So you’ve figured out what it is you love to do. You love doing it because you lose track of time and funnily enough you’re not stressed or tired. In fact you go to bed reluctantly at 2am and wake up in the morning anxious to do it all again. You’re invigorated and excited. That’s passion.
The passion you possess for what you do will enable you to work tirelessly through the hours necessary to succeed. You’ll have your down moment for when you lay aside your tools. You’ll stop for dinner, play with the kids and spend quality time with your spouse but you won’t have those occasions for golf or surfing or the weekly game of poker you used to indulge in. Be prepared let go of those things for the time being.
If you’re serious about what you’re doing, you’ll be learning all you can about it. You’ll breathe it, you’ll live it and like a drug, you’ll hunger for more of it. You’ll find people who are interested in the same thing you are with whom you can talk and learn of other techniques akin to your passion. All this is going to lead you to the success you seek but don’t for one moment think you’re going to see grand results over night. You’re going to need patience and a lot of it.
While patience is the secret sauce, you’re going to plan and you’re going to be 100% certain that you know exactly what you’re doing. You’re going to ensure you’re doing everything to the very best of your ability so that there won’t be any backward steps. The reward to all this is not the gold watch but the 100% happiness you will experience when your passion becomes your business and your customers cannot get enough.
If you adopt a niche that does not truly resonate with you but the dollars you could earn look very attractive, you will probably lose interest very rapidly. You’ll find it to be too much work, you’ll get tired and resentful as the frustration builds and eventually your venture and you will fold.
Your interest in a niche that does not excite you will be terminable and perhaps this is how you will be forced to look inside and see where your true, innate passion lies. When you’ve found it, nothing, nothing will prevent you from storming ahead. You will pursue the happiness and the unshakable success you will have and surely deserve.
Be true to yourself and the rewards will be insurmountable.
