This Is Your Dream Job – Tips To Finding Your True Passion
This article is going to be a little different, which is good thing because it keeps you on your toes. This will be an interview with you as the interviewee. By the end of the interview, you should know your true passion.
Q. What classes do you hate?
Write down the answer to that question. Got it? Good. These subjects are not your passion. Continue with the classes, but eliminate the subjects as your potential passion. Even if a class has a terrible professor, you’re not going to hate the class if it’s your true passion.
Q. What types of shows and books do you like?
See if there is a recurring pattern with the subject matter. If so, that might be your true passion. For instance, if you like to watch true crime shows, you might want to be a detective. And if you always read about whitewater rafting, you might want to be a river guide. These are just examples. You get the point.
Q. What would you do for a career if money wasn’t a factor?
The answer to this question is likely your true passion. If that’s the case, go for it. Don’t worry about the money. The money will come in time. It might be a long journey filled with frustrations but “Smooth seas never made a skilled sailor.” Nobody who has succeeded in a big way has done so with ease.
Q: What do you do on your free time?
If you go cycling, then you might want to work at a bike shop. If you write short stories, then you might want to be a writer. Once again, these are just examples, but these examples were used intentionally because they aren’t often financially rewarding.
As far as writers go, a lot of people think they make big bucks, but that’s only if you’re a big name that consistently has books on the bestseller list. The market is dominated by the top performers. Even if you have one standout book, sales eventually fade. At the same time, that’s the point.
You shouldn’t live your life for material gains. You want to strive for fulfillment. If you do that, the money will eventually follow. For instance, that writer might not earn a lot of money from his books, but he might be paid to promote an event and show up at that event to draw more people.
Q: What did you love doing as a child?
If you spent a lot of time painting, then art is likely your true passion. If you always wanted to help your dad work on his car, then you should strongly consider being a mechanic. If you were obsessed with planes, then you should look into being a pilot.
When you’re a child, outside influences don’t cloud your mind. Whatever you were playing, it was due to a natural excitement you had for whatever you were doing. Your childhood shapes you, and therein is the answer.
Q: What’s your next step?
It should be to stop thinking about following your passion and engaging in that passion in some way. Many people let fear stand in their way and end up with regrets later in life. Don’t be one of those people. Here’s another quote that should apply to many aspects of your life: “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.”
When you do find that passion, others will pick up on your energy and excitement and want to be a part of your world. This will likely lead to many opportunities. If you want to be an architect and end up being an accountant, this won’t happen. There would be no energy and excitement.
Here’s the final question: Do you want to be someone who goes through the motions and regrets the path taken because you focused on money first, or do you want to be someone who followed their passion and lived a life of fulfillment? Choose wisely.
