It is a common belief and perception that once you’re following your passion and you’re doing what you love, everything is easy for you. Our passion stems from what we love doing. It is something we enjoy doing even if it requires a lot of hours to finish, or even if it is not that easy.

However, behind all the glamour that may come with following your passion, along the way you will have a lot of challenges to conquer. Here are three things you need to remember if you’re doing what you truly love.

  1. Following your passion require sacrifices. When you’re doing something that you love, those challenges are taking you to the next level, growing your comfort zone, expanding it, and giving you the opportunity to learn new things.

Following your passion may require you to give up some things and there will be challenges throughout life, in business, and in relationships. When you’re having these challenges, you can easily be swayed by the thought of giving up, especially if you’re growing a business from your passion. These challenges are there to make you grow as a person and as a business owner.

  1. Doing what you love makes you live and breathe what you do. When you do what you love, you’re thinking about it all the time, you’re acting on it all the time, you’re telling everybody about it all of the time. I know there is a balance of work and life, but even when you are taking time out for yourself, you catch yourself having thoughts about what you’re passionate about. It is best to remember one red flag—if you can’t wait to remove yourself from your day to day work, you are not doing what you love.


  1. Follow your passion; not others’. Assess if you’re doing your passion for yourself and to help other people, or you’re only doing what you do because it is something you should be doing.

A lot of people have a perception that if you’re running a very successful, profitable business, you’re heartless, you’re not helping people. Helping comes in different forms. You’re helping people all over the place, with the people you employ, their families, and your suppliers.

Assessing yourself whether you’re doing the right thing is not easy, but if you follow what you love, you are doing the right thing.
