Lots of people have no idea what their passion is in life.

But many others face a different kind of challenge: having lots of ideas.

The problem? They don’t know where to begin. Their indecision means nothing ever gets done. Which means their ideas never see the light of day.

Does this sound like you?

How long have you been wanting to start that blog, or create that podcast, or do whatever it is that you keep telling everyone you’re going to eventually work on?

The truth is, creative people have a very different kind of struggle. They’re inspired and passionate about the world and everything it has to offer. They want to create magic, to make an impact, to bring people together and make the world a better place through their art. But the possibilities seem infinite, and that can be overwhelming. Sometimes when when we’re presented with too many options, we end up choosing to do nothing at all.

So what’s the solution?

Pick something to work on, then just freaking do it.

I didn’t know how to write compelling content before I started People Passionate. I didn’t know anything about photography when I bought my first DSLR. I didn’t know how to mix and master audio and create an RSS feed before I started my podcast show. I didn’t know how to write copy, price my services, or create invoices before I started my photography and car detailing businesses. But I learned.

Get those ideas out of your head and into the real world. Because if you don’t do it, no one else will.

Here’s the bottom line: Every day you wake up, you have the ability to choose. Will you work on your art, or will you pass on the opportunity? It’s that simple.

You don’t have to do it for a living. You don’t have to get paid for it. Just make sure you do it. Make time to write, to paint, to sing, to dance, to take beautiful photographs, to skate, to film, to surf. If your ideas mean that much to you, you’ll prioritize them over everything else.
