Hey there press starters and welcome back to another awesome edition of the press Start leadership podcast. On this week's episode we're discussing what's your passion? Six simple tips to finding your true passion. Did he have passion? What a man died in ancient Greece didn't write obituaries they only asked one question. Did he have passion. Or at least that's what they said in the movie serendipity. While this may have only been movie magic, and not historical truth, it is a powerful thought. As a leader, your passion can be incredibly positive and powerful, especially if helping others to grow and succeed is your passion. Here are some tips for finding your passion. Try everything. Explore everything you'd love to do. I went to college for philosophy, religious studies and film. Then I went back to school for special effects makeup. And again for art and game design. I worked in retail sales as a fast food worker, a makeup artist, a game design producer, a project manager, Development Manager, design director and a studio manager asked to make podcasts, record videos, write blogs, and sculpt. Most of these are hobbies and jobs that I loved. I didn't love all of them instantly. But over time identified the things I enjoyed and made them a priority. Just like I've done with leadership. Be you follow your heart and go where you feel the need to go. chase your dreams. Your Path might change. But don't worry, it's not predestined what you like will change over time. Do what you know in your heart is good for you. Don't compare your journey as yours. Your friends, journeys are theirs. They are where they are and you are where you are. It's not a competition. Just like in yoga. What you do when you're on the mat is the only thing that matters. Don't let fear get in your way. Fear stops more success than failure. Don't pass up on awesome things just because you're afraid to take a chance. Like one of my mentors, Osho puts it they say think twice before you jump. I say jump first and then think as much as you want. Go within meditate on it and trust your gut, your truth can be found inside. So don't spend your time looking outward for answers and external validation. Only you can define what success looks like. And no matter what they say. It's not all about the money, money money. Others won't always understand why you do what you do. And that's okay. It's not a race, and you're not in a rush. If you're in your 20s you still don't know what your passion is. That's okay. You're in your 30s and you still don't know what your passion is. That's okay. In your 40s you still know what your passion is. That's okay. Be in your 50s Well, you get the point. Just look at Stanley, you can hit your stride at any age. Want to hear about all the things I'm passionate about?
