Article How to Find Your Life's Passion
"Tips from Matthias" Series — Netherlands
I strongly believe that each and every individual has a passion, a talent, something that excites him or her, something that they would love to do the rest of their lives and even make a living out of it.
Finding your talent, your passion, your excitement isn't actually the hardest part, it's the recognizing and perfecting of it that is a challenge.
See, everybody knows what they really like doing, whether it is listening to music, taking long walks, building bicycles, designing websites, creating Artworks, or driving cars.
And it is probably something that has been there since your childhood. So in that sense it isn't that hard to find — at least one — of your passions.
Your Passion Is Fueled by the Desire to Explore and Know More
That's why it is so great to find your passion and to develop it into a professional skill that you can use to make money and start living your dream life!
All this is possible, because it is something you are really interested in, so you will keep pushing yourself to know more, become better and grow in your capabilities.
But how does one turn his hobby into his dream job? you might ask yourself.
The key here is to have a collective place, such as a website, where you can build and stall your knowledge, passion, inspiration and excitement of your subject.
Building a Website of Your Passion Will Attract People with the Same Passion
When you have your own place — a blog, YouTube channel, or a custom website — you have built yourself a stage, from which you can help, share, inspire, and display your works to others.
This then allows you to be a sort of online coach, a teacher or a tutor of your field of interest. Of course this all takes some time, but it is worth the investment.
Once you've amassed quite an audience and have discovered your way of expressing yourself, you can now start to think of ways to earn some money with it.
How to Turn Your Passion into a Real-Life Dream Job
There's tons of ways these days to turn your online hub into a profitable opportunity to build your future life without being dependent on working at a day job.
One of which is to create a online course or training material that your users can buy and help themselves with. Or you can keep doing what you're doing and let advertisement do its work for you.
Another, more favorite of mine, is to provide a real-life service, so people can actually hire you. For example, speaking at conferences, or giving practical courses, or financial consultancy, or designing a web page.
These are all excellent opportunities which aren't that hard to grab, but in return will give you a life that is free and filled with your passion.
