What does it mean to be living your life on fire? It conjures up many different images. A comet streaking through the sky. A tiny spark growing into a roaring blaze, spreading to everything it touches. A person filled with passion, doing the thing they love. That’s what fire is all about: passion. Following your dreams and living your life to the fullest. So what does living your life on fire mean to YOU?
Everyone has a passion. But that doesn’t mean that everyone has something that drives them. Somewhere along the way, people forget about their passions and get caught in the tedium of everyday life. They convince themselves that they’re content with simply living, rather than excelling. If they do keep aware of their passions, they’re relegated to weekend hobbies that offer a brief respite from the regular 9 to 5 job.
As an entrepreneur, you have a different take on things. You’re following your passion: you started your own business. Rather than being content with daydreaming, you’re working hard to make your dreams come true. But in order to succeed, you need to sustain your passion. You need to make sure you’re living your life on fire every day.
So think about it. What does it mean to you to live your life on fire? What is your passion? What is it that made you want to start your own business? And what is it that made you want to start THIS business, instead of something else? You had a million different options. What made this one so special? If you lose sight of the thing that drives you, then this job will be no different from the drudgery of any other.
Living your life on fire isn’t just about the job you do, either. What are your other passions? What do you want out of life, both professionally and personally? What do you want to do, and how do you want to feel? These are the things you need to focus on when you’re striving for success.
Living your life on fire is a choice that you make. And it’s a choice you keep making every day. It takes hard work, and the road can be rough at times. But in the end, it’s worth it. Not just monetarily. The money will come, sure, but if you break your back doing something you hate just so that you can get rich, then aren’t you wasting your life?
If you’re going to work towards money and success, you should at least work at something you love. After all, the journey is just as important as the destination. So what’s your journey going to be like, as you live your life on fire?
