Find Your Passion
I knew when I took the booking what I was signing up for.
Overnight driving after a gig. 2 hours’ sleep in a hotel room before having to get to a 6am flight out. Napping on the floor during a layover. Getting held up with bumper-to-bumper traffic on the drive from the airport to the next engagement. Being delayed in traffic long enough that the hour buffer I intended to spend getting presentable at the hotel gets eaten up, meaning I have to go straight to the venue feeling grungy.
I went a whole day without eating because I knew I needed those catnaps more than I needed food.
And I love it.
What in the world could possibly be more important than sleeping and eating?
In the long term, not much.
In the short term, you sometimes sacrifice your comfort on the altar of hard work to feed the fire of your passion.
Until you find something you care about more than sleeping or eating, you’re not going to find that thing that gets you fired up.
What is it that you love so much, you’d be willing to burn the candle at both ends to see?
Answer that, and you have found your motivation.
