“You have to love what you do or you are never going to be successful no matter what you do in life” -Donald Trump
Passion and other things
If you have read many self-help books they all boil down to this point: Do what you love and Love what you do
There are thousands and thousands of careers or businesses you can try but if you don’t put love in it, you’ll find yourself stressed out.
Passion as defined by Robert Kiyosaki as the combination of hate and love.
Doing what you love and hating the result if you don’t do it.
For example, If you love building beautiful structures like Donald Trump, you’re going to build it with all you’ve got ‘coz if you don’t you won’t be satisfied,
Another is, You love your family so much that you’ll do what you are doing with all your heart ‘coz if you don’t its your family that will take the consequence of it.
The important thing is you have to find your reason of doing things. Find your why and the rest follows. Find your urge to make your dream, start moving and persist when things get worst. Money is not a good foundation where you’ll base your reason to move. Every successful people would tell you that. Even Mr. Colayco said in a recent interview that you have to find something that you hate and make the solution. Money does not fit in the equation. Move beyond the concept of money and into a divine purpose.
“With everything you do, find a mission or grand purpose beyond money…” -Donald Trump
Here are some signs if you’re pouring passion in what you do:
-You’ll work harder and not get stressed out. How could you get stressed if your doing what you love?
-Try harder when things don’t play as you want them to be. Why would you quit doing something you really love?
-Get better at it. Your mind is so into it that every neurons works in harmony giving you all you need to improve yourself.
-Do a hard work and still enjoy life. Work becomes play to you, a source of energy.
More than Passion, you must be a Doer not just a Dreamer.
You’ve probably have a dream of becoming rich, financially free. And you may also have thought of many ideas, researched many financial vehicles and read many books on how to reach it. Don’t let these ideas stay in your head. Apply passion and put them to action before they disappear in thin air.
Grace under Pressure.
High ranking officials in your company are getting higher paychecks not because of longer service but probably because they’ve learned how to handle more pressures than most of anybody else under them. A lot of people are stressed out when thing gets tough. They fold and break even though they are smart people. In order to handle pressure well, focus on the solution not on the problem. This is where most people fail. They got caught up in thinking about the problem and waste time on who to blame then they start imagining the worst.
Follow Trump’s advice:
Acknowledge the problem and then move on to a more positive level
Focus on the solution after realizing what the problem was. A lot of times, stress has more to do with focusing.
If you’ve read my previous letters, you’ll already know the importance of WORDS. Try changing your words from ” I’m stressed out” to a positive level like ” I’m so unfocused”
Makes you think better on how to solve problems and focus your energy.
Good luck and may you have Passion in everything you do.
