Do you remember the last time you felt passionate for anything? What was it about? Was it maybe about your first love? Maybe it was about a new Phone you bought. Or was it about being hired in your current position? Is it possibly about a new hobby, like learning Tango travelling to a country? Can you still feel the Energy, thinking about it?
The Thunderstorm in your Heart
Well this morning I saw a Video about “Summer in Israel”. This was a short movie, produced by Shai Cohen and Jonathan Karmi (for the Video click here). I saw places I have been, places I felt so passionate for and I feel it again. Suddenly I was missing Israel. This was new to me. I never knew, a country could ever make me feel like that.
Some time ago I met a friend, also working in startup industry. We talked about startup scene and Global Hotspots as well as about which countries we would move to for work and why. We talked about ideas to start a business on our own. This conversation was meant to be switching to Israel, as the Israeli Startup-Hub is the second biggest in the world Click here to learn more about Startup-Hubs). My friend went to the long night of startups in Berlin, afterwards. She wrote me later that this was the first day she thought about Israel. Talking to startup people (partly from Israel) about Israel made her now, unexpectedly, also passionate about the Startup industry over there as well as the Israeli mentality.
Suddenly there are moments in life where I feel the fire, the passion for that country again. I feel like there is a thunderstorm in my heart. If I believed in signs, those moments would hit them directly into my face, asking me to wake up and to go for my dreams,for this dream, also if this would mean to follow the risky way, but my passion. Good that I love writing for Coachiendo even more and that Berlin is an amazing city. This is why this Thunderstorm in my heart strong, but is to weak to cause changes at the moment.
