No Passion – there’s a hole in your bucket

I can’t find my passion

A frustrated listener wants to know how to find his passion. I encourage him to pursue the things that touch his heart and to recognize that passion is more “developed” than “discovered.” But without passion, you won’t engage the talents of people around you and ultimately, you’ll burn out.

Hi this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want to live – and then finding or creating work that allows you to show up every day, excited to be able to do something that is meaningful, fulfilling – and profitable. This is where normal, indecision and ambiguity come to die. Welcome to the 48 Days Radio Show.


I can’t find my passion and it frustrates me to keep hearing about it.

It’s very common that people don’t know what their passion is.

Working on your own without passion is exhausting.

Remember, you’re looking for the three-legged stool:

  • Talent
  • Passion
  • Money

Plato says to follow your genius, you should follow what amuses your mind.

How can I be intentional about cultivating an Abundance Mindset?

85% of your success is going to come from your mindset.

Tips for how to have an abundance mindset:

  • Expect the good in others
  • Practice gratitude (I have a gratitude rock)
  • When something happens that you wish did not, ask yourself “What does that make possible?”

My wife thinks I have to have everything together in my life before I could be a coach.

If that were true, NO ONE would be a coach.

You can teach and coach from an area that you struggled with.

As a coach, you are not the source of all wisdom and knowledge. Effective coaching is more about asking powerful questions than it is about having all the right answers.

Should I create a product for a big or small audience?

You can get rich by doing something 10% better or providing added value to an already existing product or service.

Domino’s is a perfect example. Instead of focusing on making a better pizza or charging less money, they focused on delivery.

There’s riches in the niches.
