The secret to successful career is simple: you have to be passionate about what you do. Where there is passion, there is success! As a matter of fact, this rule applies to everything in life, not only your career.
I struggled with my career choices for years. Raised by parents who believed that if you work hard you will do well in life I did what I knew was the right thing to do: got a college degree then got a job that paid the bills. I was never happy with my professional life though. I struggled, searched and picked people’s brains until I figured out that I simply was not passionate about the work that I was doing. Family always came first and as moms often do, I kept putting my needs on the back burner. But I was miserable and it showed. I was loosing traction and was soon laid off when my company was sold off to another. That was a turning point for me.
One year later, I now live my passion and not only do I make more money, I am a happier person who is running a successful business.
Living Your Passion
What does it mean to live your passion? It means that when you get up in the morning you are all pumped because you get to do the thing that you love doing the most. You don’t even call it work because what you do makes you happy. In fact, you would do whatever it is you’re doing for free. You cannot stop thinking about it nor talking about it. Living your passion gives you the best energy there is.
Where There Is Passion, There Is Success!
Passion gives you the drive, the energy to push yourself to do more, do better. When you are passionate about your work, you will always strive for the best. You will work harder, stay up longer, be more efficient and effective. You will seek challenges and take them on with more confidence and strength. Success will come naturally.
For me design has always been a part of my life. When I finally turned my passion for design into a career, it was a perfect marriage. My love for design and offering a great product shows in every phone call, every client email and every deliverable. I not only do my best, I go one step beyond that. I’m always hungry for more so I learn new skills and improve my techniques every day.
I am 100% better at what I do now then only 6 months ago. How is it possible that I, a mother of 3 little boys, have become a successful designer in just a year? Simple: I live my passion. Channel your passion into a business opportunity and you will be on a road to a successful career.
