We need to find our own path, because it’s about what we love and not about what they love. – Maya Ackerman
Is it really possible to find your passion amidst a struggling economy?
In recent years, we’ve experienced quite possibly the worst drought ever when it comes to employment. The effect it’s made on our self-confidence and happiness has been drastic and has been something i’ve personally spoken about in a previous article and in particular, how it lead me onto starting this blog. One thing I haven’t mentioned is whether it’s possible to do something you love when you’re in financial difficulties.
This is a problem many of us face due to having little choice but to make decisions solely on our ability to survive and get by. After all, how can we quite possibly survive without taking care of our basic necessities?
This leads to a paradox and sends us on a downward spiral. It’s a basic problem i’ve found, which i’ve struggled to answer on a number of occasions due to being a victim to this very issue myself and only now finding a way to rise above it.
The solution is perhaps one that becomes more obvious the further you begin to understand what passion actually is and why it’s imperative to pursue it regardless of your situation.
