If you could do one thing to transform your life, I would highly recommend it be to find something you're passionate about, and do it for a living.

Now, this isn't as easy as it sounds, but it's well worth the effort. If you dread going to your job, or find yourself constantly lacking motivation, or find what you're doing dull and repetitive, you need to start looking for a new job. Staying in your current job will not only continue to make you unhappy, but you are not realizing your full potential in life.

Imagine this instead: you get up early, jumping out of bed, excited to go to work. You might put in more hours than the average person, but it doesn't seem difficult to you, because your work hours just zoom right by. You are often in that state of mind often referred to as "flow," where you can lose track of the world and time, losing yourself in the task at hand. Work is not work as many people refer to it, but something that is fun and interesting and exciting. It's not a "job" but a passion.

If you've got a job you dislike, or even hate, this will sound like a pipe dream to you. And if you never put in the effort to find what you're passionate about, you're right: such a thing will never be possible. But dare to dream, dare to imagine the possibilities, and dare to actually search for what you love, and it is not only a possibility, but a probability.

How can you find what you're passionate about?  

1. Is there something you already love doing?

If there's already something you love doing, you're ahead of the game. Now you just need to research the possibilities of making money from it.  

2. What do you spend hours reading about?  

For myself, when I get passionate about something, I'll read about it for hours on end.  

3. Brainstorm.  

Nothing comes to mind right away? Well, get out a sheet of paper, and start writing down ideas. Anything that comes to mind, write it down.  

4. Don't quit your job just yet.  

If you find your calling, your passion, don't just turn in your resignation tomorrow. It's best to stay in your job while you're researching the possibilities.

5. Do as much research as possible.  

Know as much about your passion as possible. If this has been a passion for awhile, you may have already been doing this. At any rate, do even more research.

6. Never quit trying.

Can't find your passion at first? Give up after a few days and you're sure to fail. Keep trying, for months on end if necessary, and you'll find it eventually. Thought you found your passion but you got tired of it? No problem! Start over again and find a new passion.
