Do You Feel the Zeal?

Zeal -- Enthusiastic devotion to a cause, ideal, or goal and tireless diligence in its furtherance. 

You can't change your past mistakes.  You don't have to keep living them over and over either.  Doing this prevents you from living your life to its fullest.  It takes away from the joy of today.  There's something in my gut that tells me, "This is your moment.  You are living at the right time and the right place -- you have everything you need at your fingertips to accomplish your destiny."  I don't know this, I feel this.  It's what zeal is all about.  My hope for you today is that this message strikes a chord.  If you're not feeling the zeal, I have some questions for you:
  1. If you could change one thing in your life today that would ignite the flames inside you yearning to burn, what would it be?
  2. What price are you willing to pay to make that change?
  3. How much pain will you suffer if you choose not to ignite that flame?
I experienced one of those moments yesterday morning near the end of my writing session.  I was so deeply engrossed in my story that I completely lost track of time.  What seemed like minutes turned out to be hours.  I missed my self-imposed writing deadline by thirty minutes without even realizing it.  My readers expect these stories to appear every morning at 8:08 AM, Pacific Time.  I missed that target yesterday because I was feeling the zeal so strongly that time itself seemed to stop.  This passion carries over into every area of my life -- parenting, dating my wife, working, dreaming, etc.  I vow to live my life with zeal.  How about you?  Are you in?  Humor me and add a comment below that says, "I'm in."  Or, if you like to keep your name private, send me an email.  You don't have to give me your name.  Email me by clicking here and put "I'm in" in the subject line.  Have a great day!
