“You’ve got to follow your passion. You’ve got to figure out what it is you love-who you really are. And have the courage to do that. I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dreams.” – Oprah Winfrey
Steve Jobs in his famous Stanford University speech said “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And like any great relationship, it just gets better as the years roll on. So, keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”
I started look at age 22. Fifty-two years and over 16 businesses later I had not found my passion until that day. Steve Jobs and Oprah said. “You will know when you find your Passion.” I was standing in the Gulf of Mexico and talking to myself. “Do something you can do. “I could Walk. I WILL WALK”. Since June 12, 2006 I have never missed a day of walking Briskly. Steve Jobs put it this way. “Like any great relationship, it gets better and better as the years roll on.” He also said this in his speech and I say it right now to you. “Keep looking for your passion until you find it. Don’t settle.”
Walking every day has made me younger and healthier, and I feel better than I was at age 35.
The North-East Texas Health department had me on their billboards as their poster boy. I write about walking, blog about walking, and talk about walking.
If I can transform from a dying old man to a healthy happy, passionate “35-year-old” then you can to.
“How can I do that?” you ask.
You will need only two easy to get, simple to use fuels, WATER and FOOD every day.
Your body has only two tasks to do.
Get in motion, so WALK every day.
SLEEP for seven or more hours every night.
That is it. WATER, FOOD, WALK,SLEEP
This becomes a HABIT. More water, less sugar drinks and eventually no sugar drinks. Fresh and fresh frozen fruits and veggies and nuts. You get better and better habits and have only whole grains, desert once a week, smaller helpings, less modified stuff, and make more good decisions.
Walking every day and sleeping every night become more of a daily ROUTINE.
Now the way you eat and move is a DISCIPLINE and other people start to see you as a leader they want to follow.
You are CONSISTENT. You Are HEALTHY AND HAPPY.
Four simple steps that turn into a habit then a, routine then a discipline, done consistently.
Now you got it.
That is my PASSION
