How To Begin Finding Your Passion

Ever felt like something in your life is just missing? You wake up every day chasing your daily routines, but after the sun comes down you go right back to feeling empty? Well if this is you, you are not alone. This is the way a lot of people feel around the world and the only thing that can feel that void is finding your true calling and passion. Well, now the question is, how exactly do you find your passion?  How can you tell what you should spend the rest of your life doing? The answer is by digging deep, and taking action! Simply thinking about what your passion is over and over again will not help you find it. What I mean by digging dip and taking action is thinking about what were some of your childhood passion? What do you have strong emotions concerning? Is there any type of change you would like to see happen? Is there an event that has happened in your life and you want to make sure no one else experiences that? Is there something missing in the world that you would like to see happen? Asking yourself these deep questions will help you kick start and reverse engineer where to start taking action.

Take myself, for example, figuring out what I wanted in life was one of the hardest questions I have ever tried to answer. I have cried about this, gone into deep depression, prayed to GOD, but nothing changed until I took action. My mother always wanted me to be a nurse but working in the hospital, I figured that although I liked interacting with the patients I didn’t like the role of a nurse. So as I was going through the motions feeling uninspired, I finally asked myself some questions. What do I even like doing? What do I feel the happiest when I am doing it? Whats something I wish I could do but sounds like a dream?  Your fears in your mind will always talk you out of what you want the most, but that’s what you have to listen to.

After asking myself all these questions, I slowly began figuring out who I was. I always loved speaking, so because of that, I decided to take a risk, ditch nursing and apply for a sales position at LA Fitness. I never knew anything about sales, but just knowing I liked speaking to people was enough. As I started to learn sales, I realized I loved it, and I was actually good at it, but there was something different about my sales method, it was motivational. I would motivate every client that sat in front of me, some clients cried before purchasing a membership, telling me how I encouraged them. I got promoted, stayed at the company, then left to work at a startup company. I realized I also loved sales not only on a retail level but as it applies to building a business. It felt so right that I knew I finally found something I liked that would also bring me income. Now the next question is was what is my purpose? I realized that every time I met a stranger it felt good interacting with them, just to tell them it would be ok and that they have to keep pushing. This was the part of me that I was willing to give the world, so this was my nitch. Even if I wasn’t getting paid for it, I would still do it because It made me feel so good. The point is that everyone is special in their own way, and if you put a little more thought into finding who the authentic version of you is, of course, mixed with some risk and experimentation, then you will find your passion.

Now as fancy as this story sounds, believe me when I say the actual journey to finding these answers was depressing but it taught me a lot. It taught me a couple of tips to help someone else possibly find their passion.

1. Don’t invest time in things you dislike.

I hear a lot of people complaining about what they hate while still doing it which is very ineffective. The time you spend doing what you hate you could be doing something you love. Spend more time answering the question “ what do I like to do?”. That way you experiment with enough different hobbies, you most definitely will find something you love. There is power in realizing that you have control over your life. If you want something, you have the power to change it. Don’t let your circumstances prevent you from finding your true self. The key when you find what makes you feel good is doing it every day with a lot of enthusiasm. Give life to anything you do, and you will slowly start to ignite more creative ideas and you just never know what could happen. Be ready to make a complete change in your habits, lifestyle, and be ready to get focused. 

2. Look at the things you love talking about or teaching people.

Do you find yourself doing different things but doing it the same way? For example, I had a friend who always spends her time watching makeup videos. When she was at school she would watch these videos instead actually paying attention in class. She often found herself buying more makeup products to enhance her skills. Then after that, It got to a point where she started doing it for free. After a while of doing it for free, she started teaching me how to get better at it, so we had to have that conversation. I had to openly ask her to start investing more time doing that because that’s what she loves. Spend your time doing the things that light you up while you speak about it, but something that makes others feel good too. You never know who how valuable your skill sets might be.

3. Have a serious conversation with yourself, then start.

The best decision you will ever make is finding your passion early and getting started now. It took you this long to finally get here what’s the point of lagging the process. It’s time to start taking small steps and taking action steps. Action steps could start by doing one thing that brings you closer to the bigger goal every day. It’s going to make you so happy because its something you actually love. It probably won’t require you spend money doing what you love or finding a passion project. And even if it does cost money, if it makes you happy then you can put a price on that. Give yourself a reason behind waking up every day because once you want to give up, you will always be able to rely on the “ why” what is it all for, and why do you do it! This will keep you motivated to keep chasing your dreams and following your passion

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s
    both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I came across this during my search for something concerning this.

    I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance is very
    much appreciated.
