Passion vs. Desire

Tuesday August 26, 2014 #656

“The heart of human excellence often starts to beat when you discover a pursuit that absorbs you, frees you, challenges you, or gives you a sense of meaning, joy, or passion.”

JAMmer JK asks, “About your post below….(JAM #651 Finding Your Purpose) the overall point is spot on.  Just wondering, how do you define ‘passion’ and what makes it different from ‘desire’.”

Good question on passion vs. desire.  First, I think both are linked to the first element:  purpose.  Passion is related to but greater than simple excitement because it is attached to a real and meaningful purpose.  As the passion builds a real desire grows within us and gives us the courage and strength to take the actions necessary to keep our passion alive and achieve our purpose.  I hope you have identified your purpose!
