What do I love to do and how can I make money doing it?”
Do you know what you’re good at, and deep down do you have a dream – a burning desire, telling you what you were born to do?
My advice to anybody is to find what you love and what you are good at, then do this to make your living.
So what gives you joy?
To spend your day doing things you love to do, with people you love working with, on something you would do whether you were paid for it or not, now isn’t that the way life should be lived?
But, imagine if you could get paid for it.
Now, how does that sound?
If you are in an uninspired place in your life, it is vital to find some things you enjoy and that excite you. Begin to do what you love and love what you do. I did and have never looked back since. I would now hate not to have a passion for business, it makes every day just so exciting.
The one question you should be spending your time researching is:
How can you do something you love and make a great living from it?
Once you find the answer to this you can set about bringing it together to enable you to wake up every morning excited to go to work.
My belief is that unless you find the passion for whatever it is that you are doing success will be unachievable. When you combine your life passion with your knowledge, skill, and experience you are now on to the right road towards success.
So if you want to succeed then you have to work with your passions, it’s that simple.
How else will you get through those times when you feel like you are working for nothing, because you are not seeing any return for all your effort. In such difficult times, only passion can keep you going, maintaining the belief that you will eventually succeed.
Any blogger knows how this feels, and knows that indeed it is our life passion that keeps us going. When I first started my blog at Healthy Lifestyles Living I was getting no more than a handful of visitors. It felt like nothing I was doing would get me visitors. Yet my passion for my subject, my love for inspiring others, even just one person was enough to keep me going. It took me just less a year to get to over 10,000 unique visitors a month, but since then it has gone from strength to strength, and was worth all the hard work and effort. And here am I at www.larry-lewis.com trying to do it all over again. It must mean I love blogging that much.
My dreams have always taken over and seen me get through the obstacles and struggles.
I’ve done all that I have and it’s never felt like work, not one day of it. I simply love everything that I do.
If you build a business that is filled with positive passion, then work and life will become fun.
By not only identifying the passion, but letting it burn…by using it, I am changing the course of my life.
By doing what you love and believing in it, everything will come together naturally. To me this is the key to entrepreneurial success.
What a simple equation this is. If you have a dream, to do what you want to do, and get paid for it, being able to support your family, as well as having time to spend with them, while being fulfilled in life you have the formula for entrepreneurial success in your grasp.
So many of us that have found our life passions and run successful businesses because of it have begun journeys where we want to help others to enjoy this very same incredible journey. On the Leo Babauta blog Zenhabits he says in an article titled “The Short but Powerful Guide to Finding Your Passion”:[blockquote photo=”http://www.larry-lewis.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Leo-Babauta.jpg” align=”left” author=”Leo Babauta”] I’m lucky — I’ve found my life passion, and I’m living it. I can testify that it’s the most wonderful thing, to be able to make a living doing what you love
Look at the amazing story behind Apple and the legenday Steve Jobs. I love these words he said to a graduating class at Stanford[blockquote photo=”http://www.larry-lewis.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/steve-jobs.jpg” align=”right” author=”Steve Jobs”] When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something
He also said[blockquote photo=”http://www.larry-lewis.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/steve-jobs.jpg” align=”left” author=”Steve Jobs”] Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle

We all deserve to enjoy the way we spend our days. If we’re willing to dream, work hard, learn, and navigate uncertainty, we all have the potential to do it
