When it comes to having passion you will do things that go beyond what the average person does. So what are you willing to do to accomplish your goals? Let’s see the importance of taking action verses waiting for something to happen….
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” ~
Focusing on failure and not taking action because of that focus can definitely stunt our growth and hinder the path we make to accomplish our goals. How many of times have you gotten your interests piqued but yet you were afraid to go out and take action?
I start out with focusing on failure because a lot of us either don’t take action or like to just “try” something out and don’t put our all into it.
When I first started my home business I just wanted to try it out even though I wanted to do something like this. So you know what I did?
I didn’t do anything worthwhile for 3 months. I talked to a couple of people, got a couple of “No’s” and just left it like this. Now does this sound like someone that’s going to be successful?
But what clicked? For me I became more and more interested in marketing. There was more to marketing than what I thought it was. I guess that explains why it’s a Major in Universities around the globe.
What Did I Start Doing From That Point On?
I literally became and student, and I’m still a student to this day. In 2012, everything came together and it all meshed quite well.
I became more and more passionate about this industry, especially Online Marketing and how it works. It’s gotten to the point where I can talk about it for hours galore.
I’ve met many many people from facebook alone offline and we get together and talk about personal development, online and offline marketing as though we went to school and got a PHD in it.
But how many people can say this? Above all, can you say this or is your fear blocking your undeveloped passion?
The average Joe will not go beyond their predefined daily life routine. When I say predefined, I mean go the school, graduate, get married, raise kids, work for 40 years, retire and wait to die. Sorry for being negative, but the mentality of a lot of people are like this.
If you don’t want a monotonous life, you have to go take action. Do something different and go beyond your predefined daily routine.
Have you heard of the saying “If you follow the crowd you won’t go any further than the crowd”? This is absolutely true.
For a majority of us, we’ve gotten to the point to where we don’t think. When I say think, I mean think for ourselves. We tend to follow what the crowd does and says from our peers to the news media.
A lot of times those things don’t resonate with us, even though we’ve been conditioned to believe that they should. This blocks our passion and we go into this belief that we need to “Find Ourselves”.
Well we never been lost. What we really want is to do what we want, and to do those thats that resonate with us. When we do those things, we become passionate about them. When we become passionate, We don’t do it half-assed.
And of course those average Joe’s are going to ask why are you taken action off of something they believe won’t work. But if you’re passionate about something, it doesn’t matter what they say. Why? Because now your focused on your passion and not your fear of failure.
So if whatever avenue you want to take seems overbearing at first, then take action to find your passion first within that avenue. Once you get connected, build from there. Once you start getting more critics, then you know you’re doing the right thing for yourself.
Now It’s Your Turn!
