Passion is THE driver of ALL successful business!
Passion is the fuel. Passion is the reason you do what you do. Passion is a driving force so powerful that NOTHING can stand in its way. Passion gives you direction. Whether you realise it or not Passion underpins the theme of your life. With out passion there will only be struggle!
With out passion you’ll end up in a job or role that less than inspires you. You’ll end up spending time with people that drain you and leave you lifeless and without energy. Without Passion you will never experience the feeling of achievement. Without Passion you will never experience fulfilment. Without Passion your health will suffer and relationships will break down. Lack of Passion in the work place breds disdain, disorder discontent and lacklustre performance.
If you are a manager of people you can not afford not to find the passion within individuals and do everything you can to exploit and make the most of it! Take the time to find out what you are passionate about then take time to find out what the people you work with or employ are passionate about. It will pay dividends on your time investment especially if you then find a way to align roles with passions and organisational values.
To discover your PASSIONS answer these five questions:
1. What do you think about most of the time?
2. What makes your blood boil? get’s you juiced up or really makes you angry?
3. If you could do anything right now that could change the answer above what would it be?
4. What would you put your life on the line for and make a stand for?
5. What do you want to be number 1 at and contribute to the world?
Knowing the answers to these questions will enable you to understand what drives you and what drives your people. The net result is that you, your organisation and your people all experience feeling valued. This in turn leads to more success, better and faster results and above all you will feel content, fulfilled and at ease with your self. knowing and following your passions is the first step towards achieving results. Passion is the driving force that makes you get out of bed on a cold, dark, wet morning and do the thing you are passionate about, even when the odds are stacked against you. And you feel great about doing it.
In the next installment we will look at how KNOWLEDGE impacts your business and how to make the most of it. You can begin to raise your self imposed limits and barriers to going after what you really desire for your life and business. Until next time and to your success
Warmly, Donna Still
