This is what I wrote on my bathroom mirror recently: Passion + Action = Success.
You see, I recently attended an artist conference where one of the panelists measured his success by how passionate he was about doing something. And while I generally agreed with that idea, I felt there was a missing ingredient.
There have been times in my life where I have been passionate about doing something or an idea and nothing came to fruition. It would be unwise for me to say that, that in itself was success.
I believe the missing ingredient is action. Passion without action is futile. However, an idea that is backed up with the full force of passion combined with the necessary steps that are required to get the ball rolling will turn a simple seed into a bourgeoning flower. One that smells really good to boot… One that smells of sweet success!
