I recently wrote a paper explaining how passion was required for manifesting most choice mental and physical reality. After writing the paper I came to realize that I carry my share of goals, but I don't carry enough passion for their creation. I carry some passion, but not a lot.Not enough to make the majority of my goals reality. I'd like to have passion for these goals but right now I just don't. This really surprised me. I had well defined goals, but little passion for physically going after them. My desires were all mental, all in my mind. I'd like to offer my understanding on how the lack of passion is the #1 killer of success. Listen up as we learn how to build the passion necessary to naturally manifest our choice mental and physical reality.
