Maintaining your passion can be a FRAGILE process when you start.
Do not run before you can walk.
What do most babies do? They start by crawling, then the totter as they take their first step, and then, the finally start to walk once they have balance.
Ask yourself: “How Can I Keep My passion Alive, especially during these troubled times?”
Here are 4 Ways To Keep Your Passion Alive
- START WHERE YOU ARE WITH THE TOOLS THAT YOU HAVE – Are there people around you who would appreciate what you do? What about shops? How about social media? This way you will reach a lot more people.
- LEAN EXISTENCE – Get rid of what you do not need.
Ladies have lots of shoes, clothes, which often, don’t fit.
Men have t-shirts, first suite they ever wore to work, knick knacks from some games, or that briefcase that is often not used anyway.
And then there are those who have the old TV/radio that was overtaken by time; that old computer, which you keep hoping your son or daughter will use, then, as it turns out, it becomes obsolete with the arrival of the smart phone.
Divide them into what you will give away, what you can sell to raise some money towards your kitty, and what you can really keep to wear.
3. WORK ON SOMETHING ELSE TO GET WHAT YOU WANT
Remember Mary from our last session? Mary worked part time at a local store and earned enough to buy her paint and brushes materials for her art.
She also contacted local printers and asked for their off-cuts from other jobs to use for her cards.
4. USE WHAT YOU KNOW BEST FIRST, AND DON’T BE AFRAID TO START FROM WHERE YOU ARE.
My sister Becky loves to bake, and she makes the most amazing cakes. Our family and friends are always looking forward to their birthday cakes: they are so moist and tasty. But Becky only bakes when there is a family occasion, which means that her oven is often under-utilised.
I would estimate that, with her equipment and she would be able to share her amazing gift.
LOOK AROUND YOU – AND TAKE THE FIRST STEP, YES, I KNOW IT’S HARD, BUT DO IT. IN A FEW MONTHS, WHEN YOU LOOK BACK, YOU WILL BE AMAZED AND WHAT YOU HAVE ACHIEVED, BECAUSE
YOU ARE LIVING YOUR PASSION!
