Each of us has passions and interests and most have an expertise (if you think about, you do).
Creating a life that is Worth the Work is easily found at the intersection where those three meet.
How do you know what is worth pursuing?
- Can You? (do you have the expertise)
- Will it work? (others must want/need your area of expertise)
- Could you see yourself becoming emotionally overwhelmed upon achievement? (literally)
- Is it a Passion? (the limitless fuel source that drives remarkable achievements)
When you can answer YES to these questions, it’s Go Time!
In order to endure the sacrifices, fears, distractions, and detractors, the outcome must be worth it TO YOU. If not, you will struggle to stay on course.
“Hard Work” and “Will Power” are often considered the paramount ingredients for creating remarkable results. Yes, hard work is required for anything worth doing, but if it is not fueled by a passion, the likelihood for sustainable success is low.
Having the right people around you is critical to creating Fulfillment. The act of surrounding yourself with those that “listen and consider” versus “judge and compare” will prove invaluable when the to-be-expected hurdles, setbacks, and easy-outs appear.
Time spent pursuing passions you care about, know something about, and like to talk to others about is the American Dream.
