Want to transform your life? A big step is to find something you are passionate about and do it for a living. It may not be easy, but the rewards are worth the effort. If you are not feeling challenged or feel lack of motivation staying in your current job will not only continue to make you unhappy, but you are not realizing your full potential in life. It’s time to dare to dream, dare to imagine the possibilities, and dare to actually search for what you love, and it is not only a possibility, but a probability.
Consider your hobbies. Is there something you loved as a child? Something you love now? It’s time to research the possibilities of making money from it. What do you enjoy reading about? Don’t close your mind to these topics. Look into them as a career possibility.
Brainstorm. Get out some paper and start writing down ideas. There are no bad ideas at this stage. Write everything down, and consider them later.
Research. Learn as much as you possibly can. Read everything you can on the topic through websites and books. Find other people in the same profession, preferably in your area, who you can interview. If there is no one in your area, find someone on the internet who you can interview via email.
Practice. Amateurs do not make much money. To make money, you need to have professional skills. If it’s something you love, the practice should be something you enjoy doing.
Don’t quit. It takes time to find your dream job. Success doesn’t come easy, so giving up early is a sure way to fail. Keep trying, and you’ll get there.
