Passion is a passionate word, I’ll admit there is something appealing about the word. Now, imagine the appeal that the action itself has.
From the observation of human interactions I have done I have noticed the power of passion as a salient factor in the attraction process. Passionate people are usually well spoken about the things they are passionate about.
It’s obvious that it is hard, if not impossible to be passionate about something you don’t understand. I believe the difference between liking something and being passionate about something is knowledge. (You can only be passionate about them once you have full knowledge of them.)
In day to day conversations, we are constantly drawn to this phenomenon called passion. People with depth (rare as they are) are very attractive because they have a gift for prompting comfort from the people around them. For some of us though who lack depth in conversation, our secret weapon is talking about the things we are passionate about.
That way, the people we are conversing with get an easy glimse into the kind of people we are, the way we act when we love and we give them an image of us to be loving people.
Dale Carnagie was stressed about how getting people to talk about themselves is an a good way To Win Friends And Influence People and I totally agree, triggering passion is definitely an easy way to attract new people (or old ones).
It’s double effect cannot be disputed as well, talking about the things you love has a similar effect. We are most expressive and eloquent when we talk about the things we are acquainted with, and you are most acquainted with the things that you love and the energy you exude is commands attention and attracts even intimacy.
If you are not passionate about anything you are repulsive to everything, learn to love your craft, your creative outlet, your beliefs and your ideals, you will definitely attract people. The beauty of it is you will not only attract those with similar interest or beliefs but you will attract everyone you share your passion with.
