Fuel Your Passion, Ignite Your Profits
Passion is something within you that provides the continual enthusiasm, focus and energy you need to succeed. True passion does not come from those “feel good” emotions you get from external sources, it comes from within, an almost spiritual force.
The word enthusiasm comes from the Greek word entheos, which means “to be filled with God.” When you are filled with spirit, you are naturally inspired and passionate. Sometimes that passion expresses itself in a dynamic and energetic way and other times it expresses itself in a more peaceful and calm way.
Passionate people are enthusiastic about life and work. They can’t wait to get up in the morning and get started. They are eager and energetic. They are filled with purpose and totally committed to their mission. They enjoy what they do!
Create a plan for your business that incorporates the passions you have for life. Let your Marketing Plan include people and places that you want to do business with. Without identifying what you are passionate about, you might find yourself "a little asleep at the wheel."
Passion is a powerful tool for success and deserves to be an area you consistently work on. Passion makes your days fly by! It helps you get more done in less time. It helps you make better decisions. And it attracts others to you.
Spend more time doing what you love to do. Discover and reconnect with your purpose for doing anything that you do. Realize everything is a choice. And when those choices are connected to your purpose that’s when your enthusiasm will build.
Here are some thoughts to explore:
How can you develop and maintain a passion for the most important areas of your life?
How do you know when you have a true passion and purpose for something?
When you express your passion and enthusiasm, you will become a magnet to others, who will be attracted to your level of energy.
