If not passion for a cause, then I would think a "drive" is necessary. As individuals, we all have different things that drive us... in life, in business, love and relationships, etc. Drive does somehow turn into motivation. We all have different reasons for why we have our goals, why we want to do what we want to do. If speaking of a product, then sales have to go with the flow and the times. Times change, people change and products (even markets) will change. I do believe that a person should believe in what they are selling. Would think a seller would know more about the product and be more believable to buyers if they used the product themselves. It is a key item to figure out (on an individual basis) what drives "you". Passion means you really care, but hopefully not with your head in the clouds. And, flexibility is important in life all the way around! In your own business, so much of YOU is in the project that a person is driven with so much of their being. Maybe it isn`t just about making money, or big money. Maybe it is about caring and doing.
All of these words - passion, drive, will, etc etc have different meanings to everyone so it`s really in your personal interpretation of what these words mean. We are all born with distinct personalities. I see children at 2 years old that have a stronger constitution than any adult I know....now it`s what happens between 2 and 20 that can either encourage that strength and determination or knock it down. The environment we are brought up in has a lot to do with the direction we take as an adult but there`s always the child who was brought up against all odds and was still able to follow the dream....So whether it`s fear, terror, personality, drive, will or passion...it needs to be something that gets the adrenalin pumping! The journey isn`t easy but it is fun if you are doing the right thing.
It is really important to have a believe system....believe in yourself!! Raising the belief in you and all areas on life are highly important! If we continue to learn and don`t let fear stop us, we become unstopable! It must exist in every opportunity!
Relearning how to dream.....we drept big dreams in the begining and now as we get older we just say "some day", we then forget about the dreams that we had as a child.....pushed to the side....J.O.B.S happen and consume us.....
Our self image becomes a condition within our personalities....to change we have to develop that mental picture of who and what you want! Make a dream board! Develop who you really are! Develop your "WHY"...Believe in yourself having it and don`t doubt it.....visualize it and it will happen!!
Learning how to dream BIG again!! But believe in yourself, make them happen!
Passion IS important to have but if you don`t have it in your mind, then how does the passion help?
Decide what you want! Learn what you need to learn! Get the training to help develop the skills!
KNOW WHAT YOU DON`T want!! Try not to focus on these things! Listen to your negative emotions and pay close attention to where they bring you....
This is a small amount of what I listen to with my candle conferences by phone! I would love to share this with you! Please go to my website and lets talk!
THE GREATEST FEAR IS FEAR IT`S SELF!!
