Passion is crucial to success. It's far from a modern concept — one journalist discovered it nearly a century ago when studying millionaires — but is just as relevant today.
Don't toil away at a job that leaves you stressed out and dissatisfied with life. Quitting your job for a more meaningful opportunity, if the circumstances are right, can be incredibly rewarding and pay off in the future.
And if you find a job you love that fills a need, a purpose for others, you'll be even better positioned for success. "For me, the difference between being passionate and purposeful is that purpose serves others," says Sarah Kaler, who left her high-paying corporate job and started a business that earns up to $20,000 a month. "Passion can be a little more self-serving — not that it's not beautiful and wonderful, but how you're going to build your business and create momentum and resonate with other people is when you're being of service to others."
