How to find your passion in life

Find-your-passion

There usually comes a point in every individual’s life where    they   have to decide what they want to do, what they want to be and draw out a life plan that suits them best. But a major hurdle here is knowing what to do and how to go about with it.

Finding out what you love is more difficult than it seems. It has to be something that becomes your whole reason for existence. The reason why you wake up in the morning, the reason why you do the things you do; especially if it is regarding your career.

Here are some things you can try to figure out what can become your passion in life:

  1. Find out what motivates you.

Agreed that there are many things that may act as a motivator for your decisions, but what is of utmost importance here is keeping in mind that the thing that motivates you, should not become your deterrent. Something that motivates you should be special only to you and hold special meaning. It should be something that makes you want to try harder no matter how many times you fail.

 

  1. Ask questions to yourself.

Do not be afraid to ask more meaningful and existential questions to yourself. Ask yourself if doing something is actually what you want to do and if you would be able to do that for the rest of your life without any hesitation. Once you are able to answer this, you will be able to not only find out your strengths, but also the weakness which can be worked upon to overcome. You know yourself best and only you will be able to answer them correctly.

 

  1. Check for similar patterns and themes in your answers.

When you find answers to your questions, check if there are any similarities that may point you towards what you want and what makes you truly happy. For e.g., if you enjoyed yourself doing something, and that activity is a part of your answer, try to remember how satisfied you were when you participated in the activity.

 

  1. Give it your best shot.

Once you find out what you feel satisfied doing, try doing it on a more regular basis. Try for internships in that particular field to better research the job. Internships will help you realize if you actually are cut out for that job or not. It will help deliver a better perspective of what you plan to do is truly your calling or if it is more of a hobby.

 

  1. Improve your skills.

Once you know what you want to do, get proper certifications and training in it. The more you learn about it, the better you get. Read as much as you can on it. Try to learn everything there is to it.

 

  1. Never give up.

You tried to do what you thought was best for you, but it didn’t turn out the way you thought it would? So what? Mike Ditka, the former American Football player, once said that, ‘You never really lose until you quit trying.’ So don’t give up just yet. If the plan didn’t work out, formulate a plan B and give it all you have. You might just start on the best journey of your life and learn more about yourself in the process.

It seems like it requires a lot of work and effort, but if this brings you closer to who you truly are, then a little hard work doesn’t seem like a pain, does it? Just be who you are and do what you love to do and that’s half the battle already won.
