"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.

When You're Not At Your Best, Do Your Best Anyway

On Cameron Chardukian

Yesterday sucked. It was one of those days where each time I had a chance to pick between the right choice and the wrong choice I ended up picking the wrong one. I ended up literally sick to my stomach by the end of the day, had a broken night of sleep, and felt the negative momentum carrying in today.

I know I’m not operating at 100%, but I’m here typing my second blog post of the day. Why? Because I don’t have a choice. The most important time to do your best is when you’re not at your best because that is what’s going to separate you from everyone else. Most people accept failure when they feel down. Not me, and you though.

Emotions come in waves. You’re not always going to feel your best, but you’ve got to put it all out there anyway. The difference between professional writers, and amateurs is professionals get past the block and write anyway. The difference between Michael Jordan, and the cats in your community league?

Michael Jordan made the effort to improve everyday regardless of his emotions, and he always gave everything he had even when others believed he didn’t have anything left to give. Mike didn’t drop 45 with the flu on accident.
