Passion certainly makes things you more interested in whatever you are involved in at the moment. When you are displaying passion in response to a person, situation or event you are definitely more committed whether it be positive or negative.
What about the passion in your business and your life? In my personal business coaching practice I have observed the power of passion to move my clients, whether they be self-employed business owners, entrepreneurs, solo professionals, corporate managers or corporate executives to achieve more.
Passion: The First Step To Greater Achievement
When you are starting up your own business you have a great deal of passion. Yet, once you have made it over the initial hurdles to where it is not about survival but running a small business, I have seen business owners lose their passion.
How come? Many self-employed business owners love the creation process. They are very passionate about it. On the other hand, the maintenance of the daily routine to insure the continued growth and success of the business is not what they are passionate about.
In the corporate world I find that many people are doing well financially but they are not working well. They feel trapped either by the process or the people around them and they slowly lose their passion. They don’t see a way out. They don’t see a better future.
To have greater achievement and to live beyond the ordinary you must have great desire. Weak desires will bring weak results. Have passion to keep the fire strong for greater achievement.
Passion Increases Your Focus
Think about when you have been very focused on something. When you are focused and intense you are displaying passion. Interestingly, when you want something badly enough, your first step is to bring extra focus to making it a reality.
When you bring passion you are more likely to succeed because you are more focused on having a successful result.
Passion Will Change You
As Zig Ziglar once said, “Don’t be a wandering generality. Be a meaningful specific.” When you have passion and focus it will change you. You will become more dedicated and productive. And people will notice. Very often your passion will have more influence than your personality.
It has been said that “Enthusiasm makes things 1,000 percent better. Bring your passion and enthusiasm and it will increase your influence.
Passion Takes You From The Impossible To The Possible
As Audrey Hepburn once said, “Nothing is impossible; The word itself says I’m possible.” Let passion fire your soul and impossibilities will vanish. As John Maxwell says, “A fire in your heart lifts everything in your life.” That’s why passionate leaders are so effective. A leader with great passion and few skills always outperforms a leader with great skills and no passion.
