Not only are you able to create your own flexible schedule by operating your own gig, you can wake up with excitement and passion at the start of your day to do something that you really love kicking ass at.
Imagine waking up around 10am on a Monday morning, no alarm clock blaring, no place to rush out to. You check facebook for a few minutes, and you see one of your friends already complaining about the 45 minute traffic jam on the freeway. She’s been up since 6:30 am, go, go, go.
You put on your favorite cup of coffee. A few minutes later as the bold aroma hits your nose, you notice that you’ve been paid for 3 orders ($97 each) of a course that you made months ago.
You have the ability to literally turn ANYTHING you can imagine into a lifestyle. However, you might be overwhelmed about all the mis-information out there, or you have too many ideas to start, or you may even have none.
Whatever we humans choose to do in life, it is way too tempting to choose something because we:
- See others successful in that area
- The Money
- Pressure from outside friends and family
How many of you can honestly say that you are too excited when you go to bed at night to wake up the next day and ‘go to work’???
I don’t see any hands.. yeah?
It’s not a surprise. The percentage fluctuates, but over 50% of people hate their jobs (or don’t enjoy them).
My mission is to teach you how to create something that will be profitable and something you will love doing, absolutely, because it’s totally possible.
To create a lifestyle out of our passions, we need to get paid for doing what we love. At this point, it becomes a ‘business’, but not like something huge and scary with the words ‘corporate’ and ‘ceo’ scattered around.
When you’re trying to decide what to pursue in life, you might be asking yourself ‘is this idea profitable?’, ‘will this make me good money?’.
What you’re really asking is, ‘How do I know if this will live up to my expectations before I sink all my time and money into it?’
Especially choosing one passion to turn into a profitable business – one enough to replace your income from your current job, and even surpass that by multiple times, it’s a natural question to ask about the money.
On the other hand, we feel as if we don’t choose an area that resonates with our deepest desires, our work and desire will suffer.
How do we create equilibrium between these two colliding concepts?
There’s a lot of people out there saying you should follow your passions. And yet, there’s an equal number of people out there saying passion doesn’t matter.
Let me tell you the single most helpful piece of advice that I got from an old man, from someone who at first glance I wouldn’t have had any idea would change my life.
Are you ready for it?
It’s a simple piece of advice on the surface, but entertain the idea with me for a minute.
You have to move in order to find yourself.
I want you to internalize this sentence for a minute. This is something that literally took me YEARS to completely understand, and it’s lead me when I felt the most lost in life.
Distilled from every successful person i’ve met, my mentors, and life experiences, here it is broken down into something tangible that you can use right now.
There is something I like to call an internal loop that exists within your mind. What happens when you think about doing something, writing something, planning, strategizing, and contemplating, you create an open internal loop in your mind.
Your cognitive willpower depletes as this open loop exists, eventually causing physical fatigue and blocked cognitive processes, kind of like bogging down your mind.
We humans were created to move. Humans are very physical, and we are ultimately spirits experiencing a physical reality. Only through expressing ourselves – the act of aligning our thoughts and desires with the physical – in other words, literally bringing our ideas into life (the physical reality), we are expressing ourselves.
By writing our ideas, creating art, expressing ourselves, we complete the loop because the mind knows that it no longer has to ‘keep track’ of these loose ideas.
Our willpower and cognitive processes are freed up, which lead to an organized and collected mind.
