The Greatest Pain in Passion

by | Jul 20, 2023 | Uncategorized

The greatest pain isn’t starting from square one in your search for your passion.

The greatest pain isn’t trying to figure out what your passion is.

The greatest pain isn’t even in choosing your passion.

The greatest pain is the purgatorial rut of “passion adjacent” – knowing you’re only 0.5 degrees misaligned with what you’re supposed to be doing with your life but can’t see what adjustment you need to make to have the puzzle pieces snap in place.

I wish I could say it was easy. That there was some kind of methodology or mental hack to trick yourself into seeing what’s probably under your nose. But there isn’t.

What my experience has shown is that the only rather poor solution to uncovering the small tweak that needs to be made is sticking with the process.

If you give up, you will never uncover the secret. You’ve got to keep digging until you find the gold.

Even more problematic, you will feel like giving up along the way. If you don’t, then you’re not in the game. And you’ve got to be in the game to score let alone win.

How will you ensure that you stay in the game when everything inside of you is screaming “Get out! It’s a waste of time! Stop sacrificing yourself! There’s no winning move!”

There is no strategy.

The only thing you can hope to depend on is your willingness to persevere.

Are you willing to persevere?
