Follow your Passion…blah blah blah

You hear it all the time Follow Your Passion and you will never feel like you are working a day inf your life…Right!!!? Um news flash it does and will feel like work and as an entrepreneur you can’t take “passion” to the bank and try to cash it ( I’m pretty sure I unsuccessfully tried that a few years ago)

You will work harder then you have ever in your life but, it will be the most rewarding work of your life when you truly live out your passion. But I’ve found that passion really comes into play in those tough dark moments when obstacles are in your way and it feels so big that it will swallow you. When you feel like nothing is left Passion is that little voice deep down in the pit of your stomach that tells you to click into overdrive and it continues to whispers…follow me 🙂

But to take it a little further check out this article, should we just focus on following our passion like we all have been told or should we actually be cultivating it. Cal Newport author of  So Good They Can’t Ignore YouWhat are the key differences?

“Follow” implies that the you discover the passion in advance then go match it to a job. At which point, you’re done.

“Cultivate” implies that you work toward building passion for your job. This is a longer process but it’s way more likely to pay dividends. It requires you to approach your work like a craftsman. Honing your ability, and then leveraging your value, once good, to shape your working life toward the type of lifestyle that resonates with you.Here is the link to the rest of the article http://www.theminimalists.com/cal/

    Well I figure you would probably do both at some point depending on the goal involved! I think in following many dreams in perfecting your business you actually would be cultivating it!
