Creating Passion – How To LOVE What You Do
Creating passion is a challenge isn’t it - trying to love what you dread. Be it a client or an account or even a certain process in the work you do.
Sometimes just that one thing alone makes it difficult for you to even climb out of bed. Passion for your work is such a romantic term. Can passion be truly created? I believe it can. How do you create passion for your work?
Here are some simple steps I have used in creating passion for what I do. Get excited over them and perform well at work.
1. Ignore The Inner Chatter. Do It Anyway.
Before you even start, it will tell you, it sucks, it cannot work and it this will destroy your life. Ask yourself, does whatever you need to do help you in whatever way in your life later? If it is a yes, do it well. If it is a no, ask yourself can it possibly help you later? Chances are it will. So, look at this as a way of paying your future dues. This is one way of creating passion.
Learn to change your perception. When you change your perception, you change your reality. Because your perception is your reality.
2. The Why of You?
And how do you discover yourself? By doing. By experimenting. If you continue to say, I do not like this and never try, your life will be miserable. This world isn’t about you, you, you. It’s about how you add to the world. When you can connect what you like to how you do what you do not like, you light the path to the why of you. You can be creating passion just by learning to discover you.
3. What Is It You Do Not Know?
The more we are curious about things, the more we find out why. The more why we know, the more meaningful things are to us.
4. Make It Meaningful
How can you use this to contribute to your life? How can you use this to contribute to your world? Your family? How will someone you love benefit from this?
5. Cut The Ropes
One trick to creating passion is not to worry about the results. Focus on the process. What you will learn and how it will contribute to your future. At the very least, it teaches you patience and it challenges your limits.
6. Set A Goal
Same goes with work. Be clear with your goals. Once you have the goal, your next task is to focus on getting the fuel. The frustration of standing still will force you to get moving. Having goals can help you in creating passion.
7. Surround Yourself With Energy
Passion is not innate. We can learn to be passionate about our work. No one job has all the nice things. Each have it’s nice and ugly side. The trick is to make sure we accept the good and the bad. As we alter our own perception and ACT upon our work, naturally the passion will well up inside us.
