One of the reasons that so many of us are frustrated with not being able to figure out what it is that we like doing, and what it is that we are passionate about is the fact that we restrict our search to only those crafts that could potentially turn into a money making career or venture. This is unfortunate, because in a way it clouds our judgment of determining what we really like. There are people who don’t follow their interests because they don’t see a big $ sign at the end of that road. There is also another group of those who go into software engineering, accounting and nursing for job security even though they couldn’t care less about those areas of work.
Being passionate about something doesn’t mean that you have to dedicate every moment of your waking life to it, even though that’s a nice possibility. It also doesn’t mean that you have to make a lot of money or any money from it. What you enjoy doing and what you are interested in is not and should not be measured by how much demand there is out there for it. If you like painting, of playing a guitar or photographing predators in action, you don’t have to do 24/7. Just make sure that you do it regularly if that’s something that makes you happy regardless of whether you get to sell it to anyone out there.
