The Key to Success in the Workplace

Passion. If passion doesn’t drive you then I don’t know what will. It makes work seem like fun, your hours spent actually seem to matter and you know that you are helping an industry that you have such a love for. My teachers always told me that if you can turn your passion into your job then you are the luckiest person in the world. If you have a love for what you do every day then your work will be top notch and not only you but the company will radiate from your performance.

Everyone knows what passion is. I don’t need to describe how to attain that glowing emotional feeling when you are overly enthusiastic for something. However, I can tell you why it is so important to exude passion in the workplace. First of all, passion intensifies your focus. If you love what you are working on then you will put all your energy, love and focus into the project. And focus is huge for the outcome of a company. Additionally, people with passion raise the standards of performance in the workplace. If everyone is motivated and excited about their work then the people who aren’t passionate will stick out like a sore thumb. This will let the company weed out the people who don’t care about their work and keep the standards of the company high. Lastly, people with passion create an electric and stimulating work environment that energizes other people. Instead of snoozing off on the job, people are active and everyone is feeding off everyone else’s energy.

Passion is the key to success in the workplace no matter where you work or how tedious your job is. If you love doing your job then it never feels like you are working a day in your life. Keep the passion alive in your work and you will outshine the people who are restlessly counting down the minutes to 5 pm.
