More often than not, people ignore their true passion because they think it is worthless. With an entire society and advertising industry designed around making you feel insecure, it is no wonder so many people struggle to find what truly interests them in life. Taking this into consideration, take a moment to ask yourself what you really want to do. Seriously, go ahead and do it.
Anything? Sometimes figuring out what you love can be a challenge. For others they already know. Either way, figuring out how to harness the incredible potential and power that comes with doing what you love is the key to success. Let’s review three main points you can take with you as you build something far greater then anything you can buy, determination.
Doing what you love, and making a successful business out of it, requires freedom. While freedom can be considered in terms of money, what we mean is internal freedom. It is common for people to judge their personal interests. As a result, the biggest critic in your entire life is going to be yourself. It is the nagging voice that says everything you want out of life is impossible. Don’t worry, every person who has ever done something worthwhile has come against this judgment. Instead of giving in, they believed in what they were doing and felt the freedom and clarity that comes from doing what you love.
Usually we have to manufacture interest or passion in our jobs. This is because we do not find our work inherently interesting. True passion comes when you stop living a lie and put yourself out there. Building your own business will require that passion. From long nights to weeks without a pay-check, building a business requires dedication and foresight that extends months and years down the line. However, as most people can attest, it is among the most rewarding and exciting things they have ever done. Find and experience that passion and it will take you far.
With freedom and passion comes focus. Focus is the ability to look at the problems you see facing your business and taking the time to plan for them accordingly. It is the energy to do the most boring parts of your job because there is so much more that is worthwhile. Find your focus when you give yourself permission to do what you love, and you will never lose it.
