My career was smoothly moving upward after I graduated from college, it was in line with my major and what I loved doing — writing. I couldn’t ask for a better deal. I was excited and I wholeheartedly immersed myself in a promising advertising career. Five years into it, I was burnt out, I took off on a year sabbatical. Upon returning home, I went back into the same industry in a different capacity. Halfway into this second tour of duty, I again started feeling the symptoms of unalignment, unsettling motions of monotony, and the same experience repeated itself. The awards and acknowledgments I gained couldn’t calm my erratic lifestyle. Yet, I didn’t dare to quit because the career gave me security and stability. I toughed it up in hopes things would change. The longer I waited, the deeper I buried myself into daily tasks and responsibilities. Soon enough I was paralyzed by fear and self-doubt, I had invested all my time in a career. I couldn’t see myself exploring other paths of opportunity. I told myself, “I don’t have time to start learning something new. I’m too old to change career path.”
I felt trapped. I was short-tempered, impatient, and judgmental. Vacations and occasional days off couldn’t fully recharge my depleted energy. I was tired, yet I couldn’t sleep. I had almost everything in life, yet I felt lifeless. I was emotionally malnourished.
“How did I get here? What got me into this vicious cycle?”
My best friend introduced me to a self-improvement program. I was awakened by my own nightmare and was thrilled to realize I could change gear. The program opened the door and took me to a new stage of awareness. As the momentum grew, I turned my life around toward a more fulfilling path.
Then one day, I learned about a study that had been done in the 1980s, on a 100 of the most influential, financially successful, and fulfilled individuals in the United States. The study found that these people had one thing in common. All of them were living their Top-5 Passions!
