Aug 17, 2007
If you want to find true fulfillment and happiness in life you need to find your passion. You can't possibly be fulfilled if you are spending a third of your waking day working for something that neither interests nor inspires you. Doing something that you are passionate about gives you that edge, it is like having a fireball that drives you forward in your endeavor. It is easy to see that if you are passionate about something the odds of your success are greatly increased.

If you want to find your passion it is all around you. The clues are in the very things that you may already be finding enjoyment out of. Here are some simple tips to help you find your passion.

Many people think that their passions are best left for the weekend. Your passion needn't be your hobby that you enjoy in your spare time. Sure sometimes we need to be doing what is in our hand, that is what we are skilled at or trained in for our work but many people who have had a passion have found ways to turn it into a rewarding career. Many great businesses were started by people who were passionate about what they were doing, maybe you enjoy kids or have a hobby that you spend considerable time in, they can all be turned into business. Why not earn a living doing something that you love and enjoy.

Where do you enjoy spending your time? The key to unlocking your passions in life can often simply be found in all the areas you would like to or are currently spending considerable time devoted to. If you find that you can do an activity and time just disappears then they are some of the clues to finding what you are passionate about.

The first step to unlocking what your passions are is to simply write down all the things that you enjoy spending time doing or would like to spend time doing. Be as creative as you would like, maybe some of the things that you would love to do one day is just out of your financial reach as a hobby but you could actually pursue it as a career instead.

Once you have your list of passions write out why you are passionate and enthusiastic about it. Be comprehensive, the more enthusiastic and passionate about something you are the more likely that you will be motivated and driven to succeed in it.

Now rank your list from the one your most passionate about to the least. Now its simply a matter of finding our more information on how you can now turn this passion into something that you can earn money from. After all life is short why not spend your days doing something that just is immensely rewarding and fulfilling for you. You don't have to do what most people do and that is work in a job that just provides a paycheck. Pursue your passions and you will find your quality of life in all areas improve immensely.
