Being dissatisfied with my job, I always used to try new ways to find my passion in life.
I tried selling t-shirts, wrote books, became a speaker, traded in a stock market and many more things. But very few things held my interest.
I lost interest in almost majority of things I tried. I wanted to earn quick money.
But I didn’t. At this time, there were two things that still held my interest in spite of lack of money.
No matter people read or not, I loved writing.
No matter people listened or not, I loved speaking.
But if people don’t care, you might you lose interest in your passion.
But it didn’t happen.
People read my work and loved to hear me. I slowly started receiving praise for my work.
But most importantly, it made me happy.
Speaking and writing were two activities that gave me satisfaction above all else. These activities made me forget all the worries in my life and I experienced complete bliss.
I was still not sure that it could be my passion.
That’s where my reading and learning habit came into picture.
I read and listened to lot of top bloggers, authors, speakers and other successful people. I got to know about their journey and came to know that everyone got through their life with similar struggles that I had.
Everyone felt the same way about their passion as I felt about speaking and writing.
That’s when the light bulb went inside my head and I listed three signs which were common with people around the world who have found their passion in life including me.

You care about work more than money.
Of course you want money but when you have that fire of passion ignited in you, you don’t care about money so much.
When you have found your passion…
You are willing to work for free.
You will let go of monetary compensation for a short period of time.
You will work without worrying about getting paid.
Working on our passion makes us so happy which working for money alone cannot.
And if you could figure out a way for getting paid for your passion, you are the luckiest person on this Earth.
You cannot a spend a single day without thinking about it.
What happens wihen you fall in love with someone?
You cannot spend a single day without thinking of them.
That’s what happens when you fall in love with your work.
As days passes, you keep thinking about it and feel more and more motivated to work for it.
Imagine you are in your 80’s.
You are in your deathbed in a hospital with only few hours left.
As you close your eyes, your entire life flashes before your eyes.
What did you see?
Did you miss something? Did you feel like something needs to be done?
If yes, then that’s your passion.
Figuring out you passion take time and effort. These signs won’t come to you easily. But when you experience them, be prepared to go to the next level of your life.
