Which Hobbies Attract You and Why?

With the recent plane crashes at public functions there has been a lot of talk on the radio and TV on whether people will want to see air aerobatics at air-shows, whether there should be further safety control or whether people feel they are putting their lives in danger by attending. It has since been pointed out by pilots and officials that the safety records have been excellent with no similar disasters since 1952.

There are many ways in life where you are daily putting yourself in the line of danger. Road accidents, for example happen more frequently than that.

So why do people choose dangerous hobbies or put themselves in dangerous situation voluntarily. Consider some of the dangerous sports where injury is likely, for example: caving, climbing or motor-sports. It’s the thrill of the possible danger that excites participants. Extreme sports offer the adrenaline rush that some people crave.

Others choose the achievement of winning as their incentive to participate in such as darts, tennis, squash etc, or there are group activity sports such as: marathon running where just taking part is sufficient, and possibly beating your best, so the challenge is within yourself. Other group sports like cricket, football, rugby, or netball can be both participated in or watched, then the excitement is in watching your team win.

As a contrast think of the solitary hobbies like model-making, sewing, painting, gardening, etc where the challenge and satisfaction is in the creating. So it seems most hobbies are about achieving something either challenging yourself or watching others achieve their goals.

Perhaps the most satisfying hobbies are those that you can spend your life perfecting so that it is not only a hobby but a means of earning a living, for example actors, artist, writers, professional sport people and others; where there is a merging of work and play.

An online business is the excitement many people are turning to, which besides being a hobby can be turned into a way of life, where once your hobby business is sufficiently developed you can say goodbye to your boss and the daily commute. In fact you can work anywhere except an unpopulated dessert island, as you only need a laptop and internet connection. Turn your interest or passion into an internet business and change your life for good.
