Millionaire Mindset Series 26: Follow Your Passion

That may mean starting a business and letting your entrepreneurial spirit free!

It takes no great insight to see that we are living in a time of rapid change. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the world of work. Statistics show that the average worker now holds a job an average of only 1 1/2 years. Our notions about livelihood are shifting too as are its patterns. Roughly 85% of people who work for money work for someone else; they are employees.

However, psychologists estimate that perhaps as many as four out of five (80%) employees are actively dissatisfied with their jobs. Because of this statistic, many people look to starting a business of their own as a way to achieve happiness in the world, to take charge of their lives, to demonstrate their effectiveness in the world, and to find fulfillment.

Are you showing up, living every moment, enjoying the work and the day? What can you do to ensure you are where the party is at? If you are already an entrepreneur or contemplating to become one, the first thing you need to do is ask yourself…Are you in the right business? Have you uncovered your passion? It’s your love for what you do that will give you drive, commitment and energy necessary to stay in the game, reap the rewards and have an extraordinary time while you do it.

Find something that will get you up early and keep you up late. If you are going to invest extra hours developing a business, invest them in something you really enjoy. Ensure that the selection and development of the business is compatible with personal, family, and financial goals. Doing a self-assessment like this is one of the most important steps to developing a business and a lifestyle you don’t need a vacation from.

You will know you have found your passion when: you are doing things that you choose to and not have to do, when you are doing things and you don’t notice time passing by, when you are doing things that keep you up late and wake up early with enthusiasm, and when each day emotionally feels like a holiday. That’s how know!
