"If you hear a voice within you saying 'you are not a painter' then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced. - Vincent Van Gogh
Making the decision to climb out of bed every morning and drag yourself into a 9 to 5 is not always easy. But it is the reality of what many people face today. It is what they do every day to be paid at minimum wage from a CEO, with the big corner office. I’m sure you know that office, right!
Of course, you do! It’s the one office employees dream about having every time they pass by it. Does the future of that corner office have your name on it?
Not everyone is going to be motivated each day to work long nights and rise with early mornings for that big “CEO” corner office. Successful entrepreneurs are more ecstatic about waking up each day because they are the head of their own startup. The leadership they display about their passion is going to be the key driver to achieving the success they aspire to.
A published article by Entrepreneur magazine, supports the importance of staying passionate about your business because it is a key driver throughout the sustainability of a business. One way to stay passionate about your business is to fall in love with the problem. Falling in love with the problem allows a business owner to stay focused on solving the customer’s problem and not so much on their own solution.
Without passion, it’s difficult to differentiate yourself from the crowd and get people to take notice. Allow your passion to show in the “real” relationships you build. This will also display in your work or product – and will strengthen your personal relationships. This is imperative
when you are in the startup phase of your business. If your only goal is to make as much money off other people as fast as you can, eventually you will make business decisions for the wrong reasons and ultimately hurt your reputation and growth potential. The longevity of your business can be accomplished by developing more relationships, inside and out of the office.
This style of relationships is what helps fund your passion.
Your greatest strength in building a financially healthy business is being a keen listener to your customer needs. Act by performing research about your customer pain points when you want to understand their needs. If a customer says they want certain things it is important for you as a business owner to give it to them. This will in turn create the opportunity for customers to share their positive experience with your business and refer others to your business. It takes time to build wealth, stay motivated to build wealth with current, existing and new customers.
Use your passion to embrace, reveal and stand apart in your business.
