“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
Almost every one of the self-made millionaires in my study pursued their dream despite the fact that they were not ready.
It didn’t matter that they did not know what they were doing. It did not matter that they did not have enough money. It did not matter that no one around them believed in them.
Are self-made millionaires just hard-wired to be courageous?
Are they just hard-wired with greater confidence?
Are they just hard-wired with greater intelligence?
No, no and no.
They are consumed with passion. That passion gives birth to courage, confidence, intelligence, persistence, single-minded focus, enthusiasm, motivation, agility, strength, resilience, energy, attention to detail, work ethic, and every other success trait that’s needed in order for you to succeed.
Within the DNA of every human being are the seeds to succeed. For most individuals, these seeds remain dormant, however. What brings these seeds to life is passion. What triggers passion is the pursuit of a dream.
When we pursue a dream, we stir to life these success seeds and their fruit is courage, confidence, intelligence, persistence, single-minded focus, enthusiasm, motivation, agility, strength, resilience, energy, attention to detail, work ethic and every other success trait.
Passion is the water, sunshine and the soil that brings to life and nourishes the success trait seeds that reside in each and every one of us.
