Today, we’re talking about passion. As always, let’s start with a definition for a better understanding of the context of the word.
Passion is defined as “strong and barely controllable emotion”. This emotion motivates us to do things, and it’s why some people are known for “that one thing” they talk about. Passion leads to a sense of purpose, so that’s why today we’re going to give you 10 questions to ask yourself to start discovering your passion. We will also remind you that the things you’re passionate about can change overtime, so don’t get down on yourself if you discover that your purpose isn’t what you thought (that’s life, after all.)
Write down your answers to these 10 questions:
- What is something in your life right now that you look forward to, or that you will make sure you have time to do that isn’t already a requirement (such as work, home care, etc).
- If money weren’t an obstacle, what would you be doing right now?
- Who inspires you?
- What are some things that you do daily that you don’t enjoy doing?
- What are some skills or hobbies that you have that you do enjoy?
- What is the one thing keeping you from doing what makes you truly happy?
- If you had the opportunity to go after the one thing that lights a fire in you, but you had to downsize your lifestyle, would you still do it?
- What does your ideal day look like?
- What is one thing that would make you proud of yourself if you did it?
- What are three things you want to be remembered for?
Since this is an activity based article, we won’t keep you too long. Please remember, you’re human. You have been asked “what do you want to be when you grow up” for years now, and at one point before you become who you are today and went through the things you’ve endured, someone told you to make a decision on what you wanted to do. It’s completely okay if you find that what you’re doing was ONCE a passion of yours, and now it’s just a hassle. That means you’ve grown or changed and change is the law of life.
