How to Develop Passion

How can you develop passion in the most important areas of your life?
Let’s look at your career for a moment. That’s the work that occupies the majority of your week. A recent Gallup poll said a full one third of Americans would be happier in another job.
Ask yourself:
Am I doing what I love to do?
If you aren’t, and you had the choice to do anything you wanted to do, what would that be?
If you believe you can’t make money doing that, imagine that you just won the lottery. After buying your
expensive mansion, a Rolls-Royce, and all the toys and travel you wanted, what would you do with
your day?
What you’re doing now or something different?
The most successful people I’ve met love what they do so much, they would actually do it for free.
But they’re successful because they’ve found a way to make a living doing what they love to do.
If you’re not skilled enough to do the work you’d love to do, make time to educate yourself. Do whatever it takes to prepare working part time in your dream job or even volunteering as an intern—while still maintaining your current job.
Pay attention, too, to those times outside of the office when you feel the happiest, the most joyous, the most fully engaged, the most acknowledged and appreciated, and the most connected with yourself
and others.
What were you doing at those times? What were you experiencing? Those events are indicators of ways you can bring passion into your life outside your day-to-day work. It tells you what you would be happiest doing with your time.
