KG Blog: White Hot Passion

White Hot Passion is our theme for summer. The more we contemplate passion and purpose, the more we come to realize that the two go hand-in-hand. How can one be passionate without a purpose? And how can one's passion not flow into their purpose? It's easy to lose sight of our dreams and just move through the motions of life without a deliberate intention. But no matter what you do, you will move in some direction toward some end, so it's helpful to set your compass with purpose and intention. The beauty of your purpose is that it's tailor-made, completely distinct from anyone else's. No one can tell you yours or fulfill it for you - just you. Don't be afraid to discover your passion and purpose and pursue it with every ounce of energy and spirit you have, for you will find true joy and a life that's better than you could have ever imagined. May these cherished words guide and encourage you:

"There’s no passion to be found in playing small, in settling for a life that is less than you are capable of living." – Nelson Mandela

“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It’s lethal.” -Paulo Coelho

"If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose." – Bishop T.D. Jakes

"It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dream of meeting your heart’s longing.” – Oriah

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because the world needs people who have come alive." – Howard Thurman

"Notice when your heart leaps up in joyous exuberance… In these moments the voice of your spirit is speaking directly to you." – Justine Willis

"There is no greater gift you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It’s why you were born. And how you become most truly alive.” – Oprah Winfrey

"Success isn’t a result of spontaneous combusion. You must set yourself on fire." – Arnold H. Gibson

"I believe a purpose is something for which one is responsible; it’s not just divinely assigned." – Michael J. Fox

"You can’t just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream, you’ve got to get out there and make it happen for yourself." – Diana Ross

"At first dreams seem impossible, then improbable, then inevitable." – Christopher Reeve

"You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do." – C. G. Jung

"The best antidote I know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life is this: he or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served." – Gordon B. Hinckley

"The purpose of life is not to be happy - but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all." – Leo Rosten

"Our passions are the winds that propel our vessel. Our reason is the pilot that steers her. Without winds the vessel would not move and without a pilot, she would be lost." – Proverb

"You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." – Steve Jobs

"We begin to find and become ourselves when we notice how we are already found, already truly, entirely, wildly, messily, marvelously, who we were born to be." – Anne Lamott
