- It’s Going to Be Obvious
Just because you know what you’re passionate about does not mean that you’ll instantly know what to do. In fact, often the opposite is true. Following your passion is not obvious, but that’s okay. That’s life. Embrace it, and move forward anyway.
- It Has to Make Sense
Have you ever looked back at your life and wondered how on earth you managed to overcome some of the problems you’ve encountered? Most of the things in life don’t make sense until after you’ve lived through them.
- You Can’t Just Follow Your Heart
This line of thinking has brought you nothing but misery, and you know it. It’s time to follow your heart. Follow your excitement. And listen to that voice inside you that beckons you to do what truly matters. Your heart will lead the way, if you let it.
- You Won’t Need Help
So many people resist help, because somehow they think it’s a sign of weakness, but it’s a sign of strength. It’s a sign that you are truly ready to follow your passion, because you’re ready to do whatever it takes.
- You Have to Quit Your Job
When you’re ready to do whatever it takes, you’ll realize that you don’t have to quit your job to follow your passion. You don’t have to make radical changes in your life. You only have to take things one step at a time. Let it go, and you’ll be much happier.
- You Have to Be Rich
You don’t have to be anything or have anything other than what you have or are right now. Don’t let yourself be held back by what you think your passion should be. Instead focus on taking small steps. Do what you can do right now. So what if you can’t follow your dream exactly as it is in your imagination? Do what you can do. Start somewhere.
- Small Steps Don’t Matter
Small steps are the only ones that matter. Forget trying to come up with one idea that will catapult you to success overnight. Instead focus on the mundane. Ask yourself what small step you can take today to follow your passion.
- It’s Too Risky
Is it really? What about wasting your life doing something you don’t want to do? Isn’t it more risky to not follow your passion? This is your life. You have to decide how you want to live it.
