This actually really helped me a lot! Now that I think of it, I've been chasing this "dream" so hard it was taking over my entire life and stressing about it so much I might have been quite unpleasant to be around. Hearing this talk made me come to a lot of realizations - I've been working with my "dream" but I'm not actually happy, only stressed out. I'm feeling as if I have no free time because I focus too much on "getting better" in my career so I can come even further. I realize my free time should be my passion and stop trying to chase it in what I do for work. :)

Disagree. Someone can be driven but not necessarily passionate about the process if they have a bigger picture about what they want to achieve.

"being passionate with whatever's right in front of you," or, how she put it, wise words. Great Ted.

Best TED talk I've ever watched! The message is simple and so important. Also, this is particularly refreshing given the plethora of facile TED talks out there about ~finding your passion~
Moonz (6 дней назад)
she's so right. passion is an emotion and it often gets confused with long-term happiness. stressing about what we want is a waste of time. just do what you like right now (but have a back up plan)

This is exactly what I needed to hear at exactly the right time. I am going to watch this video everyday.

no i don't like it, basically you're affirming that it's ok to settle for less than who we could be . it's ok if there's nothing you can do about it, but on the other hand if you know what you should be doing or have at least a smaaal idea about it and you're not doing it because of society (how they would see you and what they may think about you) because changing your life requires you to get out of the race for a moment (and this moment might be a long time) so that you can focus only on yourself and hence other will have a low opinion of you, but it's ok because you know where you're headed and you're the only one who can see the bigger picture . i mean, i believe that you have just one life to live, and there's nothing worse than feeling and believing that at some point in your life you could have changed it but you settled for less than who you could be, you didn't live to your potential and now it's too late to do anything about it (you don't wand to feel that)

You don’t know that you’re passionate about something until you get out of your “comfort zone” and go out and do it. That’s when you’ll realize your full potential and later become more passionate about what you do because you know you worked for it.

Well I turned down a full time job to stick to my two flexible part time jobs which allowed me to work on my business. I wanted the full time for security but felt that I would rather risk and bet on myself than put in more hours for full time. So in my case I had two risk to asset lol. The full time could’ve helped me gain more experience in my business but I preferred to just get mentors instead which is more beneficial.

Meaning of life is to live it. I asked a lot of old people for advice and they keep telling me to experience everything, explore all aspects of life and be happy. Stop saying you need passion in order to have “purpose”. Your interests even change as you age. Its not that deep.. just live life.
Alana Chriest (12 дней назад)
Interesting perspective. Valuable to glean from. However, there are so many stereotypes that it is hard to not consider this more than a fleeting tangent. I like the message that passion is not always grand. However, passion can be, and often is a motivator. What about regret later in life? That is a real psychological and emotional affect, especially when intuition is not followed. I suggest to take this with a grain of salt.

So what would someone who just graduated with a diploma in a field he doesn't really like and wants to go to school again for doing bachelors would do? For the record, I graduated from Hospitality management, and not really sure if I like it. I regret choosing it. So the next program I go for, I want to be so sure about it, but not really sure what courses interests me and what to do. So what now?

I disagree with her as best I could understand what she was trying to convey.I made some money as a lawyer a career I was pushed into by my father.I didn't like anything about the job when I started and it only got worse over the years.Seems to disprove all this woman said.

When she said you might be missing your love I recalled today's popular news about how a gamer broke with his gf (hottest Mexican woman) so that he can concentrate on call of duty
Thank you so much for this ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ that is a beautiful quote and those were very inspiring and calming words. “You don’t follow your passion. Your passion follows you.”

Watching this talk and reading through some comments has opened my eyes a bit. There are different sorts of people, and neither end of the spectrum is better than the other. On one, you have people who are really passionate about one thing from day one and driven to pursue it. On the other are people who don't have a particular passion but could thrive in about any occupation. Then there are all the people at different points in between. I have some things I'm really passionate about. My issue was that I felt like I had to pick one. And people have pressured me to pick a safe field of study that would lead to jobs with a better chance of bringing in steady money. But I refused because I knew I'd always have a hole in my life if I spent most of my time in an office instead of doing the things I knew I loved. Now I'm realizing there are ways I can use all my interests to work together. I'm also realizing, especially since hearing this talk, that I have been a bit egotistical about my passions, and that's something I need to change. There's nothing wrong with you if you don't know what your passion is, and there's nothing wrong with you if you can't stand the idea of a steady office job because you've got something else you're driven to do. We each have our strengths, but society tends to favor some over others and put people in boxes.

This speech made me feel demotivated and that life is dull. -__-" I think its a personal choice in way of life. Life is dull if you just wait for passion to come find you. Instead I think we should go all out to find passion. Start doing something, anything!!! Staying at home feeling fearful of wrong action or wrong choice is not going to help. Finding a passion doesn't mean you ignore the practical need of finding a job first. You need to take care of yourself first before you can find passion. Once a paycheck job is more or less secured, start searching for passion.

Puppets of capitalism would do anything they are offered , real human beings do have passion, philosophy ,and purpose. Thing called passion is not dead. I would be passionate to clean the glasses if the system was fair and humane.

Thanks for the Video! Forgive me for butting in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you heard about - Chiveard Discovering Potential Framework (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a good one of a kind guide for finding your true calling and achieving success without the normal expense. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my buddy at very last got great success with it.

Isn’t that the same moral at the end - keep finding something you feel passionate about if you don’t know what you feel passionate about? And don’t wait around for it for those who are waiting around for it and not doing anything about it? I think many people are doing and trying things and still at the same stage many people are stuck on - the truth is there is no answer beyond this and you have to carry on finding it yourself.

Omg this is brilliant! The point is to find the kind of problems that YOU like to solve and then find someone who needs help solving them xD If you aren't passionate about the actual subject now, that's not a big deal, it will come. As long as you somewhat like it it's fine.

This just showed me how there is no real formula for a successful life. What is success anyway to you? I just feel like i enjoy doing so many things. I could be a shoe maker for the rest of my life and I would be happy, as much as I would be being a dressmaker. This talk really relaxed me because it makes me feel like everything is going to be fine if I just keep moving instead of waiting for something to hit me. I graduated high school just yesterday, I'm 18 and Im so unsure about everything. The worst part is that some days i feel like everything is going to be fine and others I feel so depressed because I don't have a life plan. I wish I was the type of person that didn't over think so much

I got very little from her presentation except that it can be frustrating when you worry about choosing the wrong job or career even though you know you would be free to correct your course, its unpleasant to have to undo things.
