Tips

  • Remember, there is no one else narrating the story of your life - except for yourself.
  • Visualize what your dream life would be, identify goals and then create a blueprint for your dreams. Do at least 3 urgent steps each day.
  • One of the best way to live off your passion is to keep an instrumental job you like for the time you build your dream job. For example if you want to be a pianist, you could give piano lessons for a while.
  • Keep at least an hour everyday to work on it, so you already start doing what you love. Consistency is the key to get to your dreams.
  • Doing what you love can enhance your achievement and get your target.

Warnings

  • Listen to yourself first, others don't get a vote.
