Passion can be like jet fuel, propelling you with lightning speed toward your dreams. It can also be an intoxicating elixir that blinds you from the realities of the situation or circumstances you might be in. The passion that you leverage to accomplish great feats, is the same passion that can hurt you as it relates to building meaningful, sustainable relationships – if you don’t put passion in its proper perspective.
In relationships, you need both purpose and passion. Unwittingly, people tend to rely on the persuasion of passion more than the principles of purpose.
While I believe passion and purpose are both needed in relationships, there is a distinct difference in terms of the benefits they provide. Here are a few differences between what passion and purpose does in relationships:
o Passion provides connection; purpose provides conviction.
o Passion provides fervor; purpose provides foundation.
o Passion provides momentum; purpose provides direction.
o Passion provides motivation; purpose provides meaning.
Check back next week as I talk more about how you develop purpose-driven relationships.
