I was at a book launch this morning (more on that later) and Peter Switzer was presenting what he thinks is critical to the success of a business. He had an acronym to demonstrate the commitment it takes..he said you need to ESD – Eat, Sleep and Drink your business. The point is though for me it does not seem like hard work when you are truly passionate about what you do.
I was sent this excerpt today and it got me thinking about passion (which is basically what Peter was saying) so I thought I’d share it.
- “Years ago, Scully Blotnick conducted a study of 1,500 people. They were put into two categories: Category A said they would pursue money first and do what they really wanted to do later. Over 1,245 people went into that group. Category B, made up of 255 people, said they would seek their interests first, and trust that money would follow later.
Twenty years later, there were 101 millionaires from the entire group. Only one came from group A. The remaining 100 millionaires all came from group B, the group that said they would pursue their passions first and let money come later. Right there is another clue on how to attract money.
Where is your focus, money or passion?”
