Years ago I had a business I was pouring TONS of effort into yet getting very little in return.
I was desperate and in urgent need of a venture that could earn me some serious cash.
So I asked my friend Mercy: “What business can I do that would earn me money!”
She responded: “Hannah, you’re asking the wrong question. You should be asking: What business could I do that I’d be Wildly Passionate about?”
Years later I see the great wisdom of her words.
That business I slaved over but was NOT excited about tanked- DUH!
It was bound to fail because my heart wasn’t in it-
I’ve learned that no matter how much one earns in a business- if you don’t L.O.V.E it, it’s just another job- only worse because when you’re the owner much more weighs heavily on your shoulders.
Now I have a business I’m crazy about! It includes my TV Project Dream BIG.
A few days ago Mercy asked me, “How do you feel about the people you make Dream BIG for?”
“I LOVE THEM!” I responded without any hesitation!
And I do love our Dream BIGGERS!
Had I pushed to make a “success” of a business only for the money I wouldn’t enjoy it as much as Dream BIG thrills me! And I sure wouldn’t love the individuals who make up our audience.
I’ve learned that if what we do is not founded on Love it can never bring us Joy.
P.S. I had the pleasure and honour of interviewing extreme adventurer Riaan Manser recently.
What a rocker guy!
Below is the second half of our interview with him.
I shared this clip at a business where Dream BIG had been asked to give an inspirational talk- Our audience was blown away by what drives Riaan- I hope it’ll bless you too!
