How to find your true passion and what you want to spend the rest of your life doing?

At some point of his great talk, he says that he meets many different types of people, some of who really love what they're doing and can't see themselves doing anything else, because it's simply who they are, not what they do, my question is that, how do you find that you want to be doing for the rest of your life and can't see yourself doing anything else? Anyone with a previous experience can tell us their story and how they got there, or anyone else still in the process tell us about their strategy and how it works may help us conclude to a result.

Closing Statement from Ahmed Soliman

I think the answer in this question lies in knowing your dominant type of intelligent, there's a theory by Howard Gardner that says there are 7 types of human intelligence, linguistic, mathematical, musical, kinesthetic (bodily), visual, interpersonal and intrapersonal.
There could be many extra types of intelligence, but the answer lies in this idea, figuring out your natural intelligence, improving it, and practicing it.

  • May 11 2013: Ahmed,
    I honestly think you don't 'find' that thing - it finds you.
    • May 13 2013: But as a friend said in another comment, it's like someone really willing to fall in love, he keeps on looking for the right person all the time, meet new people, join dating websites, he doesn't just stay still till it finds him
