I often encounter people who ask me this question.
How do I find my passion?
My answer is simple and somewhat confronting. I tell them their passion is a representation of who they are. So if you don’t know who you are, you’ll never find your passion. It’s that simple.
Why you’re not finding your passion
You’re not finding your passion because you’re overcomplicating it. And because you think it’s so complicated you distract yourself from finding out what is your passion.
Fortunately, it can be pretty easy to start finding your passion.
What do you spend the most time doing?
- What do you google?
With the internet, we have access to all our interests. We all use google. What do you use google for?
Football? Marketing? or cupcakes? it doesn’t matter. But it’s a good determinator of what your passion might look like.
- What do you read about?
When you read something, what is it?
Are you into fashion? spiritual books? or comics.
- What do you talk about?
When you are with friends and are not gossiping or talking shit. What do you love talking about the most?
How to start?
Just start doing something. And do it consistently.
Just doing something looks like this:
- Read the 5 most important books on the subject you like talking about most.
- Start an online platform and write (blog) and speak (podcast or video) about the subject.
- Google experts on your subject. Reach out to these people, check their content and read what they are doing.
It’s really that simple. However, we make it complicated because of our irrational fears of failure and rejection. What results in procrastination and distraction.
Start executing today, because not finding your passion isn’t the problem.
