The 4 P's: Passion, Planning, Positioning, and Persistence. All four carry a tremendous amount of weight on your path to success, and not one of them can function on its own. You must have all four playing, integrating and operation in harmony.
This week we'll start with, Passion, and its effect on your definition of success.
Quite simply passion is the first critical key to your success. Passion is the fire in your belly. When your knocked down or feeling out of sorts, Passion is exactly the ingredient that will fuel your fire to get back in the game and keep persisting.
Passion is a deep-seated love that's so strong you simply want to do more and more. The challenge is most people don't work their passion. They've settled for a life less than what they are destined for. The status quo has taken over, and they basically are going through the motions day-after-day.
If you really want to be successful in life, on your terms, then you must find and work your passion. What you'll discover is that your job is no longer a job. It now is like playing everyday. What would you rather do; work at a job or play everyday?
The answer is obvious, and by the way, you'll find the most successful people work and play within their passion. Success isn't all about money, but when you play everyday and are paid to do so, isn't that a huge part of success?
Passion is the first critical element of the 4 P's to your success. Find it, discover it and nurture it. Life will reward you accordingly. This leads too Planning, which I'll cover in detail next week.
