This is a deep topic and I hope I’m as close to ready as I can for approaching it, so let’s jump into it.
In the past three years I got very interested in self-development and I noticed a pattern across all motivational speakers: they all talk about finding your passion and following your destiny. But what if that’s not possible? What if there isn’t a destiny or a passion?
Our current society explodes in this self-help and self-development area and they keep pushing towards doing what you love, which is awesome! The issues appear when “what you love” changes. It’s like eating your favorite food 24/7. I guarantee you that after one year, that food won’t be your favorite food anymore. That’s exactly what happens with doing what you love.
Maybe you’re so excited and you love doing something for 2 years, but then you realize you don’t love that thing anymore and you fell in love with another hobby or passion, there is nothing wrong with trying that for one year or two. You’ll be so much happier this way than pushing against something you loved in the past at some point.
I guess that the whole point of this life is happiness and I believe we cannot be happy if we go against our will, against our mysterious inner universe. So maybe our passion is not one, but many, and our destiny is made out of dozens of them.
I believe our destiny changes based on every decision we make; therefore, our destiny is a harmony between all the destinies we might have…
How often do you challenge “your destiny”?
