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:

  1. Puppies
  2. Writing
  3. Fitness

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)
