According to Dan Miller,

“Don’t expect your passion to show up in full force. Passion is more developed than discovered.”

Sometimes, we expect to wake up one day with a sudden epiphany of how we will spend the rest of our life.

And so we wait and we pray and we have a convenient excuse for not doing anything meaningful or worthwhile.

Of course, there are those we know who discovered their passion from a young age.  They’ve always wanted to be a teacher or a doctor or a musician, so they’ve worked hard at their craft for a long time to achieve their goal.

But it doesn’t often work like that.

You don’t find it under a rock or have it delivered to you in the mail, you have to work on it and hone it.

You can’t wait for it to come to you, you’ve got to go out and get it.

You can’t just wait until you feel passionate about something, you have to live with passion.
