"Passion to Learn"
Your Success Thought for the Week of August 8, 2007

One of the most rewarding professional endeavors I undertake is a 'Client Appreciation' celebration. It is a true delight for me to see so many clients all in one place. These are individuals who commit themselves daily to being a little (or a lot) better tomorrow than they were yesterday.

Watching them interact, I couldn't help but ask myself "What separates these folks from the rest?" The first answers were clear. There was an undeniable 'aliveness.' The laughter was loud, genuine, and bold. The conversations were gregarious yet sincere.

My clients were clearly interested in what one another was saying. Other traits that stood out: a passion to learn and thus to live, work, and play at life to the fullest.

It is a special type of individual who seeks out an executive coach. This individual is confident, relishes change, is open to varying perspectives, and has a strong passion to learn. The most brilliant among us has the most to learn. Think of it: how does a person become brilliant in the first place?

Brilliant people become that way through a sheer passion to examine their lives and expand their thinking. The more they know, the more doors open to them for more learning which then allows them to become even more brilliant. How exhilarating!

Individuals who seek executive coaching are in leadership positions. They realize that in their words and actions they influence others. They care enough to take the helm when it would be much easier (thought not an option) to sit back and wait. They look for ways to make a difference, large or small. They believe in themselves enough to know that their opinion matters.

There are others out there who are satisfied with the status quo - considering themselves already an expert with no room for exploration or growth. They create symmetry for the rest of us. I am beyond lucky to work with individuals who are willing to commit their time, brilliance, and hearts into making their world (and thus, our world) a better place.

This week look around you. In what areas of your life do you have a passion to learn? How does your passion to expand your knowledge-base affect those whom you influence? Are they more motivated, enlightened, curious? Acknowledge yourself for making this difference in their lives as well as your own.

In all ways imaginable, celebrate your passion to learn this week. Enjoy your discoveries and have a great week!
