I have been advised to follow my passion and it will lead to “greater things”. However, I have lots of loves but very few passions, very few things that I love so much it would go ahead of my family.
The picture on the side appeared when I searched “lists”. This is exactly what I create whenever I sit down to start writing about my potential passion.
How do people find their passion? I asked my friends and many of them told me it is the one thing they can do all day without ever getting bored. This seemed like a good idea until I thought back through my career and there have been lots of jobs that never bored me but definitely did not fall under “greater things”.
Another group told me that they focused on what they know how to do. This stumped me because I can do lots of things and have never been afraid to try new things. In fact, there are very few things that I feel like I could not learn.
I am going to keep looking. When “passion” is discussed, it generally implies complete devotion to it. How many people are truly passionate about only one thing?
If you are reading this, do you have one passion that rules all else? Or are you pulled in multiple directions? Has your passion led you to “greater things”? An interested seeker wants to know. 🙂
