We don’t all choose our jobs by what we love. Or maybe we once loved our job but don’t anymore. Since we spend most of our waking hours at work we have the right to enjoy what we do. Here are a few ways to make a living doing what you love.
Identify What You Love
This might sound odd but we can get so busy adulting that we can lose sight of the things we love most. Even worse, the things we love are often what we give up as a sign of maturity. By all means, what you loved doing when you were younger may no longer be what you enjoy now. But now is the time to make a list of all the things that bring you joy—absolutely anything at all.
Think Outside The Box
We are in an exciting day and age where you can leverage the power of the internet to launch a low-cost business, or to generate rapid awareness for traditional brick and mortar businesses. You can even access customers well beyond the area you live in, both nationwide and globally. So, brainstorm out of the box ways to turn what you love into a revenue stream. I had a friend who loves houseplants so she created an online store. She specializes in just a few varieties of plants in different sizes with decorative pots—and she has a super successful business.
Get Some Help
If the first two steps sound too good to be true, it’s time to shift your mindset. In order to do that you will need to explore some less limited thought processes. One way is to read the book by You Are A Badass At Making Money by Jen Sincero or to work one-on-one with a life coach or LOA coach to shift your perspective to one where unlimited potential is available to you.
You can do what you love full-time or part-time. Here’s to a job you wake up excited to do each day!
