Each of us has passions. Most have an expertise (anything you do or know better than most). Creating a life that is Worth the work is found where those paths meet.
How do you know what is worth pursuing?
- Can You (do you have the expertise)?
- Will it work (do others want/need your area of expertise)?
- Could you see yourself becoming emotionally overwhelmed upon achievement? (Is it a Passion for you? That is the fuel you will need to succeed.)
Answer YES to all three and it’s Go Time!
In order to endure the sacrifices, fears, distractions, and detractors, the outcome must be Worth it. If not you will struggle to stay on course.
Hard Work and Will Power are what most were taught to believe are the keys to creating remarkable results. Of course, 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 paramount to creating Fulfillment. This act of surrounding yourself with those that “listen and consider” versus “judge and compare” will prove invaluable when the to-be-expected hurdles, set-backs, 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.
