Ever wondered if you could make money from your hobbies or passions? If you watch people who have gone after what they love doing, there's always one thing they all have in common:
They stayed true to who they are and are unafraid to shine.
Nothing feels better than simply being ourselves. When we tap into our authenticity, others start to take notice —because we all want to be able to do what we love.
Everyone wants to shine, but for some reason a lot of us don't like the attention or we feel bad for being good at something.
It's hard to see our passions as a way to get ahead. The most successful people in the world are those who saw opportunity — where others did not.
What are you passionate about? What do you love about it? The way you see things is different from anyone else in the world.
I am a big believer that the days of working offices are coming to an end. More and more people are finding creative ways to make a living and doing it with great success because they're tapping into the right side of the brain, where imagination lives.
When we access our creative juices, problem solving becomes a lot easier, challenges become opportunities and we become more invested in our goals.
There's no traffic along the extra mile — so how do we get there?
Persistence, passion & time management.
What do you love to do? When you feel challenged, creative, in the moment and lose track of time—what is it that you're doing? We all have talents to share with the world.
For me, it's one of my greatest passions to inspire people to live big. Inspiring others to live a healthy lifestyle is one of the greatest ways to serve the world. I can honor my passion by teaching yoga, singing to people, coaching them, inspiring them through videos and photography and recipes, or speaking at public events.
So many opportunities were able to stem from just one passion. It's the same as a company mission. What is the mission of your life — and grow opportunities from this mission.
The first step to getting more from your passions is to surround yourself with people who share similar goals. So instead of going for drinks after work or watching TV on the weekend, find a local event where you can meet new people that will inspire you to grow.
How are you spending most of your down time? Are you planting a seed once a day that will start to grow your future?
Take a guitar lesson, dance class or go rock climbing. Learn how to teach yoga, paint, write music or be inspired by poetry. By learning and surrounding yourself with new beginnings and people, you will be taking one big step towards your future.
The time will pass anyway. Might as well start something new!
Once you dive into your passions more, anything is possible. You may find four or five other activities you like to do. The Universe will support you along the way. Where do you want to go? Who do you want to be? You can have it.
So go ahead, listen to your heart and do what's best for you. The worst thing that could happen? You have a new experience and learn something new.
New experiences help us grow and find out who we are, what we like and how we want to spend our time. They also give us the courage to become the author our own life. So when and where does your journey start?
I believe in you.
