Build Your Passion for Life Through Constant Challenges

These past few weeks have been extremely busy for me. Besides working on and traveling for interviews, TV spots, and other promotions for my book, we have been building a new home. We are at the point where we are moving in but are still in the middle of completing most of the rooms which makes life in general rather chaotic, to say the least.

There is nothing I’ve done in real estate that has been quite like the experience I’m having in building my own place. It’s both thrilling and stressful, the process is intriguing, and nearly every day presents a new, often minor, but still necessary challenge to deal with. I could be getting frustrated. I could step back and just let the contractors make all the decisions.

I could give into the easy and quick methods and just get this done. But this place will be a sanctuary for me and my wife and a place to gather and build memories with family and friends. So, even though giving this my hands on attention has been time consuming and trying, it is another great challenge and an energizing experience that I know continues to feed my passion for life.

As I talk about in my book How to IGNITE Your Passion for Living, keeping your passion for life strong means constantly challenging yourself. This should be applied to all areas of your life. Whether you’re changing your financial situation, simply trying to improve your cooking skills, or building a home, put the greatest effort into your goal to get the most you can out of it and to grow your passion for everything you do.
