What are you passionate about? Find your passion! Pursue passion. Be passionate. The list goes on and on. Over time it’s enough to make one’s stomach tumble and turn.
It feels that if your career is anything less than a “four-alarm passion-fest” it’s unworthy of your effort, and it’s time to move to something that will set your passion on fire.
On behalf of your future, and everyone that depends on you, please take a moment and re-think this strategy before blindly jumping in.
“Pity the poor fool who is merely committed to showing up honorably and doing their best work.”
I AM GUILTY AS SIN!
There is no-one more guilty of this than me. I’ve overused the word; I’ve spoken about it publicly, incorporated passion into my seminars, written blogs about it, and it has shown up in my books on occasion. It’s true I am guilty of being bitten by the passion plague as much as anyone out there.
Instead of being passionate, acknowledge and recognize the things and activities where you are naturally good. Where do your talents lie? Don’t be modest, you have skills, and it’s time to celebrate whatever they are. The big and the small; undoubtedly some of these you likely take for granted so drill down and look closely.
There is a lot of self-satisfaction in knowing who you are and your capabilities. Concentrate and take pride in the things that work for you. Working and committing to the skills and or natural talents you have enhances your chances of success.
Whose with me?
No need to sign up for anything, no club to join, or dues to pay, we don’t have a jersey or logo, all you need is a bit of will power and a personal commitment to be a little more thoughtful with your words.
