Passion plays a huge role in every journey to success. And this is so because it drives confidence and creates the aura of belief and possibility. Like flowers attract the bees, passion woo opportunities and open doors of triumph.
This isn’t about the intimacy between lovebirds but the compelling enthusiasm, desire, energy, zeal or commitment you exude in the pursuit of what matters to you.

This is what we need to do when we fall, my friends.
This is what we need to remember. It is not impossible to succeed if we fall. Instead, the fall might even push us to succeed better than we could have imagined.
Have a great day!
