Following your passion: #iMentor with Harkheindzel Kenny O.
How hard can it be to have fun all your life and be rewarded for it? This is the fantasy of many people. We all have that dream job! The kind of job that all you do is have fun and you get loads of millions in the process. The kind of job that all you do is sign documents all day and you smile to the bank every month. Well, can I call this a fairy tale?
The truth is this, many people are not ready to work. The idea of work itself bores the bones out of our skins. Well so what’s the way forward you may ask?
The solution lies with your passion. A passion is the agitated feeling you feel towards something you love, something you want the best from. But the problem is that passion requires more than just fun, it requires real work.
The initial stage of passion can be all fun and play. You do something you love and it feels so good, but the moment you want money to come out of that passion of yours then you need to put some serious thought into it.
1. SELL YOUR PASSION:
This may seem easy but its not. This is because people have enough problems already so your passion must be something that will solve one of the problems they are facing. Don’t expect people to buy into your passion just because you are passionate about it. You must induce the passion to them and it’s not all that simple.
2. BRAND YOUR PASSION:
Get skilled in selling your passion! This can be done through branding. Make people see the good in it them they can consider giving you time.
It’s good to be passionate but what’s the source of that passion? What are the factors responsible for that passion?
Is it an environmental factors?
Is it because you are currently unemployed? Will you still follow that passion if you had another chance?
Can your passion stir universal attention?
Will your passion last the test of time?
These are some of the questions you need to ask yourself, if any of the response to these questions is No, then you need to think again!
There are lots of people who are not happy with their jobs, they are doing it just for the money. Ensure that your passion is viable and has a good commercial value and then can be glad to work with you.

Make it as inviting as possible then you stand a great chance of making something good out of it.
