How To Turn Your Passion Into Your Business is designed for entrepreneurs, those individuals whose expectations and standards are non-negotiable. There are principles and strategies that you must understand and master to take your business to the next level.
This course is about breakthroughs. It's about giving you these moments in time when something happens, a decision, an insight, a truth or an understanding when you can finally discover what is your true passion. We then work with you to help you to gain the confidence and belief that you can turn this passion into a business. And a successful business at that.
This course will guide you to create a shift in your beliefs, perception and standards. Breakthroughs happen when something inside you makes you find a new skill or a new way to do something. You break out of your conditioning and the limitations of your environment to create greater performance, greater results and greater fulfillment. As a result, you have more to contribute. What happens next is a radical, surreal and massive improvement in the quality of your life for you, other people and at times, even the world.
Passion is something that will stem from your beliefs. It is enhanced by your skills and sustained by the value that you are able to provide. So if passion stems from beliefs how are our beliefs formed?
Many of us have negative beliefs associated to wealth and these beliefs stem from some of our experiences in the past.
There can be a lot of sensitivity around finances and if the negative belief is not healed and changed, it is impossible to gain financial security and ultimately become financially free.So if Passion is something that will stem from your beliefs and we want to turn our passion into our business, then it makes sense that we should take a closer look at our beliefs around money and finances.
Why do we want what we want? Why do we do what we do? How is it that one person will sacrifice his own life for another, while another will murder a stranger for sheer pleasure?
What are the factors that drive, contour and influence all of our emotions, what we do, the qualities of our life, and ultimately, our destinies?
It is true that each human being is unique. It is also true that we also share a nervous systems that performs in the same way.
I learned form Tony that there are also six fundamental needs that everyone has in common, and all behavior is simply an attempt to meet those six needs.
There are three forces in the world that determine how you feel and together, these forces are called the Triad. The Triad consists of your Physiology, Language and Focus
Together, these three patterns create any—and every—emotional state.
When we understand how these three forces play out in our lives we will then be able to find value and insight in our current job or career.
If you want to turn your passion into your business, you need to focus on it. This is how you get a clear vision of what you want. If you focus on what you DON'T want, you are going to get more of that.
1. Where focus goes, energy flows.
2. Get a Massive Action Plan
3. Resolve Inner Conflicts
Once you define the progress you want to make, you need an effective and efficient game plan to achieve it. In order to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be, you need a proven map, an effective mentor, and training to drive you to take action.
We are now on lecture six and already some students will be taking massive action and digging into the exercises. They will be all fired up to achieve their goals. They are getting stuck into the vision and goal of creating a passion out of their business.
And there will be some others who will never do anything...:)
So many people breakthrough, take action and get their goals. Why are the others not following through? We cover this and more lecture six.
So whats the holy grail of someone taking action or not?
When you absolutely believe that when I do this, I am going to get that result and that result is going to change my life, then you'll do it.
When you absolutely think its not going to work, then you are never going to do it.
So if its a must for you, then you must make it work.
This lecture brings some key insights on how we can gain the certainty that we need in order to take action.
We all like to feel that we matter and have some level of importance. And the great thing is that we can get this feeling by giving that feeling to others. Whatever emotion you want to feel in your life, give it to someone else and you will feel it too.
When you turn your passion into your business, when you find a mission that resonates with your beliefs and is supported by your skills, your ability to produce results will only deepen your interest in the field. That will ignite a hunger within you to want to advance your business and share this new found passion with others.
"It's not what's happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become. Rather, it's your decisions about what to focus on, what things mean to you, and what you're going to do about them that will determine your ultimate destiny” Anthony Robbins
People driven by positive emotional motivation do so because of their desire to share: something in their life, whether it be a person, place, product or event; impacted them in such a great way that they experienced the amazing benefits of it firsthand
People driven by negative motivation do so because of their desire to create change. Whatever happened to them felt so difficult, unjust or limiting that they want to stop others from having to experience it.
Todays lecture includes an exercise to help you to understand what drives you in your life and what is the basis of your passion that you want to turn into your business.
Discovering your passion requires getting creative in how you connect past emotional experiences with present day interests. This kind of creativity is something we all have inside us and is best described by Steve Jobs:
“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they've had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people.” Steve Jobs
In todays exercise you will be asked to set aside an hour to reflect on your past experiences and questions will be provided to help you to connect with the people, places and events that have had the most impact on your life.
Once you've identified what fires you up, the final step is to translate it into a career path. Todays lecture will outline the first of three stages of activation that will help you enhance the passion you have determined or pursue a new passion.
Now our goal is for you to have a SUCCESSFUL business, that you turn your passion into a business that brings financial security and freedom where you have expanded your life to such an extent that you can now turn around and help someone else.
We now understand that in order to really and truly be successful at turning your passion into your business, we need to have a clear and compelling vision and to persevere in our chosen strategy over and over again until we get to our goal. And that can take a long time, in fact it's very likely it will take longer than you expect or hope. So as we take on this challenge, knowing that it is going to be a long term commitment we need to make sure that we are ready to take this on, really for the long haul..the long game
In order to win this game there are 7 areas in your life that you NEED to master to stay on track, to keep you in the right mindset to pursue this goal. Please remember that your actual enterprise or business is only one of them. You need to take a holistic approach to your life so that everything is in balance. This in turn sets you up for success in your business.

I was born in Co. Roscommon, Ireland and I moved to the USA in 2001. I branched into the healthcare information technology realm having worked as a radiographer in Ireland and in England. Both careers afforded me many amazing opportunities for growth and learning and my life has always been filled with a sense of gratitude for all the blessings that I have received in my life.
And yet I had this pervasive feeling that something was missing in my life. As the years progressed, this sense of a lack of fulfillment got more and more intense for me. And a little over eight years ago I took the first tangible steps to bring fulfillment into my life.
You see, my passion is music, specifically a rare style of Irish music called The East Galway Irish Music Tradition. I was taught by a musical legend by the name of Eddie Kelly and I spent many hours with he and my dad learning and playing music. Looking back on those occasions with these two gentlemen, they have always felt to be the most grounded, genuine and authentic times of my life. And I have had always felt this pull to keep that amore alive.
I am now one of only six fiddle-players worldwide that plays this particular style which means that the music tradition is in danger of dying out. My passion is to keep this tradition alive, to teach this music style to anyone who wants to learn it and to preserve the music and compositions of Eddie Kelly.
And it's more than just the music, it's the outlook and perspective of that time. It's the simplicity where two men gained ultimate fulfillment in their lives by giving to others, by giving to me.
For the past few years as I have continued to turn my passion into my business I have learned so much. The most important lesson that I have learned is that all business is 80% psychology and 20% mechanics. I discovered that once I got right in my head, it was only then that I began to make real progress in my business. I gained momentum and started taking my business to the next level.
When you take your dreams and you make them a reality, you abide by a formula for success which is called the science of achievement.
But a sense of fulfillment is an art and for each person it is as different as is the fingerprint. It's something that we have to learn for ourselves and something that requires work. We should take this on because success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.
And thats why I created this course.
