How To Find Work You're Truly Passionate About.

Every single super achiever has an exceptional story to tell about their success; nevertheless it will be hard to find a single person who reached the pinnacle without great, strong and powerful desire to succeed in their work, i.e. a burning passion for their work. Why would they spend their whole lives overcoming obstacles to make their dreams a reality?

The truth is that it's not always easy at all times to find work that enlivens you. Whether you're a fresh graduate, or you've already tried a small number of different career lane, these approaches below will help you discover a job that gets your blood flowing and triggers your interest which makes you feel like working the whole day non-stop, bringing you  one step closer to success.

Consider any work that makes you lose track of time.
Any work that makes you lose track of time, it means you're in flow with that work. “To lose track of time” means a state of absolute absorption. When you're so fully immersed in a specific task that you are hardly conscious of things like time passing or being hungry. Given ideal circumstance, your work would always capture your full attention this way.

Think of what you liked doing as a child.
Think of the things, you truly enjoyed doing as a child. You like doing those things not to earn money or to impress anyone. Consider your childhood and look at things you really loved. You might find your life purpose hidden in any one of the tiny areas of things you like doing as a child.

Some experts suggest you make a list of everything you remember enjoy doing as a child and see how you can infuse those activities into your present career. For instance, if you loved playing puzzle-related games or fixing up stuff that might suggest that you'd be fulfilled as an engineer.

Rule out what you don't want to do.
"The easy way to figure out what you want to do is figure out what you don't want to do," says Stan Hayward. The most important thing here is to have good reasons you don’t want to embark on such career. Do you dislike a career in engineering because you prefer something that involves meeting with new people every week and hitting a target? Once you have that understanding, it will be easier for you to narrow down your search to your desired area.

Reading other people's life stories can help you figure out how to navigate your own career quandaries.
"Find biographies about different people, in different fields. See if any of their interests resonate with yours," writes Nan Waldman. "See how others figured out what they wanted to do with their lives."

Connect your strengths, your passions, and existing career paths.
"Consider where the best job opportunities lie, and what your greatest strengths and passions are," says Anne W. Zahra. "The place where opportunity and passion overlap is probably the best place to start to consider the things you love, things you’re good in doing, and then available decently paying job opportunities. Anywhere these things meet together or closely together could help you find a solution to your quandary.

Seek for career counseling.
"Know who to ask for advice," suggests Anand Vaishampayan. “ Because not everyone has sufficient information, knowledge, and experience to guide you in the right direction."

One approach might be to find people who are doing well in the career path you've in mind to pursue and reach out to them. That way you aren't asking friends and family who want the best for you but aren't necessarily familiar with the jobs.

Don't be afraid of choosing the wrong path.
If you’re afraid choosing the wrong career path, that fear alone will keep you in an ugly state of indecision. After you have done all you  supposed to do in line with the above 6 points, go ahead and take your decision- The most awful thing that could happen is that you'll figure out what you don't like about that career field (see No. 4), which will bring you one step closer to finding work you truly love. Ragav Yarasi said “Being afraid of committing to the wrong thing will minimize your ability to explore the world”

Be passionate, love it when you find it, and enjoy what you love doing and remember it’s possible.
