Do you believe that you can find your passion? Or does your passion find you?
I’ve searched and searched and… literally google searched ‘how to find my passion’. I have decided that my passion found me. Or maybe it was there all along. I just forgot where to look.
Passion, by definition is a “strong and barely controllable emotion” (thanks, google). This term has a positive connotation (positive feeling) versus the negative term, ‘obsessed’ (negative feeling) but I’ll explain another day!
I am passionate about three things:
I have strong and barely controllable emotions towards puppies, writing, and fitness. When I spend time playing with puppies, writing, or working out I am 100% engaged, completely focused, and peacefully content. I enjoy these three things.
According to the Disc Interest Inventory, your personality is naturally set at as early 8 years young! This means that what you were passionate about at age 8, you’re likely passionate about at any age. Interesting. At age 8 I loved puppies, I was proudest when I wrote a good story, and I spent all of my free time doing flips or playing games on my trampoline. Those are my passions.
There are several ways to uncover your passion. Here are 3 methods to help you remember what you truly love to do:
- Does it pass the Saturday-morning test? (Would you wake up early on a Saturday morning to do it)?
- What did you love to do when you were eight years old? (I loved jumping on the trampoline)
- What are your 3 favorite hobbies? (one that makes you money, one that keeps you healthy, one that is philanthropic/volunteer)
