Many people are out in the world trying to "find" their passion in life like it's some sort of treasure chest. I'd argue that a passion is not something to be found but rather re-discovered.
If someone asked you what your favorite food was, would you respond, "I'm still trying to figure that out" or "I'm hoping to find that this year". They would think you're absolutely out of your mind and probably stop talking to you. You know exactly what your favorite food is based on all of your experiences eating throughout your life whether it be pizza, steak, or your favorite flavor of Ben and Jerry's ice cream.
I find that there is a big tendency to look forward and into the future as if our passion is some sort of destination we reach. A passion is a desire/preference, which cannot be projected into the future.
Here's two things you can do instead.
1.) Look into the PastInstead of going on a frantic quest to "find" your purpose, I would recommend looking into your past desires. Take a step back in time and ask yourself...
What are the things you loved doing as a child?
What type of activities gave you the most pleasure?
What kind of jobs and tasks didn't really feel like work to you?
How did you like to relate to others?
Theres a pretty big chance that the answers to these questions are still relevant now.
2.) Tune into Your Current FeelingsTune into this exact moment.
What exactly do you feel like doing right now?
What would feel good to me in this moment?
What do I feel inspired to do?
In order to tune into these feelings, you might have to look past other people's expectations of you and what you should be doing.
As a child, you naturally gravitated to things that brought you pleasure and the activities that you were inspired to do. Whether that was video games, sports, cooking, music, or playing with barbie dolls, that was completely up to you. Everyone is unique and has their own gut preferences, which guide them to make choices.
As a child, you didn't need anyone to tell you to find your passion. You probably didn't even know what that meant. You simply tried things out and stuck with the activities that resonated with you.
Having a "need" to find your passion is quite paradoxical because it implies obligation when a passion can only come out of spontaneity and inspiration. This can easily leave you disappointed and have you feel like you're desperately grasping for straws.
Start tuning into your preferences and desires. If you've loved pizza as a kid, chances are, you'll always love it. Perhaps you've just been eating too much canned food and lost touch with what you really love.
