There are many ways to be passionate, but none of them seem to work for very long. When you have run out of things that you are passionate about, then it is time to reevaluate your life. You can’t keep going until you find something you are passionate about if you want to survive and thrive.
It is hard to remember this when you were younger. As kids, we didn’t know any different. We spent our lives learning new skills and experiencing new things through school, hobbies, and sports.
But now that you're a grown up, you need to figure out what you really like to do. You will spend the rest of your life doing these things, so you should enjoy them!
If you don't, then you'll waste your life. You'll also probably end up lonely or depressed because there's no one around you who shares your interests. Your friends won't stick around unless they see some value in being together.
Bored people tend to get sick more often than those who are stimulated by good experiences. So, even if someone wanted to stay with you, you would be preventing yourself from having healthy relationships.
You deserve better than that. You've got enough problems without adding isolation to the list.
So how do you learn what you are passionate about? Here are 10 tips to help you identify your passions.
Examples of passion
In any situation, if you are not passionate about something, then you will probably look to get away from it as soon as possible. If you are passionate about dancing, then why would you want to be around people who don’t like dance? If you are passionate about reading, then why would you watch TV shows or go to movies that do not feature much action or story lines?
If you are passionate about someone else, then why would you need to make their life more difficult by showing less interest in them? The more interested you are in someone, the better they feel about themselves and the happier they become!
By having some sort of passion, you can bring out the best in others. They will feel appreciated and wanted because you have an emotional attachment to what they do. Others will admire you for your enthusiasm. It is one of the most powerful things we can offer each other.
It is important to remember that no matter how hard you try to inspire passion in another person, they will never feel truly loved unless they find it for themselves. We all have different passions so there is really nobody who could ever tell you what yours should be. Only you can decide that.
Another way to see this is that even though you may not agree with what someone does, you must respect them for their ability to motivate themselves. People who cannot put forth effort into something they love simply were not given the right to survive.
The different types of passion
There are many ways to describe passionate people, but no matter what kind you look into, you will never quite get the full picture.
Some say that passionate people are just more motivated than others. These individuals are constantly thinking about how they can achieve their goals, and they seem to be very focused on moving forward.
This type of person may make things happen quickly by going fast with decisions, acting immediately instead of delaying until later, and being direct without using unnecessary pleasantries or distractions.
However, while this is a good thing, it does not always work in productive ways for your loved ones and/or colleagues.
Since passionate people sometimes have a hard time waiting for things to come to a stop, they may hurt other people’s feelings unintentionally because they do not give them enough time to process what has happened before moving onto the next thing.
Furthermore, since these people tend to keep up the momentum of something they started, they may drop what they were doing if someone tries to pull them off track. This could potentially end in a lot of wasted energy and frustration.
Relationships and passion
Let’s look at some examples of things that are not passionate.
I will give you one minute to pack up your belongings, and then I will kill you.
That seems like a pretty clear indicator that what you are doing is not working out very well. You have been diagnosed with something called “cancer” (the word used in this case being dependent upon where the cancer metastasized within the body) and it is time to start looking for a new place to live.
You see, when someone else has determined that you do not care enough about them to keep them as a friend or partner, it is time to find somewhere you can devote yourself to with the same level of intensity.
Relationships take work and energy and there comes a point where you just cannot make it work any more. This is why most people never get into a true partnership; they spend too much time at work and/or home and never really invest in anyone outside of work and family.
If you want a partnership, you have to put in the effort and show the desire for a real relationship twice a week for an entire year! And even then, it may only last a few months before one of you decides to move onto another person.
This is why there are so many unhappy marriages – sometimes both individuals realize that they would be better off apart than trying to make it work together.
Living your passion
Now that you know what passion is, how do you live it? What does it take to make sure your life is full of it? This may sound simple, but it can be tricky.
First, you have to understand that not every situation will bring about passion. You have to look for it. It isn’t easy to find, but when you do, you gotta keep doing those things!
You have to work on yourself by practicing self-care, giving yourself credit for trying even if you don’t succeed immediately, and learning from mistakes.
Living with passion takes effort in both activities and time. Invest in yourself and opportunities that might spark passion and watch as it grows.
Don’t expect perfection, because none of us are ever truly perfect, but strive to put in the same amount of effort as you would want someone who loves you to do.
If there’s one thing we can learn from romantic comedies, it’s that having passion for something goes much further than just thinking it’s cool or interesting.
It’ll actually help you thrive and survive beyond all expectations! And yes, it’ll make you happy too.
Taking action and being passionate
Let’s look at some examples.
I will say it again, taking action and being passionate are two of the most important traits to know as a person.
If you want to see your dreams come true, you have to be willing to put in the work and effort to make them happen.
And if you want to achieve something significant, you must be motivated by something greater than yourself.
It can be anything from wanting to help others to wishing to create an improved life for yourself or others.
There is no one definition of passion, but there is one thing all passions share: they are hard to find.
You have to choose to pursue things that matter to you, not because someone told you to, but because you wanted to.
Finding and doing your passion
The first step to finding your passionate career is figuring out what you like to do. You will know when you have found your passion if you are constantly thinking about it, talking about it, and trying new things related to it.
When you were a kid, did you watch favorite cartoons or movies? What games did you enjoy playing as a child? As an adult, what hobbies and activities keep you engaged at the time?
These questions can help you determine whether or not you have found your passion. If you are consistently thinking about something, then it has become important to you, which means it is a passion.
Finding your passion as an adult may be more difficult than young people’s passions, because most adults have limited time to devote to different activities. This makes it harder to identify strong passions.
However, there are some universal experiences everyone has: relationships, work, and money. These are all very powerful emotions that we all share.
By studying how these feel for various individuals, you can find their passion.
Connecting with your passion
Let’s look at an example of how to connect with your own passionate life goal.
If you want to be a professional musician, then you must have music in your life. You need to love music for it to motivate you to work hard and spend time on lessons and practicing.
You also need to believe that you are good enough – not professionally, but as a person – to keep pursuing your dream of being a musician.
And lastly, you need to feel confident in yourself, which means feeling comfortable in your own skin and knowing who you are as a person.
All these qualities help you stay motivated while you are working towards your musical dreams. You will be inspired by the songs you listen to, the people who inspire you, and the strength of your beliefs about yourself.
Music is a powerful tool for motivation. It can boost your mood and increase focus, and it can influence how you perceive yourself.
It is one of the most effective tools we have to strengthen our self-confidence.
Let's look at some examples of things that are clearly not passions.
Running is definitely not a passion.
Surfing is probably not a passion either, though it might be fun for you if you can add waves to your list. (If you need more inspiration, check out our article: 30 Fun Ways To Surf Online.)
Dressing in outrageous clothes or making weird fashion statements is also likely not a passion. (I'll let you figure out what goes into creating a passion wardrobe...)
Drinking alcohol frequently is not a good way to enjoy being awake anymore either! (Unless you're already drinking heavily, then go crazy!)
None of these things make you feel very passionate about them. You may like doing them, but they don't inspire much else than feeling tired and drunk or sick and desperate when you get home.
There are two reasons why none of these things matter. First, most people who do them aren't really invested in them - heh, someone spending money on booze isn't necessarily a person who wants to drink a lot.
And second, even if a few people did actually feel passionately about their activities, no one would ever know except for them themselves.
By having this internal silence around how you spend your time, you limit yourself – and your chances of discovery.
That was the case with my friend who spent her life traveling while working as a marketing consultant.
