Amelia Earhart, Leonardo Da Vinci, The Wright Brothers, and Marie Curie.. What did all of these people have in common? They followed their passions unapologetically and found success in something that they were excited about.
When is the last time you spent a couple of hours doing something that made you feel genuinely alive? That made the time fly past, and left you feeling stimulated instead of run down?
To discover your passion, and follow up on it is one of the better ways you are able to use your time. Whether your passion is for protecting the environment, baking cookies, singing, teaching, or predicting the stock markets; pursuing it will definitely give you opportunities to benefit other people by sharing your creations or knowledge. It may also open up possibilities for following your life passion as a job.
Doing what makes you happy is not frivolous or selfish- it is smart. Being pleased makes you healthier, more productive, and nicer to be around. In addition, whom are you helping by working yourself into the ground doing things that do not satisfy you?
Understanding yourself and what you are passionate about, allows you to find a position that is best suited for you. When you allow your passions to guide you, it increases your engagement and investment in the journey. So, find your life passion, and go for it with your whole heart. Time spent doing what you love will never be time wasted.
