The Passion of a Job
Passion is not something you are born with, yet it defines who you are. Developed from a combination of your interests, your inspirations, and whatever truly motivates and excites you, you are the only one who can decide what you are genuinely passionate about.
How intense your passion is towards something directly correlates to the level of fulfillment you get from doing that task. This is why those who are truly passionate about what they do don’t think of work as “work.”
How would you rate your level of passion in your job?
If your current job is leaving you burned out, tired, and exhausted at the end of the day, think about what you like to do outside of work—your hobbies or interests. Studies suggest that 65% of people do not like their current job. Money can be one of the biggest limitations to finding your true passion, especially when you’ve got to put food on the table.
If money was not an objective, what would you be doing to bring you the most happiness? Once you know what gives you the most fulfillment, see if you can’t find a job you’re passionate about or an opportunity that supports and fuels your passion. Passion is essential to reach your true potential and be the best that you can be.
If you are passionate about what you do, you can use that passion to get ahead. Learn how you can use passion to grow as a leader and gain loyal followers in your industry, and find out how the wrong kind of passion can work against you.
