We always hear this saying; “Follow your passion”.
Following your passion is huge. Passion is that thing that really gets you going. Passion is what fuels you. It is the driving force behind what you do or decide to do. 👌👌👌
Purpose is what starts the engine and passion is what keeps it working.🔥🔥🔥
However, passion isn’t everything.
If you are looking to achieve remarkable, fulfilling, huge and phenomenal success, you must have two components: passion and purpose.
What’s the difference?
Passion is your compelling emotions behind your dreams. Your feelings drive your passion.❤️❤️❤️❤️
Purpose is the why behind it all. Purpose is the deep reason for your existence. It is the reason for the emotion and feeling. Purpose is the reason you started that company and the reason you want to start the business. Hmmm, it is the reason behind your existence.🌹🌹🌹
Let’s think of it this way: if you wanted to start a fire(business) with passion and purpose, you’d start with a foundation of wood (plan your goal)(your purpose), and start the flame with a match(do your plan)(your passion). You needed both for that fire(business)to start. If the flame went out(plan didn’t work out), you would just re-ignite it with another match(replan/put more efforts)(more passion), but if you didn’t build up a good foundation of wood(poor planning or unrealistic goals)(purpose), your passion would quickly burn itself out on it’s own. The two go hand-in-hand.
Following your passion while living out your purpose is the ultimate life goal. 💪💪💪
In a work setting, if you are a career person working for a company. The goal of the company becomes your primary purpose while your own goal becomes secondary. For instance; if the company’s goal is to improve on a product in order to satisfy their customers, and your own goal is to make money. Your goal is heavily dependent on the company’s goal because if the company goes bankrupt, your goal is automatically cut off. But if you are a company or business owner, your purpose becomes primary.
Now this is what I tell my protégés; “Make sure your purpose is majorly intrinsic” ie from within. So that when the physical rewards are not coming as expected, you would still have the passion to carry on. Example I love to practice medicine even when I find myself in rural places with little or no amenities and salary, my purpose is to save lives and am passionate about it.(put in your own lines here)
Your purpose and the passion with which you follow it brings you huge, fulfilling and phenomenal success.
