ProfitCenterCoach.com – Day 26 – Passion vs. Stress

“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion”

You just read today’s inspiration – so – now you get to decide… do you have stress or do you have passion?

Lots of people say they love what they do, but then at the same time they are super stressed out.

So which is it? Stress? Passion?

It’s probably both.  It comes down to this… you’ve got stuff you do that you don’t like and it stresses you out… that’s normal. I think when the stuff you don’t like out numbers the stuff you do like, well, that’s when the problems creep in.

That means you’ve got to evaluate what the heck you’re doing! If you started out in business because you had passion and it seemed fun, then it WAS fun, now it’s exhausting.  It’s time to go back to the drawing board!

On a different topic.  I just had to share this… it was really hot today – I think we were at 100 or really close to it. (Yes Minnesota can get to 100 in the summer!)  The entire day felt like when you open the oven door to check the chocolate chip cookies baking inside, except there were no cookies!  Just a giant poof of heat.   Well it cooled down to 90 this evening and I needed to take a stroll out to the dock to make sure everything was locked up.  OMG.  It was beautiful.  It was warm, windy, and the sun had just set.  It wasn’t pink/orange/gold… no, no, no it was blue. Everything was blue. Every shade of blue. I didn’t even take a picture. I just enjoyed it. Blue Blue Blue!

There you go. Nothing to do with stress or passion.  It was just a perfect little moment, dang it was pretty.

Now back to the topic… um… go figure out your passion/stress situation!  Find your passion by identifying what the heck is stressing you out.
