How Passion is Important in Becoming Successful

“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”

– Pelé

Passion is what drives true success. Working hard may get you far in life, but when combined with passion it has the potential to provide fulfillment. Three factors can help guide the process of passion and lead to success: motivation, focus, and determination.

“The way to stay inspired and motivated is by doing what you like, doing what you love.”

– Raphael Saadiq

Motivation can be rooted in either extrinsic or intrinsic rewards. Extrinsic rewards, such as money or fame may push you to do well, however, there is a possibility it will not lead to the gratification tied to intrinsic encouragement. Intrinsic motivators are values that are core to your being; things you could work on your whole life without payment and be pleased. These motivators are what fuel your success. It is important to constantly draw on intrinsic motivators to keep you going.

While motivation is key, but without directing your passion it is difficult to accomplish much. By applying a specific focus you begin to delve deep into the details of your field and discover how you can offer originality and value. It is through this originality that you bring something new to the table which can have a significant impact. 

“Motivation is what gets you started, Habit is what keeps you going.”

– Jim Ryun

Success is not something gained overnight, it requires determination. Working tirelessly and with consistent drive is how you begin to make a difference. It is the formation of a habit that can allow you to tackle problems with the persistence necessary to reach success. It is through this habit that there is potential to find fulfillment and worth in what you do. The repetitive process of failure and trial offers a valuable perspective that is not easily obtained.
