Let me ask you a question:

What advice would you give a friend who needed help finding their life passion?

  1. I would say to pay attention both to what, even momentarily, feels right and what feels wrong. Its kind of like the difference between shoes that fit well enough and those that feel as if they just grew around your feet – between the tool that is good enough to do the task, and the one that feels made for your hand only – notice those differences.

  2. I don’t think I can say anything that tops what Bob said!

    I would tell them to follow their instincts…their heart. To find what makes them happy and gets them excited. That is the thing they should be spending their time doing. I would also tell them that that ‘thing’ can change and morph and that that’s ok. Just go with it. 🙂

  3. I usually go deeper, imagine yourself in a field, in the midst of nowhere or no one, you have no responsibility, no restrictions, you can do whatever you want, you have no family, no friends, it’s just you, with endless time, what is the first thing you want to do? Whatever that is, you could have picked absolutely anything, but you chose that thing, that.. is what you should do

  4. You only have one chance at life. You don’t want to get to the end wondering what would have happened if you didn’t follow that passion. Also, find a life partner that allows you to pursue your passion. I’m lucky enough to have done that and it makes the road much easier.

  5. Your hobbies are usually pretty revealing. I’m practical, but after 7 years in medical field it was a “No” for me and decided to fully commit to jewelry making &Etsy. I figured out what I was passionate about after traveling & meeting new people.

    My advice is, TRAVEL! If money doesn’t allow much, then travel to other cities/states, meet new people, do something out of your comfort zone. JUST.DO.IT! Then ask “Do you enjoy your life or has it become a routine?”

    • “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” Mark Twain.

  6. I would probably say to take an inventory of talent and skills and seek input from friends and family. Then I would suggest they try some of the prospective ideas out!

  7. I like to think that would what a person would do if they didn’t get paid. Just for the enjoyment of it. Also find out what you enjoy that you “loose time” doing. Meaning you are so engrossed in the activity that time slips away. Also something that you would loose sleep to do. If you find something you would do for free, regardless of the time and willingly loose sleep for – I think that may be your passion.
