Discovering your Passion: Finding your Purpose
Discovering your passion and finding your purpose in life is indeed a hard thing to do.
If you are feeling lost and unfulfilled, you are not alone.
Some people even find their true purpose in life after their 60s. With this in mind, it is never too late to discover and find your passion. It can either be as simple as writing, painting, singing, dancing, whether you want to adopt fur babies, start a donation drive, scholarship campaign; whatever in this world that can make you feel fulfilled.
Here are some tips that might help you on your way.
Exploring Your Interests
Take some time to reflect on the things that excites you the most. Ask yourself what makes you happy? Are you adventurous? Do you love gaming? Does reading makes you happy? Do you feel fulfillment when writing your thoughts? Is dancing your talent and you want to share it in this world? Do you want to lift or just make money?
These are some of the questions that might help you discover what you want. Once you have identified your interest, start exploring. Immerse yourself in that activity. You can start by watching/studying how other people do it and try doing it by yourself. You can even find a mentor on that field if there is.
Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone
Honestly, this can really be intimidating. However without this, you can really never find your true self. Try new things and start taking risks. Attend seminars/workshops aligning with your interest. Take dancing workshops, singing lessons, swimming lessons.
By doing so, you might discover something about yourself.
Use your Talents
Find ways to use your talent and turn it into something. If you are good with words and you are confident, try public speaking. You are good with gaming and you want to entertain people online? Try streaming. Good with cooking and you want to innovate? Introduce a new dish and sell this to people; you can even join cooking competitions if you want.
Turning your Passion into Purpose
Find a career that aligns with your passion. Start a side hustle related to your interest. Once you find that sweet spot, you’ll discover income generating activities that will no longer feel like a work because you are enjoying it.
It might not be your purpose in life, but you’ll be a step closer to discovering it.
