A great friend of mine sent me a 3-minute video filmed by Jason Silva, a filmmaker and futurist.  As I watched, I couldn’t help but be attracted to him. I was so drawn to his passion!  What he was saying was not as intriguing as his passion for what he was saying. I am confident if I asked him what his vision for the future world was, he would be able to clearly answer with so much passion I would believe it to be true. Check out his video.

That same week, that same friend of mine, invited me to an intimate show with singer songwriter, Brett Dennan.  I couldn’t take my eyes off him for the entire two hours he played. Why? Because I could feel his love for music.  If I asked him his vision for his work as a musician, I am confident he would be able to clearly answer with a huge amount of passion.  And in all his mellowness, I would believe him, I would buy into his ideas, and based on his passion, I will forever buy his music. Check him out.

These two men are clearly different but they are both living their vision, it shows in their work, their ability to draw me in, their ability to attract me, even if I don’t necessarily believe in their ideas. They have manifested there vision because they know deep in their heart who they are and what they believe in.

Carl Jung said, “Your vision will become clear when you can look into your own heart”  I love this, because we often have all of these ideas of what we think we want to do, or what we think others want us to do.  But they don’t come from our heart.  If we truly looked into our heart we would find our deepest desires, our deepest ambitions, and we would find fulfillment and joy and passion.

What if we lived our greatest life, what if we had as much passion as Jason Silva or Brett Dennan, what if we were aligned with our deepest self?  Imagine the affect we would have on the world as a whole.

We can sit down and create a vision, we can write about it, we can create vision boards, affirmations, etc. But it is only true and unique to us if it comes straight from our heart and that is when we become passionate about what we do!

Thank you for reading, listening, for being YOU.
