FINDING YOUR PASSION, AND WHAT TO DO NEXT.

 

Truth be told, I was never an ambitious kid and because I had no clue of what I wanted to do when I was older, up until a few years ago I didn’t feel passionate about anything in particular.

Fast forward to when I discovered this blogging thing, and the journey started. In today’s post I wanted to talk about ways to find your passion, and what to do next once you’ve found it. Which is usually always the hardest bit, isn’t it?

 

HOW TO FIND IT

  • Explore different things.
    We never know what our passion in life could be until we’ve tried it. So try everything (well, most things). Try the things you’ve always wanted to, and try the things that you’ve been curious about but didn’t quite know how to start. It’s a process of elimination, and open your eyes up to lots of different new exciting worlds.

 

  • What sets your soul on fire?
    What makes you get out of bed on a morning? Apart from your alarm, obviously. Asking yourself questions such as what your dream job would look like are super helpful, and you’ll discover what you actually *want* to do and spend your time on. We are have those topics that we feel so passionate about we could talk the hind legs of a donkey, that’s your thing.

 

  • Take the pressure off.
    Remember, this may take a while and that is totally okay. For most of us, we aren’t going to hop out of bed on a morning with a overnight miracle, so take it easy. It will happen.

 

WHAT TO DO NEXT

 

  • Dedicate time to it.
    To get a master at something, you have to put the time in. Schedule specific parts of your week where you can hone your craft, and practice practice practice.

 

  • Let it surprise you.
    We like to think that we know what’s going on, but really, life always has a way of surprising us, and don’t forget that. If your passion is yoga, try different classes. If it’s blogging, pause and ask yourself what kind of content you want to create more of. We don’t always have to have it all together. It’s a beautiful thing to never stop exploring.

 

  • Make it long-term.
    Most likely, you want to make this into your full-time job and create income from it. For me, I’m as far as knowing that I want to blog full-time, but I don’t have an exact plan of a timescale on how long it’s going to take (that’s something for me to work on in my own time).
    But I know that whether it’s in 5 or 10 years, it will happen because I am extremely passionate about it and I will make it happen regardless.

 

How did you find your passion?

  • I was the same when I was younger. I never had the clear vision of what I want to do in life and where I want to go. Since I really started to listen to myself and realize what makes me truly happy I now know what I want. x

    • That’s so awesome! 🙂 How wonderful that you can listen to yourself and know the way!

  • I’m still waiting to find my passion. There’s been things that I have thought I loved but get bored of a few months down the line. Lol I’m too indecisive, I guess. But, like you said, it’s a process of elimination!

    I’ve never really had a clear vision of what I wanted to do, but luckily I’ve discovered a few passions along the way – it’s just like you say you need to try and few different things and you’ll stumble upon it eventually!

    • When I was younger it was my least favourite question ‘what do you want to do when you’re older’! I felt like I was the only one who didn’t know x

  • These are all such good tips, I really enjoyed reading this post!

  • I love your blog, it’s so inspiring! About the post, I think I’ve already found my passion, now it’s time for more difficult part: doing something about that 😉 Unfortunately, it’s a long process and it’s not so easy to live your dreams and turn your passion into a full-time job. But I’ll try anyway!

    P.S. Is it possible for you to add a login option login from WordPress account? It would be much easier. But it’s only a suggestion, of course! 🙂

  • This was such a lovely read! I too want to make an income from blogging and although it is ambitious at the moment I don’t want to give up. I absolutely love blogging and the community that surrounds it. I love having a voice that isn’t too draining as I can type when I want and not have to feel direct social pressure. It’s so great when you discover something you truly love and although I often feel like giving up on my dream this post has made me hold onto hope! xx
