Some people know what they want to do early on in life. Others take a while to find themselves and their talents. Then there are those that switch careers at different times in their lives. You want to do something with your life that you enjoy, and that means finding work and a career that you love doing. In other words, you want to be passionate about your career, and one thing I suggest is finding out how whatever you choose can help people and not just yourself.
It is better to give than to receive. A young man in my family has already decided as a teenager that he wants to be a teacher. It seems likely to everyone that is exactly what he’s going to decide to do as he grows up the rest of the way. It’s part of his personality. He is a very caring and nurturing person, selfless, and he thinks of others and how he can provide instruction to them as well. It’s like ingrained in his personality to want to teach and help people.
When I first started out in college, I was going to study business. I left school after a year, started writing on the side and worked at all kinds of jobs for several years. I began to work with an after-school program a year after I started back to school to study English. I began teaching in different capacities, and I even attached a teacher’s certification to my degree.
After a tragic accident involving the brother of the family member I mentioned, I decided to stop teaching, with other reasons attached as well. I again worked a few jobs in between until a career opportunity literally seemed to fall right into my lap. I began working as a writer, first just part-time writing product descriptions and keeping my day job. Then suddenly, I landed right in the middle of a growing career I have had now for 7 years.
Writing is a big passion of mine, and I would never have guessed that it would be my career. How to find my career passion online? My advice is to find your passions, and the career will find you. You have to know yourself, and you have to be confident. You can’t allow yourself to get sidetracked because you do have to work hard to achieve your dreams.
It’s also about the right timing because everyone’s journey is different. And sometimes people do end up having more than one career that they are passionate about. I was a very passionate teacher. It was a chapter of my life that I love very much. I am only in my late 30’s, and I now have had two careers that I have been extremely passionate about.
What are your passions? If you aren’t sure yet or aren’t sure how you can turn them into a career, you will find a way. Just keep dreaming, and realize that at the right time, things often have a way of working out if you are moving in the right direction.
