What drives champions?


Passion is the essence of life.

Passion is the starting point to living a life of purpose, significance and fulfilment.

It is the generator that powers us with energy, vitality and dynamism on the journey of life.

Passion can turn the impossible into possible. It can move us to achieve our highest calling.

It can lead us to not only magical times of life, it can also help us stretch every moment and savour it, moment by moment.

The reason is because passion, joy and happiness are close cousins. They usually travel through the thick and thin of life together.

Passion is the fire in our soul. It can help us burn a trail and leave a track record of blazing glory.

That’s why if we cannot find passion in what we do, there is no reason why our body should be in it. It will eventually suck every bit of life from us.

Hence, we need to ensure that we sleep and jump out of bed with passion.

Without it, we are dead but not buried. We live but we’re not living life.

We don’t need to search for passion out there in the world. Our Creator has already placed passion in our heart and being.

While growing up, the world might have cruelly tried to extinguish the fire but still, a spark would remain. We need to reignite it.

People might try to crush it but they couldn’t because it’s the essence of life. We need to fire it up.

We need to add to it the fuel of dreams, values and perseverance. And fan it with imagination, learning and discipline.

Passion is the genesis of living a life that is truly worth the living.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
