It’s not uncommon for most of us to get stuck in a rut once in a while. We are spinning our wheels. We are trying new things. And nothing seems to work. We start looking for new jobs or start creating new dreams when in fact, our dreams may be right in front of us and we just don’t realize it.
Sometimes we need to look at our careers differently. Take me for example. I provide appointment setting services to professionals in the financial industry and virtual assistant services to small business owners, executives and sales people. That is what I do. I sell a service.
But for me it’s so much more than that. I provide jobs for many professional schedulers and assistants, I help hundreds of people build their businesses and exceed their sales goals, and I motivate people to take the time to do what they love best and my company will take care of the rest. The income I make from my job goes back into the economy to help support the families that own the goods and services that I purchase, it goes to charitable organizations that are helping millions of people and it goes to raising three great children – all of whom make a difference in the world each and every day.
So that’s my passion – that’s why I wake up every morning and sit at my desk and do my job. Because I love it. I’m having so much fun!
So take a look at your job. What do you do? And what do you really do? You may just fall in love with your job all over again or you may realize that it is time to live your dream and go after the career you always wanted. Either way, your sales will soar.
How does finding your passion increase your sales? Because passion fuels drive, it fuels motivation and it fuels the will to succeed. When I realized my true passion for my business and my company’s true potential I tripled sales in one year. Why? Because I devoted more time to customer service, marketing and training. There is a lot of business to be had and a lot of money to be made if you truly want it. You are going to have to work hard for it, but if you are having tons of fun then it won’t feel much like work.
Set aside a few minutes today and really think about your job. What do you love about it, what do you hate and what could you possible delegate to someone else? By making a few minor changes and just thinking about your job differently could turn your current job into your dream job!
