Today I’m going to tell you what is passion, and how to find your passion. Also, I will show you how to develop passion and pursue a career you love.
Let’s dive right in.
What Is Passion?
There are a few types of passion, but I’m going to tell you about the passion for the profession.
Because you are here to find your passion for pursuing a career you love.
So, what’s the actual meaning of passion?
Passion is a strong desire for something. Passion gives us the energy, enthusiasm, and patience to overcome obstacles. It helps us to focus on our work to achieve goals.
How to find your passion?
Keep your parents and your society’s thinking aside.
Now think about what you love to do and ask yourself these questions:
- “What could I do without getting paid?”
- “What do I do most of the time?”
- “What subject could I read thousands of books without getting bored?”
- “What activity motivates me?”
- “Who are the people I admire, and why?”
Now, after asking these questions to yourself, what is your answer?
Yes! You got it, right?
The ‘answer’ is your passion.

How to develop passion?
Is it possible to develop passion?
Obviously, everything is possible.
Whether you are finding your passion or developing your passion; there is the same method to do both.
Take a look at my life.
I was very passionate about music. I always dreamed of becoming a singer.
My friends told me that I should become a singer. Because I love music so much, I, too, have a dream of becoming a singer.
However, when I decided to learn music, when I decided to explore the world of music, there was no one to support me.
When I told my parents, they didn’t give me the support that I deserved. As most Indian parents do, they want me to become a doctor or an engineer.
After I realized that I couldn’t be a musician without my parents’ support, I had two options: Leave everything and explore music, or study in college.
However, I also hated the education system, and I dropped out of school.
Prior to leaving school, however, I developed my passion and I knew what my next step would be. It is entrepreneurship that I am passionate about now.
How did I develop a passion for myself?
The process is simple. It turns out I love business too. Similarly to music, I wanted to explore the world of business to learn about it.
For almost two years, I read business blogs and books, discovered some awesome podcasts, followed inspirational business mentors on Instagram, and watched a lot of inspirational YouTube videos and movies.
By doing so, I filled my brain with a lot of business information and emotion. Believe me, my thoughts changed as well.
Over time, my love for business turned into a passion.
I’ve realized that entrepreneurship is my new passion, and I want to help and inspire others. I started this blog; I started answering questions on Quora, I build an Instagram following, and I started helping young hustlers through Inuidea and other social media.
Additionally, I convinced (it was a difficult phase of my life) my parents that I don’t want to be a doctor or an engineer. In fact, I’m not going to school anymore. I want to start my own business and become an entrepreneur.
So, here’s is the answer to how to develop passion:
Make your choice based on what you love. Be surrounded by like-minded people. Read books and blogs. Watch videos and listen to podcasts. Feed your brain with information and stay motivated all the time.
You will then be guided by your mind on what to do next.
