Passion is everything. It trumps intelligence, talent, and organization. You will never get far without passion.
Steve Jobs was right: “People with passion can change the world for the better.”
Those who knew Jobs well will tell you that his passion was not about computers, but the impact that personal computers could have on the world. Similarly, Elon Musk isn’t passionate about space, but about making humanity a multi-planetary species.
Jordan Daykin, a contributor to Forbes, defines passion well: “Passion is the energy to keep going when all has gone pear-shaped, when money has run dry, and your physical energy is missing in action.”
If you are to be successful in your recovery, it will take passion. You must really want it. You need the passion of the psalmist: “Passion for God’s house will consume me” (Psalm 69:17).
Recovery Step: Does your passion for recovery consume you? If not, your passion is too low, putting your recovery in jeopardy. Pray for passion.
