Passion To Succeed

"Spiritual Intelligence" (SI) is the ability of a person to acknowledge and observe established principles that can affect his potential to succeed. This may be simple and practical, but some have missed the point. The article below is written to illustrate how a principle affect a person's career.

"When you are full, you even hate honey. When you are hungry, even what is bitter tastes sweet" (Proverbs 27:7)

What motivates people to succeed is "passion"... passion is also defined as "hunger". In basketball championships, we often hear from game anchors that "the hungrier team often gets the crown".

When Filipino boxing hero Manny Paquiao moved up in weight and fought Antonio Barrera of Mexico, as his countryman, I thought then, he is not yet ready-- I am afraid for Manny because Barrera has the built and experience. But I was proven wrong. I underestimated the hunger and passion of Manny-- he prepared, worked hard, got a plan, took the risk and made a step of faith... He won! Though his gallant stand with another Mexican boxer, Eric Morales, is not enough, Manny was bloodily defeated. After he was humbled, he is still determined to get a second crack. Inspite of what he experienced, his defeat can't quench his passion to succeed.

Passion is hunger-- to a hungry person, the choice of food is not as important as the need to be filled. What drives people to his destiny is this hunger. Unless a man knew the purpose for his existence, there will be no hunger. Success is not only measured by money, or the title attached to a person's name, but the fulfillment of one's calling.

When there are setbacks, like in the case of Manny Paquiao, it is passion that will keep us going...

If a person doesn't have passion, he may be wearing the wrong hat. A person must dig into his heart and check his dreams, his desires. These treasures are kept in man's heart.

In my short life, this is what I learned. The more I get into my calling, instead of being filled, the more I become passionate...
