Make your bliss follow you
In several of the recent books I’ve been reading, one of the messages I’ve seen repeated again and again is: “Make your bliss follow you.” It’s a point that’s made because we often hear “Follow your bliss”, but the argument is that sometimes you have to make your bliss follow you. And this makes sense because following your bliss doesn’t always lead to a successful business, but making your bliss follow you can help you focus your passion toward developing a viable business model.
When you make your bliss follow you, you channel passion into desire, and dedicate it toward doing something that allows you to embody the potential that your bliss represents. More importantly you recognize that you need to turn your passion into a tool that propels you toward achieving your success in business.
Your bliss is a motivating force, an attitude that allows you to look at the world around you and find opportunities in it that allow you to embody your bliss. Instead of trying to force your bliss into a particular shape, you make it follow you as you choose to explore opportunities that present themselves to you.
The point is that bliss is a force. Following your bliss can be useful, but making it follow you can be equally as useful in terms of helping you create a business or opportunity that better fits it. Sometimes we focus on following our bliss so much that we forget that it’s important to make our bliss follow us when it doesn’t serve us to follow our bliss. By recognizing when you need to make changes to how you let your bliss motivate you, you can control it and focus it where you need it.
