If you only pursue what you love, it will not benefit you

Last Update: January 10, 2021

A lot of times most people will think: "I just want to do what I love".

That's what society have ingrained in our thoughts.

And if you think about it, it's very much self centered.

And self-centeredness doesn't benefit us as much as we like to because we're not producing value.

And we have to understand value = profit and revenue.

So instead of asking "What should I do that's fun for me?", ask instead, "How do I create value and benefit others?"

Bringing back to context.

Don't find a niche purely based on your passion or interest because that's where most people fall in the trap in.

Honestly speaking, if you start to research something, you'll naturally find an inclination or interest and admiration towards it. And this can be anything, really.

Hobby and work has to be thought separately.

You don't start earning serious bucks until you start treating this as a real business and not just a hobby, ie. dedicating a fixed time everyday to work on it, setting goals, etc

Because I'm very sure most of us here wants a better future and has enough of the coporate job you're stuck in and that's why you're here, finding a new beginning in this rapidly evolving world.

I would submit that IF what you love has a following of many others that love it too, then you will do just fine!

I work with what interests me because I can write content easily when everything else involved with my online business is difficult for me. I agree with you. I need to stretch myself.

I agree with what you're trying to say friend. But some people do what they love to do because that is all they know. Flexibility to do things in variation whether you love to do them or not is the path to most successful people. I think people don't have to stick to what they love to do, but be open to what can grow their business. For example: A person might love blogging about different horse breeds and that might be all they love to blog about. But if they add how to make their favorite horse breeds be the best race horse by doing some special training with some products involved then it might catch the eyes of a bigger audience. Thanks a reality based check post. All the best!
