• What To Do If You Don’t Know Your Passion


     

    Abstract:
     

    People often tell me they don’t think they even have a passion. This happened so often, I started offering an affordable once-off session to help people find their passion, and I know for a fact that everyone has at least one.
     

    It’s not your fault if you haven’t identified – yet – what lights you up. Your mission today is to learn what to do if you don’t know your passion.

    Task 1: Learn what a passion is

     

    One reason why you might not know your passion is that you’re looking for the wrong thing. Maybe you assume that a passion needs to be something you’re innately talented at, that you’re very good at, and that you’ll turn into your source of income.
     

    But that’s not what passion is about. You’re forgiven for thinking so – the internet is full of people promising to teach you how to turn your passion into a business, and there’s nothing wrong if you want to do this. However, the definition of a passion is simply something that lights you up. Follow the joy – nothing else.

    Task 2: If you don’t know your passion

     

    Another reason why you might not know your passion is that you’re looking in the wrong places. Many people assume that a passion needs to be a creative pursuit, but that’s not true. Rather, a passion is any activity that gives you profound joy. It could be a field of study or a sport, an activity or indeed an art.
     

    Others assume that you need to have one, true passion, but that’s not true for everyone. Lots of people are multi-passionates, or “scanners”. They have multiple, changing passions throughout their lives. These are still completely valid passions though.
     

    If you need more help with identifying yours, consider booking a Find Your Passion session with me. It’s worth knowing what you should prioritise in your life, knowing what is guaranteed to bring you joy independent of your job, relationship and other “outside” factors.

    Task 1: The big question: Hobby or income?

     

    I talk about this a lot, so I’ll keep it brief here: Please don’t feel as though you “should” make your passion your income. You don’t have to be a pro to make it your priority.
     

    Our society values material success and money. Obviously, it also tells you that in order for a passion to be important, it needs to be your income or business.
     

    I say, joy and love are why you’re on this planet, not material success. So if your passion lights you up, that’s your reason to make it a priority. Whether you want to make it your income, is secondary.

    Task 2: You’ve found your passion – now nourish it

     

    Passions are much like being in love. At the beginning, you pour your all into it, you can’t wait to get there every day and it makes you outrageously happy. Over time, there might be days when you don’t feel like picking it up at all, and it can become annoyingly difficult.
     

    Just like a good relationship, a passion deserves the effort it takes to make it work. Once the “first flush” is over, establish a routine – set times and also a budget dedicated to your passion. Don’t make your passion fight for your attention with everything else in your life. Instead, prepare a space it’ll occupy, whether you feel like it that day or not.
     

    Reach out to others who share your passion. There’s nothing more inspiring! If you do make money with your passion, protect that playful space where you just fool around enjoying yourself. Don’t ever let your passion become a painful chore.
