Winning Attitude 4: Be passion driven

“When you start doing what you really love to do, you’ll never work another day in your life.”

I know the hustle is real and you must make ends meet but there is more to life than just waking up each day to go through a lifeless hassle. It is no wonder that many people celebrate the end of the week than they do the start of the week. We have millions of people going through the lifeless motions of work each day only to realize they never actually lived their passions at the end of their lives.

Doing what you love to do is one of the great secrets of financial success. One of your primary responsibilities in life is to find out what you really enjoy doing, what you have a natural talent for, and then to throw your whole heart into doing that particular work very, very well. You will need to understand that there is a huge difference between simply enjoying a hobby and turning your passion into a profession. Until your passion begins to earn you enough money to sustain you, it is only a hobby.

Successful people are those who have found a field where their natural strengths and abilities are exactly what is required to do the job and achieve the results desired. You must find a field in which you can be totally absorbed—a job or area of endeavor that completely fascinates you, that holds your attention, that is a natural expression of your special talents and abilities.

When you are doing what you love to do, you seem to have a continuous flow of excitement, energy, and ideas to do what you do even better. I love writing and when I start writing I don’t want to stop. I could go for hours without stopping because I am in my zone however I must turn my passion for writing into a profession where I get paid for writing then I can spend the rest of my life doing what I am passionate about while actualizing my financial goals as well.
Perhaps the greatest responsibility of adult life, when you are surrounded by so many different choices of occupation and career, is for you to find out what you really love doing and then dedicate yourself o that field. And no one else can do this for you. Don’t wait until you retire to discover your passion and then start living. That will be too late, start living today. Be passion driven but more importantly choose to turn your passion into a profession.
