Is there something that you are so passionate about that you would do it no matter what? If so, have you ever thought about making it your life work?
I want to share with you a quote from a great Australian talent, Rolf Harris. Here is what he said:
"Someone once said to me - first identify your obsession, then make it your profession and you will never do another day's work."
So, let me ask you again - have you ever considered making your passion your life work? Can you make the transition? You don't have to make a "clean cut" from what you are doing now. Do it in stages - a little bit at a time. Set some goals for yourself.
I have known people who have quit their boring day jobs because they have been earning so much money "part-time" pursuing a passion. But they didn't do it through luck or by being idle. Nobody gets rich between 9.00am and 5.00pm.
Identify the thing that you would do even if you would never get paid for it. That is your passion. Next, take some of that useless and unproductive "TV time" and work on that passion. You will find a way to make a profit from it if you put the time in and come up with an "angle." When passion steps in procrastination, laziness, excuses and all the other negative traits walk out the door.
Millions of people earn money from their passion. Not co-incidentally they are also the happiest and wealthiest people on the planet. Why not join their ranks? Remember, the old cliche that "Rome was not built in a day." Conversely, "inch by inch, it's a cinch."
Turn your passion into a profession and you will never have to "work" again.
