What is Your Passion? And How Can You Earn From It? We all love money right? I mean, without it you would struggle to eat, to clothe yourself, to provide for your family. Now, don’t get me wrong, there are far more important things than money but it does help to pay the bills. Even if you have to drag yourself out of bed every day to go to a job that you hate and have no work/life balance! A balance that you need in order to spend time with your family, friends and doing the things you love.
So, What is your passion? And how can you earn from it? I will tell you how to earn but first let’s talk about what I mean when I say passion.
Your Passion – The Things You Love Doing!
What are you passionate about? What makes you want to jump out of bed and get started? A passion can be anything, from reading to cycling. From classic cars to the latest technology.
For example, I am really passionate about football (soccer to my American friends!) and even more passionate about my team Arsenal. I love watching their games and even when they are playing badly I am still passionate about them. I love to watch as many football games as possible, I read football blogs and the first page I turn to in the newspaper is, you guessed it, the football pages!
A passion is an intense desire or enthusiasm for something, according to the dictionary. It has other meanings but this one sums it up nicely. It is also something that you enjoy doing and that is the important part when trying to earn money. Love what you do.
The Horrible Boss
According to a Gallup poll, 85% of people hate their jobs! 85%, that’s insane. Why is this? Some of the main reasons that people hate their job are
- They are underpaid for what they do.
- No real opportunity for promotion/advancement.
- Company expectations are too high
- The Boss is horrible
You know the type of Boss I mean, one that shouts at you to do a job and then shouts at you when you’ve done it because it isn’t good enough. We’ve all had that type of Boss when they expect you to give them every last drop of blood and then you get no thanks for it! Who wants to work for that on low pay?!
What’s this got to do with passion? Well, if you are working in a job that you hate or for a Boss that you despise then you will slowly start to lose all your passion and the things you loved to do fall by the wayside. I know, it happened to me. But I slowly dragged myself out of it because I started to do something I love. Yes, I still work in my job that I hate, but I am doing something about it. I am following one of my passions and using it to help me earn money.
The dream? To quit my job and focus on my passion. Now that would truly be something. Waking up each morning knowing that you will be working on something you love. Ask yourself what your passion is, what do you love doing in your spare time and could you make money from it.
Your Passion, Your Niche, Your Business
So, you have a passion, now you need to turn it into your niche. “What’s a niche?” I hear you say. Let’s go back to the dictionary!
A niche is described as several things but the one that relates the most is: ‘a comfortable or suitable position in life or employment’ i.e. “he is now a head chef at a top restaurant and feels he has found his niche” If you take another example relating to a passion “he is now working from home blogging about cooking and has found his niche”
Your niche could be absolutely anything but should really be something that you love. Pottery, cycling, fitness, whatever you are passionate about. Why should you love it? Because when you enjoy something, when you’re passionate about something, then it is much easier to write about it and make what you are saying believable.
Imagine waking up for work everyday knowing that you are going to enjoy what you are doing! Who wouldn’t want that for a job? In fact, it becomes more than just a job, a job is something that you have to do to pay the bills. A niche, a passion is so much more than a job, it’s a labour of love!
Making Money From Something You Love
A cup of coffee, your laptop and something you love. What better way to start the day! And yes it is a possibility, a real life-changing experience that you can achieve. How? Hard work!!
I know, the reason you want to leave your job is you want an easier life not to have to work hard still. Well, you can, but as with any business it takes time and hard work to get to where you really want to be. And as with any business you get out what you put in! So, if you want to earn a lot of money you have to work for it.
You have your niche, the thing you love, so what’s next? Monetize it!
