What did you do to find your dream and passion in life?

Currently I realized that I have no dream or passion in my life. Maybe that's why I felt lost, like I have no where to go, no destination at all.

When I was younger, I had passions and dreams. Like fashion, architecture, interior design, crafting, biology and so much more. I also dreamed to be a fashion designer, architecture, doctor and like lots other kids, be an astronaut.

But now, when I think of those (my old passions and dreams), its no longer give me the excitement feeling.

Maybe you guys can help me and maybe other people who still on their way to find their own dream and passion in their life.

Thanks :)

  • Sep 30 2013: Go out and try! I find it difficult to believe the truth of these dreams or passion if you do not have an ounce of experience in the said field. Many childhood dreams are simply misconceptions put into our heads by media without concrete understandings of the industry. I remembered applying to a job and was pondering if I should accept the offer since I was not sure if I would like it or not. My mother simply responded that how would I know if I do not even give it the slightest try? Another example is the motivation to get involved in theatre. This feeds in a positive loop that that I enjoy working in theatre, that I love going to theatrical shows, that I want to do theatre, that I am passionate about theatre. If you do not try, you will never know.
