How? Finding My “Fire” My Passion.
After finishing college(high school) at 17 years old, I was faced with the decision with what to do with my life, this question turned out to be more difficult than expected. As like most high school kids I really had no idea as to who I was and what I really wanted.
Faced with the pressure to go from high school straight to university I started thinking like most people “well whats is a safe and well-paying job?” so I started looking at being paramedic, accountant, and engineer… long story short I ended up taking a gap year and worked. By the end of the year I had found what I enjoyed to do and could make a job out of it, following that I found this so called “fire” desire that my uncle had told me about, My uncle asked me one question “was there a burning fire inside of me to pursue accounting?” and me completely lacking self-awareness somehow managed to make myself think that I liked accounting reply back with “I think so..”. Naturally at the time because I’ve never experienced that ‘fire’ i didn’t fully understand what he was referring to, I can now expand on this question he asked me, if I ask you “what is your fire, your passion what you could do for 18 hours a day for all days of the year?” if you hesitate at all you haven’t found it yet.
How I found my ‘passion’ what I loved to do was because I took 10 minutes out of my day to look at a YouTube video about computer programming which sparked my interest from then on my interest in programming and tech grew and grew. If I had never taken that 10 minutes to look at that video I most likely would be in a depressed unexciting place, studying accounting with my only outlet by partying(aka wasting time). Continue to learn and experience new things you will never know what you might end up loving.
