Successful people all have one thing in common: they like what they do. Have you ever heard of a thriving business owner grumble that he hates coming to work every day? Of course not; he's tapped into his passion and drive. Having a passion for your work not only makes you more productive, but your positive feelings rub off on your colleagues, customers, family, and friends. This is especially true if you start your own business.

Being an entrepreneur is not easy, as we have said. Nor is it a nine-to-five job. The only way you can put in the time, effort, and dedication it takes is to really love the job. So what if you have no idea what it is you love to do?

What if you had no clue where your passion lies? It's not always so easy to figure it out; it can take time and a lot of patience, as well as trial and error. Ask yourself how you spend your time off: What hobbies do you have? Where do you go? Do you like working and interacting with people all the time, or do you prefer honing in on a specific project and solving problems on your own?

Sometimes, it helps to figure out what you don't like doing first; that can eventually lead you to what you do like. We are very fortunate to be able to do what we love every day, and do it alongside the people we care about most. The days fly by, the work is incredibly rewarding, and most of all, it's fun.
