Do you ever wonder if following your passion is truly practical?
Do you doubt that you can do what you love?
You may feel deep down that you want to do what you love, but you’re held back by the questions in your mind.
In order to look at whether or not it’s practical, we need to look at what it means to follow your passion.
Passion simply means that you do something you enjoy. And when you’re excited about what you’re doing, you’ll be more likely to learn, grow, and move forward.
And when that happens, you’ll be more likely to succeed.
When you look at it like this, following your passion is highly practical. It then comes down to how you’re doing it. Are you doing it in a practical way, or are you just wishing and day-dreaming?
I recorded a 3-minute video on this topic. Watch it below, and then keep reading, because the video and this article complement each other.

How to Make Passion Practical
If we forget about the word passion, this all comes down to using your energy in a way that resonates with you.
And when you do that, you’re doing what you’re on this planet to do. You have certain skills and strengths. You’re drawn to certain things.
Then the question becomes: How can you do work you love?
And the simplest answer I’ve found is: Experiment.
Yes, there’s more to that answer, which is why I write, teach, and coach on this subject.
But what it comes down to is doing what you can with what you have. If you want to be a writer, start writing. If you want to help people overcome shyness, then start helping people.
Ask yourself: How can I help one person, today?
You might record a video, write an article, or offer a free coaching call.
To say that following your passion is impractical is similar to saying that enjoying what you do is impractical. This comes down to how you use your energy.
Do you want to enjoy your work, or not?
The belief that you can’t enjoy using your energy is just that–a belief.
I’ve followed my excitement ever since I was 16, although at that age I didn’t label it that. This is what I’ve done my whole adult life, and it has been highly practical for me.
It always comes down to how you do this.
You can choose, right here, right now. Are you ready to finally follow what makes you come alive?
