So how can you get to the point where you are performing a job that you really enjoy each day? One way to achieve this is to look inside yourself and discover what gifts and talents you have. If you are not sure what your talents are, ask 10 of the closest people to you what they think your talents are.
Schools today focus on teaching you the skills to get a good job, without even tapping into a passion. We are taught to train for a good-paying job and while fun at first, the excitement of it wears off. After a few years in your profession, you are feeling bored and unfulfilled. This is exactly why there are so many people pursuing a job that they aren’t happy with.

Let’s take a look at some of the gifts and talents you may already possess. You may be a great musician or singer, do you enjoy dancing? Do you love working with people? Or you may possibly be a great listener. My gift, for example, is the ability to be creative. Creative in strategy, problem-solving and thinking unconventionally. When I go to work thats what I truly really enjoy doing and I’m currently building my business in a way that allows me to stay in that energy as much as possible.

Once you can identify one of your talents then you want to look for ways to use it. If you enjoy working with people, you may consider working with school children or even seniors. If you are a great listener you could become a social worker, a counselor or even a human resources person. If you can’t pursue your talent full time then think about doing it occasionally. You could also volunteer your time by using your talents. If you enjoy animals you could volunteer to help raise money for the humane society. Or raise the needed equipment and tools for a local charity.

When you start to follow one of your passions you will instantly feel happier with your life. You will have a purpose in life, something to look forward to each week.
While you still may have to work to pay your bills and provide for your family. You have now found a new outlet – your passion. This could be the perfect way to improve your life, reduce stress and feel as though you are doing some good in the world.
