If I could choose my passion, It would be Medicine. In terms of all the categories that are generally important to most people, its right up there…
- Making a meaningful contribution to the well being of individuals- check!
- Fantastic salary- check!
- Social status- check!
- Job security- check!
- Are you passionate about it? This one was of utmost importance.
- Are you the best at it? There’s no use putting your energy and focus in something that you are mediocre at. It’s more about finding that unique talent that you have, that would separate you from your competitors. Nobody can beat you at being you, so what is that key factor you can tailor your business idea or profession that will allow you to excel?
- Can you make money from it? This is the part many artist’s tend to neglect. At the end of it, we all need to eat. It’s easy to get so caught up in the creativity of your craft, that you don’t think about the business aspect. This does not mean you have to sell your soul. If you are passionate about painting, for example, find smart avenues where you can auction your work; approach galleries; create a website, approach quaint restaurants that may value your technique and paint for them etc, without changing your actual artistic style. The options are limitless.
