Have you ever felt that you weren’t achieving great things in life? That’s exactly what I, and many others, have contemplated about in the wee hours of the morning. You aren’t the only one going through this so read on as I tell you that there IS a way out of this. The way out is through finding your passion project.
So, what is a passion project?
It is exactly as it reads.
It is a project that you are passionate about. If I told you that you can only do one thing in your life, what would it be? That would be your passion project. It could be blogging, starting your own business, writing a book, or volunteering, along with many other things. Finding your passion project can be difficult but don’t fret as I will show you some of my tips on how you can find your passion project when you have no idea what you want to do with your life.
Figure out what you enjoy
This is my number one tip. Figuring out what makes you tick is crucial to finding your passion project. Without passion, it is merely a project. What do you love? What makes you spring out of bed at dawn?
For me, I enjoy a lot of things, most of which are what many classify as “introvert-type activities”. I enjoy reading books, writing, photography, social media, playing computer games, and working as an entrepreneur. Those are the things that make me tick. What are yours?
You can have multiple passion projects
You aren’t restricted to only one passion project, you can have many. One day, you might feel like working on one project, another you might want to work on another, or if you’re super savvy with time management, you can spend blocks of time a day working on your different passion projects. If you want to focus on one passion project only, then go for it!
Everyone has different interests and work ethic. You do you.
Get inspired by people around you
If you really have no idea what you want to do, get inspired by the people around you, whether in real life or on social media.
See what others are doing and it might spark a lightbulb. In saying that, this doesn’t mean you are copying them, unless you are blatantly copying them exactly. That’s a no-no. Getting ideas from the world around us is perfectly normal. What makes each idea different is the person behind the idea and how he/she can make it reflect themselves.
Now my challenge to you is to find your passion project and let me know what it is! You can catch me on my blog (www.stephanievivienne.com) or chat over on my Twitter (@steph_vivienne) and Instagram (@theworldofpixels).
