I think people have traveled the world looking for the secret to success.. Well I think I’ve figured it out for those that care to listen…

"Do what you love, and love what you do.."

THERE.. It’s that simple.

So many of us are concerned about doing what makes money, or trying to make money at the things we’re doing we don’t ever stop to think , "Am I really enjoying this? Do I love what I do?" But by then, it’s too late because you’ve amassed so much debt, or got used to living a certain lifestyle that you CAN’T stop.

Don’t start the endless cycle of dismay..

Remember when you were a kid, and someone asked you, "What do you wanna be when you grow up?" I’m willing to bet, you weren’t concerned with money, or 401k, or health insurance, or even qualifications… You prolly just looked up to the sky w/ your hand on your little chin and said whatever made you happiest..

That’s what you should do now..

Money will come if you’re good at what you do. If you truly love what you do, you’re going to want to become the best at it that you can, and people will seek your quality and be willing to pay for it..

That’s what’s starting to happen with my photography. When I sat down and really started trying to get serious with it, concentrating on the technical aspect, strengthening my editing, thinking about my shots before I pressed the shutter, a change occurred in me and my photography. I still have room to grow and plan to continue growing, but new opportunities are already coming in because people recognize my passion.

So just be honest with yourself and really think about what you love to do.. Then you’ll understand "the secret" is within you as well..
