It's not enough to 'want' to succeed. It's not enough to pour money into your passion. It's not enough to pay for an ad in your local yellow pages, or online, or in Facebook.
You need purpose.
The desire to make a lot of money is not purpose. The desire to be successful in a career is not purpose. The satisfaction of a job well done is not purpose.
Not so long ago, I was part of a CEO group in my hometown of Rochester, NY. The group met monthly. We had a faciliator, who I have written about many times (thank you, Bruce), and who continues to guide me in my business endeavors. We also had guest speakers.
"You must be willing to support something bigger than you," our guest speakers said, one and all. They may not have said it just that way, but as we 8 - 10 people sitting around a boardroom table would learn, to build a business and make a success of it, there must be a purpose bigger than... money, passion, even people. Without that purpose... you may build your bank account and create buzz and make a good go of it, but, you will limp along wondering what's next, and slip into ordinary, over time.
