Our passions are the winds that propel our vessel. Our reason is the pilot that steers her. Without winds the vessel would not move and without a pilot she would be lost.
~~ A Proverb
Today’s quote is an old proverb.
Sometimes the old proverb are the wisest sayings and quotes. OK, were going to have a vocabulary lesson here. In our Toastmasters meetings, we usually have a Word of the Day. This is to help us increase our vocabulary. They are usually words or phrases that have some meaning or usage that would be beneficial for the members to know and possibly use.
Today’s Word of the Day is Proverb. From Dictionary.com the definition of Proverb (as a noun) is:
Now, what does this quote mean to me?
Passion is what drives us to succeed, keeps us motivated. It is the desire, or feeling that we have for something. That love for something.
The proverb talks about Our reason being the pilot that steers us. I feel this is talking about what I call our WHY. The Why we have the passion. It is critical in Goal Getting to understand what our WHY for wanting to achieve our goal(s) is. The Reason/WHY is what will keep us motivated when we want to quit or go astray. Without the WHY, the Reason, our pilot, our vessel will be lost. Without the passion or the drive we won’t have the desire to continue.
When you set your goal, Know Your WHY, and have a passion for Getting the Goals You Set. Those two will guide you to success.
Go listen to our earlier episode about Why You Should Know Your Why.
