"Finding your passion." - A short and seemingly harmless phrase that is used very often today. Meanwhile, “finding one's passion” is the holy grail for a generation that is doing so well that it has given itself a new task to make life complicated and difficult again.

“Finding your passion” is a great burden that rests on the shoulders of millions of young people. Anyone who has not found their passion lives in a hamster wheel and is actually a stupid person who has not understood the meaning of life.

One should stop everything. Go new ways. Everyone just wants to exploit you and that's why you should do "your own thing". Employers are bad and just a waste of time anyway. It's better to start a business right away, create courses, sell something and travel the world.

Great idea.

It is not mentioned that this message has extreme disadvantages, especially for young people. That this message drives many people completely in the wrong direction, unfortunately not.

Let's face the facts: young people have no idea.

Yes, as a rule they are more familiar with new technology, know pop culture, are dynamic, efficient, willing to learn, some are also very intelligent - but almost no one has real knowledge, real experience.

And yet everyone expects enormous results, earth-shattering enlightenment and a responsible role as soon as they have finally found "their passion".

That can't be anything.

The burden of someone who searches intensely for their passion is gigantic. You want to formulate your passion somehow and you can't do it specifically because it's simply not possible. And so you keep looking until you are completely insecure. Because most people are interested in many things and are very good at several things. It's nothing special, it's always been like that.

It's OK.

If you are desperately looking for your passion, but have only gotten to know a few different subject areas, you shouldn't be surprised that you won't get anywhere.

Regardless of whether you are 20 or 55 years old: People who have not tried a lot cannot simply say what they are good at and what they enjoy.

Because you don't have a clue of the things that can be done in the world. They do not know whether the idea and reality of a task or a task area are identical.

Imagination is great, but if you want to find your passion or something that you really enjoy, you have to try different things.

This is exactly why there are courses, further training courses, universities, internships, trainee programs, etc. Many people try something out briefly and then say: "Isn't my passion, don't feel like the hamster wheel, I'll do something of my own."

It's also great when you have a specific, really good idea that really suits you. Pretty stupid though, if not.

Because then you may miss the chance to really find your passion, to gain experience, to develop your personality, to make valuable contacts, to get to know yourself better, to mature and above all: to discover real opportunities / market gaps to help you To make the world a little bit better.

Instead, many people who are looking for their passion and therefore block everything that doesn't look like passion end up with a course / e-book / blog about it: "How to find your passion".

What do you say on the subject? What do you think is the best way to find out what you love?
