In his Buzz, Unexpected Passion Migrations, @Ali Anani asks, “Where is the passion?” Because of Dr. Ali’s choice of the word “migration”, I will expand on the question and ask “Where is the passion coming from?”
Migration is a key factor in the discussion of passion. After all, passion is made up of emotions. I don’t consider passion an emotion; I consider it a hybrid of emotions.
We are “moved” into feeling or experiencing emotion. The same area of the brain that communicates emotion also communicates to our muscles as to when and how to move.
When passion migrates, where does it originate from? I think it is connected to motivation.
"Every action needs to be prompted by a motive." - Leonardo da Vinci
From my perspective, passion is motivated by wonderment or as Einstein describes it, curiosity.
"I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious." -Albert Einstein
In her comment, @Fatima Williams writes, “…we don't need to be an expert at something to make a change or do something different. All we need is the passion and drive to do something different .”
Dr. Ali took the word wonderment from my comment and expanded on Fatima's formula: “wonderment + passion + doing something different”, can lead to change, to migration, to movement.
Dr. Ali’s Buzz reminds me that passion comes from seeing the world with wonderment and then how each element sparks our ability to see the next and so on. If we narrow our scope of "expertise" and limit the connections of what we know from everything else attached to it, our passion is not fueled and will die out. There is no migration, no movement; only stagnation.
