth sweet syrup that moisturises my soul, my heart. I think there is no song of his that doesn’t have the same effect on me.

Yesterday I realised that it’s not the music itself that does that, it’s his voice. It’s something in his voice. It’s passion. Passion that touches every pore, pierces every nerve and gets stuck on my soul.

And I couldn’t help wondering – what would it be like to put so much love and dedication into something that you can actually get to the core of a human being. I wouldn’t know, I didn’t get so deep in to someone’s soul yet but, I would very much like to be able to touch a life in the same way.

Stories like Julio’s have inspired me to search for my passions. I tested and tested and I finally found it.

What can I say? It’s a huge difference between doing a job and working your passion. In fact, working is not the most suitable word here. It’s fun, it’s exciting, it’s a never-ending flow of energy, good energy. And what do you know – it’s about contribution. That makes it so rewarding.

One of the basic human needs is that of CONTRIBUTION.

We can contribute in many ways, but the feeling that your work touches the lives of others is the ultimate reward. And doing something from the right state means putting your best energy into it, means delivering that energy and offering it to someone else. Just like Julio and many other artists do – they heal our souls, they enrich our days, our lives.

Wouldn’t it be great if we’d all do that for at least one person? What would the world become if we turned into a “healer”?

Let’s think about it and make it a purpose to turn our passions into soul plasters!

“Passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. It is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialised into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible.” (Urban Dictionary)
