To live a totally passionate and purposeful life you must know what it is that makes your heart sing, what it is that makes you happy and fulfilled, that if you were not being paid for it and if income were not an issue, you would do it in perpetuity. The inner core of your being ‘knows’ what makes your heart sing. When you are in tune with this inner voice, it leads you to make the choices which align with your purpose. If ever you find yourself adrift, unhappy and unfocused, you can be certain that you are not operating from your core self.
Money cannot be the main reason why you seek your vocation. For if this is the only reason, you will continue to make one poor choice after another, ending in frustration and possibly failure of the ventures you pursue. Listening to your inner voice without engaging reason will often help you to avert frustration and failure more frequently. Because our conditioned mind is set to keep us doing what we are familiar with though it may not fulfill us. Stepping outside of your comfort zone is sometimes required to live a life of purpose and passion. Yet, stepping out is uncomfortable, and this is where many of us are stopped. To live purposely and passionately requires being bold enough to feel the discomforts and fear and proceed anyway.
Other obstacles in our path sometimes stop us too. A major obstacle is money. Money should never drive your choice of a career or vocation, or should never be allowed to stop you. Find a way to enroll those around you in your passion and perhaps you will find them willing to partner with you to offer some of the services you need to get started. Spending time in providing impeccable services to others in your area of passion will most certainly guarantee the financial freedom that you seek.
