Motivation Monday Graduation – Find and Do What You Love

by David Ning · 7 comments

This is the graduation post of Motivation Monday as I believe I’ve found the ultimate motivation – passion.  As some of you know, I’m going to be blogging full time starting in November of this year.  Even though it is quite a few months away, I’m very excited at my new venture and cannot wait to get started.  Even though my boss asked me to stay at work until the end of October, I have so many ideas of what I want to do with my blogs already and will try to implement them even if I lose sleep doing so.

In previous posts, I’ve spoke about passion as it relates to motivation.  I told you that if you love what you do:

  • You won’t complain about the workload
  • You won’t feel Monday Blues
  • You won’t try to find excuses to slack off

Instead, you will:

  • Just do what it takes to accomplish the task
  • Think about it day and night without knowing
  • Have all the energy to talk about it
  • Feel happy working on it

I never knew what passion was.  I hear other people talk about it but I never quite understood it, nor did I know how to find it.  I knew finding my passion should be a priority in my life but I had no clue how to do it.  As a result, I was a little frustrated for a few years of my life.

Luckily though, I stumbled onto blogging a few years ago when I started writing about money.  It was fun to interact with others about this subject and it made me feel good to know that I helped a few people along the way.

As I got deeper into blogging, I slowly began to understand what passion was.  I began to understand what it felt like doing what I loved.  The time I spend on my blogs was long but it was fun at the same time.  My wife asked me at the beginning why I could spend so much time in front of my computer but she slowly absorbed my enthusiasm and the answer began to feel obvious to her too.

To say blogging changed my life was an understatement, as everyone I knew began to see the changes in me.  I was happier, more energetic and showed more enthusiasm in everything I did.

I really feel like I graduated on the motivation front.  If you are on the fence of deciding whether to take the plunge of doing what you love, then I have to tell you to go for it.

There is no question that finding my passion motivated me.  I hope that you will find yours too.

    What a heartfelt post, MoneyNing! My sincere congrats 🙂 One thing I’m curious about: you’ve said you didn’t know what passion was. Before blogging, have you also tried to make a job out of other passions of yours? Or were you just curious about blogging and it happened to really be your perfect match? Are you still blogging full time today? Or do you have another job besides?

    Accept my sincere congratulations.. You deserved it indeed. I ‘m looking forward your blogging full time and new striking posts to read and enjoy.

    Congratulations. Though Donald Trump may spend much of his time bloviating, I’ve always heard him and others hammer home the “love what you do” message. I currently enjoy what I do quite a bit, but it’s always difficult adjusting what used to be an ‘off the clock’ hobby into something with requirements and deadlines. I always have to explain that to people who ‘ooo’ and ‘ahh’ when I tell them I’m self employed; it just means everything is always my fault.

    Man I’m soo envy of you. That’s exactly my direction. Quit this I.T job and go full-time doing what you’re passionate about. However, my blog is earning $1/day (and most of the times just cents) and I don’t think its enough to buy milk for my baby and foods for us*laughs*

    I salute you man.

    I’m super impressed man… doesn’t seem like you’ve been blogging that long at all. You must have made a big jump in income fairly quickly. I wish I was that lucky. 🙂

    Great to see that you found your passion. There is really no comparison to anything else when you can do what you love to do.
