Why not just chase the money, that's how you get rich right? If you focus on making money then you will make more money and you will be happy, or that's at least what you might have heard...
Actually, fining the thing you passionate about is the essential step in your success... and yes you can be passionate about making money but that is temporary a majority of the time and doesn't ed well for most people.
Since we have already talked about how to find your passion we thought we could touch on why this is important, because why do something is it is not going to improve your quality of life, happiness, etc..
So let's just jump right in...
Money can be a major motivator towards ones success-- houses, cars, clothes, etc can also do the same thing. But are these things really what drives people to the high levels of success they achieve?
The answer is almost always no... sure they may like all those things but if you really dig deep down there is more there than just wanting a Lamborghini or a big house.
This desire that many have to get those material possessions usually come from something they see on social media or a life they envision for themselves but is that the real motivation we seek? From an outside source?
Not usually, yes it helps to get that little motivation boost every once in a while but this is not where love term motivation comes from. This is where passions come in, they are with you for the long haul which is the journey to YOUR SUCCESS!
Passions help us to be enjoying what we are doing even though we might not be making as much money yet as we would like to be or we are spending more time than others working but it doesn't even seem like work because its what we enjoy doing!
When we live through our passions it narrows our focus to what makes us happy and what we want to do rather than what we have to be doing right now.. it also helps us get a more positive outlook on life and the future as you see the plan for the future with your passions in it.
The most important part of living through your passions is that it can get you past the burnout stage that many people just chasing money get trapped in.. where everyday feels like a grind and even though you are making money it just isn't fun and you aren't happy.
Your passions allow you to play the long term game and coincidentally the long term game is where you make the most money.. weird right:)
Gonna finish off this post with some links to great resources such as Elite Daily that also talk about the importance of living through your passions.. yes its not just us that think this:)
