Fire in the belly is powerful

Do you remember those times when you've felt that fire in your belly to do something you really wanted to do? Perhaps it was a dream you pursued? A project that really engaged you? Joining an organization that really fed you? Do you remember the power of that fire in the belly?

A French military general during World War I, Ferdinand Foch, said, "The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire." Isn't that the truth?

To turn that into language that isn't about weapons, we can say that the most powerful incentive and motivation is the human soul on fire. You know when you see people with that fire in the belly, with deep-felt passion. You just know. You see how they get where they want to go. They get things done.

This quote can help you reflect on what sets your soul on fire—and then see how you can incorporate that into your life. Unleash the power of your passions and follow your dreams. See where that takes you.
