"Help! I’ve found that I have no passion!"

I've been following your blog for quite sometime now and your recent post struck a chord with me. I've found that I have no passion. Instead, I have a passion for the passionate, in the abstract. When I'm working near people who love what they do, can see their grand vision and have a pathway to the future it inspires me. From a chef to a programmer, if I meet a passionate person, I immediately want to be them.

I've made numerous blogs covering different topics. I've started a variety of different groups at university. I've even switched hobbies from martial arts to programming to yoyos. Nothing seems to stick. It seems I need a mentor of sorts to make sure I stay on track otherwise, some voice in my head is "ooh! try this! no no no! try this!"

My main question is, how to continue? How do you know when you should cut your losses or when you're just being a pansy? Help me focus Sebastian!

I know where you're at and I've got a number of thoughts.

First and foremost, did you see Miguel Hernandez's replied? I wrote "Passion Emerges From Action, Not Contemplation," I asked for Miguel's take because he's a sharp guy.

There's really no such thing as a sure thing, but oh dear God how we wish there was.

Everybody's looking for it. We want guarantees. "If I do this, it's sure to work."

I remember Jordan Belfort doing something on stage where he asked the audience to raise their hands if they would work their asses off for three years if they knew with 100% certainty that they would end up super rich.

Everybody raises their hand. Of course. Duh. You can take a little sweat, a little sacrifice, when you know for sure that you're going to be successful.

Then he asks, what if there was only a 50% chance that it would work?
