Passion leads to Success
If you want to be successful at your job and move up the company ladder you need to be passionate about your work. You need to be motivated and driven to be the best you can be regardless of your job or your work.
Passion, drive, motivation, zeal, call it what you want it is the self-driven attitude about your job and your work that can help lead you down the path to success.
Over the weekend while I had nothing to do, so I thought of reading few blogs where I ran across a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
For me this was a trigger to realize that our success comes not so much from what we do (our job), but how well we do it (our passion for our job). It also illustrates that regardless of your job or your position on the company ladder, you can be successful if you have passion for your work.
It made me think how one can consider a street sweeper as being successful. He is a street sweeper, but each day he goes to work giving it his best with passion. To me this makes him successful at his job.
Passion is a powerful feeling of enthusiasm. It is that emotion or zeal that drives your motivation.
Why is passion so important if you are delighted about what you do , you will find ways to overcome obstacles ( If any ) that rise out of it. This approach helps you to uprise and get the work in hand done better.
Have you lost your passion towards work?
How do you get your passion back? Remember passion is an emotion a state of mind so the first thing you have to do is motivate yourself. Turn to another emotion to find the motivation that you need. Anger .Whether you are furious with something or at someone. Meditate , run , read , do whatever work at the big picture in life. Motivation will drive passion extremely to learn new skill, spend time with people who come & make you laugh.
This will help you align your thoughts & find that purpose & keep you closer to goals in life.
