Every successful enterprise begins with intention. You intend on carrying out a vision. You intend on fulfilling a dream. You intend on bringing into reality a thought of your mind.
All the good intentions in the world are of no value unless they resurrect from your mind into the real world. However, intentions alone do not create success. You must connect your intent with your passion. It is your passion that moves your vision into reality.
A body at rest affords us no idea of any active power to move, and when set in motion, it is rather a passion than an action in it. – Locke
The story of Jesus Christ’s death, burial and resurrection has been zealously preserved. It is a pattern for success. Your vision is not alive until it goes through an internal crucifixion. Jesus’ crucifixion is referred to in theology as his PASSION.
The influence of Jesus’ teachings motivated enemies to cause his premature death. The effect of Christ’s suffering leading up to that death, however, empowered a resurrection of his teachings.
Your intentions will not find power until an external agent is forced upon them. That is why many success stories are born from adversity. The suffering, the denial, the betrayals, the failures all became motivation to make the concept real.
