From the Vault: Deviantism #12



I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the power of passion. And how passion and resilience are really two sides of the same coin.

Human truth – you enjoy doing the things you’re good at. Relatedly, you are good at the things you enjoy doing.

Human truth – roadblocks and speed bumps will inevitably arise, just as surely as the sun will come up. Setbacks are the stuff of life. At least, a life that is engaged, and purposeful.

Human truth – you’re infinitely more likely to get up when setbacks knock you back, when you’re chasing something that really matters to you.

Life is about finding your passion – things you want to be doing more often than not, things you want to spending the better part of every day pursuing.

When your focus is around your passion, it’s so much easier to be resilient. Almost bulletproof to the setbacks, roadblocks, and speed bumps life will impose.

Your will is greater. Your ambition stronger. Your intensity and urgency and pace more amplified.

Nothing can get in your way, when you’re in pursuit of something that matters.

Passion begets resilience. Full stop.

Our passion is making sure each and every deviant is operating along a trajectory of personal ambition – things that personally matter to each and every one of us.

And our collective ambition, our collective passion, is to create the world’s kindest company.

And no amount of polar vortex, or failed internet access, or lack of meeting space, or you name it, will come close to getting in our way.

Quite the opposite. It will merely serve as an even greater motivator to make something special happen. Because, after all, that’s what we’re here to do.
