I was reading the news this morning, and I came across an article in the New York Times called "Follow A Career Passion? Let It Follow You". It was only a one-pager, so I took the 60 seconds to read it and found a guy who thinks like me.
He talks about something that I never heard growing up, but apparently a lot of you did. He was "told by guidance counselors, career advice books, the news media and others to "'follow [his] passion.'" The problem was that he didn't come with a passion pre-installed, just like I don't think that I did.
No one who answered my post the other day (which is now down in the Mind Warriors forum) spoke up that they felt the same way I do about this, and I wonder if that is a problem in itself.
Are any of you struggling out there to find your place in IM because everyone says to follow your passion, but you don't have one? Do you keep hitting the keyword research sites hoping that a magical keyword will jump out at you and you'll be hooked on it? Do you keep buying one WSO after another, hoping that one of them will unlock a secret treasure chest down deep within your soul and finally show you something that you can be happy about?
I'm just curious...when I read the NYTimes article this morning, it was like a little light bulb clicked on for me and I wanted to share it with the WF.
