To accomplish your dreams, you have to let go of your ego to reach the other side. To do that, you have to learn to be comfortable with the uncomfortable. Push your own limits to get to the top of the mountain. It’s very uncomfortable and very lonely sometimes when you push through barriers. It’s very unnerving to blaze an unbeaten path. Then you plateau and you start partying and enjoy your landing spot. GUESS WHAT? It’s time to do it again and again and again. WHY?
Because only the best rises to the top again and again. Stopping lets you off the hook. Then you start to hate everyone who blazes past you. You resent them because you have cut off your own power and severed your success.
Passion doesn’t settle. Passion is the opposite of settling
What in your life are you not passionate about?
1. Get rid of everything that you are not passionate about. Clear your space until the only things left are those that you are crazy passionate about.
2. How do you spend your time? How much time do you spend doing things that you aren’t passionate about?
How many non passionate people are you around each day?
Do you love them? Or do you settle just to have someone around?
Are they passionate people living passionate lives?
- What do you like to do?
- What makes you happy?
- What can you do that makes you forget that time exists?

Interaction, transformation and helping people is your passion. It’s the core of everyone’s passion.

Use everything available to you! Craigslist, facebook, meetup, google groups, relatives, friends. Let the world know what you are offering.

Once you hit your mark, dig deep. There’s a lot of gold in each new success. Think of apple…the ipod became the iphone, the iphone became the iPad, the iPad became the iwatch. And with each deeper level came more opportunity for growth and revenue. Dig deep into the soil of your ideas and you will discover gold time and time again.
