Why you have no passions

When I was young, my dad gave me a red firetruck. So I wanted to be a fireman. My daughter started watching a lot of fashion related videos on youtube. Now she wants to be a fashion desgner. Now, she started reading about animals so now she wants to be a vetenarian.

Do you see a pattern here?

  1. There were no people who were passionate about cars before the invention of the automobile.
  2. There were no gamers before computer games.
  3. Before social networks we gathered on the back porch at night and played board games.


It seems like finding a passion turns out to be actually learning something new. Then you discover if you like it or not.

There is no such thing as discovering a passion without going deep into it.

This has NOTHING to do with university. Nothing to do with a job.

(And by the way, collecting things is not a passion. It’s called hoarding)

If you really want to have a strong passion you have to learn things on your own. And it comes down to being curious and doing it for a while, so you can actually learn the basics about it.

Only then, will it become a passion.

Only then you should decide to go to University to learn more. Only then should you decide to go into a business to make some money from it.

The world is filled with people who are sitting on their butts trying to find a passion.

It’s also filled with people who went to university or started a business or got a job doing something it turned out they did not like.

You will be much more productive if you rise up, be curious and start trying things first.
