People will tell you to find your purpose or your passion. But we are multifaceted beings with many gifts, talents, interests, and ideas. Yet we are put under pressure to have this one purpose or one passion.
We will grow and shift so much in our lifetime that we can expect our desires and purpose to evolve too.
Instead of concentrating your energy on one purpose or passion, try to focus your energy on bringing your passion and purpose to everything you do.
Our greatest sense of purpose or passion does not have to come from our 9-to-5 job. It can, but does not have to.
Sometimes a job is just how we pay our bills, and that is fine. Focus on who you are after your workday is over.
Stop the conscious searching of your passion and just live passionately.
Trying to find a passion is often a fruitless exercise, though it is heavily advised in many books and articles. A better strategy is to lead a passionate life, which is a more holistic approach too.
We tend to build friendships with people who share common interests and values, have gone through the same difficulties, and support each other equally.
We are selective about friends because not everyone is able to exchange thoughts and feelings with us.
Various studies show that creative hobbies increase our happiness and well-being, and they can even make our work more productive.
Spending more time on something we are passionate about, unrelated to our work, boosts our confidence at our jobs.
