Go to your bosom: Knock there, and ask your heart what it doth know. William Shakespeare
Follow your heart and it will enrich your soul, which is the most essential part of your existence. We tend to forget that our soul needs to be fed with our hearts desires in order to be complete and content. This is why I always advise my clients and readers to adopt a simple rule Follow your heart.
Follow your heart and you will see how your life starts to fall in place. Its almost like finding that ONE piece of a jigsaw puzzle which will make fitting the rest of the pieces in so much easier. You need to find your passion/s. It can be fishing, painting,photography, anything under the sun which makes YOU a happier person.
Let your heart rule and your imagination run wild. Dont think about the practicality of your passions just yet. Isnt that what weve done throughout our lives? Thinking practically and then letting go of things we wanted to do. No harm in dreaming while you take a break from normality, right?
Do you remember this? I learned that there were two ways I could live my life: following my dreams or doing something else. Dreams arent a matter of chance, but a matter of choice. When I dream, I believe I am rehearsing my future. David Copperfield
Dream, follow your heart and make it your life!
If for example, you are passionate about photography, list all that you can do collect and organize photographs youve taken in the past, do a little research on what is happening in the world of photography etc This will help revitalize your hidden, buried love for it. The next step is to click away! Eventually, youll see a theme developing in your photographs, then you can give them creative captions and the list of ideas goes on and on. In this exercise the MOST important thing to do is to show your passion to the world while you make a living out of it!
When we follow our heart and our passions become our lives, the benefits we reap from it are far greater than we ever expected. You will not only be making a living out of what you love but it will make you a happier person. What better way to find success? The guru would say Internet Marketing!
Join a social networking and bookmarking websites if youre not on it already, make a nice profile and put your passion on display. Blog about it, talk to other people who share the same interests. Believe it or not, this will help you in discovering yourself so much! Often it is difficult to find people who share your passion because no matter how hard we try, it is not possible for a normal person with the typical 9-52 job routine to expand his/her social circle. The world of the internet especially since the invasion of social networking websites and blogs, the internet is this amazing social club where you dont have to work very hard in finding people who have the same interests as you.
Put up your photographs on your profile or ever better make your own website! You can ask a professional to make a nice, catchy website for you. Once its up there, you can tell people about it, share it with those who might be interested in buying the photographs youve taken or want to use your services as a freelance photographer. Market your work, internet is just the tool you need. Spice your offers by adding incentives; like in this case you could give them a free frame. Make your presence felt and tell the world that you have arrived! You have to have faith in yourself, in your work and you have to remember that when youre doing what you love, people WILL notice it because it is human nature to be curious about those who follow their passions.
Want to know the best thing about this whole business? Initially, you dont have to invest in a shop or an office setup because youre communicating online with your clients, yet you will find the amount of money you can make just with internet marketing. You can communicate wherever you are, whenever you want to!
Having a lousy day or second thoughts? Write this down somewhere to help you out on the days you are blue:
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dream. Paulo Coelho
