What about Personality and Passion?
Do you know, our personality can change? So is passion.
World experts (BBC, The Atlantic, UOC, SMH, APA, Wiki, Forbes and more here) say that most of us start with an altered personality from our childhood influences (role model effect). And, over time we may find our true personality.
Most experience severe difficulties that are usually termed midlife crisis, sea change and burn out. Mostly, personality is our superficial - how we express ourself, respond to the environment.
Current research on passion suggests that we need to understand three key things.(1) Passion is not something one finds, but rather, it is something to be developed. (2) It is challenging to pursue our passion, especially as it wanes over time; and (3) Passion can also lead us astray.
In our experience we have come across that the passion is something most of us have inherited from a role-model who might be compatible to our constitution or non compatible. If it's a non-compatible role-model, our personality causes lifelong issues.
Based on various long-term researches, up to 97% people walked away from their occupation that they initially took up based on true passion!
An example. We take the big dog for a long walk, while the chihuahua is left peacefully on our couch. Both stay happy! Similarly, in regard to our core skill set, we need to identify, empower, and engage them and then passion just follows. Life becomes enriched.
While we explore and engage our constitution more and more, our personality transforms and passion evolves.
