Passion follows commitment

When at a crossroads, we often outline our next steps in terms of our passions.  We think that by following passion, we will be excited to commit.  The best example of passion/commitment is marriage.

Marriage is a commitment.  Most relationships begin with passion, but don’t end in marriage.  Our passion fades without the commitment.  The most successful marriages begin with commitment and true passion follows as we grow to love the intricacies of our spouse.

This principle applies everywhere in life.  Try first making a commitment.  Learn the discipline to fulfill that commitment.  You just might find your passion in the process.
