Most self-help books would tell you that if you want to be successful you should follow your passion. If you don’t like your job quit and do something you are passionate about. Question is how do we recognize our passion? Well, sit down take a deep breathe and find your passion! Easier said than done. How many of us have the luxury to quit our jobs one fine day and go behind our “true calling”?
Some of us are very creative and develop a strong desire to create amazing things and follow their passion at a very young age. While most of us are still figuring out…and what if we don’t find one? Going back to self help books, Does that mean we will never be successful?
Get this, firstly it’s okay to not have a passion. I mean, you would have one but it’s okay if you don’t know what it is.
Secondly, You need to keep doing something for a long time to see if you develop a strong desire to pursue it for a lifetime. Passion will not come to you overnight.
Last but not least, passion is not always about doing something you really like but really liking something you do..and success comes to those who are best at what they do..
In that sense a modest 9-5 job can also become your passion if you can find 2 to 3 things you really like about your job.. if not anything it will help you overlook the things you dislike, perhaps the snobby boss 😉
