It has been difficult for me to find my passion. Today I am on my way of discovering it. I used to ask myself what kind of job satisfied me. One of my girl friend Ann told me that I could work in the field of art. A job that is creative, such as marketing, video editing, photography and advertising. Finding your passion can be overwhelmed.
One day, I grabbed my cell phone and searched for career facts. There is a ton of information that is available on the Internet. For example, I took a look at monster and indeed.com. However, it took me a long time to analyze it and drove me crazy. I could not find any answers that satisfied. Later on, I found one woman in Thailand Thitinart who writes daily inspirations on her Facebook page. She said that are three things you need to move toward reaching your goal successfully.
The first thing is observing yourself; you need to know what your nature or your special ability is. When you do something and you really enjoy doing it, you can do it well; however, you should understand that it will take you a long time to practice and refine your skill.
The second thing that she suggests is developing your gift. You can take classes that suit to your talent and learn more about it. The last thing she points out is knowing your character and personality, so you can find a job that suitable for you.
After I finished reading, I felt satisfied. The first thing comes to my mind was video editing class I took. I always enjoyed taking this class. Every assignment that my professor gave me was challenging. I realized that I was happy with the process of making videos; pre production, production, and postproduction. Maybe this is my talent and I did not know it until I stepped into this class. My professor told me that I had a special ability to make interesting video by carefully matching the content with the music.
Every individual go through the difficulty of discovering his or her passion. However, the best way to find your passion in life is dig deep. We have to take our time to think deeply about what we can do well. We also have to take our hobby into consideration. Our hobby makes us happy and we can be more productive when we experiences joy. Moreover, we have to find our flow. It is found that we can spend a lot of time doing this activity and lose the sense of time, and it is a little bit challenging, but we feel in control. As they say, do what you love, the money will follow. Do you know your passion is?
