I just came across another terrific article from Inc.com. They always have good combos of business, marketing, and uplifting short reads that are clickbait worthy.
They often talk about Warren Buffett (who just turned 92) and what separates highly successful people from everyone else.
It’s something that you probably already know. And it’s definitely something that’s at the core of Soulful Marketing — His classic quote says it all:
“In the world of business, the people who are most successful are those who are doing what they love.” ~Warren Buffett
The big question for you is — “Are you doing what you LOVE for Income?”
And if you’re not doing what you love, what needs to change so you can?
I did some research to find out how loving what you do will create more success, and I wasn’t surprised. This is one of the core principles of soulful marketing—love what you do and share it with the world. (And I also know you may do one thing for income that you may not truly love. Yet, it fuels your passion or hobby, and that’s awesome too.)
Doing work that you love (Honestly, I don’t call it “work” anymore because I love it and it doesn’t “feel” like work anymore.) will fuel your motivation, creativity, satisfaction, stamina, and resilience.
When you are in alignment with your purpose – It will be a powerful catalyst for achieving your definition of success.
Specifically it will give you:
- Passion and Motivation: When you love what you do, you are naturally more motivated and enthusiastic about your work. This passion can drive you to put in the extra effort and time required to excel and increase your chances of success.
- Resilience: Loving your work can help you better cope with setbacks and failures. You are more likely to persevere through tough times because your passion acts as a source of resilience. Your ability to bounce back is crucial for long-term success.
- Continuous Learning & Professional Growth: (My personal favorite!) When you love your work, it creates a strong desire to learn and grow in your business. You’re more likely to seek out new knowledge, skills, and opportunities for self-improvement, which can contribute to success over time. Pursuing work you love often leads to personal growth and self-discovery. As you overcome challenges and push your boundaries, you develop valuable life skills that contribute to your overall success and well-roundedness.
- Innovation and Creativity: Passion for your work can spark creativity and innovation. When you are deeply engaged in what you do, you are more likely to come up with new ideas, solutions, and approaches, which can set you apart from others in your industry.
- Satisfaction: Enjoying your work leads to higher satisfaction. This can boost your overall well-being and mental health. When you’re happy and content in your career, you’re better equipped to tackle challenges and stay focused on your goals.
- Collaboration and Connection: I love being in groups of like-minded people online and offline. By building a strong network of peers and mentors, it can open up opportunities, provide you with valuable insights, and even accelerate your path to success.
- Longevity: When you love your work, you are more likely to stay committed to your career for the long term. Creating a successful business often requires consistent effort over many years, and a genuine love for your work can help you stay engaged and dedicated throughout your journey. Even as your passion shifts and changes.
- Work-Life Balance: When your work aligns with your passions, it can be easier to maintain a healthy work-life balance. You’re less likely to feel overwhelmed by work-related stress because you derive fulfillment from your career.
- Financial Success: Your success isn’t solely measured by financial wealth. And I found when you’re more passionate about your work it will help lead to incredible financial success. When you combine dedication, expertise, and inspiration, it will often result in higher earnings and more financial stability.
It’s time to give yourself permission to do what you love and love what you do. (And if you already have – YAY!) Even if it’s a small step. Take it today. You’re only on this planet for a short time. Take advantage of your natural talents and intuition.
The world needs you and your gifts. And I’m more than happy to be your biggest cheerleader. 🙂 Share with me where you are on your path. And remember, I’m always here with my hands at your back.
Quote I’m Pondering:
Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich. ~ Lao Tzu

More Photos From Our Trip To Portland & Emma of course!
Emma just loves to sit on the couch like a person, isn’t that what all small dogs do?!
I just love that drive on I-5 north – Mt. Shasta just looks so mighty from the highway and with all the clouds and some snow too.
When we were in Portland we went downtown to the OMSI – Oregon Museum of Science & Industry. They had a submarine you could tour and the added view of the city from the Williamette River.
Pittock Mansion – (That’s me, Alice and our son Garrett in front of the house.) Built in 1914 by Henry Pittock a London publisher and business tycoon. It was way before it’s time with a central vacuum system, intercoms, indirect lighting, an elevator, and a walk in frig. Plus, it’s built on a hill and has the most beautiful views of the city of Portland.
