Passion and Success

Published with permission
Passion is the first principle that underpins the Yes For Success Platform. Several years ago Denis Smith held a high pressure sales job, was drinking too much and suffering from depression.

His life lacked passion despite all the trimmings of a successful sales career.

Fortunately he knew 'something' was missing from his life and he went on a search to discover his passion. He quickly found photography and realised that he was somewhat of a natural with the camera. Upon uploading his photos to sites he discovered that his 'good' photos were the same as everyone else's. But he didn't want to be the same as everyone else.

So his evolving passion took him on a journey of discovery where he came across the concept of 'light drawings' through photography. With passion comes innovation and he decided to 'play' with the concept, creating surreal 'Ball of Light' images in his photographs.

Today Denis has turned his passion into a business. More importantly he is living a life full of positivity and energy. View this short video to learn more about Denis' story.

Personally I feel energised when I hear about stories such as Denis' and I thank my good friend Andrew Scott (an amateur photographer himself and a personal friend of Denis') for sharing the story with me.

How present is passion in your life?
