I was talking to a friend recently about my blog. They asked me how it’s been going. I told them it’s going well! And that I spend a certain amount of hours on it after work every week. I went over how I review my blogging list to make sure I stay on top of it all. Plus all the other little details that go into it. They were impressed, asking what was my secret to success. I told them, “I’m obsessed!” Truthfully, that’s one secret to success!
I mean obsession in the best way – a healthy obsession. Keyword: healthy. I’ll rephrase, a better word is probably devotion. When I think about my work and passions in life, I can fairly say I am devoted to what I’m passionate about. That devotion is what makes something a success.
Have you ever started a project only to lose interest? That’s normal! It’s OK to let those things go. Unless of course, you need to do it for work, in which case, try to find joy in it and that will help you succeed. The more you care about something the better you will be at it. If you like it, it will make you happy. Caring about something leads to spending time on something, and this leads to wanting to learn more about it. The more time you spend, the more you learn… the better you get, and the more successful you’ll be!
It’s much easier to have a career, a project or a goal you feel passionate about. Devotion equals success.
