If you are thinking about starting an online business it is important to choose a product or service that you are passionate about because when you feel strong about something it shows in your character and in how you relate to your customers. Many people become successful with their online business ventures as a result of being passionate about what they do. Their excitement and enthusiasm radiates to others and keeps customers returning in drives to do business.
If you have been working in the 9 to 5 grind you very well may have forgotten what you are passionate about. You get up in the morning, go to the job, go through the motions, and then come home exhausted with a few hours to spend with your family until you go to sleep. The next day the cycle begins all over again and after a period of time you get so ground down that before know it you have forgotten your passions and interests.
So if you are trying to start an online business I suggest that you take a time out and sit down to reconnect with yourself to rediscover the things you are passionate about. Then recharge your batteries and get to work on matching your online venture with your passion.
The Big Question
More often than not the people that have succeeded in online business have gotten there as a result determination, focus, and perseverance. These three attributes do not happen unless there is passion behind these actions.
It is easy to get influenced by the naysayer that tells you your idea will not work. These are the people that remain stuck in their situation and often complain but never do anything to change their situation. Also, by nature a lot of us are programmed into the old traditions of go to college, get a job, and then work for the best years of your life in hope that you are healthy enough to enjoy retirement when the time finally comes. So the first thing you need to do is try to break out of that mold and get in touch with what you are passionate about.
The second thing you need to do is ask yourself the big question: Are you going to choose an online venture because it is popular and others recommend it or are you going to work at something you truly enjoy and that brings you a sense of fulfillment? Although the choice is yours doesn’t it make sense that your chances of succeeding will be far greater when you are doing something you love to do?
Some of the most successful ventures were launched with a single idea that came out of a passion for something. So once you have decided on your passion the next thing you need to do is ask yourself, “Is the product something people will want?” The only way to determine this is to spend time researching the product and your market.
If you find something that you are passionate about and the product serves the needs of a specific market then there is no doubt that you are on your way to success with your online business.
If you are not passionate about what you do you are going to end up exhausted and bored for most of the time and you will find it difficult to become knowledgeable on the subject. When you think about it, isn’t this what you are trying to break free from in the first place?
Now What Do I Do?
Okay so you have already decided that if you are going to make a change that is going to be a transition to doing something you enjoy so how do you go about finding your passion? Well, if you already have an interest that you spend quite a bit of spare time with you can turn it into an online business venture by becoming an expert on the subject.
For example, if you spend a lot of time boating perhaps you can create a how to guide in a specific niche for boating and then build from there. If you do not enjoy writing you can find a competent writer who enjoys writing and will be willing to ghostwrite the publication for you.
If you are having trouble discovering what you are passionate about then talk to others about their hobbies and interests to get ideas and to help you find something that you enjoy doing.
If you are afraid you do not have the knowledge necessary to accomplish different aspects of your business such as building the website or designing the graphics, there are many professionals that are ready willing and able to take on those tasks for you. Many of these professionals are innovative and creative and can also help you come up with other ideas for your online business.
Never Mind the Fear
For some people fear is what drives them to succeed while others become paralyzed by this emotion. At one point or another everyone is afraid to try new things, which is sometimes what keeps us stuck in ways that are comfortable but not necessarily healthy.
Fear is simply an emotion that comes from exploring the unknown and it can be the one key factor that keeps you from working at something you enjoy doing. Try to recognize fear for what it is and keep forging ahead anyway. Once you push through the fear it gets easier to try new things and I think you will find that you will look back and say, “What was I so afraid of?”
Break Out of Mediocrity
You only have one chance in this life to achieve your dreams. The cemeteries are full of unwritten books, songs that were never composed, and dreams that were never achieved. If you work at what you love it will never seem like work and you will look back on your life with fewer regrets about what could have been.
Respectfully Dedicated To Your Success!!
