ds anI see a lot of people asking this same question over and over again.
I was one of them.
But over the course of time, if I’ve learned one thing about passion, it’s this,
Passion is not something you have, it’s something that you cultivate and grow over a period of time.
So, here are one way to find out your “passion”
What do you like to do?
At one point of time, I thought my passion was human body and doing operations. So, I had plans on doing M.B.B.S in college.
But after taking Science (Bio major) in +2, my realized it’s definitely not what I want to do in life.
Then, I started to gravitate towards more creative field — graphic design, photography, videography, sketching, strength training, break dancing, parkor, swimming, Fifa, writing, poker, etc., but I thought that they would be best suited as a “hobby.”
So I treated them as such.
It was not until late 2013 that I started thinking about those creative fields as a viable career path. But we’ll talk about that in later post.
What are your strengths?
Can also solve complex equations and algorithms faster than normal? Are you good in talking with other people and convincing them? Are you good at leading a group of people towards a goal? Can you present your ideas infront of a mass of people with ease? Do others say that you are a creative genius?
Whatever it might be, figure it out.
What do people pay for?
If you want to make a living doing what you love (a.k.a your passion), you have to first find out what people pay for. Their needs, their desires, their problems, list them all out.
Now mix and match — What you like to do with your strengths, and then see if that combination can solve a problem that people pay a good amount for.
Rank the combinaitons according to the which excites you the most.
Then give each combination a try for at least 3 months.
All the best!
