Without Passion, Why Bother?

Mortgage and Lending with Agent Mastermind NMLS # 160983

If you’re not hungry, why do you wake up in the morning? If you are not doing something you absolutely love then why do it?

Even though the days may seem to drag on when you’re working at a job that you hate, we all know that life is short. Do you really want to spend your life waiting to get excited? I mean, those once in a lifetime vacations are few and far between. And you can’t hang all of your hopes and dreams on the weekend. You must do something in your daily life that brings you joy and satisfaction.

Fortunately, you’re working in one of the greatest industries ever. In real estate, you’ve actually helping people step into their dreams. Whether you’re helping them to buy their starter home, or making it possible for them to buy a vacation home in some beautiful destination– you’re helping people live their dreams. Are you livingyour dream?

Sometimes, the best way to find passion is through deciding what you love to do within the real estate industry. Are you passionate about helping first-time homebuyers, for example? Well, why are you doing everything else? Get rid of (or delegate) all the stuff you hate, and laser focus on exactly what you love to do.

In this post, I thought I’d share some of my favorite ideas about passion. Let’s ignite that passion within you and turn 2016 into the year you set the world on fire.

Pursue what you’re passionate about always.


Do it with passion or not at all. -Unknown

It can’t be said enough. If you’re not excited about doing something in your life, either find a way to get excited about it or get rid of it altogether.

Hire a team of passionate individuals to help you.


Passion is so key in leading and creating excellence that I will hire passion over education or talent every time. -Dave Ramsey

You need people around you who love what they do as well. We’re not all going to succeed in bookkeeping or office management. If that’s not your thing, then don’t force it– hire it.

Let your passion guide you to your best pathway.


Passion is the genesis of genius. -Tony Robbins

You may not realize this, but passion is a great compass. In business, it never leads you wrong. The caveat is that you have to be willing to follow through with hard work.

Find the customers who love you and let them market for you.


One person with passion is better than forty people merely interested. -E. M. Forster

We’re all about getting referrals, and there’s no better marketer than a happy customer. Customers can be passionate, too. Find those customers who love what you did for them and ask for their referrals and get a testimonial to place on your site, too.

Don’t fill your hours just working.


Chase your passion, not your pension. -Denis Waitley

Fill your hours loving your work. If you don’t love what you do, then do something else.

The most successful folks have passion.


You never achieve success unless you like what you are doing. -Dale Carnegie

If you want to be on top, you’ve got to find something about the industry that you’re passionate about. That may be connecting customers to the right mortgage solution or finding the perfect home. Whatever it is, find your niche and love it.

Always keep your goals in mind.


Renew your passions daily. -Terri Guillemets

Don’t lose sight of what you do and why you do it. I recommend having a list of goals (achievable outcomes) in front of you on a daily basis. Tie these goals on the things you’re most passionate about. That way, you can know exactly where you’re headed, and it’s always towards something that you love.

Final Thoughts

Let’s make 2016 the best year yet. Identify what makes you want to wake up in the morning and then use that fuel to build a business and life that you’ve always wanted. Good luck!
