What are you passionate about?

Backstory

I recently did a web search for this particular topic.  I was trying to get an idea of what was already out there to answer this question.

Turns out, this is a pretty popular topic.  It has been searched for A LOT — mostly in relation to interview questions  and  essays.

Then it got me wondering, why do people need help trying to figure out what they are passionate about?

What is Passion?

Passion is one of those words I never felt like I needed to look up in a dictionary to gain a better understanding.

It’s a feeling.

It’s a mood.

It’s a moment.

Passion is not really something one decides to have…Passion either shows up or it doesn’t. 

Passion is something that wakes you up in the middle of good sleep to  give you a call to action. It sends you down a rabbit hole of knowledge searches to find the solution in the wee hours of the morning.

Passion is what drives and motivates us to ultimately realize our purpose.

How do you identify your passion? 

This is a surprisingly popular question. It’s pretty easy to identify your passion once you sit down and really reflect on activities that brought you joy throughout life.

When I started to answer the question for myself, the answer was obvious and had been a running theme throughout my entire life.

In a broad scope, I have always wanted to help people.  This has consistently been a source of content. 

If I zoom in a little more, I would notice that I was my happiest when I would bring people together and watch them light up with the same emotions.  For example, I loved having get-togethers.  There have been some really cool and interesting people in my life.  It only made sense to bring those people together and allow them to experience this ultimate culmination of happiness I was privy to on a daily basis.

If I zoomed in even further, I started to notice that the true joy was when I was providing food to those who did not readily have the access to a meal.  Just the joy and gratitude in those experiences are enough to fill me up for eternity. 

And THAT is passion. 

What are you passionate about?

Here are some points to keep in mind as you reflect on what it is that you are passionate about:

  • Broad Picture – What makes you content (What do you like?)
  • Zoom In – What makes you happy? (What makes you smile
  • Zoom In Further – What brings you joy? (What energizes you to get up and go?!)

Keeping this information in mind will help you move towards articulating your passion. 

Once you have found your passion, your purpose will start to come into focus and goals will become so much more fulfilling once they are accomplished!

Now, go out and live your passion!!
