Do you still love what you are professionally doing?
Are you close, but not quite right with what you’re doing?
Is your “passion” for your work still hot, hot, hot?
Presents aren’t the only thing being wrapped up this week. Good or bad, many of us are starting to wrap-up our business activities of the year. Hopefully, you aren’t wrapping it up just yet! But even if you aren’t serving others right now I hope you’re at least creating your blueprint for next year’s success. Imagining and envisioning is a very important part of the process, which usually begins with a review of this year’s performance.
As you begin to review this year’s performance, please remember to include yourself in your review. Too often people don’t and you (and what you do and don’t enjoy doing) is a key to business performance success!
Is YOUR Passion for what you do still running high?
Do you love what you are doing? To what extent? Is your passion, for what you do, simply over the top? Is it contagious? Do you enthuse others?
Or… do you feel like you aren’t 100% in the game? Are you showing up for work 100% turned on for success or under 100%? It’s rather obvious when others experience you, your place of business, or even your website and blog!
People are perceptive and can tell if you are all in and passionate about how you serve your marketplace or if you are just in it for the money. Think about it, when was the last time you ran into someone whose passion for their offering was running high, even overflowing? Did you want to work with them? Did you want to become their friend? Did you ask yourself, “What kind of kool-aid were they drinking?” 🙂
What is your passion, or lack of, revealing to you?
Think of your business/career as a partner to romance and be romanced from throughout the month. Do you listen to what your partner is telling you its needs are? Do you support your partner with enough time to help it make things happen? What about resources, does it have all that it needs to thrive?
Do you behave passionately when you are working in and on your business? When you speak to others about what you do, does your passion come forth? Do others undeniably experience your passion? (2 weeks ago I unleashed my passion with a potential client. I fell in love with what I did all over again!)
Have you ever met someone who feels a “little overflowing with their passion”? Did it makes you say, “Wonder what that was all about?” Well, that might be a clue that you aren’t 100% on fire with what you are doing. Did you ever think about it like this?
Is your passion for your business and your offerings hot, hot, hot?
How hot is your passion for what you do? Now a slightly different question: How hot is your passion for your business? Whether you are the owner, or a business leader, the question and answer is applicable and revealing.
It could reveal you have deep passion for what you do, but maybe not the business you are currently doing it in. Conversely, it could be your passion is in alignment with the business, but not your service to/with it. Could this be because it’s time to (1) learn something new, (2) find another service/offering/expertise to serve in your marketplace, or (3) find a new outlet (business/organization) to be part of to re-ignite your passion? Regardless, it’s all good!
You deserve to be on fire about how you serve, who you serve, what you serve, and from which organization. Why? It’s what makes you shine! It is your genius radiating outward and it is very attractive to others. This brilliantly shining genius of yours makes you a super-star and rocks your, and the business’s, performance.
Is your passion hot, hot, hot? Is it so hot that you are unconditionally shining? If so, yay! for you 🙂 If not, reach out and we can find a way to re-ignite your flame or find a new one all together for you so your 2014 will shine brightly!
