My friend, there is a fire inside of you. You might not know it or pay attention to it, but it is there. Maybe you’ve buried it in a distant corner of your heart out of fear that you will not be able to follow its calling. Maybe you’ve not yet discovered its true potential. No matter how hard you try to ignore it, deep inside you lies a PASSION- a relentless cheerleader pushing you to be the most extraordinary version of yourself.
What do you want to be remembered for? What is your deepest desire for your life? If money, prestige, power, and personal circumstances were of no concern to you, what would you want to be doing right now? Chasing Your Fire is about knowing that you were destined for more than an average life and doing something about it. It is about pursuing the things that you LOVE and feel compelled to do. It’s about celebrating the activities, people, and dreams that make your soul come alive.
In each of us lies a desire to matter, a desire to be known, a desire to be remembered. Don’t let fear, money, prestige, or personal circumstances hinder you from pursuing the things that provide you with purpose in life and work. Just like a candle is much less useful without a flame, you will not be living to your fullest potential if you are not actively chasing your fire.
