"Find your passion, and you will be successful is a bunch of B.S.”
This is what entrepreneur Charles Major has to say about passion alone leading to success. He explains that many people neglect to ask the one essential question: “Can my passion make me money?”
Let’s say you’re great with numbers, and you love music. It might make more sense for you to pursue a career as an accountant working in the music industry. It would be great to spend all day tickling the ivories. But if the competition is fierce, and you’re a 10 on the passion scale but lower in the talent department, it’s not likely you’ll be able to make money as an artist.
Reality check: In most situations, income is going to let you continue to do what you love to do, and in the end, allow you to do work that’s meaningful. Charles understands how important it is to do what you’re good at. He is an author, coach and mentor to folks like us who want more than a paycheck. He would be the first to remind us: When we partner with passion, our opportunities abound.
I am at the very dawn of my career.
I know exactly where I want
this journey to lead.
You know, too;
time and again I have asked You
to take me there and now
I also ask that You grant me
wisdom in the journey.
Teach me to embrace each challenge
as a new lesson learned.
Help me recognize the joy of the work
the unexpected truth
that there is as much delight
in the process as there is in the result.
Open my eyes that I might recognize my work
as a service to those around me,
teach me to cherish my career
for the good it enables me to do.
And when I have at last reached my goal,
remind me that I did so with You at my side,
so that I may offer you my gratitude
not only for what I have accomplished through You,
but also for who I have become.
