Key Ideas

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.

The growth mindset

...is the belief that your abilities can be improved through effort. 

And this means you can get better and hard work pays off.

Tips for encouraging a growth mindset (in yourself and in others):

  • Don’t praise ability or intelligence: That promotes a fixed mindset. Compliment effort, process and choices.
  • Don’t ignore outcome, tie it to effort: You can be happy about success, but attribute it to effort.
  • Respond positively to failure: Failure isn’t bad, it’s a tool for improving.
  • Don’t just say “Try hard.” Set goals: Blind repetition doesn’t work. 
  • Practice a Growth mindset in all areas of life: There’s no area where they cannot improve with hard work.
  • Share your own Growth mindset efforts: Practice it yourself and share your results.

People with a Growth Mindset believe they can grow, develop, and master whatever skills and abilities they wish in life.

Mindset is a belief system

It includes the ideas we have about ourselves and the world around us. 

These beliefs come from our innate dispositions, childhood experience and/or cultural/societal influence and are often entrenched.

Examine the evidence

If you believe you can’t learn new skills or change the way you work, look at the evidence that supports both your negative and positive beliefs.

This may not necessarily lead to a modification of those beliefs, but is an important start. You can use belief monitoring to keep track of your thinking.
