If you’re one of the humans who wants to increase your income this year doing things you’re passionate about, then I suggest you simply begin to share and sell what you know to others.
Here are 3 ways you can do it:
- Teach others how to do any of the things you’re passionate about. Become a publisher that puts out educational content on your topics of interest. A media company that talks about a shared passion in an entertaining way. This can look tricky when you’re not an established leader in your field but that shouldn’t stop you from sharing knowledge you already possess.
- Share the process. The concept of sharing your process, transformation and journey can be a lot more powerful (and a lot more profitable) than just waiting so you can someday be able to reach your ultimate destination, produce a great piece of work or achieve the awesome goal you would be most proud to share with your audience. Most people don’t respond to that as much as they did before. Nowadays people seem to be more interested in being a part of the action, witnessing the progress rather than just seeing the end-result in your life.
- Help people achieve the results they want in their lives. All people care about is themselves, their lives, their problems. And I’m sure you don’t know as much as you would like to know about your topic of interest but that doesn’t really matter when it comes to helping others. People don’t mind dealing with a so-called “expert” but what matters most is how are you going to achieve the result they want. The beauty of (and what I learned about) consulting is that you only need to know more than your client does. As an added benefit it’s also a good way to look at the markets–if you can just identify people who have less knowledge than you and/or are struggling with issues you’ve already solved for yourself in a given field. You can offer them a solution to their problem … and if it really works … you’re going to make a whole lot of money.

I used to think the main purpose of life was to be rich, happy and successful.
But I found out I was wrong – dead WRONG!
I discovered that when I read this Bible statement, “Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.” (Proverbs 11:4)
In other words, we could have all the riches, happiness and success in the world but that isn’t going to help us escape the wrath of God that will be revealed on the Day of Judgment. I bet millions of untold ones around the world take too long–as long as their death–to find out the Bible was right.
What’s more, our souls could be required (and our precious lives be taken away from us) at any time. And we will end up losing those pleasurable achievements we so foolishly hold on to. It’s like the rich man who was planning an abundant future for himself. He wanted to “Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry. But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very very night your life will be demanded from you.’
After all, why should we ignore the global deaths dilemma if there are 150,000 people who die each day around the world?
Of course, what this really comes down to is belief.
A discerning and wise biblical statesman I tried to pattern my life after, named Joseph, once predicted that the land of Egypt would suffer a severe famine that would last seven years. And he advised Pharaoh and his servants to store up the produce of the land during the time of plenty. So, Egypt’s deliverance depended upon whether they believed him or not. Had they not believed Joseph, they would not have reserved the food for the future, and the land may have perished during the seven years of famine.
In the same way, our eternal deliverance depends upon our beliefs. Beliefs are SO important.
Do we believe there is a God?
Do we believe there is a coming Judgment Day – a day when God will judge the world in righteousness?
Are we afraid of what He will do to sin-loving sinners like us on the day of His wrath?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, we shall repent of our sins and turn away from them. We shall lay our lives at the foot of the cross where God has made provision for us to be forgiven and made righteous in Christ so that we can escape damnation and hell – and we shall do it TODAY.
If, on the other hand, we do not believe any of these statements, we will do nothing about it. We will not trust in the righteousness of Christ for the coming Judgment Day. We will try to fool ourselves by building a life of riches, happiness and success – and overlooking the fact that we are all going to die. Look, we don’t have to accept it. But the most important moment of our life is going to be our death. It’s an appointment each one of us will have to keep. It’s the ultimate appointment.
The wisest man who ever walked on the face of the earth once said, “what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”
Friend, heed to his wise words – and don’t take as long as millions of untold ones around the world did to find out he was right.
Uncommonly successful people have learned this simple secret: Instead of relying on your talent, skills or luck to get the results you set out to accomplish, you can simply start to experiment and plow your way to success through your mistakes and failures.
Which led me to pen the following: “Great success is often not seen as good luck or skills or talent by the few elect that manage to achieve it. It is simply seen as an unwavering ability they possess to fail and keep trying until they reach their goal.”
To be fair, I didn’t create this out of thin air. I simply compressed the meat of all that I learned about raising yourself from utter failure to greater success from a man I saw on TV last weekend. Men like that unknown French dude know that victory is fully appreciated after you’ve experienced the bitterness of defeat. Take the risky road, not the safe road. Fail-and learn.
Consider this quote the roadmap for achieving greater success in anything you do. Il faut connaître l’amertume de la défaite pour apprécier vraiment la victoire à son maximum.
FRIEND! It’s okay to feel hurt and confused when bad things happen in your life. But don’t let your feelings lead you away from God’s plan.
If it feels like all that’s left of your heart and story is broken pieces, you can always trust in God. Remember that He controls the narrative of your story. He had a purpose for your life all along.
I’m praying for all around the world that are hurting and confused right now. ❤️
