If you visit my blog regularly then you may have noticed that I am keen to help people follow their dreams and passions. Sometimes we can all use a little nudge towards the ambitions that we have, but what about those of us who do not know what our dreams are yet? If this sounds like you, and you haven’t yet figured out what you are passionate about, then being told to follow your passions can be frustrating.
It seems as though some people are born knowing what they want to do with their lives. They have job goals from a young age or talents that come naturally to them which guide their path. For those of us who this is not applicable to, all of the advice about following your passion can seem pointless. However, not yet knowing what you want out of life, or what it will take to make you happy, does not mean that you never will! The process of self discovery is an exciting journey that has no set pace.
So, if you do not yet know what your passion or passions are in life is, how can you set about figuring it all out?
First of all, try to contemplate all of the things that you are interested in or curious about. These do not have to be huge things and actually might seem quite insignificant to you. They may be things that you encounter every day or they may be things that you have only ever thought about. Once you are certain of these things, you can set about exploring them further.
Perhaps you have always been enchanted by some far away exotic destination and this could inspire a passion for travel. Perhaps your curiosities are more ingrained within you, such as a desire to create something.
Taking the time to learn more about the things that you have a curiosity for can quickly become a very fulfilling activity. Some people negate this act as they don’t see that it is immediately beneficial to their lives, or consider it a waste of time. But these small acts of curiosity can quickly lead to larger acts of adventure and self-discovery.
Allowing yourself the time to indulge in the things that fascinate and intrigue you is a great way to take a break from the parts of your life that feel like obligations. In time you may feel that certain things that you were curious about no longer interest you – and that’s okay! This simply means this thing wasn’t your passion in life and there was no harm in letting yourself explore it. If you continue to approach everything in this way, and never tell yourself no when you want to discover something new, then you will surely be on track to filling your life with passion and happiness.
