Find your passion, but don’t expect it to last.
Setting yourself a challenging goal is much like starting a long-term romantic relationship.
You’ll be off to a good start when the flames of passion fill the air with excitement, but make no mistake… there comes a time those flames will die out.
What will emerge from those flames is up to you… either it’s nothing but grey ashes, or it’s something more profound and sustainable.
To build a marriage you’ll need to accept passion eventually needs to turn into love. To master something difficult, you’ll need to accept the same.
It’s lonely at the top, because few have the stamina to keep going when passion turns into something that looks more like a routine.
The people who succeed in building something that lasts, find their passion and stick with it long enough to have it transition into a deep form of love.
When the flames die, make sure the warmth stays.
