Passion grows and develops from your personal beliefs and experiences. Passion is enhanced by your skills and sustained by the values that you are able to provide to the world. It is 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 and helping other people in the process. But don’t forget, when trying to find your passion, the money is only one type of success.
Is It A Hobby Or Source Of Income?
I think as you are trying to discover your passion, you need to separate between having 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 the same, but I think in the beginning you should look at each separately. 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.
Is It A Mission?
I see passion as a mission. 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) is 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.
Can It Be Multiple Passions?
I also believe that you can and should have multiple passions. Some will make you money, and others will not. I believe that you probably need both types of passions, which is what makes life interesting. Life is way too short to live though 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 are 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.
