Ten Ways to Keep Your Passion Alive

3 Feb

Successful entrepreneurs have passion or a strong desire for success. Success means different things to each of us, yet to be truly happy and fulfilled it is important to nurture the aspirations, drive and desire for change. We live in a society where many feel like one person cannot make a difference. HOPEpreneurs are those who are enthusiastic about their purpose in life and actively take steps to fulfill the purpose.Never lose hope that your dreams will come true

  1. Let go of the need to do things perfectly and allow others to help you move forward.
  2. Always be eager to learn new things so that you embrace the fast-paced changes that surround you.
  3. Stir up the fire in your belly by revisiting your goals, doing what you love best and remembering why you started on this journey.
  4. Get up and go after what you know only you can do.
  5. Take the initiative to make changes as soon as you see a better way so you stay ahead of the curve.
  6. Stop talking to people about what you plan to do; instead, take specific actions to make it happen.
  7. Push through the resistance you encounter when starting out; you will gain traction & momentum soon, if you don’t quit.
  8. Never lose hope that your dreams will come true because you are closer than you think.
  9. Don’t get discouraged when others don’t get your vision & zeal. What do you expect? It’s your vision, so make it a reality.
  10. Take the time to restore your energy by resting, spending time with those you love, and doing something crazy that you are passionate about.

    Wow, I really needed this today. I have a lot of ideas floating around and I have been trying to narrow them down. Since I got laid off over a year and a half, it has been and uphill battle with boulders and landslides. Trying to become gainfully employed has been a task, so I have the thought to venture out and work on one of my dreams. It has been daunting and that paralyzes me to the point where I don’t know what to do. I am afraid of failure, but I also know that if I don’t try, there is 100% chance of failure. Thank you, now to keep this in mind. I may have to copy, paste and print this and keep where I can see it everyday

    I so understand the feeling. I am so proud of you for not giving up. Keep that passion alive for what you love to do and keep taking steps in the right direction. I am here cheering for you every step of the way. Pick one of these and post it on your mirrors as reminder. Let me know if there is any other way I can help.

    Thank you. I am in the process of trying to get office equipment, well, at least a copier/printer/scanner combo. It is a start. I am looking forward even in the midst of unknown.

      That’s really good. You will particularly love the scanner option. I am very proud of you for not letting uncertainly stop you.

I would love to get your insights on this topic.
