I was reading the Travelers Gift this morning by Andy Andrews. I love this book! When I read this, it really gets my heart racing for a vision bigger than life.
David Ponder was on a voyage with Christopher Columbus in this part of the story and Columbus had a deep passion to find this new world despite all the ridicule he had gone through in a 19 year period of his life. Yes, he saw his vision for 19 years before he even set sail!
He truly believed the world was not flat; it was a sphere!
Out in the ocean he could see what others could not; land. Though it was not physically there, his vision told him otherwise. It’s a powerful story on passion.
In the story Columbus said that “Getting started or getting finished-both ends require a demonstration of Passion. Passion is a product of the heart. Passion is what helps you when you have a great dream. Passion breeds conviction and turns mediocrity into excellence! Your passion will motivate others to join you in the pursuit of your dream. With passion, you will overcome insurmountable obstacles.
You will become unstoppable!”
He goes onto say that “When confronted with a challenge the committed heart will search for a solution. The undecided heart searches for an escape.”
Do you have a dream big enough that you can generate a demonstration of unwavering passion?
