If you are reading this article, you belong to the lucky 52.4% of the world population with internet access. This means that you have access to the largest library of knowledge ever for the lowest price. in history. Knowledge is power. My question is, are you using it ?
Do you feel excited to start your day when your alarm goes of and do you go to bed at night completely serene and satisfied?
If the answer is no, you are not living your passion...
But what if you could enjoy yourself everyday and get paid for it ?
Get paid two or even three times what you're earning at your current job ?
This is called living from your passion and it should be everyone's goal. Our time is limited so why waste it doing something you don't absolutely love ?
Step 1: find your talent. Every single person is born with a unique talent . Some of us even have multiple talents. Ask yourself when you don't HAVE to do anything, what do you do? That's your talent !
Step 2: develop your talent to excellence. Take classes, read 1 book a week about it and keep learning until you are an expert.
Be mindful that this process can take 5 to 10 years or even longer. Don't give up and look at the big picture. What is 10 years if you can enjoy it for the rest of your life?
Step 3: Find a role model in your domain and learn everything about this person. Read their biography, study their marketing strategy and communication skills. And if possible, try to get to know them in person so you can ask them how they got where you want to be. Never envy someone who does better than you, instead admire and learn from them.
Step 4: find ways to make money from your talent and become an entrepreneur. You should be your own boss and define your own worth. You should decide everything: the days you work on, your timetable, the space where you work, the clothes you wear, the people you hire,... EVERYTHING
Step 5: be gratefull every day for everything you accomplish and enjoy your new life. Find a cause that you believe in and give something back every month.
It might cross your mind, that you couldn't earn enough money doing what you love. Reconsider. When you do what you love and you are your own boss, your work will be excellent because you will put all your energy in it and you will constantely want to improve your results. You will jump out of bed in the morning to work on that new idea you had and the adrenaline of new possibilities will keep your mind busy at night.
