I just watched this video by Chase Jarvis:
It is about finding your passion or your calling.
Most of us, including myself, struggle to find our calling, our passion, our interests. It can sometimes be frustrating. No matter what we do, the things we are doing just don’t seem to satisfy us.
However, I believe that finding your passion is not something that is straightforward. It requires twists and turns, endless searching and experimenting. Young people like myself, we lacked the experience of the outside world, the different jobs, career paths and activities.
What we can do is to go out and experiment, go out and try loads of new things, do your many firsts because I believe that only through trying can we find what we are really passionate about. You wouldn’t know that you’re passionate about photography until you try it, you wouldn’t know you’re passionate about volunteering until you try it.
Life is never linear, successful people go through many paths, through many jobs and through many failures, but they continue to trudge on trying to find their passion until they did.
I hope that this would be a reminder to all of us that finding our passion might sometimes be an arduous task but will pay off in the end.
