Think about what you’re going to do tomorrow.

Now, imagine that you’re failing at it.

Would you do it, anyway?

If you can figure out how to monetize something that’s so engaging, exciting, and meaningful to you that you’d do it even if you were failing, you’ve found your calling. Why? Because, even when you’re in the deepest valley, facing your greatest challenges, you’ll still be motivated to tackle the opportunities head-on.

That doesn’t mean that everything you love is a good business opportunity, though. If you can’t successfully monetize it, it’s not a business. It might be a passion, but your passion has to be financially viable before it becomes a magic business bullet.
