How to get people excited about what excites you…

People get excited about what excites you.  When a keynote speaker is jacked up about a topic, it’s hard not to be jacked up as well. If your pastor is passionate about a Sunday teaching, you’re more likely to remember it and absorb that teaching.


As a marketer, small business owner, or salesperson, remember that people will listen when you’re passionate about whatever it is you do. Someone once told me, “you can’t sell it if you don’t love it.” If you truly love your product, business, website, blog, whatever, then people will be infected by your passion.

What do you stand for?

Is it love? Is it money? Is it friends? Or family? Or your country? Your faith, maybe?

What you stand for should resonate throughout your entire existence. What you stand for should begin to define you, your actions and your motives. It should help shape your goals and how you measure success.

You don’t have to stand for just one thing, by the way. It can be several things, related or not. The point is to become passionate. To find your passion. To become invested in something bigger than yourself.

 If you don’t stand for anything, then you stand for nothing. I can’t possibly imagine what it must feel like to wake up as the person who stands for nothing.

So, what do you stand for?
