I’m a big proponent of pursuing your passion. I work with a lot of writers and I’m always telling them to combine their passion with their purpose to get inspired and write their books (and publish them or get them published). I also work with other people who simply want to create better results in their lives; I tell them the same thing: passion+purpose=inspired action.
I’m not good at taking my own advice. I have realized lately that I don’t always pursue my passion. Sometimes I’m too busy doing what I think I should. This is especially true when it comes to making money.
In the last two months, however, I keep hearing the same thing over and over again: Pursue your passion. Do what you love. Build a business around your passion.
So, I’m starting to listen. Especially when I sit down to coach one of my writing workshop attendees about how to get his book written and he asks me to give him advice from a Kabbalistic conscious creation coaching perspective–not from a writing coach’s perspective. Well, that took me aback just a bit.
You see, I am passionate about writing and publishing and helping people get published. But I set out not only to write books on this topic but also to write books about human potential and spirituality–books about things like Kabbalistic conscious creation. Why? I’m passionate about these topics. But somewhere along the line in my attempt to get published and make money, these topics fell by the wayside. At least for a while.
I have discussed them here on this blog, it’s true. And I’ve discussed some of my passions on my other blogs, it’s true. But it’s time. It’s time to really start pursuing those passions again, time to build a business on those passions rather than around what I think I should do or what I have been pigeonholed into doing.
What about you? Are you pursuing your passion? Are you building a business around it? Building a lifestyle around it? Let me know. Leave a comment.
