As someone who believes in the importance of passion when pursuing goals, I was very excited when I was recently asked to speak about the subject by an old friend for his leadership team.

In my mind, being passionate about your work is crucial to delivering great outcomes and your success in any area is often commensurate to how enthusiastic you are.

As a part of my preparation, I found some great quotes and I wanted to share my 9 favourites here.  I hope that they help you to get excited about life and encourage you to live a life of passion:

“Chase your passion, not your pension.”  Denis Waitley

“It is your passion that empowers you to be able to do that thing you were created to do.” T.D. Jakes

“Passion is a product of the heart. Passion is what helps you when you have a great dream. Passion breeds conviction and turns mediocrity into excellence! Your passion will motivate others to join you in pursuit of your dream. With passion, you will overcome insurmountable obstacles. You will become unstoppable!”  Andy Andrews

“Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion.”  Martha Graham

“One person with passion is better than 40 people merely interested.”  E.M. Forster

“I would rather die of passion than of boredom.” Vincent Van Gogh

“Passion is the most compelling and irresistible emotion there is. Passion is at the heart of every idea that matters.”  Bernadette Jiwa

“Passion is the genesis of genius.”  Tony Robbins

And this one, which is my all time favourite:

“Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.”  George Hegel

I hope that these quotes encourage you to get your heart racing, live with passion and find a way to live a remarkable life.

Do you have a favourite quote about passion that you would like to share?
