Follow Your Path To Success

 

"You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do." - Steve Jobs

 

If you really want to reach your full potential for SUCCESS, you must find your PASSION. It is one of the biggest and most important decisions of our lives.

When I was younger and attempting to find my own road to success, I read all of the books and listened to all of the tapes on finding your passion and success. They all had some measure of influence on me, but it wasn't until I listened to an audio cassette by Reverend Michael Canion (my uncle) that my eyes were really opened to why finding and following my passion was important. He stated over and over, "Your passion will lead to prosperity". He didn't just mean financial prosperity. He meant prosperity in every area of your life - your health, relationships, emotions, etc. He knew that if passion were present, the other areas of your life would be affected positively.

How can I find my passion?

Many people ask me that question. They seem to think they don't have a clue, however, I say to them that the answer is closer than they think. Some feel that people who are passionate and enthusiastic have a pre-condition (to have this passion). While I appreciate this viewpoint, I don't agree.

When people suggest it is a pre-condition - as though a person were born with the passion to succeed - I laugh and say, "But what about those people who went through tough struggles and huge obstacles in their youth, but are extremely successful now?" Or how about people who once lacked ambition in one job, but were rejuvenated when they changed their work environment?

Here are a few questions that might lead you to your passion and prosperity :

  1. What do I really enjoy doing?
  2. What have others said you are good at doing?
  3. Where do I want to be in 5 years? 10 years?
  4. What do I do that doesn't seem like work?
  5. What would I do for free that people are willing to pay me for?
  6. What do I think about when I am alone?
  7. What have I have wanted to do for a long time but have made excuses to keep from doing it?

Expanding Your Comfort Zone to Find Your True Passion

You have to believe in yourself and in what you're doing. Ask yourself, am I doing what I'm "meant" to be doing? Sometimes you have to think outside of your comfort zone to find your true passion.

For example, let's say you love music. You play a few instruments and you sing, but you don't feel that you'd enjoy being a full-time musician. That doesn't mean you can't learn some of the music technology and become an audio engineer, or a music producer. Or what about working for a music recording company, a music store, an instrument manufacturer, teaching music, or starting your own music business (for example, a music software company, a specialty CD store, or a company that finds unique talent and markets their music). This is just one way of using your hobby to expand your comfort zone to create an opportunity for yourself.

Surround Yourself with Positive People

If you surround yourself with negative people, you're more likely to become negative yourself. These types of people prefer to focus on the mistakes and problems of the world instead of making good use of their skills and ideas. They often lack enthusiasm and are skeptical about anything positive.

One way that I found that I could develop my passion and work ethic was to surround myself with people who were like-minded and are often better than me at various tasks. The enthusiasm that others have will rub off on you and, before you know it, you'll be more motivated too!

I am known across the United States as America's Most Passionate Speaker because I use passion to empower and change people's lives. Now, go and find your passion to change your life!
