Your Noble Passion = Your Mission

Succeeding in life and business requires a strong intention to succeed. "How to" is secondary. Get inspired first. Have a dream. If you really want something you’ll invent amazing ways to achieve it.

"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life," taught Confucius.

Do what you love to do and make a difference,” advised Steve Jobs, founder of Apple.

Successful people win because they love what they do. Actually, your noble passion is your mission. If you find your true passion and devote yourself to it, you’ll find harmony and happiness in your life. You’ll be achieving great results continually and effortlessly.

The Power of Passion

Do What You Love To Do

Identify your passions. What do you love to do? Who are you professionally? Who are you – really? What are your dreams and fears? Create a road map from your dreams to reality. Start the transition to a new you to achieve the results that are beyond your wildest dreams.

Find or create a working environment where you are allowed to be yourself and feel liberated to do your work as the best expression of yourself, your dreams, and your abilities... More

Be Different and Make a Difference!

 Case in Point  Dan Lok

"I get a lot of satisfaction from teaching," says Dan Lok, an Internet marketing guru. "Teaching copywriting, Internet marketing... although I make money doing it, it does take up a lot of my time. To constantly come up with new ideas, is difficult. It isn't the smartest financial investment from a pure money perspective, but it is rewarding emotionally.

"If I did it just for money, I wouldn't do it. All my other businesses, I spend less time on. I don't have to manage them day-to-day and send emails because they are on autopilot.  But with mentoring and teaching, I do it because I enjoy it, it keeps me going and it validates all that I do."

 Case in Point  Bob Griffith

Stressed out and deeply in debt, Griffiths left a six-figure Wall Street position in 1988 to pursue his dream as a playwright, actor, and teacher. He sold his eighteenth-century mansion and downsized his luxury lifestyle, and he found happiness in the process.

In his book "Do What You Love for the Rest of Your Life: A Practical Guide to Career Change and Personal Renewal," Griffiths advises readers to commit to a career change, identifying doubts (often money-related) before undertaking the process of identifying a passion, perhaps by taking tests or seeing a career counselor. The new career, says Griffiths, should integrate the personal and career selves. Emphasizing the need for family discussions about such change, Griffiths suggests that children care less about economic status than reliable parenting. As for money, he suggests getting control of finances and analyzing expectations, recognizing, e.g., that children can get a good education at non-brand name schools. His advice ranges from the psychological ("maintaining a constructive attitude") to the practical (make a chart assessing the skills and abilities applicable to new career possibilities). Avoid burning bridges, he says, as networking works better than responding to job ads. Acknowledging the trade-offs, Griffiths concludes that "self-worth" is more important than "net worth."

This roadmap shows how Griffiths and others walked away from prestigious but unfulfilling careers and successfully reinvented their lives. Theirs is an inward journey of facing their deepest fears, of disempowering money and empowering themselves, and finding out who they really are, beyond material possessions, ego, and status.

Estee Lauder: 15 Rules for Entrepreneurial Success

Inspiring Vision and Stretch Goals

Your vision performs both a directional and a motivational function. The purpose of your vision of a desirable future is to inspire, provide direction, and focus you on those things you could do now to bring that future state about.

Set stretch goals on your journey to your vision and your true self. Stretch goals energize and push you to work harder at meeting more difficult targets and to achieve more than if you had set an easier goal.

Take Action and Don’t Quit

“For true success ask yourself these four questions: Why? Why not? Why not me? Why not now?” advises James Allen, the author of As a Man Thinketh. Success is about persistent, consistent action. Action is the key. If you do not take action you will achieve nothing. So, set stretch goals and take action.

Balance action and reflection – reflection of where you are now and action of pushing toward where you need to go.

Never forget that failure is just a step to your success. As NLP Technology of Achievement teaches us, “There is no such thing as failure, only feedback.”

Feedback

Feedback is the breakfast of champions and the foundation of success. It will help you learn and do better next time. Take notice of feedback in all its forms. Pay attention to detail.

If what you are doing is working, find out the ingredients and sequences, then repeat them to get more of it. If what you are doing isn't working, be inventive – do something different... More

Yin-Yang of Entrepreneurial Creativity

The Tao of Success: The Art of Living and Working

The Tao helps you achieve much more with much less effort. This effortless skill comes from being in accord with reality. You can't tell the singer from the song. You can't tell the dancer from the dance. When you are in harmony the Tao, when you go with its current  of energy, your innate intelligence takes over, and the right action happens by itself.  If you think about it, you lose it. This is the purest and most effective form of action that Tao Te Ching calls "not-doing" or "non-action".

The Tao teaches you the art of living and the art of doing business. It gives you advice that imparts perspective and balance. It applies equally well to the managing a large corporation or the running of a small business, to the governing of a nation or the leading a small team, to your personal development or to the coaching of others.
