Profit From Your Passions

Last Update: December 27, 2015

Do something you like and are really good at, and making a satisfactory income—or better—will easily follow.

Persistence. But unfortunately, lot of people are "scared" of being successful because it could easily bring with it a lot of confusion and change. The human mind is instinctively resistant to change. The human mind is rational. It doesn't make sense to most people that struggle can end. I doesn't make sense that they may not need to wake up to go somewhere to fulfill someone else's vision.

"The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge ito it, move with it, and join the dance."
—Alan Watts

And, perhaps more relevant is this quote by the same man:

"It's absolutely stupid to spend your time doing things you don't like, in order to go on ... doing things you don't like, and to teach our children to follow the same track."
—Alan Watts

If you have 3 minutes, give yourself those 3 short minutes to watch this video.

As Alan says in the video above, "...somebody is interested in everything..." As Kyle points out, there are now more than 3 billion people online. The most obscure-seeming hobby or interest you have you share with others, whether you want to or not.

I have not made any money yet online, because I have been overthinking this and wasting my time. I've only been at it for a little less than 2 months—but I've spent hours "working online" doing nothing. I have a new pin-point focus on this and will succeed. And you will too!

I know it's a few days early, but *clink* to 2016!
