Successful people don't have some magic formula...
They are just persistent S.O.B's ;-)
They keep charging forward no matter how many times they encounter failure.
This is why you must start with a burning desire. You must start with passion! (Which brings us full circle...)
So, before you decide to pick a job, career or business to pursue, you must…
Find Your Passion!
If your goal is to become successful and wealthy, you can really speed up the process by finding your passion and then doing it.
Many of us pick a job and/or career that we don't really enjoy. Our decisions are affected by our parents, piers, field of study, income potential and so on. Very rarely do we pick a career that we actually enjoy.
When we spend most of our days working on something that we don't really like, we become off balance. In contrast, when we choose to do what we enjoy, we align ourselves with the creative forces of our mind, and that of the universe. Things begin to flow smoothly, without much friction.
Successful people are not only successful because they have the money, and the freedom and time to enjoy it. The truly successful people are those who enjoy the work they do. They have fun doing what they do to earn a living.
Moreover, successful people love doing what they do because it also fulfills them. It gives them a sense of accomplishment, a sense of contribution, a sense of purpose.
It gives their lives meaning! They actually feel and know that they're making a difference, that they're contributing.
That's ultimate success!
Anyone can read a book on making money, force themselves to take massive action and make a lot of money. But most people who do things this way realize that they're not really happy. They discover that they hate their jobs and they hate waking up every morning to go do what they don't enjoy. At the end of the day, if that work doesn't mean much to them, they'll always feel a void in their lives.
Besides, if you have to wake up every morning dreading the work you have ahead of you because you don't enjoy doing it, that's not success. That's a job!
It doesn't matter whether you're working for someone else or running your own business. If you don't love what you're doing, if you don't have a passion for it, it will be just another job to you.
Successful people go for a satisfying job, a satisfying career… from the get go! They start right by choosing to a job or business that they're passionate about, that they loving doing.
A successful life is a fulfilling life.
Do what you love and the money will follow.
Some people go for a career that pays the most. That is their only deciding criteria. It's not the smart way to go. Many of these same people, after having the kind of money that they want, find out that they're still not happy with their lives. Some of them decide to change careers at that point and do what they enjoy more. Others simply stay where they are and continue doing what they don't enjoy.
You don't have to do that. You can save time by simply starting with what you love to do!
Successful people know that when they find something they really enjoy doing, the money will follow. It's a natural law of life. You will need to start believing in this same law, and trusting it.
When you love what you're doing, you will also often do a much better job than someone who doesn't enjoy doing that work. As you can imagine, your product will turn out to be much superior than the other person's. And everyone loves quality.
So, ask yourself another very important question...
“If I had all the money in the world and all the free time to enjoy it, what would I be doing with my life?”
What career would you choose? How would you contribute? What is the one thing that you enjoy doing the most? What are you most passionate about?
And don't say that you'll simply eat and sleep all day. As wonderful as that sounds, you will eventually get bored and become unhappy. (Trust me, I've tried it. ;-)
Just look at all those rich and famous people that had all the money and fame but still resorted to drugs or alcohol to try to feel good, to find happiness. That clearly shows that money and free time are not enough!
You need to be doing something you're passionate about, something you enjoy and love. Something that gives your life meaning and helps you to contribute. You need a purpose!
Find your passion and you will never work a day in your life!
Most of the fears and doubts you have that stops you from “just going for it” will also fade away when you actually enjoy doing what you’re doing.
