Are You Passionate For Your Business As An Entrepreneur?

Love To Dance

Dancing Soothes The Savage Beast!

I love music and I love to dance. Many people know this about me already. I am passionate about music and about my dancing.  This past Friday I went out dancing and I was literally on the dance floor from 8 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Non-stop!

It drives me, it’s replenishes me and keeps me sane. Dancing soothes the savage beast within me! 😉

I’m so passionate about my dancing that I will not give it up even through major events in my life. Why? Because this passion touches me deep down in my soul.  Music and dance moves me like nothing else, outside my children and family.

When I work, I dance. I dance in my head when music is playing in my car. I create dances in my head whenever I hear a good beat.  I hear music when I walk and I’m always creating dances as I move and breathe!  It’s naturally within me – passion for dance and music.

I’m so passionate about it that we travel around the United States for big dance conventions. I’ve performed I’m so passionate about it and when I was working on my Masters, my passion kept me sane as I juggled a life, a job, small children and obtaining an education!

Connecting Your Passion To Your Business

Soooo what’s the connection to business you might ask?  It’s about PASSION!  Passion for life, passion for dance, and passion as an entrepreneur for your business!

I am as passionate about my business as an entrepreneur as I am with my dancing!  As an entrepreneur, I constantly want more and drive to get better results…to be the best!

My brain is always in ‘entrepreneur’ mode.  I’m always thinking of ways to do it better.

Blog topics always come into my head from the weirdest thoughts and how I can relate them to something positive in blogging and about business.

I’m always thinking of ways to improve my pitch, my products, my website, my blogging, etc.  I’m always thinking of how to help my customer, my target niche!

Passionate For Your Business

We should all have this type of ‘Passion’ for  your businesses!  Being passionate for your business will drive you to do the impossible!

It will keep you going when you feel there is nothing else to do.  It will keep you going when there appears to be nowhere else to go. It will keep you motivated when there seems it is all coming to an end.

What is your life passion? Is it your business? As an entrepreneur, we should be as passionate for your business as we are about whatever our life passion is.

What are you willing to do and how far are you willing to go to meet your passion and complete your life goals?

Being passionate for your business will drive you when you’re tired, when you’re weak, and when you’re sick. Recently, I had some life events that took me away from blogging and I was still worried about getting the work done for my blog.  Passion!

When the kids are sick, I still worry about blogging.  Passion!

When my dog needed surgery, I still worried about blogging.  Passion!

When I’m tired from working a 14 hour day, I’m still worried about blogging.  Passion!

Passion for your business will drive you to succeed, to never give up, to help get you motivated every time there is a block.  Passion will keep you moving and help you get to the success level you want.

So for me, dancing keeps me sane because it allows me some down time in my mind, but passion for my business is always at the back of my mind and it drives me – always! Success is my passion as well as it will help me retire early and provide a better life for my family.

I love being passionate about dance, music, blogging and being an entrepreneur.  That passion will keep you from giving up in all circumstances.

Drawing On That Passion When It Gets Tough

We should draw upon our passion when we are tired, angry or just tired of trying to reach a certain level of success.  Use the power of your passion to get you there.  Passion is like fire!  It burns – until you reach your level of success.

Are you passionate about your business, your entrepreneurship?  How do you use this passion to help you get success?   What drives you toward your goals?  What are your ideas about being passionate about your business?

    Barbara…you are so right! Passion matters so much when you are a blogger because it is very easy to get to the place where you feel like you are doing the same thing over and over again.

    To me, each article is brand new, and it’s like I make a new friend and share helpful ideas with my readership. It’s funny…you told me YEARS ago that blogging would be my bread and butter, and it has become exactly that as I help other businesses with setup, article writing, and marketing. Thank you for your encouragement. It’s great to see that your passion for blogging is still strong!

    Great article, friend!

      Thanks Christi.

      I feel passion is the core of our being otherwise we would not be able to be successful entering this internet world of marketing, blogging, etc.

      Has it been years since I told you that! 🙂 I remember because I always wanted to do what you do. I wish I had that skill of building websites physically. I think that’s one of the greatest skills and one everyone can use particularly for all those coming online now. Yeah, you’re finally there and working with that. I can see you making a ton of money on it! 🙂 So stay there and werk it girl! It’s yours now! Go get it!

      Lov ya,

    Hey Barbara,

    I hear what you’re saying my dear, without the passion for what we do we’ll easily get burnt out and quit. I will tell you though, I took Mom out of town the weekend before last and I never once thought about my blog. It was really a nice break if you must know the truth but we were visiting the entire weekend and I just didn’t have time to even think about it either. I planned the weekend around a time that would be more convenient for me to get away. LOL!!!

    But I do agree that in order to love what we do that we need to be passionate about it or we’ll just be yet another statistic throwing in the towel.

    Although I love blogging, I’m much more passionate about helping people and it just so happens that it comes in the form of blogging. We have to have an outlet right!

    Great share and love the dance pictures girl. Awesome.

      Hey Adrienne,

      Despite our passion, you are so right. We have to have time outside of our blogging. We always need a break. Passion can drive you to success, but it can also drive us to do too much. Our brains sometimes need a break and I’m glad you and your mom were able to get away and you got a chance to relax.

      Glad you enjoyed the pictures. Dancing is as much my passion and my relaxation as my blogging is to work.

      Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Barbara,

    I love your passion! I can see it through your writing because you are always looking for ways to improve your blog and your business. Passion takes us there.

    I know that feeling of going about the day and thinking of blog titles and so much I want to shout out to the world. I usually put those ideas on my phone in a note. (yes I came a long way with that phone thing lol)

    I just write and write all the time when an idea hits me. Sometimes it turns into a blog, sometimes it is a short paragraph on my Facebook Page.

    It’s all about passion!

    Love your picture!

      Hey Donna,

      Thanks so much. It is so weird that every thought seems to be the beginning of a blog post LOL! I think I should do a post on ‘you know you’re a blogger when …” 🙂

      Thank you for feeling my passion! That passion is going to take me to millionaire status. No one believes that but me lol! But that’s all that’s important. Funny, I always ‘write’ notes in my phone as well so I’ll remember what I want to write about. I started that practice about 2 years ago. It’s very useful and I’m proud of you for ‘getting there with the phone.’ 🙂

      I always feel the need to write all the time, but life doesn’t always allow it, yet my passion survives…as does yours!
      Thanks Donna.

    Lovely post, Barbara! I especially needed to read this in this very moment because lately I’ve been losing my motivation. I really need to get that passion back. I really love my topic, but I think for me it’s a matter of finding a way to present it that excites me. I’m thinking that I need to get into videos! That might bring a different element for me!

    I love your dancing picture!! Matter of fact, I was out dancing too this past week although I wasn’t out to 1am….ha.. I enjoy the movement and freedom of dancing to music.

    Thank you for the inspiring post that came just in time.

      Hi Jennifer,
      I know how it is. Sometimes it’s just hard to find and keep the passion. Sometimes it’s as simple as how to present it as you said and other times it’s just life stuff keeps getting in the way. If we continue to think about it, maybe relaxing a bit, will bring on a new perspective and help us get there.

      Thanks about the pics. I do love to dance! I’m glad if it can inspire you a bit. Sometimes we find the right words for the least places.

      Keep striving girl. You are not alone.

    Hi Barbara,

    Great Post about Passion!! Love your picture and yes I can see you dancing between the lines of your post!!

    Indeed, passion is so important to do what we are doing!! It is the energy that comes from bringing more of YOU into what you do. You may face bumps or hurdles along the way but passion is what is going to take you through them.

    This post is so inspirational to me at this time as I am facing an obstacle in my business and I was starting to lose the motivation I used to have when I started but what keeps me going is my passion and my why. Yes, I am inspired now to face whatever obstacle and reach my dream.

    Thanks Barbara for a motivating and inspiring post! Great Share!! Have a great week ahead,

    Be Blessed,

      Hi Neamat,

      Thank you. Yes, truly I’m a dancing machine LOL! I truly know how you feelthough. Funny thing is, I wrote that post for myself. I , too am having some down time (in my mind at least) and I needed to inspire and force myself to remember my passion for my business. I had to remind myself that although tired or going through ‘whatever’ my passion still remains the same. Writing that post helped me to remember all that I inspire to be and without my passion I will never get there.

      I started thinking that if I feel that way, others may need the inspiration too. I’m glad it was inspirational to you and trust me, I truly understand how you feel when we start to lose that motivation I’m still working at getting better and getting to a ‘better place.’ Best of luck to you too and have a blessed week.

      God bless,

    Hi barbara , this is an inspiring post, every entrepreneur is passionate about his or her business, if some one is not passionate the he’s just a businessman not an entrepreneur.

    When you are passionate about something then there are no working hours no stress, you just work as long as your body allows, well i’m like this i like blogging and reading great articles like this one, these are very inspiring to me.

    I can blog day in day out without thinking about how much time i’m putting in and how must result should i get, i think if i’m doing great work sooner or later i’ll get recognized leading my business to grow.

    So passion is like fuel to me as it is for you

    Keep up your passion , God bless you,

    Hi Barbara,

    Being passionate is very important in our business. I look at people like Steve Jobs and how he lived his life. Full of passion. I think people who do achieve great things are all passionate people. Maybe not so demonstratively as Steve was but they are passionate.

    I know you love your dance. it is great you have that as an outlet and way to stay fit and young. The fact your travel for it too is excellent.

    I think people who are stuck in jobs they hate are missing out so much in life.

    Thanks for a great post Barbara.
