Following your heart and true passion creates an environment composed of enjoyment, contentment and seemingly perpetual energy reserves from which you can apply to your actions and efforts. Many people have the misconception that fun cannot be applied to the workspace or hinders the professionalism of your actions. I really don’t understand this logic. If you are having fun, and hence enjoying what you are doing, without the resistance of going against what drives you as an individual your efforts become far more effective and the energy required to do so is minimalized. This is critical for me, especially with my entrepreneurial endeavors as the physical, mental and emotional energy required to push through the difficult times can be extremely taxing on the body and mind. In my honest opinion, if you aren’t being true to yourself and following your passion it is practically impossible to succeed in the long-term to the best of your ability.
