Adulthood is really a big adjustment in a person’s life. Once you graduate from college and start working, people tend to lose sight of what they really want in life. More often than not, people become more focused on how to earn money, how to manage their daily expenses, and how to impress or meet the expectations of other people.
Although there are a lot of people who are pursuing their chosen career because they love doing it, there are those who would realize that they never really liked their chosen profession and would end up regretting that decision for a period of time. There are those who would want to quit their job but are unable to do so due to financial matters. Others continue to work in their chosen field because at the back of their minds, they fear that other people would criticize them for not applying what they learned in school.
As a result, they end up complaining, feeling unhappy and feel that something is missing from their lives. What is missing? —– It’s what we call PASSION.
Passion as defined by Wikipedia is a very strong feeling about a person or thing. Passion is an intense emotion, a compelling enthusiasm or desire for something.
In simple terms, I would define Passion as something that we “love” to do for the rest of our lives and doing that specific thing makes us happy and contented.
What do I need to do to find my passion? Actually, finding your true passion in life can be quite hard especially if there are a lot of things that you want to do. But if you really want to know your true passion, there is only one thing that you need to do.
What is that thing? — “Do something that you’ve never done.”
Yes, all you need to do is try something that you’ve never done. Try to dance, try to sing, try to act, try to teach, try to cook, try to travel, try to write, just try different things, one at a time. It may take a while to try a lot of things as there are a lot that we can do, but I am sure that after trying different things, there is surely that “best” thing that will make you feel content and happy.
That will be your passion in life.
Once you’ve found that passion, try to earn a living with it. If you love to sing, dance, or act, then you can try earning a living by performing on stage. If you love to cook, why not start a restaurant business or become a chef. If you love to teach become a teacher. If you love to travel, become a tour guide. If love to write, become a blogger, a script writer or an author. All you need to do is start living your life.
You don’t have to quit your job to pursue your passion. All you need to do while staying in your current job is to find time to go “part-time” with your passion. As they say, “If there’s a will, there’s a way.”
It may not happen overnight, but sooner or later, that part-time job with your passion will grow big and become your life. When that happens, financial concerns, managing daily expenses and meeting the expectations of others will no longer be major issues in life.
“If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.”
