Passion is the underlying key to success to do anything, especially when you are starting a business. Most people believe that in order to start a successful business one needs major capital and money. However, more important than capital one must have the true passion and desire to succeed.
Passion fuels resilience and provides you with the ambition to learn. Furthermore to strive to become more competent at what you do. More importantly than anything else, it gives you the ability to focus.
My father was a teacher. Growing up, our basic necessities were always taken care of. However, my father had to take additional jobs to earn extra money to supplement his teacher’s salary.
As I became a businessman. I knew that I wanted to ensure I had a career that enabled me to go beyond providing for my family’s basic needs. However, to give us a lifestyle where money was not an issue the only way was business. Hence, I learned from my father, when you do anything, you have to have passion.
In any field or occupation, focus allows you to achieve complex tasks. When you are able to achieve complex tasks, your passion is fuelled by the success that you achieve. Passion is your drive, ambition, and the love of what you do and who you serve. It provides you with a very special view of the world and gives you a daily purpose in your life.
Stop and ask yourself: What is your true passion? What makes you excited about what you are doing? The difference between those who push through difficult times and those who fail and give up – is Passion!
