When it comes to success, it is not just about having a great idea; it’s the willingness to work hard, really hard, to make your idea a reality! When you’re passionate about something, that process, all that blood, sweat and tears, is a much easier process than you’d imagine.
You can’t fake passion.
Remember, when you’re passionate, you’re willing to get the job done…whatever it takes!! And that’s honestly what I’ve found to be one of the biggest keys to success…having a passion and a very powerful WHY.
When you have a very strong and powerful reason for why you’re doing something, then you get very passionate about it.
(Have you hit a wall in your mind that’s making it tricky to shift your mindset and find your passion? Here’s my best tip for getting in the zone.)
The reason I started my health and fitness journey was because I needed it to survive after my parents’ death. It saved my life and changed my focus. And then I wanted to communicate that feeling, to the rest of the world.
Passion is what makes you get out of bed in the morning, gets you riled up. It’s that stuff that you actually want to do.
If you have an idea and you’re not passionate from the start, then you’ll never stick with it. As you get excited, you build momentum.
You will accomplish anything if you have a powerful enough WHY. I think this concept of the power of why was best illustrated by Darren Hardy…
Put a little inspirational quote here. Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. – Harriet Tubman
Imagine there’s a balance beam that’s 4” wide, 6” high, and 100’ long. If I asked you to come up and walk from one end of the room from the other on the beam, I’d imagine you would do it. After all, there’s hardly any risk.
Now, what if I hung the same 3” balance beam in between two skyscrapers 15 stories high and you to walk across the buildings. If you’re as sane as I hope you are, I’d imagine that you would pass.
Now, what if I told you that the building on the other side is on fire, and your child is on top of the skyscraper that’s 15 stories high. I’m sure you wouldn’t even think twice about it…you would run across…because saving your child is a very powerful why.
That’s the strength of having a powerful why. I encourage you to find your why and nourish your passion and let that passion connect you to your dreams. Remember, whatever your dreams, follow their trail, go wherever they lead and chase your passions.
