If You Don’t Have Passion, You Don’t Have Anything

Passion is arguably the most important aspect of success. Without it, it’s hard to argue we are delivering our absolute best.  Passion drives motivation. I define passion as the emotional connection to what it is we’re doing or committed to. It’s the heart part of the equation, not the head.

About a month ago, Will Baron the genius behind Salesman Red asked me if I’d be willing to talk about my passion and what passion means in sales and life on his podcast. I’m glad he did. It was a great podcast, and we covered a lot of ground.

I don’t usually go too personal, but in this podcast, I share a few personal stories that played a role in me doing what I’m passionate about. Will also shares some personal insight about his life that was tremendously inspiring.


One of the things we covered was, can someone be successful without passion.  I said no and argued, if you don’t have passion, stop doing what you’re doing. You’re wasting your life away.

We also have fun talking about;

  • why people get stuck dong what they don’t like to do
  • how to get unstuck
  • the role society has on us and the choices we make
  • how early in life our decisions begin to affect us
  • and more.

It was a fun podcast, Will is a great guy with tons of passion ;), and he does great interviews.
