A Simple Way to Discover Your Passions

Do you know what your passions are? If not, I’ve been in your shoes.

Years ago, after finishing a special two year training program, I started a one year internship. I was given the opportunity to lead a department all by myself. I did almost everything.

Soon, I got others involved. I ended up leading that department for three years. It was a great experience and I loved it.

Before I took that internship, if you would have asked me what my passions were, I don’t know that I could have told you. But years later, looking back on my time with that organization, things are a lot clearer.

This story illustrates one of the best ways I know to discover your passions.

Do something.

Experience is a great teacher. I have learned a lot about myself over the years, what I like and what I don’t like.

Would I have learned any of these things if I had waited until I had everything figured out? The answer is no. You won’t either.

What should you do? Well, are there any opportunities in front of you? Don’t be scared to try something new that interests you. As the saying goes, you never know until you try.

If you want to discover your passions and find out what you enjoy doing when it comes to work, why not give this method a try?

Do something. Try something new. Today!

Questions: Have you discovered your passions? If so, how? If not, what is one thing that you have been wanting to try that interests you?
