What Excites You Reveals Your Calling

T. Harv Eker, in his book Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, stated that true happiness lies in the intersection of what excites you and what you do for a living.

When what you do for a living excites you, you will devote significantly more time and engage in more deliberate practice in your “work”.

Those who rise to the level of exceptional, put in more hours of practice in what they do then their competition. What fuels them is their desire to do what they do. That desire is not something that can be willed into existence. There must be some underlying why that motivates an individual to devote more time to practicing their craft. In most cases, that why is having a passion for an activity or being excited every time you engage in the activity.

Liking or loving what you do is the key.

In the book, Talent is Overrated, the author found in his extensive research that those who were the most successful in their careers, devoted many more hours to their craft than their competition. These exceptional individuals found something they liked doing and, thus, devoted more time to it. Their why was excitement. They were excited every time they practiced their craft.

So, what excites you? What makes your heart sing? What activity gets you up in the morning?

When you find the answer to that question, you will have found your true calling in life.

Don’t spend your life doing something that bores you. Find what excites you and devote your entire life to it. Happiness and success will follow.
