Dearest Internet Enthusiast (hehehe!),
Here’s a funny notion…
Doing what you’re “passionate” about, AS A BUSINESS. Lol.
Ok, I don’t know about you, but most FUNCTIONAL members of society don’t have a whole lot of time to spare that they get bored very often or very long.
Between family, hobbies, and work, that’s a full day.
So let’s get real. Most of us don’t get into business to do what we have a “strong and barely controllable emotion” about (definition of passion. (Yes, I looked it up.))
And even if we did, I have a hard time believing you or your fellow subscribers dreamed of being an Affiliate Marketing rep when you grew up. Not even the type who sells crap online.
if we were passionate about our labours, we wouldn’t need to get paid to make it worthwhile.
Don’t worry. I’m not very different from you. I did not dream of being a Google Adwords rockstar (so cool), nor of servicing startup businesses in their traffic needs.
Yet, that’s what I do. And I do NOT love it!
It’s boring and I’d rather slit my wrists than have to get on another client call. — You know, i spend most of the call trying to convince the client why they should do what they paid me to tell them to do?!
But here’s what I AM passionate about…
Changing the world with one idea.
Becoming a living legend (like Tupac).
Getting a listing in Forbes top 20 rich list.
Exotic foods from around the world.
Hanging out with my beautiful lady…
Notice, none of these is a WORK PROCESS?
They are all goals. They are all things you have to do A LOT OF BORING CRAP to get to.
Goals BEG passion…but processes rarely do.
When you see me excited and passionate about what I’m doing, it’s not the work that makes me this way. It’s knowing that this work, hard as it is, boring as it might be, is bringing me day by day closer to my goal.
You are obviously not the same as me.
I don’t know what makes you passionate. I don’t know what goals you make. But i can tell you this…
If your goals need a lot of traffic to accomplish, then traffic is what we LIVE AND DIE BY at YaghiLabs.
