Pop quiz…What is worse than watching someone do their “job” who is clearly miserable? Ready for the answer? Not a whole lot! Life is too short to be miserable, so why not spend your time doing something that you are passionate about? I know that a lot of people will disagree with me, but I am convinced that misery is a decision. Does doing a job that you are passionate about sound far fetched and unattainable to you? If so, it shouldn’t really because people do it everyday. You can be among these people, if you so choose to. Each and every person reading this right now can, and I say that without knowing anything about you. Have you honestly made the effort to pursue your passion? If so, what was the outcome? I would really like to know, so leave a note in the comments if you like.
Consider this for a moment. There is money to be made in EVERYTHING, so I am confident that you can pursue your passion and gain satisfaction and a revenue stream or two. I love it when people are genuinely excited about something because its enjoyable to see authentic joy on someone’s face. Wouldn’t you agree? People are naturally attracted to others who have a clear passion and give off a positive vibe. It is amazing to think about some of the people that I have connected with since I started the podcast and this blog.
Check out this quote from Steve Jobs:
“I’m convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”
If you are not passionate about what you do for a living, you will not have the will to persevere when times get tough. This is exactly why so many people quit their jobs, become victims of circumstance and get very burned out, in general. Their heart is not in what they are doing, so when they receive a beating from life they stay down willingly. They accept defeat with open arms and a warm embrace. I personally have no interest in going out this way, so I don’t.
The real magic happens when you combine your unwavering passion with helping others enjoy the same thing. Our passions generally make experts out of us because we have the desire to continuously learn. Our skill level increases as another wonderful byproduct of our passion too. Share your passion with the world by putting all of your energy, time and resources into it. You will start to enjoy your life each and everyday and your will inspire so many others along the way. When you actually start making money from this it feels too easy to be “real.”[Tweet “The real magic happens when you combine your unwavering passion with helping others enjoy the same thing.”]
