Doing what you're passionate has a material impact on your performance. We believe it's absolutely fundamental to business success. The more you can learn about yourself and what makes you tick, the better your ability to build something you're passionate about, which increases your chances of success.

 

This following information is sourced directly from The Winners Bible, written by Dr Kerry Spackman. We highly recommend reading this book. You can find out more here.

 

 

Introduction: 

"To help understand what makes you tick it is important to understand why certain things give you satisfaction - the underlying subcomponents that drive your passions. This is referred to as your Intrinsic Drivers, the things that naturally excite you and uniquely make you who you are.


Most people find this process unexpectedly reveals many things about themselves they weren’t consciously aware of before. As a result they’re able to make better decisions in their lives, become better aligned with their true optimal future." - Kerry Spackman, The Winners Bible

 
I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.... Unless you have a lot of passion about this, you’re not going to survive. You’re going to give it up. So you’ve got to have an idea, or a problem or a wrong that you want to right that you’re passionate about; otherwise, you’re not going to have the perseverance to stick it through.
— Steve Jobs
 
 
 

How to uncover your Intrinsic Drivers:

Step 1: List all your passions/pursuits/things you really enjoy

Step 2: For each passion, identify the Intrinsic Drivers of that passion

Step 3: Consolidate all your Drivers into a single list

Additional Step: Consider how you can incorporate your intrinsic drivers into your business

 

Example:

Step 1: List all your passions/pursuits/things you really enjoy 

1) New ideas and concepts - I can talk for hours on end about new ideas. It creates a deep sense of excitement and I completely loose track of everything else that's going on.

2) I love having deep and meaningful conversations that challenge the way people think about the world e.g. about human behaviour, social norms, the universe, beliefs, creation etc.

3) Finding answers to complex problems by thinking about them in ways that most people don't. 

4) Travelling - many of by best life experiences have been while travelling. 

5) Finance, Economics, Physics - I studied Finance and really enjoyed it
