People have to want to be passionate before you can help them ignite passion. Here are 4 ways you can help ignite that passionate spark in others:
The power of listening is SO underrated! I bang on about genuine listening a lot!
Sometimes the simple act of listening can generate passion through the knowing that someone is interested in what they say. Talking about things that are important to you get you more and more excited and inspired – it is so much better if you have someone who listens to you!
Personally, I love nothing better than when someone is talking about what they love and their eyes get that twinkle and after a couple of minutes they radiate their passion!
Help them succeed
Once you know what the persons interests and loves are (through listening) think about where you can help them succeed. Is it connecting them to someone who you know who has similar passions? Can you help them with their resume/blog/goal setting? There are so many way that we can contribute and add value to others lives!
Be a role model for passion
Sometimes the simple act of being passionate is enough to generate passion in another person. They will be drawn to you and you can help them through the act of listening and then helping them succeed. Be someone worth emulating!
