There is nothing on this Earth as pleasurable as pursuing passion. A man or a woman with a true passion can lose themselves in a hobby that defines them, or find a career that fulfills them for their entire life – if they can figure out a way to make money from it. A person with a passion is a powerful thing – sometimes unstoppable.
But not all of us have a passion. Some people, in fact, go their entire lives never finding something that grabs them. Does that sound like you? Do you sometimes look at people who are super-engaged in their chosen life path and feel a bit of envy, wishing you too could strike a spark that kept on burning?
Finding something you’re completely crazy about doesn’t always come naturally – those that stumble across these burning desires are the fortunate ones. But that doesn’t mean you too can’t find something to hold your attention if you just put yourself out there a little bit more.
Here’s the thing. If a passion has never found its way to you, it might be because you’ve never opened up the door. For instance, many people who are not particularly passionate about anything go their entire lives without trying anything out. They just fall into the mundane routine of living – going to work, getting married, having kids, maybe spending time at the bars on the weekends if single.
But if you just keep doing the same thing day in and day out, how can you ever discover anything new to define you?
You’ll never develop a passion by sitting on your butt thinking about it all day. A legendary guitarist has to pick up a guitar for the first time. An award-winning author has to read interesting books and then try to write a few lines themselves before they start penning novels. If you’re sitting around, waiting for passion to find you, you’re doing it wrong.
Don’t Wait For Passion To Find You
What it comes down to is that you need to actually dig your hands into life and try out different hobbies and small-time interests until something grabs you and holds your attention. Then, once you discover something you are really interested in, you can stop and focus your attention on it, exploring it further.
Doesn’t this makes more sense than just waiting for inspiration to strike?
But the main takeaway is this. You don’t find a passion by thinking; you find one by doing. So get out there and start doing today.Share on Facebook
