Desires and dreams come to you because they are an inherent part of your soul’s need to grow and adventure and be creative.

Leo Babauta of Zen Habits and Eric Hamm of Motivate Thyself discuss their journey to making a living online. I am a big fan of using blogs to share your passion and purpose.

There is no safe life. Where did we get the idea that life was supposed to be safe? What of joy and consequence has ever been safe? Giving birth to a child? Taking a road trip? Kissing that handsome, winsome stranger? Give yourself over to risk. Risk is the only friend you have. Risk is the one who will make your blood flow red. You don’t want a safe life. You want a life that is so full of juice, joy and meaning, that nothing threatens you– because you’ve already won the prize.
If you have something to share that is information based. Now you have no excuse. the Internet is the sharing highway because it really facilitates sharing in ways that mankind has never had before.
