The most important quality any entrepreneur has to have is PASSION. Don't ever apologize for being passionate, even if it shakes up people.
When passion walks in the room, everyone stands up. Passion is the spark that lights the gasoline that is life. Passion is what everyone wants and if you have it, people will either want to be like you or be with you.
In a meeting or a party or in any group, the people with passion in their eyes are the people whom everyone else is listening to and watching. They’re the leaders.
Everyone looks to passionate people for what’s next, because their passion leads us to horizons few have the vision or the courage to explore.
People are not born passionate
Passion is the process by which you manifest your dreams, and far too many people in this world have given up on their dreams or sacrificed them for a comfortable way of life or a secure job.
Passionate People Rule
That’s why passionate people rule; they’re making their dreams happen. Entrepreneurs are passionate people. They’re not content to sit around and let life happen to them; they’re in control of making life happen.
That’s why some people in this world are jealous of passionate people. We’re taught early to go to school, get good grades, get a good degree, then a good job with a good title in a good career track.
Becoming an entrepreneur means learning to value ideas and passion over degrees and job titles.
Entrepreneurs are working outside of the system
They’re taking risks most people only dream of. They’re using their brains and their hearts and their vision to become more realized people every day. People running on passion are 100 percent alive, using every single capacity God has given them to live life to the limit on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual spectrum every day.
No wonder some people are jealous of passionate people. You don’t need those people.
