Passion can be heard

Wealth creation seminars have been around now for a little while. Maybe after attending 10 of them, you might have discovered a common pattern. There are good and bad ones. You might have even found the solution to your problems and you did the necessary steps to grow your business or yourself.

One word that always comes up and is highly related with becoming wealthy is Passion. If you follow your passion, the money will come. Sure, there are still some missing parts, but over all that is a fair statement. I would put it this way: If  what you do is your passion, things seems to be a bit easier.

In the last couple of years, I was looking for my passion. The question is how do you do that? How can you find your passion? There is no clear answer to it, because it will be different for everyone.

I wished sometimes I could see and hear myself. That I could step out of myself, so I can find out how I look like and how I act like when I am doing something I love to do. I have learnt a lot about myself and what I love to do in the last couple of months. It surprises me that things we got told when we were a child, still affect us 20 or 30 years later.

I slowly start to realize and accept a part in me, that has been suppressed all my life. On several occasions I discovered myself in enjoying a process. I loved sharing my knowledge. I could feel it, because I felt comfortable doing it. Sure I am still stumbling, but because I know the subject and I feel it is important to be shared, I don’t care that my English is not perfect. I might be actually passionate about it.

You also will notice the feedback you get from other people. Because passion can be heard. When something is done with heart, people will receive it there. People will listen and want more. Observe yourself and others. How comfortable do you feel when sharing your story or business? Is it your talking or someone else?

Now, when I am scheduled to talk, I am more than happy to do so. I am proud that I reached this state in my business. I expanded my comfort zone. Time now to crack the next challenge.

How did you find your passion or are you still looking?

When People see a Leader in You

leadership skills
Just follow me!

That is the moment you are working for and at the same time it represents a new challenge for you.

A leader is someone people look up to and listen to. A leader also manages a team of people with a common goal. A leader keeps learning and knows how to delegate tasks to the team. A leader is able to talk to team members truthfully and with faith. A leader finds solutions to problems and trains team members to become a leader of leaders.

The challenging parts can be:

  • more responsibility
  • public speaking
  • advanced people skills
  • staying true to yourself
  • having a bigger vision than the team
  • keep learning
  • time management
  • others ….

Being a leader comes with rewards but also with more responsibility. Are you willing to reach the next level? Are you willing to sacrifice something in your life temporarily to improve your leadership skills? Are you desperate enough to go for the bigger goal? Will you be able to handle a team of like-minded people joining your journey, desperate to learn from you? Are you still open-minded enough to keep up with technology and improve and speed up processes your team are working on?

Feeling like a leader is something different to being seen as a leader. Work closely with your team but also with your mentor. Stepping up and doing something outside of your comfort zone is something that won’t be unnoticed. Your team will give your feedback immediately.

Are you a leader already? What are your experiences on your enjoy to become a leader?
