  32. 32. Bill Strickland, author of Make the Impossible Possible<br />believes that only by following your passion will you unlock your deepest potential.<br />
  33. 33. Bill Strickland, author of Make the Impossible Possible<br />"I never saw a meaningful life that wasn't based on passion. And I never saw a life full of passion that wasn't, in some important way, extraordinary."<br />
  34. 34. WHY PASSION MATTERS ?<br />
  35. 35. When passion lets loose, you drive focus, cultivate mastery, leverage spontaneity, foster creativity, build intuition and live toward mission. <br />
  36. 36. The dots connect. Clarity emerges. Your own bar of excellencesets higher, and you become infatuated with exceeding it.<br />
  37. 37. The result is accelerated and extended value creation that otherwise would never have been possible.<br />
  38. 38. Richard Nelson, author of What Color is Your Parachute?<br />"When you're passionate about what you do, [prospective clients] would rather give their business to you than to your competitor,"<br />
  39. 39. even if your business will face hard times, you are passionate enough to work it out and find solutions to these problems.<br />

  41. 41.
  42. 42. FEAR<br />
  43. 43. GREED<br />
  44. 44. When you choose to open a business simply because your neighbor is doing well at it, you increase the likelihood of failure. When you enter a career because your brother-in-law made a lot of money in it last year, you increase the odds of living an unsatisfied life. And when you choose a college major solely to satisfy your parents, you raise the risk of becoming bored instead of energized by your classes.<br />
  45. 45. Business that lights your FIRE<br />
  46. 46. 5 STEPS<br />
  47. 47. 1. Identify what gets you excited.<br />
  48. 48. allow yourself to dream. "Ask yourself: 'What's fun? What do I like to do? What would I get a kick out of doing?' "Most people think they don't know what they want to do, but that's because they move too fast. They say, 'Well, I like such-and-such, but it doesn't make any money.' But you don't know that! You've got to wake up to what it is you like before you slam down the criticisms.”<br />
  49. 49. 2. Go back to your childhood.<br />
  50. 50. "One way to tell if something is your passion is if you had an affinity for it during childhood,”."<br />
  51. 51. 3. Take stock of your talents<br />
  52. 52. "What you love is what you're giftedat”<br />
  53. 53.
  54. 54. How do you determine what your talents are? On a sheet of paper, brainstorm the things you do well, the things that come naturally to you. If you're having trouble listing your gifts on your own, consult people you trust and ask what they think your best skills are.<br />
  55. 55. 4. "Shop" on the job<br />
  56. 56. look at your job as an opportunity to test out different skills to discover what you might like to do on your own. <br />"A corporation is a great place to discover activities you enjoy,“ <br />"Wherever you work, take as much time as you can to 'shop' around the various departments. Learn the ropes, and find out what you get a kick out of."<br />
  57. 57. 5. Look at the big picture.<br />
  58. 58. Steven Covey, author of the bestseller The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Restoring the Character Ethic, suggests asking yourself three questions: Do I like doing it? Am I good at it? Does the world need it?<br />
  59. 59. What is it you just have to do? What's holding you back? <br />
  60. 60. "If you believe in yourself and know your passion, then do it!" says Szymanski – a successful business-. "Don't look for excuses not to. If you're offering society the best person you can be, you'll be rewarded with success-and the money will come. There will be ups and downs, but it will happen."<br />
