How to Find Your Career Passion

Are you doing what you love and living out your purpose? Here are some helpful factors to take into consideration when finding your career passion. If you are having trouble in loving what you do for a living, you are not alone. The problem is that many of us just go through these phases: high school, college, job, etc. We find ourselves in jobs that we do not like. So how do we find our career passion? You may have taken a job perhaps just for the money or simply to have a job. This may feel like a success at first but when the "rubber meets the road", we find ourselves stressed out and unhappy.

Find Your Career Passion

  • Ask yourself, "What is it that I like to do?" When you find something that you truly enjoy doing, it won't feel like work. You will feel fulfilled and "at home" with your skills.
  • Ask yourself, "What am I good at?" Some of us grew up in environments where compliments were not readily handed out, so this can be a difficult question. If you are having trouble answering it, ask trusted friends and family members for insight. Ask them to describe you in words.
  • Reflect on your definition of success. What does success mean to you and how important is your idea of success? Your career passion likely ties with success whether it is achievement, financial, or status.
  • Determine your core values in life. This will help you as you narrow down career possibilities that may fall in line with your values. Core values also help guide you into a full or a part-time work, getting married and starting a family. How does your career passion fall into line with your core values?
  • Take an assessment of your current job. What is it that you are good at when working and what do you hate about your work?
  • Ask yourself what it is that you want to be identified for and start focusing accordingly.

Find Your Dream Job

Once you have explored the above questions, it's time to think on possible job ideas. Ask yourself the following:
  • Which type of work will benefit me?
  • How will my career beneficial to others?
  • What is my description of the "perfect" job for me?
  • What kind of people I would like to work with?
  • How my career will make me feel?
