When Passion Fuels Purpose

in , , , by Linda B Hurd, July 23, 2019
There are a lot of popular and influential bloggers, books, and millionaires that will tell you that the key to a meaningful life comes from following your passion.

My challenge question today, "What is passion without purpose?"

They make it sound as if passion is all it takes to grow and everything else will work itself out. Following your passion alone can end up doing more harm than good—mentally and financially. You have to have a game plan and a strategy to use just in case the unthinkable happens.

I get it following your passion comes across as daring and inspiring. Those who have claimed to have followed their passion boast about how they gracefully left their 9-to-5 lives, dived headfirst into their passions, and ended up making the right decision financially.

Two things that they won’t tell you no matter if you even paid for their masterclasses on how to quit your day job.

1. They didn’t test the water with both feet. 
They made sure that what they were doing was going to secure enough income before dropping their career or job like a bad habit. They created a strategy to stay afloat with mentally, financially, and privately. Of course, some people say that they went homeless to chase their passions. However, they were still able to become successful in their passions.

2. They had skills in their pursuit. 
They had enough skill to open doors for them even if they created one for themselves. Also, they met a demand that was asked of them by their following or from what they already knew to be well-skilled in their pursuit.

I am not a popular blogger or influencer. I don’t own a business. I do have a brand. I also like many of you have passion. A passion that wants to drive me into a lifestyle that I desire to live. Now I know it will take more than just passion to open doors for me.

It can be impossible to control passion and courage. If someone did then it would leave them feeling defeated.

Work towards your passion to create a demand.

Save time by working towards becoming skilled at something in demand. Or you can create demand from what you’re skilled at. Use those skills that can apply to something worthy of your passion. Take some time while testing an idea in a small way to see if it will pay. After all, you have to have something to fall back on if you do decide that you want to go full-time into living off of your talents.

This is what I am doing. I'm educating myself as I take the necessary steps forward. I hope that this blog post meant you well. Let me know your thoughts in the comment box below.

Remember, what is meant for you will never pass you by. God loves you. Use the talents and passions that He has blessed you to do great things.
