I liked :) But in France I apply to many jobs but I am almost never taken, I am not wanted while I would be pleased to work my best for institutions or companies, unemployment rate is quite high, but still there are jobs there, so I don't understand why I am not hired. I think maybe because I am a bit effeminate, I don't know I don't understand why, because I am not foolish or mental impaired (no harm towards anyone intended) . So that is sad :'( I hope I find a job some day but God will decide

I quit my $17.50/hr job because I absolutely hated it and now I've been sitting at home looking for the "perfect" job. I got a call yesterday from a potential employer who asked if I'd like to take a job at a big bank for $15.00/hr, my heart sank and I declined due to pride. I did not want to take a job that paid less what I was getting paid before. Now it's been 2months and I'm still sitting at home and applying to different jobs. i swear I might just cave in a accept whatever company calls me next.

Terri, You're totally confused about what is passion. I believe that you are concerned with materialism and about achieving exterior signs of success, and that you can't be bothered to find something about which you're passionate. You should listen to Alan Watts' speeches: "When you do what you love doing, without worrying about the money, you'll get so good at it that the money will follow." You don't believe that there's some problem in the world worth solving that deserves your attention? So be it. But stop encouraging people to give up searching for their purpose (or passion) with your rather confusing speech. Thank you! One more thing, passion is not a feeling. Passion arouses feelings. Passion is knowledge about what you MUST do. You must do it and feel compelled to do it, because you have knowledge that it MUST be done, that the world would be a better place it is gets done, and if you don't do it, who will? To understand what passion, purpose, success, and happiness are about, read the book "Our X Factor". I think this will change your mind about what you said. Cheers, XV

I think that the speaker didn't encourage NOT to work on knowing what you like to do in your life. She agreed with the importance of action, as she mentioned in her speech about the remark of her mother telling her to put into action of entering a job again. She also encouraged the audience to solve the favorite problems of their life. Her points of the speech, in my opinion, are "stop agonizing and afraid of not having passion" and "stop judging and pressuring other people by what passion they have". Nowadays our society encourages too much about personal passion, about characteristics and individualism, somehow seems to be kinda suffocating to many people, cause it feels like you need to have this passion thing that keeps you from lagging behind other people. She clearly points out this phenomenon and I think it is really relieving, cause many of us actually didn't know how to articulate this kind of agony that is everywhere in our life. Not everyone is so clear about their life goal at a certain moment in their life. So yes, you must feel compelled to do something, and you must not give up on putting your interests into action. But you don't have to worry about not having passion as somebody on the TV show, you just need to focus on your life, think deeply about what you love to do all the time and then do it and stop agonizing (eg about being different from your friends&colleagues). I really appreciate the speaker for her acute outline of modern contradiction of passion.

It's OK to go for a career you might be "passionate" about, but you need to understand that passion isn't enough. You still have to apply yourself.

Wow, this hits so hard to home. I studied Public Relations throughout college and I knew I always liked that field and I always wanted to be involved in it but first, I had to gain experience through an internship, so I went out to look for it. I figured I was always into the beauty/retail and news network industry and one day, I thought I would probably work for a top company that is associated with those. So I tried applying to numerous companies that focused on those industries in internships for public relations and not a single company even interviewed me then a year later, I found an entry-level marketing position for a local mortgage broker company and even though I knew nothing about the mortgage industry, I realized that I became passionate towards marketing and I learned a lot by working in that company. Meanwhile, that same company needed help with some public relations after not choosing to get help from an agency, so I stepped up to the plate and did some PR work for them and then I realized "wow, this is what I came to school for after all and this was originally my passion... along with writing..". PR was always my passion but what came along for me to be more passionate about was marketing and the general idea that I did not want to just help people but I wanted to see growth in businesses. I think it's okay to work in an industry that wasn't what you hoped for or are more passionate towards. What Ms. Terri Trespicio was saying is true: "Don't wait, instead spend your time and attention solving your problems; look for problems that need solving, be generous, and people will thank you.. and pay you for it. That is where passion is when your energy and effort will meet someone else's need... You don't follow your passion, your passion follows you".

im 29 and i never had a passion to be honest... i tryed many many thing and kept failing in everything, and nothing was realy fun to do... i failed in school i failed with social contacts i failed at jobs (actually i dont have a job for 10 years) i feel like i have depression and i think "hey lets try this and this it looks cool and fun" but my next thoughts are already "im gonna fail again anyway" so i sit here crying from night to night and thinking about to get run over on purpose, a life full of failure and disrespect.. how to get up with all this in the past, the next failure hurts even more.. its burning, life feels like a jail

loveXyou (9 дней назад)
maybe someone understands me: my problem with these talks is always, that I don't think I'll be satisfied by "helping others". I worked two years in a social job (children nursery) and I kinda came to the point, where I know that my passion is not there when I'm "helping others". Maybe it's a lack of social competences idk, but I'd like to make m y s e l f happy with what I'm doing, sure if I'm helping others by that than that's fine, but it's just not my main goal... anybody out here understanding? ^^

Passion looks different for everyone. I was passionate about my career in the nonprofit sector, but it was destroying my personal life. I had to make some tough decisions and it's been a journey, but now I am doing what I love and thriving in my life and career! This IS possible for everyone; however, it is important to note that it isn't always easy...

There is a passionate element within most roles. So while the person washing windows probably isn't passionate about "clean glass", they might be passionate about climbing/rappelling, or architecture, which has some overlap into the window washer role.

Dont follow passion, what follow?
Danny Nghiem (18 дней назад)
“Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping... waiting... and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir... open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we'd be truly dead.”

Thank God for someone with common sense and balance. I am so sick and tired of the idea that you can only be excellent at one thing and if you don't find out what it is you're a failure. People want to change the world but they don't want to pay off their debts.

Your talk is good for the mass and those who just want to live even if they don't matter and if they disappear no one will care because you can pick the next guy.. there is nothing wrong with that if u ok being normal.. but not all of us want to just live like another number... i suffocate when i work for others or when i do something i am not passionate about... did u get it? i don't think so

she just said "solving your favourite problem", i',d love to solve the problem related to the thing that i passionate about, and I hate to solve a problem which is not related to what i passionate about, so you still need to figured out what you passionate about. yes, follow the opportunity, but in the same time, u still need to take a time and figure out what you passionate about.

i just think about that we all know the moment we feel passionate, but the thing is, we don't have the clue to be professional with this. Because there are so many people who feel the same with any field. We unconsciously know that we need to be competitive with others. And it's the biggest obstacle in our lives.

I think she is saying that if you don't have a passion... just do a bunch of things that pique your interest and provide an opportunity to learn. At the end of the line there will be things you are more pulled towards and those are your "passions."

There is no one solution for all situations. Some people must follow their passion to be happy, some people r motivated by success to be passionate about something, some people just don’t care as long as it is a paycheck—it all comes down to the individual and their mind set. Some people can find passion in what they do even if that was not the initial plan while other can’t. I think the fundamental message is make the best of what is on your plate. Finding a job where you get pay well and probably in your area of likening/passion/expertise could be harder than years ago. At the end of the day, the bills need to be pay—so any job would be good; and having a mindset to enjoy whatever you can out of your situation is the healthiest and would take you further in life and making ends meet than waiting and being stuck.

It is interesting because today I was writing 3 questions on my whiteboard 1) what is my goal? 2) what is my passion? 3) what is my biggest want in life? I saw your video and I found that "Passion is a feeling and feelings change" and then I saw another video and I changed the whole question from "What is my passion" to "What is valuable". From past 6 months, I am jobless and before I was working for 10 years out of which 8.5 years I spent in one company. Everything was good even in bad times but things changed and I lost my comfort zone. Honestly, I realized working and stuck in one company for so long was my comfort zone and was a bad idea. But the only thing was holding me back to stay was a job rotation. In your video, you highlighted same as your mom advice but the only difference is that my job rotation was once imposed and other 3 times was an opportunity. Today, I am sitting in my room and asking few questions myself and thanks to your video for helping me to change my thought process in my decision making.

I'm a gearhead. That is my passion. I'll never be rich, I'll spend my entire life covered in grease, dirt and petroleum products. I'm sore at days end, I'm exhausted and covered in filth every day. But when I start driving home from work, I turn on the metalhead rock and by the end of three blocks, I've got a smile you could see on Google maps. My advice to everyone is to find something that you can do that gives you satisfaction at the end of day regardless of how you feel or look. Money is great, but happiness..... That is the the secret of a lifetime career, and emotional stability. Jobs may blow, bosses may be pricks, but if you can smile about what you have done on your way home, you are in at the very least a halfway decent place. Amazing enough, this also applies to every aspect of your life. Thonk about it....

Thank you for posting this. Maybe "passion" is the wrong word. How 'bout "interest". What "interests" you? What are you "interested" in? If you were interested in helping resource-poor people get access to quality healthcare, would it be better for you to take a job working for a non-profit bringing health clinics to rural India, or would it be better for you to take some meaningless editor job at Martha Stewart?

Tania Watkins (2 месяца назад)
we ask teenagers to make a life altering decision ... when they are teenagers. When getting up on time is a challenge and thinking things through is a biological incapability of teenagers. It took me until I was 30 and a huge student loan to figure it out. When it comes to my daughter, I will be telling her to take a gap year or two and figure it out. Because when it comes to jobs, its the worst bits you need to make sure you can live with rather than the best. The best bits get you out of bed in the morning but if you can't live with the worst, you'll fail.

This has changed my life. I was so stuck with the process of following passion that I actually forgot I am now continuing it just coz I have made some image of myself that how passionate I am coz people have been giving my examples. Whereas I know I hardly enjoy doing it with the same zeal now and getting attracted to new but I shut down myself saying don't get distracted you passionate lady.
