What is your passion? This is one of the most important questions in your life.
Today’s society is so structured. We are expected to do things a certain way, and anyone who strays from the norm is considered strange or different. Last week, when I met Steve for the first time he asked me this simple question, “What are you passionate about?” Fairly easy, right? Yet as I sat there under the spotlight, my mind drew a blank. When was the last time I did something that I genuinely enjoyed or did just because I enjoyed doing it? Students can get so caught up in the craziness of college and their coursework that they lose sight of their purpose.
However, it is a big thing to come to terms with the monotony of your life. To see the breaking down of the idea of an individual. It is time for a change. College years are some of the most formative to a person’s identity and when you get someone to start asking questions it opens their mind.
Everyone needs a little passion. Even the happiest man on Earth can always use some. I still have yet to find mine. Most people are brainwashed into thinking happiness comes from a paycheck or a stable job. Looking back at your life you were probably most happy doing something you love. Why not pursue that passion?
So how does one find their passion? Passion with Purpose has the goal of empowering, inspiring, and encouraging people to do what they love. Try something new, don’t listen to other people, and find yourself. One does not truly start living until they are doing what they love.
We are not trying to give people purpose, we are trying to get them to find their passion, and in finding that passion, we are given a purpose.
