Crocuses are in full force right now, the weather is finally breaking here in New York City and — a brand new season of Game Of Thrones has just premiered!

Life is good, and I’m grateful.

But when I think back to my earlier self, I often had a hard time enjoying simple pleasures because so much of my mental and emotional energy was focused (umm, obsessed) with figuring out my life’s passion.

In other words, I spent an extraordinary amount of energy trying to figure out exactly what I was supposed to do with my life.

After much self-torture, buckets of tears, loads of “tests” and hundreds of hours of research, I thankfully came to some useful realizations around this idea of finding one’s passion.

If you’ve ever struggled to find your passion in life, today’s episode of MarieTV was made for you.

DIVE DEEPER: Struggling to choose just ONE thing to do? You’re not broken, you’re multipassionate! Here are five ways to thrive as a multipassionate entrepreneur.

A few extra notes on today’s episode.

1. Skills and strengths trump passion when it comes to doing deeply rewarding work that matters. When you employ your natural strengths as well as skills you’ve honed and mastered over time, satisfaction abounds.

2. Passions change.

3. Once you’ve done your research and you’ve intelligently thought something through, you’ve got to take action to find your own clarity.

After you’ve had a chance to watch today’s MarieTV, I’d love to hear from you in the comments.

Have you ever struggled to “find your passion” — and if so, what helped you crack the code?

If you’re still on the hunt, let me know your specific action plan, based on today’s episode.

C’mon over to the comments and add your voice to the discussion.

Of course, if you’re a fellow GOT fan, let me know that too!

With love,
