How To Make A Living From Doing What You Love

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. 

~ Steve Jobs

Pursuing your passion and following a soul-fulfilling career is a big part of a happy and satisfying life.  Once you’ve found your passion, though, how can you manage to do it every day and make money doing it?   What keeps many people stuck at jobs they don’t like is the fear of not being able to provide for themselves or their families. But fear doesn’t have to hold you back, because your passion truly can pay. Here are four important tips that can help you do what you love every day and make a living from it:

1. Learn from others and build on their success. 

You don’t have to create something totally new and innovative.  Watch, consult with and learn from people who are already succeeding at what you’d like to do. You might be surprised at how willing they are to help you.

2. Hire others to do what you don’t like to do or don’t do well. 

Getting inspired can be easy, but staying motivated in your business or career can be challenging when you struggle with tasks you don’t love. One of the best investments you can make is to outsource the tasks you don’t enjoy or you don’t excel at. You’ll maximize your job satisfaction and boost your productivity at the same time.

3. Set realistic goals. 

The secret to getting things done and staying encouraged is to break down one big goal into manageable parts.  If you check even one small task off your list everyday, you’ll feel as though you’re making progress. Little by little it will add up, and you will accomplish your goal quickly and almost effortlessly.

4. Don’t quit when faced with failure. 

Thomas Edison had thousands of unsuccessful attempts before he created a working incandescent light bulb. He said, “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Don’t quit the first time you come up against a serious challenge as you follow your dream. Even if things don’t go as planned, you’ve still gained valuable knowledge and experience to use on your next project. 

To Your Success!
