According to Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, passion is “an intense, driving, or overmastering feeling or conviction. Synonyms are enthusiasm, zeal, fervor, intensity, and gusto.” I think passion is the ingredient most missing in today’s workers. The lack of job desire almost always leads to two questions: 1. Why do I do this job? And 2. Is this all there is?
Unhappy employees don’t extend themselves. They master the art of looking busy but contributing little. They’re going through the motions and deceiving themselves and their employer. When you’re not happy at work, it has a massive effect on the rest of your life.
Passion creates excitement about arriving in the morning, being productive, and contributing to the team effort. Passion makes happy people.
People need a reason for acting. The more critical the purpose, the more likely we will accomplish the task. You can create passion and achieve almost any goal with a significant purpose.
