Think that marketing, sales or even community drives your business success? Well you aren't wrong...
But what drives the person behind the business's success.. that is where passion comes into play.
Without the passion you experience serious burnout and we have been there. It is not fun, so why not just start a business you enjoy running and have a passion for in the first place!
Don't risk putting in all of that work, ears of your life to end up quitting because you lack passion, not even because of a lack of results... you can just burn out and get sick of running the business.
This can set you back a ton on your journey to success and that is not something we want to have happen.
Don't get burnouts confused with setbacks though. Everyone is going to have setbacks and a lot of people might have burnout but pushing through is when you create the person you need to be in order to find success!
Burnout due to passion is different though because you don't usually get back up from it. When you aren't passionate about something you don't push through the hard times, you just stop because you feel like it just isn't worth your time.. even after you dedicated so much time to it.
Why You Should Find A Purpose Behind Your Business
So what constitutes a purpose behind your business? Can it just be to make money or get that lambo?
Well your passion could be that but eventually you are going to not care about the money anymore, way down the road and start caring about what impact you are having on the lives of others.
When you really find your "why" behind your business that's what gets you outta bed in the morning and helps you find fulfillment in your life!
While we have been in the position where all we wanted was money, who doesn't love money right? We found that having money or material things as a goal was good but a passion behind what you do such as a passion for helping others grow businesses or finding a way to change people's lives was even more of a driving force.
Have you ever heard of the books Start With Why? Well it is a whole book on the reason behind finding a passion or "why" in everything that you do.
When you find this "why" it helps you push through the tough times as you are able to see the long term play and not just what is holding you back at the moment!
Highly recommend this book if you haven't read it yet.. some great life as well as business strategies. It is just as important to create the life skills you need as it is to create business or professional skills!
When you start building a business around your passions you are able to get better results, increase customers and grow your business faster!
This is becasue you won't just half ass everything and look for the easy way out as you will if you are only in it for the money.
You know when you half ass something too as you are not getting the results you need or thought you would!
You need to have passion behind what you are doing if you want to be able to give it your all day in and day out for years... because that is what it takes if you want to find success in your life.
Hope you all are having a productive week!
