Why it is important to find passion and your why?
Yesterday I spent about 12 minutes on a traffic exchange (clicking links). With only 12 minutes of work, I passed over 55% of the people that are in the program. See this exchange actually keeps track of the clicks and shows the people in front of you. (Note: A smart idea to get people to click). Especially competitive people like me. Someone is 1 or 2 clicks ahead of me, I have to push forward. Even when I have said I am leaving the site. It doesn’t matter your stance or belief in traffic exchanges, I am writing about the lesson learned.
It has been said that you beat 80% of the people by just showing up. That example above demonstrates that. I ran out of time, but I know with another 10 or 12 minutes, I would have passed over 80%. So with minimum effort or showing up, you will beat most of the people. By the way, the battle only takes place when you are striving to be in the top 5%. So the question is why is it so easy to beat most people?
I hear people all the time saying that people do things specifically for the money. If that is true, why is 95% of our society broke and retiring broke? I am willing to say, most people are not driven by money. They know they need money for certain necessities and they will do just enough to make it happen.
The same people that say people are driven by money will turn around and respond to what I just said by saying, “People are lazy”. My question is, “how can you be driven by money and lazy at the same time?”
My belief is people have not taken the time to figure out what they want and then pursue it. Yes, I know, I have heard it before – “People have to make a living”. So do it. What does that have to do with you figuring out what you want and pursuing it. Are you saying, “You can only do one or the other?”
Robert Kiyosaki said it best, “What do you do for homework. Work when you are at home away from your work.”
Are you spending your time at home away from work, watching TV, playing video games, playing on social medias? I am not saying you can’t do those things, but they cannot be all you do. Especially when you are not where you want to be in life.
See I don’t believe people are lazy. I don’t believe people don’t focus. I do believe they focus on what they don’t want and that is why they are receiving it. You get what you focus on (good or bad).
Here is my suggestion. I posted this the other day. Lock yourself up in a quiet area
and figure out what you want. Do not come out until you are fired up or crying, whatever drives you.
Sometime today, take out 15 minutes and figure it out. I don’t care what needs to be completed today. Nothing is more important then you figuring this out. Without taking the time to do this, you will continue to be frustrated with the results you are getting out of life.
Here is an exercise you can use: Write down what you want. On one side of the paper, write why you want it. On the other side, why you believe you will have it. This exercise I got from Esther and Jerry Hicks (Abraham). Then spend 15 minutes a day (quietly) seeing yourself having what you want. The opportunity you are looking for will find you.
PS - The answer to why you beat most people. They haven't completed the exercise above and figured out what they want. So when you compete against most people, they are participating in an activity, event or job that they have no passion for. For that reason, they don't want or have any desire to fight to be the best.
