5 Tips on Finding your Passion!
It is difficult to focus on finding your passion while you are
trying to focus on paying the rent, car payment, car insurance,
etc. However, it is important for people not to just show up to a
job everyday with no passion or remain
in a career that seems to go nowhere. Everyone was
created with a specific purpose; however, it is up to each
individual to find and fulfill that purpose. In order
to find that passion you're craving, follow the guidelines listed
1. Understand that it will take time to discover your
passion and shape your vision.
There are too many people who get frustrated and give up on
finding their true passion. Realize that this process will involve
trial and error. Learn from Generation Y. Generation Y

look forward to your vision and future. While working jobs
that are not that pleasant, remember it is temporary and you can
improve your situation. It does not matter where you are, it only
matters where you are trying to go and how you plan to get
2. Do your research and explore.
Let's be honest. You cannot expect to discover anything
without exploring different options. Get out and do your
RESEARCH! Research can involve talking with others in areas
that interest you. Browsing and surfing the Internet.
Socializing and networking with co-workers and friends. Get
out and network at job fairs, business conventions, seminars,
social events, and conferences. Do not under estimate the
power of networking!
3. Establish a plan with main goals. Include items that
can hinder you.
Planning is necessary to achieve any greatness. However,
realizations of plans are subject to change and there is nothing
wrong with plans that change. Change can be good and
advantageous. Life happens and brings about many unexpected
issues to handle, when this happens… adjust accordingly and keep
working towards your goal.
Goals are necessary in any plan to measure your progress.
Keep in mind goals are not final and can be changed and
restructured to fit the given situation. Give yourself the
flexibility to strive for excellence.
4. Take action based on your plan.
Now that you have a plan it is time to use it. Divide your
main goals into sub-goals so you can work slowly to achieve your
main goals. You'll find setting smaller goals will ultimately
lead you toward your main goals.
5. Track your progress.
It is important to track your progress; document and remember
your small successes. Small successes can lead to
larger successes. Tracking your progress can be informal.
Grab a spiral notebook and start writing.
Remember you can find your true passion and purpose in life but
it is going to require patience, diligence, and lots of work!
