Playing small is life less than you’re capable

I’m reminded of what Nelson Mandela said, “There is no passion to be found in playing small–in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

I’ve been guilty of thinking that what I wanted was beyond my capability. Don’t be guilty of it too.

I think most people may fall in that category. After all, most were never taught that our capabilities are limitless. We are incapable really of anything limitless but when we let our Creator do it for us, the combined capability, you and Him, is really big!

Episode 016: Passion; the willingness to suffer for something you love

artwork-templetDo you have passion for the things you do? With passion and paying the price you can accomplish anything. Without passion your dream is really not yours. It’s probably somebody else’s dream.

Highlights of today’s podcast:

  • The word passion was created in the 12th century to describe the willing suffering of Christ.
  • Passion doesn’t mean just suffering for suffering’s sake; it must be pure and willing suffering.
  • What can suffering teach you that only those who actually start and finish can learn?
  • Passion literally means, “being willing to suffer for what you love.”
  • Starting is easy. Finishing is the only way to learn from suffering.
