Passion: Defining Success, One Word at a Time


Passion… an excerpt from the book:

Defining Success: One Word at a Time by Gary A. McAbee



The word passion has several different meanings that evoke strong reactions. My initial reaction to hearing the word is to think of something related to romance. This idea is not incorrect, because passion as it relates to romance is the same as it relates to success. We can also use the definition of passion as a strong desire to achieve victory. It includes all of the components we will use as Motivation for the World. Passion also means knowing what field or vocation you want to be in to make your dreams come true. Let us start firs with passion as a means to accomplish great things.

I believe nothing of major significance has ever been completed without a strong desire to something great. The desire to be great is not an accident. Victory is not achieved by chance. It begins with faith, and the belief that success will come if we state exactly what we want. Then that dream that aligns itself with the right vision. Passion is the spark that continues the process of creating the finished product. Passion has to be involved in every step going forward. If not, the creative processes we all possess will be in constant conflict as we move toward success.

Passion needs to be injected in various stages of the success process you will learn in this book. As a teaser, I will share how passion must take its rightful place during these critical concepts, starting with creating goals. Completing a substantial goal requires a heavy dose of passion and enthusiasm. Goal setting is not the most exciting thing to do, especially when the end results seem so far away. This is why passion always helps; in fact, it can never hurt when setting goals! I sincerely hope that you will remember this as you complete the next call-to-action exercise.

Passion is needed when it is time to build our knowledge base. Success requires embarking on a journey of continuous knowledge and reinvention. Again, this is not the most glamorous part of the process, so an injection of passion will help. Seriously, who like to do extensive research when there are a million better things to do? Not many people, but everyone who wants to achieve any victory has to engage in some sort of self-paced and self-guided study. I call this doing the dirty work that many people never do. Congratulations if you are the one who can do this without much motivation. For everyone else, add a little passion while building your knowledge base.


Affirmation: I will find my passion and use my God-given abilities to pursue the outcome I desire.

  1. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.

    I’ve read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you few interesting things or
    tips. Maybe you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I desire to read even more things about it!


  2. First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if
    you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and
    clear your head before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out
    there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!


  3. Wonderful blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m
    completely confused .. Any recommendations? Cheers!


    1. You should start with WordPress and write, write, write! Decide what content you want to publish, then put it out there. Remember this- for new writers this is a marathon, not a sprint. Results (views/reads) take time, but eventually they will come if you write quality content. Good luck!
