Do People Feel Your Passion For Your Business?

passionAfter a recent talk, one of the audience members came up to me and said, “Your passion in your delivery from the stage, it was, I mean, I felt it!”

What the person does not know is the amount of practice hours that went into the delivery of the talk! The passion was real and there right where it needed to be.

How about you in your business? Are your customers able to feel your passion for what you do? Do people comment to you on how passionate you are?

Your passion for what you do can absolutely be felt by others. It definitely becomes part of the reason people buy from you and return to buy from you. This transcends a product or a service based business. Your passion may be felt in either case by your clients, customers and potential clients and customers.

How do you stay passionate if you are feeling a bit less passionate than before?

Take a look at what you are doing now compared to what you were doing when you were most passionate. If the more enjoyable activities are seeing less of your time, for example you are strategizing and managing the business more and you find these areas to be laborious, then switch back to spending more of your time doing the activities you find to be enjoyable. You will still need to run the business. It just does not have to run you.

There are situations where boredom begins to settle in. The business has started to become consistent. You have assembled a great team. Now you feel a bit bored.

One way to snap out of this feeling is to learn something new.  For example: maybe you always wanted to write. You just never took the time. Why not begin a newsletter or a blog for your business and write the content yourself?

Another example would be to grow your business into other geographical areas or Internationally. When you review your original goals and plans as you are creating your new plans do not be shocked to find your passion returning as strong as ever.

The point is do not ignore the signs of losing your passion. It is difficult to describe, yet often those around you probably noticed a change in you even before you recognized the change yourself.
