Make Your Hobbies LAST
Finding a hobby isn’t that hard. There are so many “hobbies” out there… just look on any social media, they are EXPLODING with hobbies of ALL kinds! So, finding the hobby isn’t the hard part. It is KEEPing the hobby for a lifetime that becomes difficult.
Let me FIRST, start by giving you the actual definition of what the word HOBBY means!
LEISURE TIME… PLEASURE. Well, that’s where I will start.
Find a Hobby That You ENJOY
If a hobby is supposed to be for pleasure, then people that hate to clean their house can’t call “cleaning” a hobby. Even if you feel like you do it ALL the time! For me, cleaning is one way I relax! So, I actually consider it to be one of my hobbies. I love to crank up some music and go to town cleaning! Sounds strange to some of you but that is what is neat about hobbies. My hobby doesn’t have to be YOURS. It is all about what YOU find pleasurable!
Don’t Jump On a Bandwagon
I know people who can see someone else enjoying THEIR hobby and decide they want that same results in their OWN life. Therefore, they jump right in full force and try HARD to get the same level of satisfaction out of that same hobby just because they see others truly enjoying it. Again, a hobby is NOT forced. It is ENJOYED!
Make Sure It Works Financially & Structurally For You
I love JEWELRY! I started my inquiries into precious gem stones when I graduated from college. The owner of a jewelry store where I used to buy my jewels was a Chinese man. He taught me a lot how to look for quality gems, how to tell apart a fake from the genuine stone. He also shared how what goes into selling jewelry successfully. One of the ingredients of that success is a considerable investment on the regular basis. I decided, I’d be coming to him to buy the jewelry I love and let him figure out all the logistics of the business behind it! Not my cup o’ tea.
Whatever hobby you decide to take on, think long term and see if you could really afford to continue it for a long time.
Never Look At It As a Job
I love to write. Blogging is definitely a hobby for me. If I think of it as a JOB (even though I could make a few dollars doing it), I will lose my enjoyment in it. So, even if you are making money, don’t focus on the money as much as how it makes you feel inside.
