When you’re trying to figure out what your life’s passion is, there’ll be no guarantees that it’ll be easy to figure out. The process of searching for your passion is part of the process of life – that’s just how it is. Accept that fact and just get started on the journey of self-discovery. This will naturally lead you to find your passions. Here are three questions to help you begin to understand what passion means to you.
What You Will Learn
1. You will learn three basic questions that will help you begin the process of discovering what might be your life’s passion.
2. You will learn how to start to define and understand what passion is and where it comes from.
3. You will learn how to look at and compare “passion” and “mission.”
Passion is something that will grow and develop from your personal beliefs and experiences, and be enhanced by your skills, and sustained by the value that you’re able to provide to the world. It’s what makes you want to get up in the morning and put all your efforts into improving, enhancing, sharing, and pursuing every day of your life.
Passion is about changing and improving your life to make it more successful, and helping other people in the process. But don’t forget, when trying to find your passion, the accumulation of money is only one type of success.
Here are three questions to help you begin to understand what passion means to you:
Question # 1. Is It A Hobby Or Source Of Income?
I think that when we’re trying to discover our passion, we need to differentiate between a passion for something, like a hobby for example, and a passion for something that can become a serious source of steady income.
They can be one and the same, but I think initially that we should look at them each separately. Also, for our purposes in this article, when trying to find your passion, try not to confuse yourself by believing that a fancy job title, or large paycheck, is what should determine what your passion really is that will make you happy.
Question # 2. Is It A Mission?
I look at passion like a mission. By this, I mean that I consider my passions to be part of my life’s mission. The things that make me want to get up in the morning (passion) and get right to work (mission) are what I consider to be my true calling in life. Everything that has occurred in my life, and every experience that I have had, and everything that I have learned, have led up to this moment in my life – where my passion is now.
Question # 3. Can It Be Multiple Passions?
I also believe that you can and should have multiple passions. Some will make you money, and others won’t. I believe that you probably need both types of passions, which is what makes life interesting. Life is way too short to live through it without a passion for something – hopefully something that is meaningful and productive, and that helps improve the lives of those around us.
When you’re trying to figure out what your life’s passion is, there will be no guarantees that it will be easy to figure out. The process of searching for your passion is part of the process of life – that’s just how it is. Accept that fact. Now go and get started on your journey of self-discovery to find your passion in life.
