How To Figure Out Your Passion?


Recall Your Past

It all starts with your tendencies and excellence points from your childhood. Sit down now, relax, look at your room ceiling, go back for many many years, try to remember when and in which moments of your achievement your parents praised you and what you did. When was the moment that you felt very proud of yourself? I know it might be a blurred memory. I know you might see that they seem so naïve and unrealistic moments. No, I can surely confirm this is the start of the thread without you realizing it. We all sometimes get lost along the path of our life. We sometimes work in fields that have no link to our characters. However, we always have this part in our deep unconsciousness that we usually don’t notice because of various distractions. But eventually, this thing keeps trying to emerge on top in many forms. You may impress your bosses when you perform that part of your passion even partially in your work. You always perform that particular part smoothly, carelessly, involuntarily but ultimately professionally. You might not notice it instantly but your depth pursues it all the time. You will go for it all the time and look for it eagerly unrealizing it. Just you need to focus, you need to remember and analyze your tendencies to figure out where the perfect and excellent part in your capabilities that you can work with is. This way and the effort done to pinpoint your passion is the key to work with passion, to go on and for your work to live forever, and to stand all hardships and the ups and downs you may face.


Where is the problem? And what to do?

Some of us don’t know their passion because they got involved in a job just because it is profitable. They studied their passion field but engaged in another, or even studied something different from their preferences for any reason. This is not bad, but if you do, you just need to love your current job with an accepted percentage at least. This would satisfy your financial needs but won’t satisfy your inner conscience needs. However, it is not awful until you find yourself struggling every morning to get to your current workplace. It is bad when psychologically you refuse it silently, when you lose your ambitions in it and only think about its income. Here you need to consider taking your passion as a profession. To do it, you need patience so you find the right frame and pattern required to perform it and to reach the profitable stage you need so its income becomes sufficient to you.

There is no fancy job. Even hard jobs and professions have their fans that feel the required psychological reward for carrying on and thriving. All fields are interesting and exciting for the right persons. That’s to say, there is no better or worse work. All are fine, they are just different.

When we have a look at some real examples in real life, we find out this is one of the stunning successes in professional life.
