Take the time to talk to a successful small business owner and you will typically see someone that is passionate about their business. They explains part of the reason that they are successful. It is not work that takes up their time. It is having the ability to do something that they love to do. It is their passion.
Your passion does not have to be something that makes you a lot of money. It may be doing something that improves the lives of others. There is a sense of emotion that shows through in your actions when you are doing something that you are passionate about. It is what gets you up in the morning and you are still thinking about it at the end of the day.
These are your God given talents. When you use them to bring glory to God, He will give you even more passion. You will know in your heart that He is calling you to share your passion with those around you. He will put you in situations where you can share your talents with others.
I see musicians with an amazing amount of talent. A small percentage are the ones that fill stadiums with fans. That does not mean that the others are less talented. It may be a trumpet player on the streets of Savannah that can bring a smile to families passing by. That is how you can use your passion and touch others.
I know some teachers that have such an amazing talent when it comes to working with kids. I see how the children grow up and explore their own talents because of the influence of a single teacher. Teachers are in one of the lower paid professions that require a college degree. Talk to one of them that is passionate about the work that they do and you realize that they do it because of the rewards that they get from their students.
