We have asked this question ourselves what should I do with my life?
And unfortunately, most of us don’t really have a good answer to that question!
In fact, every time we ask this question, we have a different answer and you are probably already tired thinking about it.
So you decided to simply go with the flow and not burden yourself about it.
But the problem is that your answer to this question will probably determine how successful you are going to be in your life.
And that’s what here in this post I will share with you a practical way to find out your passion and finally answer that question.
But before that let me clear some of your misconceptions first.
The Internet is filled with videos and posts where they say, the only way to succeed is to do what you love, what you are interested in the most, what drives you to work for hours without realizing how fast the time passed.
Despite the fact that it is true to certain extent, it’s not always practical for most people because unfortunately, we are simply passionate about too many things, we are interested in so many things that its really difficult to choose only like.
Just take my example :-p
I am passionate about writing novels and stories, I teach about blogging and share tips and tricks, I do a podcast, and even YouTube.
And what happens usually is that you start up something, you are energized and motivated but when too many obstacles starting coming up, you quickly lose interest and decide that it’s not for you, you will come up with every excuse to stop doing it, then you jump to something else.
And the same story repeats there…
No matter how much you love doing that, at some point, you will just get bored out of it.
Even if you are a gamer and you are playing your favorite video game, you will certainly move to something else at some point.
That’s why it is not only about doing what you love, its equally important to do what you care about.
Something that you feel is important to be done.
So when problems start coming in, you will most likely keep going regardless if you love dealing with these obstacles or not, because deep inside you believe that this is something that must be done regardless you like it or not.
Remember you will not stay motivated at all the times.
It is normal to wake up one day and be frustrated and completely unmotivated to do what you have been doing for the last couple of months.
It happens to all of us, but when you understand the importance of your job or the business, it will certainly keep pushing you to do what you have to do.
But a lot of people still find this advice little unpractical because sometimes, even if you find out what you are passionate about, you don’t know how to turn it into a source of income.
So what’s the point of it! Because it doesn’t matter how important that thing is if you can’t make a living out of it.
And that’s absolutely normal especially when you don’t have any business experience.
In the modern world, almost anything can be monetized one way or another.
People make a living just by playing video games and trolling others.
But here is another problem, even if we do what we feel is important and deeply passionate about, at some point, we will give up if we don’t see significant results, it will simply seem pointless to keep going, why waste your time if it is not working!
That happens because we don’t understand how growth happens.
What we have been taught all our lives is that, as long as we keep working hard, we will keep growing.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way.
Growth isn’t a right line that’s continuously going up. But rather it increases incrementally over time.
Its like when you are going to the gym, you probably won’t see any results at all in the first month.
In fact, it will seem as if you simply wasted your time, it’s only after 4,5 or 6 months you will realize significant improvement.
And everything else works in the same way.
So if you are just starting a business or starting out a blog, don’t get frustrated if no one is watching you or reading your content.
What you should be concerned about is to continuously keep improving and be confident that it will definitely grow but that will take some time.

And keep in mind that growth takes time.
So be patient and keep hustling.
And now it is your turn, What do you think?
