“Do what you love and you never work a day in your life” is probably one of the best career-related quotes. It is a dream for many, a reality for few, to make money by doing the things that you love and are good at. Imagine waking up every morning, excited to jump out of bed and greet the day ahead.
We’re not meant to be stuck at soul-sucking jobs that we hate. That’s not living. That’s surviving. That’s tolerating suffering. We are meant to use our gifts and skills and share them with the world. Whatever your passion is, there is a way to make it a part of your life.
Don’t get stuck at your job. Try these tips for turning your passion into your paycheck and ultimately living the life of your dreams:
1. Show People What You Can Do:
Stop being quiet about your passion, you need to start talking about it, sharing it as much as you can, to as many people as possible. People won’t know that you have a passion, skills, and talents until they see, hear or find out about it.
2. Develop Multiple Streams Of Income:
Creating multiple revenue streams allows you to make money without always having to be present or in a one-on-one setting. It gives you the ability to not only serve more clients without having to be present but also the opportunity to make money while you sleep.
3. Set Financial Goals And Write Them Down:
Gaining clarity on what you want to accomplish is a HUGE step in achieving it. Spend a few minutes writing down your financial and life goals. Then, set a deadline to achieve it.
4. Be Patient:
It might take time, so always be patient. I know first hand how difficult this part can be. It might take 1, 2 or 3 years before you can quit your day job or before you are ready to launch your business, but be patient, keep going and make your goals visual so that you always know what you are working towards.
