4 WAYS TO GAIN FROM YOUR HOBBY

With the continuity of increase in human wants and decrease in resources available, temptation to scrap off our leisure time and replace it with a more meaningful income generating activity creeps in. well that should not bother you anymore. You can still go about your hobby while gaining something from it. The following are some of the ways:

  • Incorporate business in your hobby. Come up with a business idea of how to include business in your hobby. It should not be big or main event but just small to get you something. For instance, if your hobby is travelling around the world, identify an object that is associated with one city, buy it and go selling in those other cities. They might find it amazing since it is not available in their country and buy them. These can be bracelets, necklaces, dresses or utensils.
  • Add value to your hobby. Do some kind of specialization of your hobby. Takes some studies about it. Practice it often until you have mastered it so well. Do it passionately such that if someone is wanted who is perfect in it to be hired or do some contracts, they will pick on you. It can also earn you some promotion at your place of work. A good example of such a hobby is that of collecting artefacts. Do some background history of all that you collect then you can use it to explain to people but charging a fee for this.
  • Widen your hobby. You can always increase the boundaries of your hobby. Magnify it to be bigger for you to be able to fetch something. Think big and get your ideas moving. Let’s take your hobby to be helping out orphans or visiting children’s homes. You can plan to open one yourself then solicit some donors to fund it. Whatever is in excess is yours!
  • Get creative with your hobby. Come up with resourceful ways in which your hobby could help you beyond making you happy. For example look out for those other people who share in your hobby. Best people will be those whom you do the same kind of hobby. Mobilize them and form a group. In the group, try and come up with welfare for members. It can be collecting certain amount of savings every month to be used in case of any emergency affecting a member. Better still, you may decide and open a collective business where you will employ the manger and personnel to run it. Yours will only be to go and check the money in the bank.

What Life Lessons Can You Learn from Harry Potter?


What Life Lessons Can You Learn from Harry Potter?

When you step into the world of Harry Potter, your imagination takes over and you find yourself as a student in Hogwarts, the magical we all wanted to go to when we were young. In fact, like most diehard Harry Potter fans, you probably waiting anxiously for the letter from Hogwarts, only disappointing yourself when it didn’t. All we know is the people who grew up reading Harry Potter took away with them priceless entwined in the plot. Some of the lessons that Harry and his friends taught us were:

1.     Don’t Live in the Past, Live in the Present

Don’t live in the past, live in the present, as the past is unchangeable, but the future is yet to be made. Harry Potter, the boy wonder, could have lived the rest of his life under the cupboard of the his aunt and uncle’s house. He could have sulked at his luck for losing his parents at a young age, but did he? When he received the opportunity to go Hogwarts, he immediately took it and you know why? He wanted to take the reins of his future, shaping it the way he wanted it to be down the line, and if you ask me, it was great!

2.     Do Not Let Your Fears Get the Best of You

You need to confront your fears just as Ron did with the spiders and Harry did with the Dementors. In their case, facing their face was pertinent if they want to save themselves or their friends. In your case, it is not a matter of life and death. So, what are you waiting for? A signal? Conquer them to succeed in life!

3.     Money is Not Everything

Money is not everything so do not make it a focus of your life. You need to be happy and content with what you have, even though Ron wasn’t, and work hard towards the life you really want. On the topic of Ron, take a minute to reminisce the gifts Ron’s mother sent to him on the holidays and occasions such as the sweater and the ancient robe for the ball.

4.     You Are Never Alone, Unless You Want to Be

When you begin to shut people out, you will find yourself alone, but the minute you open yourself up to others, you will greeted with warm laughter and smiles. You want to the person surrounded by people who genuinely care for you. Even though Harry Potter did not have parents, he had his two best friends, Ron and Hermione, Dumbledore, Hagrid, Sirius, and in a surprising way, Snape. If you have read Harry Potter or watched the movies, you will get why we mentioned Snape.

5.     You Have to Learn to Confront Your Battles Alone

We already know that Harry fought most of his battles alone, but you another person who did that. It was Neville Longbottom who was the first person to defy Voldemort when he asked people to join him. It is time you stop looking towards others for help and learn to fight your own battles, just like Harry and Neville.
