NYAO, Ep: 070 – Reigniting Passion
The boys had the immense privilege of hosting Tony Imbarlina Sr. as he decided to do an impromptu join in! This episode centers around practices, life hacks, and theories to try out when you’re having a hard time fueling your passion. Each delves into their personal moments where they’ve struggled, and what they did to help themselves, especially when there’s so much at stake. Melon kicks it off, sharing his inability to find passion towards a sport he’s loved his entire life. He analyzes the real consequence when a rugby practitioner is just going through the motions. He quickly points out that the risk of injury is extremely high! That was enough to force him to have an honest discussion with all his teammates. Raf admitted that reigniting passion is a constant battle for him. His “go to” methodology is always to “just do something”. He’s found that simply keeping his dead down and grinding at work generally generates the new motivation he’s been seeking. Mike reflects on some of his toughest moments and realizes that using his closest friends and family as a sounding board is his most effective tool. Tony Sr. openly speaks about using his beautiful wife Louise as an accountability partner who is honest when he’s not being his best and suggests that we all do that. These are just the tip of the iceberg.
Please share your thoughts about this episode and more importantly, we hope this encourages our listeners to spend some time thinking about what works best for them when they must reignite their passion. We encourage all of our listeners to reach out to us with your own stories. We love reading your insights, feedback, and how we can add more value to your day.
