5 Tips To Do Work You Love While Supporting a Family

Published on July 26, 2012 by   ·   No Comments


There is no doubt that we all aim for: Freedom and Joy.

We are all seeking freedom of choice and having continuous joyful experiences. Most people live in pain because they are deprived of one or both.

For example, you’re hungry to quit a job you hate and start doing what you love.

However, you feel obliged to stay due to your responsibilities towards your family and your concerns about how you’re going to put food on the table and secure a decent lifestyle for your spouse and kids.

Scott Dinsmore of Live Your Legend recently hosted a great article by Leo Babauta of Zen Habits that answers this important question:

“I have a wife (or husband) and kids to support so how can I possibly make the transition to doing work I love?”

Leo created Zen Habits, one of the most popular blogs in the world, while supporting a family of 8! Which means that it’s possible to pursue your dreams while supporting your family.

Here’s what stood out for me in Leo’s answer to the important question above:

“When I finally found the passion ignited inside me, I stopped making excuses and started making priorities.”

He nailed it!

Passion is KING.

If you are truly passionate about what you want to do, you won’t accept making excuses for a long time. One day you’ll stop making excuses and start transforming your life.

No one said it is going to be easy. But, you can definitely expect that it is going to be worth it.

It will never remain hard all the time. As you move towards your passion, things will get easier. You just need to start. If you give up easily and keep on following your excuses, then don’t blame your family obligations. It’s your choice.

I believe that, “Where there is a heart, there is a way”

If you’re passionate enough, you can find the time and make the effort to create a life you can be proud of.

Conquer your excuses.

Here’re five tips to help you do work you love while supporting a family:

1. Simplify

Simplify your life. Make less commitments. Say ‘NO’ to things that don’t matter.

You will juggle between your day job and your passion business for some time, until your passion grows and takes on a life of its own.

That’s why you need to simplify every aspect of your life, so that you can find time and space to do what matters most in your spare time.
