Conviction is a beautiful thing to watch. You can see it in the most determined of athletes, in the commitment of soldiers, and in the eye of a disciplined gym goer or weight loss client. Conviction bleeds from one source and one source alone: passion.
If you aren’t living with conviction about something, then stop wasting your time. Conviction is the driving force that will facilitate the fruition of your passions. It is the heart of hearts of passion, and, without it, we are merely pretending.
If you want to live loud, then make sure the path that you are following is one that you truly believe in with the fullest of hearts. Find your passion, that is, what makes your heart of heart come alive, and resist the temptation of comparing your passion and purpose with others. Hold true to your convictions and do what is right, for there is never a right time to do the wrong thing.
