Where does our inner passion come from?

The fire that burns and sparkles inside us even when the world seems dark, it drives us onward. Where does it originate?

Report as

Sometimes I think it comes from extremely positive stubbornness! I developed some pretty fierce passion by determining what I needed to be and do in order to have the kind of life I wanted. I hung onto those ideas like a rabid wolverine. I built private, personal rules around those ideas so that nobody could dismantle those ideas. I held onto it year after year as I built my own world. The passion is more subtle now because everything worked out and is normal now. Positive stubbornness!

That last comment of your reminded me of a Japanese company i worked for. They were required to have their accounting done by March 31 each year but that target was rarely achieved, so they went to March 32, March 33, March 34...

I've been trying all my life to spend do something special on June 31.

Well brown sandcastle, I work in age care & I'm really passionate about my job. I'm studying as well for my job & I haven't been in a tAfe adult learning class room for about 5 years. I just did a first for the year written 15 page assignment & got 93%. I'm no super brain. But my passion for my work allowed me to give the assignment my best shot & I wasn't well when I did it either. That shows my passion for the elderly I care for. That's an example for you of what we are talking about. Reaching inside yourself & giving your very best in & to life.

Oh ok! Thanks for the example :)

From your soul. It gives you spirit and personality! It makes you, you! God given? Ancestral DNA ? Environment? Who knows? "Blame" or credit who/whatever you want. It's just there and makes you unique.

It comes from recognizing your ambitions, establishing your goals, and determining you will obtain them.

I don't know about "inner passion", but I get my "passion" from God & family.

I have always believed that this 'inner passion' is a manifestation of the soul. A human is not a body with a soul, but a soul with a body. simply put, the 'inner passion' is you in your entirety, and you are it. Your conviction strengthens the mind, which controls the body, which is one with your soul, which is everything.
(that probably sounds weird. basically, inner passion is not something that comes from you, but rather, it is you)

I believe it comes from your internal psyche. Our drive to succeed, to persevere, to go on. It is different in everyone.

Passion is the internal force you put into the things you do. Passion is energy, passion is action, passion is your inner power. Passion is an emotional state that compels you to act. When you add passion to your desire or goal, you get great results.

Yes you do. If your heart & soul isn't in it then it's not worth even attempting as it will be a less greater outcome than if you put every once of energy you had in you to achieve it.

It's a primal instinct & one that allows us to try again in the facing of adversity.
It's the strength to battle on, to protect our young & to strive to be the best we can be at whatever we choose to do.
It's a driving force that allows us to step up when needed & succeed without letting the fear of failing stop us in our tracks before we have even begun.

Lots of good answers from different perspectives, and much truth in them.

From another point of view, I think the passion comes from our own self-image. If you see yourself as the most successful person you can be relative to your own talent, ability and interests that passion will be allowed to flow. Whatever you undertake, whether it be employment, a hobby, a sport, a pastime, go into it as thoroughly as you're able, and your passion for that interest will lift you to an enjoyment of life you might otherwise have failed to find.

Nice one Dodgy. I got a whoops alert yesterday & couldn't put an answer through to another members question so that puts a whole nother dimension to Blades dark side of the moon. Maybe where they sent me was the mind games department where you think your paranoid or something. It told me to try & send it through again as it didn't save it. It still didn't twice more so they were toying with me. Lol

Evolution has left you with a desire to fit in. This is easy to see, for if an individual was shunned and exiled by the tribe, they'd face certain death on their own.

Inner passion is just another way to try and fit in.
