I often talk about following your passion, but it has come to my attention that some people are slightly confused as to what their passion is.
Let’s help you discover your passion.
I am going to give you 7 tips on discovering your passion.
Discovering Your Passion Tip #1: What Would You Do If…
Just imagine if you had complete financial freedom.
What would you do?
How would you keep your mind and body busy?
However you would honestly answer that question could probably be considered your top passion.
Discovering Your Passion Tip #2: Take Short Courses
I love this method of finding your passion because at the same time, you are learning other skills you may be able to use at some later point in time.
You could find online courses or courses at a local community college. Just sign up for various courses and you will surely run across something you love.
- Public speaking
Discovering Your Passion Tip #3: Hang Around People Who Are Following Their Passion
In some cases, the people we are around hold us back from truly following our passion. When you have an idea, do you feel they try to tell you every negative possibility or do they support you.
I suggest you find people who are following their passion and create a friendship. It doesn’t mean following their passion, but learning how they found their passion and how they proceeded to “feed” that passion.
Discovering Your Passion Tip #4: Follow Your “Gut”
The voices are everywhere… People telling us what to do, when and how to do it. But, is your gut instinct telling you to go a different direction?
If we were to interview people who followed the paths of the voices, we would find a big percentage of people doing something the dislike or even hate. And on the “flip side,” the ones who followed their gut are happy and satisfied.
Discovering Your Passion Tip #5: Let Morality Guide You
Many entrepreneurs have built successful businesses based on their moral compass. Maybe you have inner moral aspirations such as:
- Helping others lose weight
- Animal protection
- Or fossil fuels
Take a look at your moral being and consider the fact that your passion may be hidden within.
Discovering Your Passion Tip #6: Put Passion Into Everything You Do
You see, passion is positive energy and it is a contagious thing. So by making each and everything you do passion filled, the passion will “rub off” into your mental processes helping you find your “absolute” passion.
So do this…
- Get out of bed with passion
- Brush your teeth with passion
- Drive rush hour with passion (yea, that’s can be a tough one)
If you don’t believe you can do it with passion, outsource or delegate it.
Discovering Your Passion Tip #7: Put It To The Test
Okay, you have the thought that a certain thing may be your passion…
Instead of just jumping in the Ocean with no life jacket, test it. Keep your job and give 2-3 hours each day to your passion business.
If, after 1 or 2 months you still feel that passion, Go For IT!
One other thing I must mention… Just because it is your passion does not mean everything will flow smoothly. The key is, if you are passionate about it, when roadblocks arise, you feel such a love for the passion, quitting or giving up is not an option. You will do everything in your power to overcome obstacles.
