The primary reason for failure is a lack of passion. From my experience in both business and social environments, passion is often the missing ingredient when someone fails. A lot of times, people simply assume that success determined by wealth or fame. Therefore, if someone doesn’t have much more wealth or fame than they require for something, they tend to not work hard at it. This mindset sometimes prevents people from starting things in the first place and promotes the idea that only a few can really achieve anything. True success is not all about money or fame; it is an achievement of something desired. Remembering this will immediately make your goals seem more attainable.
We have to be proud of what we do with our lives, especially when it comes to our work. A truly successful person is one who is proud of the work he or she does. Passion automatically makes us better equipped to overcome obstacles. Our enthusiasm rises and we tend to become more positive about everything we are doing. Passion is also infectious; it makes partners out of doubters. When it comes to starting a business, 50% of the reason why people invest in companies is because of the team behind it. A passionate team will not only work harder, they will come up with better ideas and most importantly, they will constantly strive to improve themselves.
