Finding your passion in life is very important. It sets you on your life’s journey and keeps you strong and motivated, even when times prove difficult.
Some of you have already found your passion in life and are pursuing it daily like I am. The rest of you probably have more questions than answers when it comes to finding your passion in life. Let me guide you through it a step by step process.
Step 1: Make A Personal Assessment:
If you have no clue where to start, then begin by looking at your strengths and weaknesses. Your skills are a good indicator of what you might be passionate about.
Are you good in drawing? Do you have a hidden musical talent? Explore the things you excel in doing and make the most of your abilities.
Step 2: Find What Makes You Happy:
Finding your passion in life is easy when you know what things make you smile. Are you at your happiest when you’re swimming or playing basketball?
If your answers coincide with your answers in Step 1, then you’re on the right track. If they don’t, then let’s delve in deeper.
Step 3: Review Your Search Engine Bar:
Another way to find what makes you tick is to check out the things you’ve been reading about online. Look at your browser’s history for evidence.
Are you always looking at book reviews or perhaps at fashion blogs? What you spend time online on can tell a lot about you.
Step 4: Ask Yourself:
The most straightforward way to finding your passion in life is to simply ask yourself that question and list down as many things as possible.
What are the first words that come to your mind when you think about your passion in life? These words will be your clues, if not outright answers, to your question.
Step 5: Give It A Shot:
Not sure yet - even with all the previous steps? If you have semi-concluded that your passion in life is knitting sweaters, then what’s stopping you from pursuing it? Of course, I wouldn’t advise you to quit your day job and gamble everything on sweaters. Just dip your foot in the water and see how it goes.
Finding your passion in life is as easy (or as complicated) as you want it to be. It doesn’t matter how long it takes you to find it either, since the journey there is half the fun. You might be surprised at just how much you can learn while trying to pursue your passion.
