You’re ready to start a website but it’s hard to find a niche, I have 7 questions today to help you to find your passion.
It’s so true, it’s hard to know about what each one of us is passionate about when life is just go, go, and keep going.
Things are changing today, and the way we think what life should be is changing also.
Paradigms are changing, what used to be normal and everybody used to do, it’s changing now for better.
Does this sound familiar to you?
Your life should be easy, born, grow, go to school and learn all from your parents, grow a little bit more, finish school, if you’re lucky you will go to university, get a job, get married, have children, buy a house, grow old, be happy and that was it.
That was the old paradigm most of us grew in, today things have changed and more and more people are breaking in new ways to make a life, a life that can be happier and with more sense for each one of us.
People are daring to do things in a different way, there’s more information available to everyone who wants to find a way to live a life where he or she can do things they love, make a living and being happier.
Today we live in a time where there’s more options and anyone can make it, you just need to find what you are good at and find the way to make a living doing it.
As simple as it sounds!, well, you might ask me here, well, it’s not as easy as it sounds, how can I find my passion, how can I make a living on it?
So it’s time to get a cup of coffee or tea and your notebook, don’t forget that I have told you before, it’s always a good idea to have a notebook where you will be working with me, to work on your website so you can start making a living on it.
Today you will be working on 7 questions to find your passion.
Do I love my life the way it is today?
Or are you doing everything you should be doing as life is as it is supposed to be? take your time to look at what you’re doing today, your school, your work, your life, is everything what you’re doing taking you in the right direction to your lifes dream?
What activity you’re willing to do everyday for free?
For a moment, think you have no more money problems, you can allow yourself to do whatever you would like to do everyday, and you love to do it.
Even if you tell me here, you’ll be parting and traveling and doing nothing at all!
On this answer, think about what you can do to add value and to give to people doing it!
Some people are blogging about how to manage there time doing nothing and they are making a full income from it.
Some other people have found the way to travel all the time for free and teaching their followers how to do it.
Some other people who love partying all the time, have learned the way to make money selling e-courses about how to throw a party, or promote a party.
What is that activity you love to do, that you don’t even have a perception of time.
Time goes so fast when you do this………………… (fill the blank)
Think about those activities you love to work on, you could spend your life doing it, no matter how easy or hard is it to do it. You just love to do it.
What do you love to read about?
You love to read these kind of books ………………………….. (fill the blank)
Or what kind of movies you love to watch ………………………. (fill the blank)
You love to read and every time you go to a book store you go right to that direction, where you can find those kind of books, you have already a good collection of this kind of book at home, and you would love to have the time to stay at home and read more about this topic.
On your free time you don’t think about doing anything else, you just want to keep reading.
You need to work here to find a way on how you could help others by doing what you love to do.
Who are your heroes?
This time I’m not talking about Superman or Batman, this time let’s talk about the people who inspire you to be better in life.
Do you read books about their lives?, do you love to learn more about their lives and what did they do to get to do what they did?
Do you find yourself saying “I would love to be like he/she?” and you need to write down why do you admire that person.
When you work a little bit more on discovering why you admire someone, you might find out more of what you think, by going deeper in his/her life and what they do and why, you might find you would love to work on the same topic.
Many people were inspired by Deepak Chopra or Louise Hay and now they write books and websites about personal growing.
Would you change anything of what you do today, if you could travel in time?
Are you working on a job you have to, because you agreed to a promotion?
Do you have the job you agreed to because you went to school to learn that trade?
If you take some time to think on this question a little bit more, you will find sometimes we used to do things like a job or a life because we said “yes” in a moment, and we might find ourselves chained to this kind of life for the rest of our lives.
Working on a website about your passion might be a way to find a way to live the life you want to, it might not happen the next day, as you will need to work hard on it, but might be a way to start working on a life you always wanted to live.
What are your hobbies?
What are those things you love to do?, what are those things that brings up your creativity?
Many people work on their hobbies on their week-ends and during their vacations time. They find themselves by doing their hobbies they are happy and they would love to be doing this activity full time.
