Searching for “Your Passion” is dumb.

I’m so sick of hearing these so called experts telling people to “find your passion”.   This is unintelligent and causes more harm than good in most cases. It leads the people who don’t hate their jobs into discontent, thinking there is something so much better out there and they go looking for greener pastures. They end up roaming from field to field looking to find there elusive “passion”.

You need to ask yourself, do you need to “find your passion” or just bring passion into what you already do? Passion is nothing more than a high interest level. Finding your passion is like finding happiness. It’s on the inside not the outside.  You decide to be happy. You decide to be passionate. It’s not some secret treasure you have where you have to go on world wide search to find. If you are having a hard time just look for why, how and who you do it for. There’s your passion. What a miserable life it is to depend on external forces to make you happy or passionate.

    Yet another characteristic of passion, I believe, is that of persistance; the keen interest persists; it survives many of our life’s ups and downs!

  2. Well said! The basic assumption that the ‘pundits’ giving advice make is that you are NOT (or should not be) passionate about what you are already doing. And ‘passionate’ things are always portrayed as being abstract, non-reachable, utopian and, almost always, non-revenue earning!
