Choosing a Career? Discover Your Real Passion with These Helpful TipsBy Audri Taylors, UniversityHerald Reporter
When you love what you are doing, no one can ever stop you. But the question is, have you ever really figured out what you love to do? Or what you will love to do? If at this point you are still going in circles when it comes to thinking about the things you'd want to do with your life, well you are not the only one. And after trying to figure out what you want to do or who you want to be, are you doing something about it now? If not, what's holding you back?
Passion. It's what sets the extraordinary things apart from the ordinary. When you do things with passion, everything else changes. Discover your true passion by asking yourself these questions.
What do you think will you be doing now if all jobs are paid the same? Will you be sticking around your current job? Or will you be doing something else?
What are the things that excite you? That inspire you? The things that make you jump out of your bed in the morning? What makes you feel proud?
What are the things that you do best? What are you really good at? Think about the things that other people reach out to you for, and what they say that you should do for a living.
What do you want to be when you grow older? And think about the things that you will regret not doing, especially when you don't have the strength to do them anymore. What is that something you have always wanted to do?
Now, after answering all of these questions, it's time to take an action.
Try new things that you have not done before, if you like them, keep them, if not then that's okay.
Broaden your horizon and open yourself to limitless possibilities, get out of your comfort zone and get your hands dirty.
Learn from other people, especially from the ones who do the same exact things you'd love to do. Do not hesitate to learn from them and meet new people you can learn from.
Invest your time for the most valuable things, invest in yourself. If pursuing your dream entails you going back to school, then it's going to be worth it.
Anything you do to pursue your passion and dreams and staying true to it, is worth all the sacrifices.
