Waiting to Make a Decision for Your Passion?

Your 20's is the age at which you may complete your formal education, pursue higher studies or decide to take up a full time job. Deciding between these pursuits may not be an easy task.

A thought that might help clarify this is whether or not you have passion for a particular profession. You may be puzzled whether you really need to follow your passions or just leave them behind at this point of life. Some of your desires might not sound realistic and you may feel that you'll be the talk of the town, in a bad way, if you said it to others. However, it might be time to believe in yourself and grab hold of your dreams.

Stop Quitting

Let the confusion take place at its own pace, but never let it put your passion into the store room. For example, if your passion is in macro photography, don’t stop taking out your camera when you see a beautiful butterfly due to the dilemma of how to make a career out of it. I am not saying you should always keep aside the confusion but I am asking you not to quit.

Be Happy to Do

It is your passion and you feel happy when you do it. Stop thinking about your confusion or frustrations over life while pursuing your passion and live in the moment. Don’t let yourself get distracted. If you can, allot a minimum time each week for your passion and don’t let anything else come between you and your passion during that time. You'll find yourself happy and pursuing your dreams in no time.

Don't be Afraid to Work

The situation may be that you have to work in a different industry to support yourself and survive. But it doesn’t mean that you have to give up your passion. For example, you may have learned to play the piano and wish to buy your very own instrument, but it's not going to come out of thin air. You'll have to earn money to buy that piano and help you embrace your passion.
