When someone asks you what you’re passionate about, you think to yourself and a couple things may come to mind; your family, a hobby, your career, a cause, etc. When you think about it, what exactly is passion? There are two different meanings, although they are often interchanged. If you’re looking to have a successful small business full of passion and provision this is crucial to know so keep on reading!
Two types of passion
- This is the act of showing passion towards people
- Non-romantic relationships towards people
- Passionate about non-human things
In the end, all passion really means is that we like “it” a lot. It draws our focus, it consumes our interest, and it provides some sort of pleasure or enjoyment. We can expend tons and tons of energy on it, become exhausted and never be worn out in an emotional sense. Yes, so exhausted and tired you can’t think anymore but it’s the type of thing where you still want more despite those physical feelings. You take yourself past exhaustion because it was worth going beyond being tired. It’s a good kind of tired. Does this sound familiar?
When you have people in the company, including YOU, the entrepreneur, that are passionate, your business is more likely to make it through the hard times and be successful. You want this! The passion is what takes you through, it's what keeps you engaged, and it’s what makes you get up in the morning and do it all over again.
Pursuing passion is like trying to catch the wind. The wind comes, the wind goes and you can never really see it, you can only see the effects of it. However, if you plant the seeds of passion you will begin to see the effects. To have a successful business you need to have the passion that drives you, the entire business and your employees to reach that kind of success that we are talking about—that you dream about.
