Blog Post #4 Having Passion vs Showing Passion

In the book 'Think and Grow Rich' by Napoleon Hill he begins a good amount of his sentences with "The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is...". This statement stuck with me and ever since I read it I have been thinking of my own spin off of it. So, here it is.

The difference between successful and unsuccessful people is; successful people have passion and they are not afraid to make it known to anyone. Passion expressed outwardly is enthusiasm, unfortunately this enthusiasm can come off as strange to others at first which may cause the 'passion haver' to second guess themselves. Second guessing may lead to a cut off of enthusiasm, no enthusiasm means no passion. This happens all too often and may cause people to keep their passions locked inside. For those people reading this who are keeping their passions inside just remember, fear is a mile high and paper thin, go straight through your problems it's quicker that way.

Successful people act on their passions. Anyone can be passionate about something but acting on them is a completely different ball game. Passionate people attract passionate people. If there is anything I have learned in the past four months is that community is everything. If you want to see your future, look at your friends.
