Finding your passion can be, believe it or not, hard work (especially for work). Start with making a list of things you enjoy & things that make you happy. And remember, these things can evolve over time. It’s better to make a conservative living doing something you love than to be wealthy doing something you hate. Here’s someone who says it a whole lot better than me, by the way: I Can’t Get No (Job) Satisfaction
I read this quote twice yesterday and sometimes you feel like a message is just speaking to you when you keep running into it:
I have no special talents, I am just passionately curious. – Albert Einstein
Often when we reach certain points in our life, we wake up to what our passions are and choose to follow them more than we may have in the past. It isn’t easy balancing our interests with life’s necessities of paying the bills, sending the kids to college and otherwise working for a living. But start to think more about what excites you – what gets you up in the morning and makes you truly happy to be living?
Now ask yourself, how can I begin to incorporate that passion into my every day life? You might start small – for example, through a hobby once a week. But keep at it and eventually that passion will lead you down roads that you might not currently know exist. When you are passionate about what you are doing, you’re happy. And when you’re happy, success follows.
Find your passion, trust in it and follow it. You’ll never regret it.
