Stop Chasing the Money & Start Chasing the Passion

“Stop Chasing the Money and Start Chasing the Passion.”  I honestly can’t remember who said this originally, but this quote resonates with me personally.  I have a full-time job that I love, and put many hours into, because I love it.  I also write this blog to help all of you find your climb to success.  I don’t do this for the money, I do this because of the passion.  I love to help people, and being able to write and have all of you out there read it also gives me a creative outlet.  If what I write here helps one of you to find what you want in life and go get it, then I truly have accomplished what I set out to do.

Finding your passion, rather than just working for the dollars allows you to work harder than ever, and to have a true sense of accomplishment as you complete even the smallest tasks, because these goals contribute to you hitting your overall goals.  If you find something that makes you truly happy and fulfilled, find a career that revolves around that, dedicate yourself to it whether full-time or on the side, and I promise it will be much easier to put the hours into this passion, than it is to put your hours into just earning a paycheck.

If you enjoy this content, I hope you share this with those around you so that I can help as many people as possible.  If you have comments you’d like to share, or would like to put your own spin on these ideas, you can contact me at alan@climbtosuccess.ca

Until Next Time,

Don’t be afraid to give up the good.

“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” These wise words were once spoken by Thomas Jefferson. What does this really mean though?

In order to achieve great things in your life, you may have to give up the good, stable things you have now. Entrepreneurs who chase their wild dreams leave their stable jobs everyday, this is a great example of giving up something good to go for something great.

If you stay in the same old comfortable good place you’ve been at in life, the odds of you ever achieving something truly great are quite low. This is not because you can’t do great things by doing the good things you do, but because you’re most likely limited in some way in what you currently do. You’re learning and developing skills and working hard, life is good, but going from here to doing some great all of a sudden isn’t generally coincidental. You generally have to give up the good things you do to make the time to chase the great dream, to accomplish that great thing you hope to accomplish.

Until Next Time,

Quote of the Day

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is courage to continue that counts.”

What does today’s quote mean? It means that no matter how well things are going, or how poorly they are going, the only thing that matters is that you keep going. You will not continue to succeed from either of these situations if you give up. Giving up is never the best option. Find that thing that keeps you going, that thing that makes you want to succeed, and use that motivation to keep going. To keep pushing forward, and to continue your Climb to Success.

Quote of the Day

“Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people” – Steve Jobs

This quote really does ring true in any business venture. No one person can have a thriving business alone, it takes a team. Much like how a surgeon can’t operate alone, they need an anesthesiologist, nurses, assisting surgeons, etc. A business has so many departments and things going on, that no one person can be the best at all of this. If you harness the individual strengths and skills of a team of people though, you stand a greater chance of being successful.
