“Follow your passion.”

It’s advice frequently given to budding entrepreneurs, new graduates, and people at all levels of their careers.

But do you really need to follow your passion?

There’s an old story about a man visiting a construction site. He approaches one worker and asks what he does there. The worker says that he lays bricks.

The man then asks the question to another person, who responds that he is building a wall.

The third person the man asks says he is building a cathedral.

All three workers are doing the same tasks, but they have different mindsets. The third person saw the value of what he was creating. That doesn’t necessarily mean he is passionate about what he’s doing, but he brought passion with him.

Bringing passion with you is a far more scalable and realistic approach. It’s not about following your passion; it’s about bringing your passion to whatever you do.

When you have a passionate mindset and talk to yourself positively, it impacts your work.

I was never passionate about speaking or writing. But as I started doing it and building a community, I realized I could bring my passion to this work.

That’s the right mindset to have. Whatever you do, bring your passion with you.

I put together a video which talks about this in more detail. Please check it out below and if you want more content like this you can subscribe to my Youtube channel.
