“Find your passion.” “Do what you love.” “Follow your heart.”
We hear this advice from super-successful people in interviews and graduation speeches all the time. And even though it sounds very simple, it isn’t.
We live in a world with limitless choices for what to do, where to go, and who to become—limitless choices for vocations that could be your passion.
And we’re always under constant pressure from close family, friends, peers, and the world, in general, to make choices that conflict with what we really want for our lives.
Finding your passion is not easy
It’s an uphill battle that most of us have not won yet. According to a recent Gallup poll, almost 70% of Americas are not working on vocations that engage them—the grand majority of us are not working on our passions.
Most people aren’t engaged in their careers because finding your passion is a tough process. But it’s not impossible.
Want to know how to find your passion?
Below you’ll find 3 ways to know when you’ve truly connected to a vocation that you love.

1. If You Do It For Fulfillment—Not For The Money
To determine whether or not a particular craft, job, or vocation is your true passion, start by asking yourself: Why?
Why did I choose this specific career or vocation? What led to the decision to become a golfer, an investor, an engineer, a blogger, or an entrepreneur? Why did I get into this career field in the first place? How come I show up to work every day?
To figure out if a particular craft is your passion or not, you first need to understand your reasons and justifications. Second, you need to know your motivation for continuing to pursue what you’re doing on a daily basis.
