Do you love it?

It’s been crazy lately.

I’m back to putting 60+ hours a week into doing what I do.

But the secret is, I love it!

(see my facebook confession this morning)


Do you love what you do?

It’s not necessary but it does help.


If you’re not living your passion and purpose yet- i.e. you don’t love what you do.

Here are a few other hacks you can use to still do what you do with passion and, thus, create great success in it:

  • Love why you do it.
    • perhaps you don’t love exactly the work you do but you are passionate about the cause; you can use that as motivatioon fuel.
  • Love who you do it for.
    • perhaps you are working hard to create a better life for someone else; let that be the passion that drives you.
  • Love how you do it.
    • even when I was doing work I didn’t love, I loved the feeling of accomplishment that comes from doing any job well. Do that.
  • Love who you’re becoming.
    • sometimes we go through seasons of growth. Instead os asking “why is this happening to me” (victim mentality), ask “why is this happening to me” (what am I supposed to learn to be better).
