3 Tips for Finding Your Passion

Finding your passion in life could be something that feels either insanely easy for you, or like a mystery that you’re never sure you’ll uncover. If you’re struggling to find your passion and direction in your life, then there are a few easy tips that you can try that will help point you in the right direction. You can sit down with a piece of paper and begin brainstorming ideas. You can look to your mentors in life and ask them how they got to where they are. You can also just dive into an idea that you’ve had on the backburner and see if it’s really for you. Finding your passion doesn’t have to be something that you do just once in your life, as we grow and change our passions can change too, so be sure to always check in with yourself.

Whenever I’m stuck about anything, I like to sit down with a blank piece of paper and write down whatever comes to mind. You can easily do this about anything in life, but it works really well for trying to find your passion. Ask yourself prompting questions, like if you had enough money you never had to work another day in your life – what would you do? Keep journaling until you get all your thoughts out clearly and you can see some potential ideas for passions you’d like to explore further.

Ask Around
Asking people you respect, such as mentors or just friends or family with careers you admire can be a great way to shed some light on what may work for you as a passion. You can even go as far to ask how they ended up where they did and what their process was to finding their passion. Sometimes it’s also nice to ask people what they consider your strengths to be and to check in with yourself to see whether those things line up with what you also think about yourself.

Just Give it a Go
Sometimes we’re so focused on the perfect timing for things that we don’t ever move forward with ideas. If there’s something you’ve thought could be a great passion of yours for a while, but you’ve not made any steps to move forward with it, you really need to ask yourself why not? We only get one life and so the longer you spend waiting around, the less time you’ll get to actually try out this new thing. If it doesn’t turn out to be what you thought, or your passion, it doesn’t matter. At least you know and can mentally move on to the next thing. Or you may find your calling, and you’ll be so glad you tried. Either way, you’ll be moving yourself forward in life and that’s never a bad thing.
