Without it you’re an empty suit.
With it you’re a force to be reckoned with.
Without it you trudge along though life hoping to get by.
With it you give all you have toward something…a goal, or a belief system.
Without it you’re in the pursuit of mediocre.
With it you pursue excellence.
Without it you live in a world of vanilla.
With it you are alive and vibrant and colorful.
So the question is, what are you passionate about? As you lead people, do they know your passion? Do they feel your passion? Do they ride on the waves of the currents you create?
My oldest daughter is a very intense and passionate person. I’d like to think she got that from her father. When she’s into something, she’s all in! She has a no holds barred, give it your all attitude. When you are around her, you know what she’s passionate about. And this is one of the reasons she’s a very successful multi-store manager for a children’s’ clothing line.
Passionate people are contagious people. You want to be like them. You want to follow them.
If you asked the people you lead what you’re passionate about, how do you think they’d answer?
If you don’t know, find out.
Or, by the way, do you know what they’re passionate about?
