I believe it to figure it out is to find out something that you love doing, and you'll keep on doing it, even if you don't get paid for it.
I see you answered your own question here and it was pretty much the same answer that I was going to give you. If I had to live on what I make writing which is one of my passions I would starve
I've found that the best way to go is by trial and error.
First, it helps to just blue sky your life and think of the craziest, coolest things you would want to do. Next, actually try those things.
Think you might want to work for a chocolate factory? Try it! If it doesn't work out, then it doesn't work out.
If actually interning or working somewhere is not an option, I recommend informational interviews. Do anything you can to actually test out your potential passion.
Before long, you'll find your sweet spot!
In order to find your true passion one must experiment trying new and different things. As you get involved in a variety of things you will find there are some you come back to again and again. You will find a deep draw for doing whatever it is and pretty soon you understand there is a passion inside that desires to be heard.
A person can be passionate about many things. To find 'your true passion' is an exercise in life. Learning those things that speak to you and you value. Then looking to activities that fit within your preferences or favorite activities. Sometimes your true passion finds you on the road of life. Seeking out new experiences and doing things that are new and slightly uncomfortable can be a great way to find new areas of excitement and passion.
I agree with SImone, through a series of trial and error.
Often times, I figure it out by the events that makes me happy. I used to work in an environment that I didn't feel comfortable in, and it made me feel like I was wasting time. It wasn't until my last employment where I've understood what I needed to do in order to find what suitable for me.
Family and friends can have a big impact on this subject as well. If the people you care about are doing certain things, you'd usually find it's only relevant to be part of the group.
My passion comes from the heart.
It is always the burning desire to do something that I have passion and stick with it until the end.
It will always result a great sense of achievement. It is what I always desire when my heart feels the desire of passion. So, it will define my true passion.
Ask yourself: What is the one thing you would do if you knew you couldn't fail?
What is the one thing you would do with your life if earning money was not an object?
Try anything and everything. If you hate it or even if you are bored with it, then if it can be avoided I suggest you don't waste your time with it.
I have known my passion since I was a young kid. That hasn't stopped me from finding a lot of other things I am passionate about along the way:)
Always try new things. Eventually, one of them will be something you are passionate about.
Figure out what you like to live for and you will discover your passions.
@ edhan Sometimes your passion is not sticking through things. One big example is someone who starts multiple businesses and then sells them. The passion they have is in the research and start-up, but once the business gets going they get bored and need to move on to something else.
I also think that passions can change over time. Although one way to discover your passion is to remember what you enjoyed as a kid, you may no longer be passionate about GI Joe.
It's doing something you love to do and never thinking whether you're getting paid for it or not. Actually, you'd do it for free. But, when you are paid for doing something you love, you say, "I'm actually getting paid for this? Something I love to do? Wow-Wee!!!"
I wrote a hub about this -- it's a process that starts in your formative years that, if left unchecked, will still be there later on because it's the thing that "lights you up".
