As much as we love to talk about passion and following one’s heart when choosing a career to follow, most of us end up in a field or a job pursuing a career we discover not to be as passionate about as we thought. Yes, you may end up doing something you demonstrate to be extremely good at, but if we want to talk about passion then chances are most if not all of us would be doing something totally different. I mean if someone literally paid you to do nothing at all, would you take them up on that offer?
You’ll probably eventually get bored out of your skull and it’s situations such as these which tend to reveal one’s true passion.
My discussion about careers, jobs and even business in relation to passion is with the legal field in mind and this is because I simply could never imagine anyone being passionate about law. That was until I came across a specialist company by the name of Stanton Fisher Financial, which as the name suggests deals with financial claims as their specialty. Whenever I think of a typical lawyer, attorney or any other qualified legal practitioner, what inevitably comes to mind are those huge books filled with legal jargon and theory which each of these professionals had to study and master to get their qualifications. I still can’t imagine anyone would be passionate about that amount of studying and memorising, yet my interaction with this specialist firm opened my eyes up to a whole new way of looking at it.
When pursuing your passion, it’s imperative to go through a process which entails acquiring some knowledge about it so that you can enter into a field associated with your passion harbouring some skills which you can use to generate an income. It won’t always be fun and games, but the reward is worth it in the end.
What I also learned is that there are so many different opportunities for legal professionals. You don’t have to start up your own law firm and go through the very stressful process of building up a reputation so that you can attract regular clients and you also don’t really have to wake up each and every morning and head to the offices of your employers, at whichever legal firm you work. There are plenty of options, one of which is referrals.
Think about it for a second — you may have to rely on bumping up the numbers of referrals as this way of earning your money in the legal field depends on volume, but how many people aren’t aware that they could in fact be in line to receive financial compensation through a claim they could file with a firm such as Stanton Fisher. As a legal professional who’s perhaps more clued up about whether or not a specific case and claim would have a good chance of succeeding, you could play middle-man and simply earn your monthly paycheque through referrals.
