How to Discover Your Passion

Do you know what your passion is? Do you know what you want to do with your life?

This next article by Genyfer Spark, describes some questions you can ask yourself to discover your true life passion. The inspiration to write this came to her as she describes:

“It was at a recent presentation I gave to a group of high school seniors at Bay Area High School about success and how to get it. I realized how so many don’t even know what their passion is-that is their calling, or their life’s purpose.”

To Your Life Passion!

How to Discover Your Passion

By Genyfer Spark

I discovered this, when I asked the students to write down on a blank card I placed on their desks prior to our discussion, if they could be anything or achieve anything with no limitations, what would it be? In collecting the cards and discussing the responses. I realized many had literally written down: “I don’t know” or had written down something that was not truly their passion, and wrote down what ever came to mind to fill in the blank. I estimated 60 percent of the class did not know what their passion was let alone give it much thought up until I presented them with the question.

This to me was disheartening, as I knew from as early as I can remember what my passion was; I just didn’t know how I was going to achieve it. I can’t imagine the sense of emptiness one must feel in not knowing what their passion is. As it is our passion that inspires and motivates us to become the greatest we can be, not only for ourselves, but for the benefit of society as a whole.

According to Wikipedia: Passion is an intense emotion, compelling feeling, enthusiasm, or desire for something. The term is also often applied to a lively or eager interest in or admiration for a proposal, cause, or activity.

Therefore, part of finding out what our passion is, is asking ourselves what is our greatest desire? That is the one thing that creates an overwhelming abundance of enthusiasm to the point it brings you to action?

In finding your passion, you have to be completely honest with yourself and start to look back over your life and ask the following questions:

• What is the one thing I have done or do that always gives me an abundance of joy and when doing it, I can’t seem to get enough of it?

Answer:________________________

After answering this question, ask and answer the following questions:

1. Would you do this without pay?

2. When you do this thing, does it make you feel a complete sense of joy, peace, and give you an abundance of new ideas as to how to do it better?

3. Do you think about this thing even when you are not doing it?

4. When you do this thing does it give you more energy, rather than make you feel exhausted?

5. In doing this thing. When you receive rejections, negative comments or experience extreme challenges in doing this thing, are you more energized to do better at mastering it as opposed to giving up on it?

If you answered yes to all of these questions, this is your passion!
