It can be so frustrating when people advise you, “Just follow your passion!” Yeah, sure, you’d love to – If only you knew what your passion was. The world is evolving rapidly, making it necessary for everyone to find their passion. Be it a sophisticated job or simplest of things you want to enjoy, it is necessary for you to discover your passion before the time runs out. If you’re feeling stuck, here are three fresh ways to discover what you really want to do with your life.
Follow your curiosities
If you want your life to have some purpose, you must follow your curiosities. Curiosity is something which enables you to learn more about things which are not quite obvious to you. These may be your less obvious interests or something you never have experienced in your life before. It is also important to follow your curiosities because it also encourages you to nurture your interests, motivations and passions which separate you from the rest. Being curious means you are on the path of uncovering who you really are and what you want to achieve in the long run.
Surround yourself with others living their passion
You’ve probably heard that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Are the friends you’re currently connected to living their passions, or are they leading lives absent of real purpose? Be willing to evaluate these connections and surround yourself with a different group of people who are leading the kind of lives you want to emulate.
List what you love and connect the dots
Identifying what you absolutely love to do in life is of the best things you can do to find your passion and purpose. It may not make sense at first, but all of the things you enjoy doing are part of your path in one form or another, so grab a pen and paper and start writing. Once you have your list, take a step back and see how all these brilliant pieces might connect to the work you are meant to do in the world. The key is to be open, honest, and to let your inspiration run wild. (Hint: The pieces may come together in a way you never dreamed, so keep an open mind)
Imagine yourself getting up early, jumping out of bed, excited about going to work. You get dressed quickly, full of enthusiasm about your day. The sun is shining, and you take those first steps out of your bedroom. Now work out where you are going and what kind of job follows on from that feeling of anticipation. Building your life around what you love is something you’ll never regret. It’s your passion for what you do that will give you the drive, commitment and energy necessary to create any amount of success and fulfilment you desire, and you’ll have an extraordinary time while you do it.
