What Do You Want? What Are You Passionate About?

I am constantly surprised by how often I hear people say that they don’t know what they want and how they aren’t really passionate about anything.

Personally, I can’t relate. As far back as I remember, I’ve always been passionate about things and always had goals.

Here’s a quick question that I always ask to people that say they aren’t really passionate about anything and are trying to figure out what they want to do in the future.

I simply ask “What would you do if you want the mega lotto/lottery?”

They’ll say all the normal things like, “Quit my job” “Pay my bills” “Buy my parents a house” “Put it in the bank” “Travel” etc…

Me: “Okay, what else?” “What would you do to fill up your days?” “Would you be a painter and be like the next Van Gogh?” “Would you rent a studio, look for a producer and cut an album?” “Would you start a non-profit organization to help the starving people of a third world country?” “Would you start up acting classes? Would you try out for the ballet?” “Would you buy a guitar and start a rock band?””Would you start up a business?”

Follow me on this?

It’s important to figure out what you are really passionate about and what you really want to do in life.

The man, the myth, the legend...

Having this ultimate objective will be your guiding light on your quest to creating passive internet income.

As far as topics for creating a website or blog, it usually starts with these two questions-

“What are you passionate about?” and “What do you know?”

I usually recommend that you build a website or blog based on those two things, but if you happen to be passionate about something that doesn’t really have a captive audience (like “underwater basket weaving” or something similar) and an audience that will continue to stick around to see what else you’ll be adding to your site like more interesting topics, products, and or services, then I would say to find a topic that will have a good user base like golf, dogs, fitness, cooking, stocks, cars, etc….

These topics can be broken down into sub-topics that you can create whole websites on. Instead of building a website or blog on cars, you can build one specifically on BMW’s, Audi’s, VW’s, Benz’s, etc…

Same thing with dogs. You can build up a site on Pugs, Pit Bulls, Poodles, etc…

Each of those sub-topics will have hundreds of thousands of users that share the same interest.

So, start with what you are passionate about and what you know. If those don’t seem to work as a base for building a website, then start getting creative and look around you to see if something pops out at you that you know has a big audience.
