I’ve been asked to speak at the Outessa Summit–a women’s event sponsored by REI. The best outdoor retreat imaginable!
The topic for the opening event is: “How to Be Powered by Passion in all Aspects of Life.”
Here’s my personal experience of how passion works:
Passion can be lost in the mundane routine of life—and believe me, I’ve been there.
We can lack passion in our relationships for the same reason—it just gets to be the “same ole, same ole” especially in the bedroom.
The old adage, “Variety is the spice of life,” is true. (I’m not saying that you should go out and experience the variety of partners out there.) Sometimes, however, you need to spice it up and change things up to fire up that neuroplasticity that keeps the dopamine rolling and a passionate spark alive.
It’s the same in your day-to-day relationship that you have with yourself as you slip into the rut of routine.
Changing things up in small ways pays big dividends to amping that fire within.
Passion is that juice that moves me. When I’ve got that juice, my energy for a project is sustainable. I don’t get tired and my enthusiasm carries me forward without exhaustion.
Have you ever had an experience of immersion so powerful that hours can go by, but it feels like minutes?
There’s no compromise with yourself on this one.

Generate some, and it will ignite your whole life.”]
If you want to stay engaged at work and in your life in general, passion can be a self-generated power source that comes from within and if you are lacking some—you have to find the ignition switch in some small change to be super powered with passion.
First, you need to know what you love. The inquiry inward is simply to ask:
What do you love? And, How can you spend more time doing what you love?
As you answer this question for yourself you will rediscover what lights you up and get more of the juice that awakens your most vibrant life.
