Excitement drives success.
Getting excited is no guarantee, of course, but when was the last time you met a bored, unengaged, and successful person? And why would you want to succeed at something boring, anyway?
What are you excited about? You should be able to name your special thing in just one or two words—maybe it’s important deal, or moving offices. Or maybe it’s some aspect of your work, like marketing strategy or website design. It could even be another person, like new sales rep. It doesn’t have to be anything that interests anybody else, as long as it works for you. But if you don’t know what excites you, there’s a good chance you’re not really engaged.
If you can’t find anything exciting about your work, then make something.
The positive nature of finding your passion feeds into and supports other aspects of your business that may not be as interesting. Building a company is a multifaceted, multistep process—seeing your progress can be fun all by itself. But one of those facets has to draw you in, light you up. Go find it, get excited about it, and tell other people.
Then ask them—“what has you excited?”
