You are often in that state of mind, often referred to as “flow,” where you can lose track of the world and time, losing yourself in the task at hand. Work does not work as many people refer to it, but something that is fun and interesting and exciting. It’s not a “job” but a passion. And if you never put in the effort to find what you’re passionate about, you’re right: such a thing will never be possible. But dare to dream, dare to imagine the possibilities, and dare to actually search for what you love, and it is not only a possibility but a probability.
Many have lost their passion along life’s very busy highway. Many have replaced their passion for helping others find their passion, so is that maybe their passion? This time period is an amazing time to experience your spiritual awakening, but there’s also a crushing reminder that nobody is coming to save you. What you want to do with your life. Who you want to become. And if you want to stop along the highway and savor the journey and stop rushing for the destination.
Ask yourself: Is there something you already love doing?
Do you have a hobby, or something you loved doing as a child, but never considered it as a possibility? If there’s already something you love doing, you’re ahead of the game. Now you just need to research the possibilities of making money from it.
Ask around, and surf for possibilities
Ask other people for ideas. See what others have discovered as their passions. Look all over the Internet for ideas. The more possibilities you find, the more likely your chances of finding your true passion.
Do as much research as possible
Know as much about your passion as possible. If this has been a passion for a while, you may have already been doing this. At any rate, do even more research. Read every website possible on the topic, and buy the best books available. Find other people, either in your area or on the Internet, who do what you want to do for a living, and quiz them about the profession.
