Passion

What’s your passion? I have heard a lot of people say to find your passion and then just do it. I think it’s what we say to our kids now a days as well. We used to be told that we can do anything we want to do. I don’t know maybe it’s just me.

What stops you from just doing your passion?

I think it’s all the obstacles that we place in front of ourselves.

Such as…

  • Telling ourselves that we are not professionally trained to be worthy of making any money with what we are most passionate about.
  • Finding time to follow our passion long enough to make some money. After all it takes time to make money to live and raise a family, how can there be any time left for MY passion.
  • What about the behind the scenes side of things? Let’s say you enjoy creating recipes, but cannot figure out how to work behind the scenes in the blogging world to get them out there in order to try to make a buck or two with it.
  • Trying to measure up to someone else’s expectation of what you are to do with your life.

It’s never as easy as just doing it, is it?

First, you have to dive into what your true passion is in life by doing some soul searching and leaving the nay sayers where they belong – behind you! Think back as to what you loved to play as a child and what was most important to you before you had others trying to influence you towards their expectations.

Secondly, you have to find the time, energy, resources, support, and money to move forward with following your passion.

We all have a purpose in this life and if we tune into what that purpose is with a little guidance then maybe we could find our passion, cultivate it, and make it what we do for a living.

I’m grateful that I know my passions.

Have you found a way around and through the obstacles to have followed your passion?

Thanks for listening!
