King Passion

What makes a successful entrepreneur successful? There are many ingredients that go into the final recipe of success but they all arise from one source: Passion.

While in the process of starting to blog, I did some quick research on blogging and what distinguishes top bloggers from the rest. I came across Yaro Starak’s blog Entrepreneur’s Journey and a 4-part series on professional blogging. Yaro states the case of Darren Rowse, a successful professional blogger:

It’s partly his fault that so many people currently do or are attempting to make money from blogging. If it wasn’t for events like this slashdot news post in July 05 about Darren earning between $10,000 and $20,000 per month from blogging, and the countless articles, blog posts and offline newspaper features on Darren’s success, not quite as many would know that this whole professional blogging thing was possible.

What Does Darren Have That You Don’t?

Motivated Like Your Life Depended On It

Have you ever noticed how many Russian tennis players dominate the top rankings? As I type this there are 12 Russian women in the official WTA world rankings top 50.

It’s a widely held hypothesis in the tennis world that the Russians are doing so well presently – as opposed to past tennis powerhouses like America, Australia and the origin of tennis, England, who struggle to produce grand slam stars like in previous years – because Russians want it more.

Tennis in Russia isn’t just a sport, it’s a ticket to a better life. In Australia and the USA if your tennis career doesn’t work out your lifestyle remains pretty good, hence the burning desire – the motivation – isn’t there. To Russians, every tournament and every training session is taken extremely seriously – you can see the hunger in the player’s eyes and attitudes.

Darren Rowse in a way is like a Russian tennis player. In his previous life before blogging he earned standard salaries, did jobs that involved manual labor and based on the variety of jobs he had (see this post he made for examples), faced difficulty finding an occupation he enjoyed that brought in much money.

Once Darren’s blogging started to take off you can imagine that he was blown away by the potential and knuckled down hard, looking at blogging as a ticket to a better life because he enjoyed it and because the income potential was there. Not many people would have invested the energy that Darren did and still does, hence he is one of the rare cases of solo-blogging success on a big scale.

That’s why they say: Follow your passions and you will never regret it!
