How to find your passion? passion is a strong excitement or interest in something. It is a strong desire or feeling that you get in your stomach or heart that compels you to take action. Spending your day on the things that you enjoy and are most important to you will release your passion.
“Passion is energy. Feel the power That comes from focusing on what excites You.” – Oprah Winfrey
3 questions that could help you find your passion
1/ If you had to teach a subject, what would you choose? It’s only enjoyable to teach subjects that you like. The subject you’d like to teach is a good candidate for your passion.
2/ What did you love to do as a child that you no longer do? As children, we’re quite clear about what we like and don’t like. As a child we aren’t concerned with the perceptions of others; we do things just because we like them.
As we become teenagers, peer pressure and the need to impress others can stop us from doing the things we love. As we grow older, we become very focused on finance and the practicality of life. “Can I make enough money to have a decent lifestyle?” With some soul searching, you can find a way to make a living doing what you love. Life is short. Consider what you once loved to do and find a way to integrate it back into your life.
3/ What topics and activities make you lose track of time? Have you ever gotten so involved with a conversation or an activity that you missed a meal or were amazed by how much time had passed?
Maybe you lose track of time when you play the piano. However, take another step in your thinking. Is it the piano specifically or music in general? Is it the piano or the process of competing with yourself and seeing improvement?
Make a list of the times you’ve been so focused that you forgot about everything else. Imagine if you had a career that incorporated this. You’d never have to “work” a day in your life again!
