Coaching - The Passionate Pursuit Of Possibilities

Oct 7, 2007
If you hate the work that you're doing right now, you are not alone.

According to a Harris Interactive Survey...

Only 20 percent of respondents feel very passionate about their jobs
While 33 percent believe they have reached a dead end in their career
And 21 percent are eager to change careers.

According to this survey less than half of all respondents were satisfied with their present career path.

"Work is either fun or drudgery. It depends on your attitude. I like fun." - Colleen C. Barrett

In order to put 'fun' back into job satisfaction many individuals are exploring the potential of online business.

"I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen." - Frank Lloyd Wright

What do you have a passion for? Someone once told me, "Enjoy what you do and you'll never have to work another day in your life." Passion creates the best platform for the work we were destined to do.

"I believe you are your work. Don't trade the stuff of your life, time, for nothing more than dollars. That's a rotten bargain" - Rita Mae Brown

While you can find great joy in work, it is impossible to say that it will always be easy.

"I'm a great believer in luck and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it." - Thomas Jefferson

The beginning of any new career path is always the hardest. It is in those early moments of research, paperwork, and the drudgery of the development of your dream that provide the biggest obstacle to overcome. Thankfully things will get better.

"You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what you're doing is work or play." - Warren Beatty

Do you have the passion to take a good idea and do something with it? Or do you think that opportunities exist only for others?

"Success in business requires training and discipline and hard work. But if you're not frightened by these things, the opportunities are just as great today as they ever were." - David Rockefeller

Online business is often equated with home-based business. Perhaps this is a fair comparison. You see, most home-based businesses have an online presence. Many former employees discovered a problem with their job satisfaction and decided to do something about it.

Every day individuals are leaving the traditional workforce to pursue a dream, to take their passion and apply some hard work and perseverance until the idea shines.

Have you placed a dream on a shelf? Maybe it's time to dust off the idea and rediscover the passionate pursuit of possibilities.
