Have you ever felt lost because of a leak of passion? Have you maybe been jealous of all the people who knew exactly what they’re passionate about? Do sentences like “I always knew that I wanted to be a dog food taster” make you wanna go up the walls? If you nodded your head at least once, I know exactly how you feel. I am in my mid-thirties and still looking for my passion. At least until a couple of weeks ago. Until I jumped, yes jumped out of my comfort zone and enrolled to a Digital Marketing online course.
It’s not like I have locked myself up before and I was waiting for faith to knock on my door and present my passion on a silver plate. I was meeting people, joining meetups, and experiencing tons of new stuff. But until now, there has never been a reason for me to stay up late at night because I was working passionately on something. Or do you know the guys who forget to eat because they are so into their work, that they don’t even hear their stomach rumble? Ha! Never could that have happened to me. Until now.
If you are anything like me and you are not 100% sure, oh let’s be honest, not even 50% sure what you want to do with your life, then you are where I was four weeks ago. Aimless. Passionless. Goalless.
Four weeks later I am staying up late at night working passionately on my assignments. Using every single minute checking on the new lessons and spending my time on the subway re-reading my notes. Sometimes I even forget to grab lunch 😉 I feel like I have a purpose and that I will be able to help other people. I feel motivated, energized, engaged and encouraged all at the same time. I don’t want to kid myself. I am not a hero or a Samaritan. But I feel like I finally have found something that I will be able to get excellent at. And all I did to get me on the right path to mastery was signing up for the Digital Marketing Nanodegree.
