Realise your true talent

How would you like to earn money from doing something you love? If you love your job then that is great news. However, if you dread getting up every morning and long for the weekends, then it’s time you did something about it.

So many people are in jobs just to pay the bills, but consider how many hours you are spending doing something that does not satisfy your needs. Imagine instead spending those hours doing something you love, something you are passionate about... wouldn’t life be great?

What did you love to do when you were a kid? For instance, my daughter loved photography as young as five; hard to believe but I actually have a photo of her at the age of five taking a photo! I remember years ago telling her that she was a talented photographer and her reply back then was “the camera does the work, I just click the button”. She did however come to realise that this was her passion, and now she earns a living from photography. She doesn’t earn a fortune, but enough, and the big thing is SHE LOVES HER JOB. It isn’t about making a fortune or being famous - it’s about being satisfied.

I had another client who was a factory worker but loved fitness - he now runs his own gym classes and of course is very happy.

I always ask my clients what their talents are and most say they don’t have any, until we start digging a little deeper and then they always pop up. Here are just a few - music, painting, writing, sport, fitness, creating gift cards, dancing... the list goes on.

Sometimes simply bringing these passions into your life makes your rubbish job not so rubbish after all. As I said it's about being satisfied, and once you bring your talents into your life you will come alive. You will feel invigorated and motivated to make the dream even bigger, and who knows - you could end up making a living from it.

Don’t get stuck on the grid working 9 to 5 unless you love what you are doing. It is never to late, it's not that hard, and it is there inside you - don’t wait any longer.

Make a list right now of your talents/passions; think of ways of how you can bring these into your life right now, without quitting your job. You CAN make the time - all you need is the desire.

Don’t sit back and plod along - look within, realise your true purpose, and GO FOR IT.

You can do this!
