Wise Bits from the #BakerPreneur: Operating in Your Passion

In the last blog, we spent some time talking about not asking permission to do what you want in life. Today let’s continue on that same wavelength and discuss operating in one’s passion. Tony Robbins once said, “Passion is the genesis of genius.” It was Thomas Edison’s passion that motivated him to continue to invent despite his many failures. Passion is the key to unlocking your full potential.

Operating in your passion simply means, that every day you should be doing something that brings you joy. We have often heard the saying, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life,” but how many of us actually follow that advice. As children, we are taught that when we grow up our goal is to find a decent job with benefits. A job that is safe and stable. However, often we get stuck in this life of status quo. We shouldn’t allow ourselves to get stuck in a stable job that doesn’t add to our happiness. That sense of convenience it provides is what keeps people from operating in their passion. It’s what causes you to lose your will to pursue that dream job or travel the world.

However, when you operate in your passion you will find the courage to follow all of your dreams. We here at CaLM encourage you to make a list of everything you want to accomplish in life. Now take the necessary steps to make those dreams come true. The fulfillment you will experience will be life changing. That investment you made in yourself is one the most sound investments you will ever make. Operating in your passion is one decision in life you will never regret
