We all have read a lot of articles on how to find your passion in life. From personality tests and questionnaires to life experiences and career advice, even I left no avenue untouched.

They say to look for hints around you, ask your friends and family for advice and put yourself out there, open to new experiences that take you outside your comfort zone and I’ve got to admit, I’ve done it all. I’ve even managed to dissect my personality into numerous letter codes like INFP and INTP, but even these weren’t good enough to satisfy my hunger to know it all.

For the most of us, discovering our passions isn’t as easy as getting a degree or finding a job. It’s a rather tiring and patience enduring process, with absolutely no assurance that you’ll get somewhere, or anywhere as a matter of fact.

    Awesome work .. One has to accept that to paint that picture on canvas is not that easy.. ur brushstrokes dont always paint the same picture .. your thought process changes in due course of time at every stage .. what seems good and important may not be even something you look back at in a later stage in life .. but ur rite .. its the way one sees it and works towards creating a picture in phases.. great point of how one has limitations of achiveing something that he/she wants to be ..and indeed the sense of accomplishment sinks well only when the path is tough… its this fight in life and discoveries that keeps the fire in you burning .. and likewise may lead to frame a better picture of your passion ..

    A new and clearer perspective on a generally discussed topic !

    Great article .. ! Kudos ! Keep it up !
