Are You Spotting the Trends that Tie in With Your Passions?

Updated on June 10, 2011

A lot of people look to money as their only reward. Instead of asking themselves, "how can I get more money, a better job?"... they need a better question.

Are you looking for the trends which will plug you into the greater good?

Trends such as: Conserving energy, using solar, growing veggies, cooking healthy meals, learning home skills (sewing, craft, baking), sharing photos, etc.

Keyword research with a Keyword Tool will help to find what people are looking for specifically, but first you can search through specific forums to discover what many conversations in your area of interest are about. What are people's everyday problems?

Tie the Trends to your Passion, and Turn Passion into Profits

One friend has tied his culinary skill and passion for healthy meals to the incredible demand for home cooked, gourmet, preservative-free meals. As a private chef, he cooks dinners at working people's homes (and store a week's meals), since there is a large demand from time-strapped families.

Another contact took her passion for tea and puts on tea tasting events, as well as selling and public speaking about tea.

I adore all the different ideas for internet startups (and their marketing), so I'm tying that interest into writing a new digital magazine for internet entrepreneurs.

Tying trends to your passion is usually a chance for you to make a positive impact on the world. You could:

  • Write a book or do research that helps others
  • Draw attention to a cause by cycling/walking a long way, with sponsorship
  • Give an impassioned speech to influence others
  • Start a group or join a non-profit group to help the community
  • Start an online service that gives and receives, like Buy1Give1
  • Teach a child or teen a skill and encourage their talent

Why not brainstorm some ideas right now?

Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year - and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!
- Tony Robbins (℅ BrainyQuote)

One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular. - Tony Robbins (℅ BrainyQuote)

Incidentally, Tony Robbins started with no staff, no real capital, just a dream to help people live a fulfilling life by being the best they can be.
