I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts, Lewis Howes’ The School of Greatness. The talk was “You Already Have the Answer.”
Prior to this, I was beginning to craft my plans for my next career move(s). People kept saying, “Follow you passion.” But my passion for what I used to love is gone. Thing is, I don’t know how to move to another field as all the skills I developed were on only one field. Also, I don’t have any other passion.
So now I’m following my curiosity . . . something I picked up from Elizabeth Gilbert’s talk during the Oprah SuperSoul Session.
And as I was about to retire for the night, I asked myself, “If I already know the answer, what would it most likely be?”
The response was almost immediate. The answers were staring me in the face. I wasn’t watching those K-Dramas all these years, and watching movies for nothing. I was doing little things which I thought were just hobbies (or sadly, waste of what could have been productive time) for a reason.
So now, sitting beside me is a notebook with a list of things that bring me joy. They are such a massive deviation from the once-grand and great dreams I’ve had for my life. I know how to get to those dreams. I have had a taste of it. And I am not happy.
I knew something wasn’t right. Something important–a non-negotiable–was missing.
I still do not know what that is. So definitely I have to follow my “curiosities.” Even if I fail, I would have lived again. I would have learned more about myself.
Perhaps along the way, I will figure out what my next journey is going to be.
