Have you ever wondered how many people you meet are living quiet lives of desperation, with respect to how they earn a living? The answer would be...far too many. While millions of people would love to have a career or job they're passionate about, too many are stuck earning a paycheck at a profession they don't like, let alone love. Exploring your talents and finding a way to earn a living at what you love is a secret dream of millions of people. Once they discover their true-calling, they wouldn't trade the experience for anything in the world.

Soul Searching
It will take faith and soul searching to come to terms with your passions. It will take a deep inner conviction to admit there's nothing else you'd rather do. It will take a deep commitment to turn your passion into an income stream. Beyond soul searching is the ability to take necessary steps to make your dream a reality. Following through is the difficult part. People are often willing to put time and effort into making someone else's dream a reality, but rarely have the discipline to give the same commitment to their dream. Write your plan down into achievable steps.

Transform Your Passion into Income
Figuring out how to earn income from your passion is perhaps the most difficult task of all. You can attend an unlimited number of seminars, read hundreds of books and listen to a thousand tapes on the subject...and still not come anywhere close to achieving your dream. The passion for success has to burn hot within! You have to feel that no matter what you're going to succeed.
How good are you at your craft? Is there a market for your product or service? Can you offer a better product or improve on an existing one? What is your level of experience and what sacrifices are you willing to make to realize success? For instance, if you love music, how much do you know about the music industry? Is there someone who can help you hone your talents? How much time are you willing to spend to grow your talents? Asking questions like these and using resources, like Three P Beats, to help you get a bearing on how you might be able to make money doing what you love is a great career idea.

Find the Right Support
It is critically important to surround yourself by people who understand and support your efforts to find self-fulfillment. Your present colleagues may not give your the support you need because they may feel trapped in their world. This dynamic may cause them to give you faulty advice; that you won't succeed and that you're going to regret the decision to strike out on your own. The journey takes faith, and it's easy to falter. Supporting friends, on the other hand, know the difficulties you're facing and can help you feel less alone--and braver.

Invest in Training
A burning passion for success is a positive thing. However, before jumping into the fire of uncertainty, seek out professional instruction about your industry. Training can help remove all doubt if your career-pursuit is attainable. It takes passion and knowledge to succeed.

Read, ask questions and study what the successful people in your field are doing? Do everything possible to ensure that your dream has the fuel it needs to become a reality.
