follow your enthusiasm

words & photo by me

where does your heart beat the strongest?
what makes you feel the most vibrant?
what transfixes all your senses?

go and do that.

if you follow your enthusiasm,
you’ll reach great heights.

it will sustain you in your climb to the top.

the world needs more passionate people
who do what they love, and love what they do.

choose to spend your days
with whatever makes your heart sing,
not chasing your tail
in a round and round, never-ending game.

half-hearted commitments
produce half-hearted results.

pour all of your desire
into the work itself,
not the fruit of its rewards.

don’t let the anticipated results of your actions
be the sole cause for your motivation,
doing so will leave you breathless, tired and hungry.
