Business, Enterprise Edition Nothing Great Happens, Until Someone Becomes Passionate!
By: Keith Abraham • 2 years ago •
Anything great in the world has always been achieved by someone with a PASSION.
After 22 years of travelling the world presenting to more than 1.5 million people, I have learnt that our lives are made up of four parts
- Things in your life you LOVE to do;
- Things in your life you LIKE to do;
- Things in your life you HAVE to do; and
- Things in your life that you HATE to do!
Now if your life is consumed by the things you HAVE to do and HATE to do, then you are not going to be passionate!
Passion is achieved in two ways.
1: You go and do the things you are passionate about and you earn a living or
2: You go and earn a living, so you can do what you are passionate about!
DISCOVER YOUR PASSION
The challenge for so many people is they do neither and they simply exist and endure life. You need to give yourself permission to pursue your passions.
My goal in the next few paragraphs is to assist you to discover your passions, pursue your passions and live a passionate life.
What is your passion? What do you love to do? I think we all have passions, but as we go through our lives they become stifled and die.
The one thing I know about people who pursue their passion, they have an energy and enthusiasm for life.
Your passion could be a hobby, a sport or an activity you loved to do as a child. Pursuing your passion fuels your fire which motivates and inspires you to go on.

Write Down 100 Things You Want to Do in Your Life Time!
DARE TO BE DIFFERENT
Statistics tell us that only 3% of people sit down and write out their goals. So, if you want to be different write out your life plan.
Where do you want to be in 10 years? Before you say, “That is years away!”, think about your age, and then take off 10 years. Was that so long ago?
What do you need to change to tap into your current opportunities and your true potential? I believe that if you want to master change, all you have to do is make a small change this week that will affect next week.
If you continue to do these small changes you will perfect whatever you are trying to change or improve upon.
DESTINATION TO PURSUE
What is your current destination? You would not get on a flight not knowing where your final destination was going to be!
But, how many people go through life with no flight plan. Where are you going in the next 12 months, 2 years, 5 years or the next 10 years? Have you mapped out your flight plan?
Once you know your destination, then you need to have a month-by- month plan to follow.
What are you doing this month to pursue your goals?
Every task or goal broken down into small steps becomes easier to achieve over time. If you remember to put these small steps in place it will make a huge difference to your level of focus.
If you don’t spend time, energy and money developing yourself, then you are a poor judge of a good investment. What have you done in the last 12 months to develop your skills and enhance your knowledge? Jim Rohn has a great quote, “Formal education will make you a living, but self education will make you a fortune”. As you know, good intentions won’t make it happen for you.
Sooner or later you need to take action. You need to be disciplined to follow through with your plan of action. The great by-product of being disciplined is that our self- esteem is enhanced.
When you feel like you are making progress your confidence increases, your self belief grows and you defeat procrastination. What action steps are you going to take today?
DETERMINATION TO ACHIEVE
Whenever you set a goal, you will be challenged by life. Roadblocks will be put in front of you to test you, to see if you are really serious about the goals you want to achieve.
This is when you need to be determined to achieve what you have set out to accomplish.
Remember it is OK is stop and rest and celebrate where you have come from.
You determine whether the roadblock will be a setback or simply a stepping- stone!
