Maybe you’ve had success in the past and at some point lost your passion.
How do you reignite the fire that made you want to start a business in the first place or ignite a team that’s slow to grow?
John Maxwell is a leading expert on leadership and says that passion has to be ignited within, not from without. That means no one can talk you into finding your passion or acting on it everyday.
No matter how many seminars or inspirational training programs you listen to that tell of other people’s passions it’s not going to ignite YOUR passion.
If you have a team or want to be a team leader, John Maxwell suggests instead of trying to ignite other people’s passion, start helping them discover their passion. To do that ask three questions:
- What do you cry about?
- What do you sing about?
- What do you dream about?
The first two questions speak to what touches you at a deep level today. The third answers what will bring you fulfillment tomorrow.
These questions often help people discover their true passion.
While everyone can possess passion, not everyone takes the time to discover it. And there’s not much anyone outside of themselves can do about it.
Passion is fuel for the will. Passion turn’s your have-to’s into want-to’s. Want we accomplish in life is based less on what we want and more on how much we want it. That’s why you can’t push someone into fulfilling their passion. The secret to willpower is what someone once called wantpower.
If people who want something enough usually find the willpower to achieve it.
You can’t help people become winners unless they want to win.
We all want to become great leaders in our organizations and to grow great leaders on our teams.
You will find that once you let go of trying to ignite passions and helping people find their own passion and igniting within will take a load off of you as a leader.
The good news is their are people out their that want to find their passion and network marketing is an amazing vehicle to do that.
Keep leading and learning!
