Be Passionate About What You Do & You Will Succeed!

Posted by 2 on

I absolutely LOVE this music video for several reasons! "Spotlight (Oh Nostalgia)" by Patrick Stump First of all, it features a great song; Patrick Stump’s “Spotlight (Oh Nostalgia)”. And the message is great:
  • Don’t let others tell you how to live your own life.
  • Be your own spotlight.
  • You can be your own star; you can shine so bright.
  • Compassion is something they can’t teach.
The video also features some incredible athletes including my favourite … Annika Vrklan, the seven-year-old “Flying Bunny”! Here’s someone who clearly loves what she does, is incredibly talented and soars at her sport. Isn’t that what we should all be striving for; finding the thing we love to do. Because if we are passionate about what we’re doing, we will succeed. Not all of us are going to be talented athletes but we’re all good at something. My passion is my creative spirit. My eldest son LOVES the game of golf and spends all of his spare time on the golf course. What’s your passion? Are you doing what you love to do in life?

  • I wish I had understood this message in my early 20’s when I was struggling to be someone I wasn’t. Thank goodness for the wisdom that comes with age. Love what you do and you will succeed!

  • I totally agree with you — everyone IS good at SOMETHING. The key is finding what that something is. Finding what we are good at and passionate about. It can save us in SO many ways. And if push comes to shove, that passion can help us get through so many things in this life.

  • My mother and were just talking about his. Unfortunately, at 71, she is still struggling to find her passion. I am extremely glad I’ve found mine at a much younger age.

  • Kimberly: Strange how it sometimes takes something bad for something good to happen. Glad you found your writing as an outlet because you have so much to share.

  • I never knew that I had a passion for writing. It wasn’t until I was diagnosed with postpartum depression that my psychiatrist told me to keep a journal. I would write and my husband would peek and encouraged me to post it online. I love writing and I love blogging and reading and meeting so many wonderful people.
