The Power of Passion

Successful people win because they love what they do. All of them have a very strong desire to succeed. They have passion for their field, their business.

Passion is the single fastest way to spur yourself to massive success. It is something you love. Something you're excited about. Something you get up early to work on or to stay up late.

Love What You Are Doing

We were born to do not what we are forced to do, but what we love to do. If you love what you do, you  release your diving creativity. Continuous creative activity and the joy of achievement is a great source of happiness... More

Turning Your Passion Into a Great Business

If you live your passion and create great value for others, then the profits will follow.

Happiness is not about life-business balance, it's about life-business synergy.

Great business requires heart and dedication. If you think your passion or hobby has potential as a business, ask yourself, "Is this something I really enjoy doing and can sustain? What is it about my offerings that are unique or hard to find? Is this something people really want?  How could I find it out?"... More

 Case in Point  Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs was one of the most successful entrepreneurs. His success story is legendary.

"Find your true passion and do what you love to do," says Steve Jobs. "Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do... More
