Passion is key to success

Passion seems to be essential for success and happiness.
Psychologists have devised tools that can measure passion to some extent. Questions were chosen that carefully differentiate passion from other experiences. Not surprisingly, people who score higher on the passion scale tend to be more committed and less likely to change jobs.

A career without passion

While some people have a clear calling from an early age, many spend their whole careers without having ever discovered their passion.

The most basic foundation of passion is an intense interest in what you're doing.

Mindsets

Some people tend to see their abilities as fixed, that you either have a talent for something or you don't. Others have a growth mindset where they believe that abilities can change over time.

These mindsets determine how we face challenges: We either give up when we are faced with difficulties or we persevere knowing that we will improve over time.

Fixed vs. growth mindset

People with a fixed mindset:

  • They believe that the core interest remains the same and won't really change.
  • They fail to see connections between disciplines.
  • They may continue to search for the "perfect" job while neglecting the other possibilities in front of them.

Those with a growth mindset:

  • They believe that regardless of how central their interests are to them, they can change.
  • They approach material outside of their field with curiosity.
  • They see possibilities between disciplines that lead to greater creativity.

Grow your passion

We should move beyond the idea of "finding your passion." There is no secret, perfect job you just need to discover. If you don't like something at first, it can take time for things to develop. To ignite your passion:

  • Focus on your work's value to society.
  • Follow inspiring mentors.
  • Make a special effort to develop your own expertise.

With the right mindset, a little bit of interest can grow into a passion.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
