One thing the most successful people have in common is that they are deeply connected to what they are passionate about. Let’s use Martin Luther King or Steve Jobs as an example. They could not have succeeded in what they did, without being totally connected to what they tried to accomplish. Successful people know what they want, they are clear about their goals and are committed to take actions that move them towards their goals.

Let’s get clear on what I mean when I talk about passion. When you are living from a passionate place, you are doing things that matter most to you that are in alignment with your deepest values and authentic desires. You are connected to yourself and clear on what it is that you want to create.

That it is a powerful place to come from. Living from your truth fills you with a confidence and excitement. It feels “right”.

It also leads to success in your life and business. And here are some reasons why…

Your goals become exciting

If you live from a place of passion, your goals become bigger then your day-to-day to do list. You persevere even when things get tough – which they regularly will.

You know what to prioritize:

Being clear on what is important to you helps you to say no to things that are not. In a world full of choices and distractions it is a paramount skill on the road to success and fulfillment to be able to prioritize actions in alignment with your passion.

You attract new opportunities

When you come from a place of clarity and truth, your confidence and trust in yourself growth. This does not only feel good, it also has an immediate effect on your environment. People around you will sense your enthusiasm and conviction and are attracted to it. Doors will open that previously weren’t there before.

So what is it that really matters most to you in your business and in your life? Are you prioritizing what you do in accordance with your passion? Who do you need to be in order to live from your authentic desires?
