To be successful in life, you have to be passionate about what you do.
Wealth is never an overnight phenomenon. Whatever you see as wealth must have been years of efforts, of failures and restarts, of hurdles cleared and problems avoided. One of the factors that can fuel your journey to success in wealth creation is your passion and your enthusiasm. That is the love of whatever it is you are doing at the moment.
The rich love what they do to create wealth. It is absolutely impossible to achieve long term affluence without loving what you do to make money. Observe the life of any rich person and you will see a person who absolutely loves what he does to create his wealth.
Passion is the energy and drive you bring into whatever it is you do to create wealth. In your business, it is not everyday that will be fun. You are bound to experience problems and crises at one time or the other. If you are not inspired to make a difference, or not enthusiastic or passionate about what you do to make a living, you are bound to fail. In point of fact you can, you can never create wealth or be rich if you are not passionately in love with what you are doing to create wealth.
Very memorable act in history of the world is a triumph of enthusiasm and passion. Likewise, every memorable act of wealth creation in life had been a triumph of passion and enthusiasm. The successes of Bill Gates, Donald Trump, Jerry Yang, Michael Dell, Paul Getty and the like attest to this. They were all passionate about what they did to make a living and to make money. Passion is a great asset in the quest to accumulate wealth.
The passionate person can convince and dominate where the wealth accumulated by a small army of workers could hardly raise a tremor of interest. Passion could trample over prejudice and opposition, spurn inaction and like an avalanche overwhelm and engulf all obstacles. With passion and enthusiasm, you can have your power of perception heightened and your vision magnified until you see the beauty and charm others could not see and the ways of wealth creation others could not discern. This will then compensate for the large dose of drudgery, deprivation, hardship and even persecution you might have encountered in your efforts to accumulate wealth.
With passion you will see no darkness ahead, no trap that has no escape and forget that there is such a thing like failure in the world in your effort to create wealth. In point of fact, the passionate believes that that all these centuries mankind has been waiting for him or her to be the liberator of truth, energy and beauty.
