When it comes to discovering your passion, many people are a fool to believe that there is only one passion for discovering for us to experience fulfillment in life. This is wrong in so many ways, both in a theoretical and practical way.
No great life is lead with joy by just one passion.
Great lives are full of so many different passions. In all this, the only right thing is the word “discover.” Yes, we discover passion. And when we discover one or two, we keep looking for more. We are not settling down with just one. We are not satisfied with the joy of just one because we deserve more and we continue looking. Just go passion after passion.
If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. ∼ Steve Jobs
If we keep this spirit, we will discover new things and get to know things we never knew existed.
Finding your passion can lead to many great things as you get older. If you feel old and feel like you have gotten enough of this world, you are wrong. There is so much out there, and not a single person can experience all in a lifetime. This is why we need to focus on discovering more passions rather than focusing on one. Our time is precious.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. ∼ Steve Jobs
In practice, this behavior means that if we know how good in math we are and we practice it, it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be interested in philosophy or architecture. We need to strive for new things and find things that excite us. After a while, we may find ourselves focusing or interested in some other things like sports even if we don’t see ourselves doing any of that. Just never stop exploring, and you will experience the joy of always discovering new passions.
Exploring is always an adventure and a rush.
It is an excitement everyone should experience once in a while. At the end of the day, it is always more exciting to explore, try new things and wander for new passions than to follow one our whole lifetime. Following just one passion can lead to anxiety and ultimately not feeling that action as a passion anymore. With time we will feel less and less excited about doing that thing and eventually it will become just the thing we do because we have to, or it is a job. Discovering your passion and never stop doing that is not easy at all. It can be rough sometimes, and we may find ourselves in wrong directions. But we can always go back and try a new path. Eventually, we will be discovering without knowing, and that is a great feeling of accomplishment.
Learn about the world, people and their cultures. Get exposed to the unknown and embrace it. It is only then when you will start discovering your passion.
