Is “Finding Your Passion” necessary? No It’s Not.

The latest scientific studies show that “finding your passion” is far too limiting and only works for a small number of people.

The optimal approach is to “develop your passion” through following up your interests and working to develop them.

You may not be passionate about your interests at first, but as you learn more and develop more skills, you can become quite passionate about those interests.

Doing what you are interested in is much easier than figuring out what you are most passionate about.

Also, discovering what interests you is much easier.

What subjects are you most likely to talk about with your friends?

That will vary with the group of friends you are with but which subject is most likely to crop up when you talk with new acquaintances?

What can you talk about for hours given a chance?

Those are your main interests.

From those pick one to focus on to develop more skills and knowledge.

Assuming that you are reading this email because you want to make more money, the next step would be to determine if there is a demand from others related to this interest who will pay you for sharing.

Then it’s a matter of learning and sharing what you learn with links to stuff your audience can buy.

Too easy.

You get paid to learn about something you’d discover for free.

That, my friend, is the secret to success, not “finding your passion”.

Do you find your passion here os are you only interested?

While you are in the process of learning and sharing, it is in your best interests to find a way of getting paid for what you do.

There are several ways of doing this.

You can go down the affiliate marketing path which we’ve discussed before, and you can find the best training for that here.

You can go down the subscription path where people pay to watch you create, learn and share.

If you prefer to leverage the Amazon behemoth, then this may be your path.

      Thank you for reading my post Arun.
      I will have to read more of your posts as well, very thought provoking.
      Where will we get the time to read everything we find interesting on the Internet?
      Only by heavily filtering out the stuff that’s only slightly interesting.

    Interests work as the seeds, which, if nourished well, turn into gardens.

      Thank you for your kind words. Life is challenging for some people and appears to be a breeze for others. I don’t believe them, I suspect they’re good at hiding their challenges like swans hide how fast they paddle.

        I would agree completely with that; a human being without troubles would be alien. LOL
