This is the secret to find what you love
This is the secret to find what you love.
I recently asked Naveen Jain – how do I find my “moonshot”. The answer was: find your passion and your obsession.
Finding what you love sounds easy – but how do you find what you love? After having done a survey with my roommates – I rapidly understand that few actually gave real advice we can implement. Answers I collected:
- “ Gut feeling “
- “ Through wisdom, experiences and taking risks ”
- “ Through suffering “
- “ When you have a growth mindset “
One of my roommates recommended me something we can all implement and try out:
The Eulerian Destiny – by Tai Lopez:
4 questions to answer:
- What did you have when you were a kid? – in fact, we actually liked things because of the environment we lived in subconsciously.
For me; my parents immersed me in team and individual sports, you taught me to celebrate and to have big dreams. Ask me a question if you want to learn more 😉
- What do strangers compliment you on? – Write all the different compliments you received!
“ You’re a good writer; You’re good communicator; You possess charisma and inspire, you look good, you have a voice, you are passionate“ are the kind of compliment I have received in the past.
- What did you do for the last 10 years?
For me, it is working hard and learning science but never forgetting social life and sport.
- What can you talk effortlessly about Saturday night?
In my case I can talk about wellness, self-development, the value of freedom, how to improve the world, travels and what is not working in our society that has to work soon (monetary system and so one..).
My destiny is, therefore, the intersection of all this: science, health, social activities, relationship building, writing, travels and something which brings this world forward. I have to be in healthcare innovation, enhance collaborations while having international opportunities. What is yours?
“ Only 13 Percent of the US Workforce Is Passionate About Their Jobs “ – Delloite Study, 2017
“ High performing employees have three things in common: talent, high engagement, and 10-plus years of service within the company. “
“ Employees who are engaged are 27 percent more likely to report “excellent” performance.
Every company talks about innovation and the importance of science and technology to enhance it. I started to wonder – what is the real root cause of innovation? People.
It starts with a mindset – but the drive to innovate is enhanced with passion and obsession.
If only 13% of the workforce is passionate; maybe only 1-2% is obsessed.
Do innovation starts with passionate individuals? Maybe it is time to reinvent education.
