I'd like to start by asking a real simple question. How many of you truly love what you do for a career? Does it excite you, does it motivate you, or does it inspire you to do the best you can? I wish all of you could respond with a 'Yes' but I know that isn't the case. True success comes from following your true passions and allowing them to become what defines what you do.
Many years ago, a friend of mine was a scientist and he was really good at it too. He had professional accolades, a good career, and the respect of his peers. There was just one challenge though. He wasn't passionate about it. He was passionate about taking some of those skills he had learned in the field of science and hitting the 'open market' to see what he could do as an entrepreneur.
This was the best move he could have made and he reached new heights of success once was able to channel his skills and passions into pursuits that would make him happier and more successful. I want you to ask yourself 'What is it that I truly want to do?' Stated another way, if you could make money and a living doing anything you wanted to do, what would that activity be?
The answer to this question should be honest and from the heart. Don't worry about whether or not you think it will work. If you're doing something that you love to do, your passion for it and your understanding of what it means to be successful will open doors that you would have never thought to be there.
Too many people have fallen into the trap of doing something they were qualified to do but that they didn't love doing. This approach to life does pay bills but it is also not a recipe for success. Only true passion for the things we love can drive the kind of success that will be the most whole and the most fulfilling.
I'd like to offer you a quick two-step formula that will help you in this regard. First, brainstorm your true passions and remember not to discount anything. Just list what you love to do. Next, research your areas of passion and determine what possible business opportunities may lie with your passionate pursuits. Chances are, there is more out there than you first thought and they key now is to keep your eyes open for the opportunity that will bring you the kind of success that you've always dreamed of. It is there waiting for you; you just have to open your eyes and see it!
