We all know someone who seems to have it all together. They’re happy and successful and are everything you want to be. You could say they have found their calling in life. *cue the applause.* Coming across people like this can make us re-evaluate our life and wonder what on earth we're passionate about! Although finding out what you're passionate about is no easy feat, it is indeed possible! You just have to be ready for it to take time and some effort! So, how can you follow in the footsteps of someone who seems to have it all together if you don’t know what you're passionate about? Or worse, don't even know how to start figuring out what you're passionate about? Take a deep breath and make some time for you. Spend some time with yourself to evaluate what you're all about. A great place to start is with this list!
1. What's your “Why?”
No matter who you are, there will always be days when you question what you’re doing. The closer you remain to WHY you chose to start your new role, course, career or hobby the more likely you are to CHOOSE to love it every day, come what may. That’s right, loving what you’re doing, is a choice despite how you feel today or tomorrow. Whether you’re in your dream job or not you need to find out your WHY for being there, and use what is available to you to always work towards your goals.
2. What brings you joy?
Keep a running list of the activities that bring you joy. Find out what kinds of activities bring you joy and incorporate them into your life as much as possible. Sometimes the things that we think will bring us the most joy can be the scariest to try. Let go of fear and try something new. In doing so, you’ll soon discover the things you're passionate about.
3. What are your talents?
Remember that focusing on talents won't necessarily lead you to earn more money, but focusing on your talents and what you're good at can make you happier and help you live a more fulfilling life. Making a list of the things you're good at, despite how much or how little income they generate, can help you connect with yourself and what you’re really about. Creating a talent list can help you uncover all the big and small things that make your heart sing. Through time, this list will tell you a lot about yourself and can help you uncover your true passions.
4. Figure out how to KEEP MOVING
For most of us, finding out what your passion is, takes time. Do something every day (no matter how small) to keep yourself moving forward and closer towards finding out your true passions.
5. Challenge yourself EVERY DAY.
The results of challenging yourself can surprise you in a very good way! Taking on new projects, jobs or courses that you are unfamiliar with (be sure to check out our courses here) can allow you to grow and discover new talents and passions. YAY!
