Just watched The BRIT Awards 2012 and noticed what I noticed. Have you ever done that?
When you notice what you notice you are seeing something you haven’t seen or recognised before.
But what I noticed is what motivates me. Passion!
Passion: (from the Ancient Greek verb πάσχω (paskho) meaning to suffer) is a term applied to a very strong feeling about a person or thing. Passion is an intense emotion compelling feeling, enthusiasm, or desire for something.
By passion I mean liking, loving, feeling something so much that it makes you want to be even better. You’re so excited about that something, that you want to share it with the world.
Noel Gallagher came on stage to sing his new track called “What a life!” and over the last few weeks my boyfriend (Andy. Who is a videographer and LOVES Oasis a.k.a. The Boys) and I have been watching how he has created the video series related to the new album he is currently releasing, behind the scenes of the video’s, what cameras they are using, the story behind the videos and songs, who is helping create them, etc.
Any way, what I noticed was I was much more interested to see him perform his new song live as I knew a lot more about him, the High Flying Birds, their video, how it was made, where it was made, who was in it, where they got the extras/actors from and so on.
The passion that Noel has for what he does and how he does it is remarkable, including the passion (liking, loving, feeling) I have for what he has been doing recently.
Now, not everyone likes Noel’s music (old and/or new) but my point is by having a passion for what you do or what others do inspires me to be even better than what I currently am.
At the moment there are a lot of business struggling with getting work, keeping clients, thinking of new ideas, planning for the future, staying motivated and lots of other things that come with running a company.
Give people a reason to want to work with you! Show them the passion you have for your company, product, service and more importantly… show them you.
People buy from people.
Having passion, enthusiasm and a great interest in what you do, gives people even more confidence in you.
