Confucius once said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Sounds pretty great, am I right? But of course, this is easier said than done. In a previous blog post, 7 Steps to Finding Your Purpose in Life, I shared with you the importance of pursuing your passion and aligning yourself with a career that fulfills your soul.
But if you’ve found your passion, how do you make sure you can do it every day, as well as make money from it?
One of the biggest fears that hold people back from pursuing their dreams is the fear of not being able to provide for themselves or their families, and unfortunately, this fear keeps them stuck at jobs they don’t like.
Well, I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way.
You can indeed love your job, be successful, and be happy all at once. That’s why I want to reveal to you 5 very important tips to ensure that you live your passion every day (and make a profit from it!)…
Tip 1: Learn from others
You don’t have to create something totally new or innovative; instead, simply watch what others are doing, and learn from them to move your business forward.
Network, talk to people that are already succeeding at what you’d like to do, invite them for coffee and ask them what’s working for them and what’s not. You may be surprised to discover their willingness to help you succeed also.
Tip 2: Hire others to do what you don’t like to do
Sometimes getting inspired is the easiest thing in the world, but keeping your motivation up can be challenging when you have to do tasks you don’t love. To ensure that you do what you love every day, it’s a good idea to outsource the tasks you don’t enjoy or you don’t excel at. This is, of course, an intermediate job tip, but it’s definitely beneficial to your happiness at the workplace.
Tip 3: Set attainable goals
So you know what you want to do in life? Great! But do you know exactly where are you going and how you are going to do it?
If you don’t, remember that the secret to getting things done is setting small goals and checking off one small task off your list every day. Even if you don’t accomplish all your goals, you will still have made progress and little by little it will add up. If your goal is to make more money, for example, start mapping out little changes you can make to increase your income. Perhaps you have a closet full of clothes you never wear - have a garage sale. Or perhaps you have a lot of free time on the weekends - pick up a side job. Whatever it may be, remember the small steps mean a lot in the long run, so keep pushing forward!
Tip 4: Don’t give up
It’s easier said than done, but if you’ve already found your passion in life, why would you not choose to take action on it, get out of your comfort zone and keep pushing until you achieve it to finally be successful?
At the end of the day, if you don’t take a chance and go for it, you’ll never know what’s on the other side.
So don’t give up the first time you face a challenge, and even if it doesn’t go as planned, remember that you’ve still gained knowledge and tons of experience that you can use on your next project.
Tip 5: Eliminate your limiting beliefs
This goes a little bit deeper than just being courageous or taking a risk, it’s actually more about facing and dissolving your most deeply rooted fears and emotions that hold you back from reaching what you most want in life.
I’m referring to those sneaky limiting beliefs that consciously or subconsciously contaminate your daily thoughts, habits, actions, and that makes you procrastinate, overthink and act out of fear, rather than abundance.
These hidden beliefs can seriously hurt your chances of success, especially if you start hearing those voices inside your head telling you that you’re not good enough, or not important enough, or that you’ll never make it.
I know this because I was there too. I had a hard time truly believing that I could sustain a business, let alone run the successful tribe you’re now a part of.
And if I had to choose the most important decision I’ve ever made for myself and my financial destiny…
I’d say it was the decision to vanquish the blocks that crippled me for decades and kept me from receiving more abundance, wealth and success into my life… and this is exactly what I want for you too.
I’ve spent many years studying how to replace these negative hidden beliefs with empowering beliefs that will help you reach your goals and dreams faster, and I’m happy to say that it’s now been perfected into a simple 5-step process!
In this awesome online training, I’ll be guiding you through simple yet powerful written and mind-blowing exercises that will help you free your mind and change your life.
Just be quick about it, because my invitation won’t be up for long!
