Time and again, the question of your passion turns up, either in your mind or during your conversations.
What is my passion?
How do I answer whether I am passionate about this?
Most of the times, one’s not able to clearly state the answer for these questions.
The answer’s simple, yet complicated at the same time. Before we go on to find passion, I also think that there’s never just one thing when it comes to being passionate about something – there could be – but, usually there’s more.
Before you answer these questions for yourself, also understand to not limit yourself to just one thing and think this is my passion.
Life is about experimentations; you never know what strikes how and what doesn’t.
Coming back to finding passion, let’s define how any human being can tell what they’re passionate about.
Let’s break it down into the following categories :
Usually, we list down what our strengths are and what are weaknesses are, and depending on that, we usually pick the strengths because we are good at those things, and follow that course and simultaneously improve ourselves at it too.
Do you love doing that thing? Do you feel like you could do it all day, every day? Do you feel if you didn’t take a vacation or worked on weekends too, would it feel the same?
C. It’s Not Work
If there is ever a feeling that it feels like work and that there is a life beyond it too, then probably its not the same. On the other hand, if you feel it’s a part of your life, then you can immerse yourself into it and enjoy the process like how.
D. Retirement and Money out of the Picture
Most important of all points, to define passion and to realize if it’s truly your passion or not, take “retirement” and “money” out of the picture, would you still do it?
If you can answer/relate to all of the above pointers, you can then define what you’re truly passionate about and whether what you think is your passion or not.
Now what you can do is, correlate these questions with whatever you’re doing now, and see if you’re able to answer for yourself or not. The answer is within you and no one can help you out with it except you.
