Not always. Sorry for starting with a negative here, but what I mean is that JUST because younhave passion doesn’t mean you will see fantastic success in every little thing you do. Failure happens.
But this is when passion is even more crucial.
When you have passion, you will find success within each failure. Passion means that you want something to be successful so bad that you are willing to take chances and to fail as many times as it takes to eventually succeed!
Coworker keeps blocking a social media project you bring to the table? Find out what they see as valuable and show them how social media enhances it. Give them a recent case study.
Know you need video to enhance you social media program but itnis difficult to get good stories? Start sharing great videos from like organizations with programs staff. They will start wanting YOUR organization to make videos like that.
Frustrated with day in and day out of no mentions, no likes or comments on Facebook, and no blog comments? Keep pushing. People are reading. People just want to get used to your organization’s presence. Think outside the box on how you can get people to engage. Maybe it’ll take some offline encouragement.
Passion for a successful social media program. Passion for talking with people who care about your cause. And, passion for tsking that engaged person to the n3xt level of involvement with your organization will get you through.
Never lose passion.
Once you lose that passion, people notice. But, if you get knocked down and then pop right back up, people notice that even more.
