Finding your passion is a beautiful thing. Finding something you’re good at and being able to make a living doing it is a good feeling. Sadly, not everyone finds it.
Maybe you have multiple things you really want to pursue, and you’re not sure which direction to take.
Most find it difficult to take on multiple passions without half assing. Is it possible to take on two or more things equally, or do you have to choose one and ditch the others?
Focusing on one passion is the most popular answer, but that doesn’t mean you should accept that answer.
There are so many creative ways to combine ideas, and the world of social media has only made it easier to bring two different worlds together. In a way, it gives you an advantage because you may be the only person in that world. I like the quote: “If you want to be an anomaly, you have to act like one.” You could possibly become the first person to combine two things that have never been combined before.
For example, no one ever thought that the video game world and hip hop world could ever coexist. A company in Atlanta called Konsole Kingz, changed that and combined the two worlds together, creating a whole different world and bringing in a new audience.
Social media has created a world where the niche is rising to the top. The way Facebook targets capabilities, apps like Snapchat creating stars every day and Instagram’s hashtag culture, the more niche, the more engaged audience you will have. Use those things to your advantage.
Keep in mind that your happiness is a more important factor than money. Are you truly having trouble picking one? You may just have more happiness mixing the two than you would if you went all in on one.
So here’s a challenge: can you combine two or more of your passions? It’s okay to even get a little weird here. What is the most insane way you could combine them? Let me know your passions and how you would go about combining them.
