In order to be successful, you must do the things that you are most passionate about. How do you know when you are passionate about something?
You will know that you are passionate about something when you feel the urge to talk about it with great emotion to anyone that will listen.
Or you will think about your idea day and night. When you are passionate about something don’t worry about what others may think it. Most people will rain on your parade, if your idea or passion doesn’t sound good to them.
Most people cannot see success in something, if you aren’t already successful with it. You understand what I mean? If not, I will explain it further. Usually if you aren’t already making money with something most people cannot see your vision.
So, if you ever feel the need to talk to someone about your vision, make sure you talk to someone that is encouraging; someone you know has your best interest at heart and will be able to give you the words and advice you need in order to go forward with it and succeed.
Only you know what is truly in your heart. And if you do not have a person that is encouraging in your life, go online, go to the library and research someone that has the same vision that you have, read their encouraging words find out how they did it. And remember in order to be successful you must chase your dream and not the money.
This is where alot of people get confused. You must always stay focused on ways to carry out your dream and once you are doing this more ideas will come to you on how to get your work out there and the money will come. Know in your heart that if it is truly your passion and you are following it, you will succeed.
Don’t listen to the naysayers.
We are all born with great instincts, gut feeling or inner guidance. You will know if you are doing the right thing by the way you feel. Your feelings are usually best indicator for knowing if you are on the right path.
Even if you fail the first time or few times, try, try again. Sometimes we are tested in life to make sure we are strong enough or ready at that time to go after our dreams.
Edison took 1000 tries before he developed the light bulb. When a reporter asked, "How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?" Edison replied, "I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps”.
Inventing the light bulb was something that he believed in and was passionate about. Even though it didn’t work out the way he planned at first he didn't quit, he kept going until his vision came to life.
When Zig Ziglar a successful motivational speaker wrote his first book no publishing company would publish it because they didn't believed that it would sell.
So he decided to print the book himself and after he sold thousands of copies the publishers finally took notice and decided to publish the book because they now believed.
This further clarifies my earlier statement where I said “Most people cannot see success in something, if you aren’t already successful with it”. This is why you shouldn’t let others influence your decision into not doing something that you feel passionate about.
Zig Ziglar knew his book would sell, he believed in himself and didn’t listen to what anyone else thought about his idea and now he is a very successful author and motivational coach. Go for your dreams, follow your passion!
If you are passionate about something then more than likely there are others out there that are just as passionate about it and will benefit from your work.
We are all here to discover and fulfill our life purpose and if whatever you are doing will positively affect the world and help others then go for it. What do you have to lose? Not one thing! You will only have something to gain and hopefully it will be to feel happy, healthy, wealthy and whole.
Sending Happiness and Love,
