What Makes a Leader “Successful”?
PASSION! Successful leaders are always passionate. They are positive, energetic, passionate and surround themselves with like people.
To be truly successful you must be passionate in your work. It has to bring out an energy that motivates and excites you! This “excitement” is what rubs off on others and gets you to the top.
So what is it that makes your heart sing? What makes your heart race and words want to spew out of your mouth with five million thoughts running through your head all at once? That’s where you’ll find your passion. This passion is what makes successful people.
A successful leader knows exactly what that passion is. This creates an energy in you that is glowing and contagious. It draws people to you and creates an environment of positivity.
Once you discover what drives you and SPARKS this passion, successful people find other passionate and successful people to collaborate with. My mentor once told me, “If you’re the smartest one in the room, you’re in the wrong room.” True Story. To evolve your knowledge and resources you need to reach out to other experts in your field and learn from them. The smartest people say they still have so much to learn. The most successful people credit those around them. These are the people to look for.
If you have found your passion and love what you do, pat yourself on the back and high fives all around! If you haven’t yet, go for it! Find that passionate person that draws your attention and run with them! You’ll find it amazing how strong energy is and how with a little inspiration anything can be done!
