I believe everybody has a place and purpose and a gift to give back to the universe. What’s yours?
I want to help you think through this question and begin discovering what you truly want to share with the world in this podcast. I also invite you to check out my book (there’s a whole chapter devoted to finding your business passion.)
In this podcast I share the process of how to discover your business passions in order to turn your passion into a profitable business.
Let’s start with a few questions to guide you through discovering your passions.
- What do you love to read? Which books and magazines do you read? Lately I’ve been enjoying an older book: “ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income” by Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett.
- What are you listening to and watching? Check your smartphone or mobile device. What you listen to and watch the most is most likely you areas interest, so pay close attention to that.
- What subjects did you enjoy (or not enjoy) most in school? Sometimes your favorite school subjects in the past will help point the way toward undiscovered passions you might have lying dormant.
- What do you admire or wish you had more time to do? If you find yourself dreaming about something you wish you were doing- then it’s probably a passion. Big hint.
- How do you choose to spend your time when you’re not working? What you choose to do outside of work is a good indicator of what you would rather be doing. (Unless, of course, you’re a workaholic and have a hard time winding down- and yes, that’s another story for another day.) If you want to discover your passions, then you should do a quick checkup on how you spend your free time.
- What do you talk about the most? Just ask your friends. They’ll be glad to let you know.
What to do once you discover your business passions…
- Create a game plan by making a few goals. (Listen in on my first podcast on goal-setting.) Put it on your calendar and plan to get started right away. Don’t procrastinate! If you do, it will be harder to get started on your game plan so don’t wait around. Hop to it!
- Get out of your comfort zone. Stretch yourself into doing things you don’t necessarily feel comfortable doing. It’s okay to get out of your comfort zone. We all have to do it.
- Keep doing it! Successful people are relentless– they keep trying even if they don’t feel successful. You might not feel successful at first, but it’s okay. Keep on working towards meeting your goals, and before long you will find yourself successfully accomplishing what you’d set out to do.
