Tip#175: See How Passion Becomes Magnetic - The Washington Post - 3 Movie Tips

Identifying and sharing your passion is a primary step to achieving your dreams. Indulging in your passion can become an incredible, magnetic force.

I wrote about the power of passion in tip#40 where I saw author Chris Gardner of the book and movie, The Pursuit of Happyness. Gardner said to the audience "Don't think about money, just keep doing what you love doing."

Other quotes that support this is "Do what you love and the money will follow." Well, as I've discovered, the money may not follow right away but the universe will definitely let you know you are on the right track. I've always received confirmation of this and recently got one in a big way.

The Washington Post

While googling my Motivatorman title online I discovered that this blog you are reading has been referenced on dozens of other sites. Then, to my surprise, I discovered that an article was written about me and my blog tips in The Washington Post. I was stunned at first and then was filled with overflowing positive emotional energy!

In the short article the writer referenced 3 websites and one of them was famed author and speaker Robin Sharma who wrote The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. I felt honoured to be included with this man and later even more excited because a business colleague pointed out that I got top billing over Sharma. Click here to read article.

This was automatic proof to what I teach in my motivational programs and what successful people around the world have been saying about following your passion. Following your passion is fuel for your drive to action and for connecting you with people who share your interests.

3 Examples of Movie Hero Passions

Think about the movie, Forrest Gump where Gump had a sudden urge to run from one side of the US to the other. His running attracted the press and then other people who were compelled to join his run.

See how Elle in the film Legally Blonde develops a passion for practicing law while up against prejudice towards her fashion preferences and bubbly personality. Despite her challenges she perseveres and her passion and conviction becomes magnetic attracting the support and encouragement she needs for greater success.

And see how boxer Jim Braddock fights with passion in the movie Cinderella Man. Based on a real life story during the great depression, Braddock's courage and perseverance becomes a symbol of hope for thousands of people in poverty. His passion inspires so many others to support his dream.

Make Your Passion Visible

So do your very best to follow your passions without question. Make your passions and personal interests visible so others can share in your excitement. Your passions will attract like-minded individuals and can also make a difference in someone's life.

All you have to do is indulge in whatever you truly enjoy. You will automatically radiate to the world an energy that is a powerful, magnetic force.
