Finding your passion and success: It’s time to listen

On finding your passion and success….

“The next question you are likely to ask yourself is: How do we measure success? Success, of course, is very personal; there is no universal way of measuring success. What do successful people like Bill Gates and Mother Teresa have in common? On the surface, it’s hard to find anything they share-;and yet both are successful. I personally believe the real metric of success isn’t the size of your bank account. It’s the number of lives in which you might be able to make a positive difference. This is the measure of success we need to apply while we are on our journey to success.” –Naveen Jain (source)

Bill Gates

On our road to pursuing our passion, finding meaning, and making an impact,
the notion of success often appears.

The question becomes:

1. How do we measure success?
2. What are the characteristics of successful people?

As I study the path of many great people, a unique pattern pattern will
often emerge.  Similar characteristics will surface, and within them, a
framework can be found.

Note: Like the quote mentioned above, success can be measure in multiple
ways. It’s important for you to understand what success means to you

With many moments in our life, we often *chase* after success, but often the most profound thing we can do is to open ourselves to ideas. If you’re an entrepreneur, it’s about listening to ideas from your audience, market, employees, client, and your own heart.

Remembering Neil Armstrong & your Great Adventure

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

Are you looking to take on your own great adventure?

Does your “moon” seem to be impossible to reach?

In remembrance of Neil Armstrong,  I would like to take a moment a reflect on his contribution not only in terms of space navigation, but also the inspiration and motivation he gave to an entire generation (and will continue to give for generations to come).

Upon examining his biography, you can see what an unusual history this remarkable man had. Surprisingly, as a child, Neil was prone to motion sickness, and frequently had nausea during long periods of aerobatics! Even though to many, this would have been the final wall they hit, Armstrong continued to pursue a career as a test pilot, and later as the first man to ever walk on the moon.

His heroic path is one to not only admire, but to emulate. His career had been one about pushing both personal and environmental limitations. It is with no surprise that Neil Armstrong would have displayed characteristics that were in such alignment with his Junoon. His energy, his desire to achieve, his ability to engineer his own luck , was able to prompt him into greatness and stand as the cornerstone of heroism, courage, and bravery.

While many are not looking to take a flight to the moon, how often do our goals appear “out of reach”? We often look at these as if they were the moon, seemingly unobtainable to reach.

But when we look at the great success stories, we begin to see a trend of ordinary people propelling themselves to greatness.  Their start was much like, if not the same, as yours. Neil Armstrong had motion sickness as a child- but he was able to overcome it and reach the historic moon landing.  We each have our limitations, but if can move beyond our humble beginnings, we too, can achieve remarkable things.

So my question to you is:

What is your “moon landing”?

What is holding you back from getting?

As always, I’ve created free resources to help assist you along the way.
