If you haven't found your passion in life yet and wonder how to decide on which career track you should start down, here's how to figure it out.

First, start by asking these three questions. Just brainstorm all your answers for each and write them down.

  1. What am I good at?
  2. What do I enjoy doing?
  3. What will people pay for?

Now look at your list, and figure out what things are in all three categories. Those are your ideas! Look for a career that matches up, try it out, and see what works! Here's an excellent visual.

The key here is to Step Up and start something; you can easily get paralyzed by overanalyzing things. Successful people look at the available information, pick the most promising path, and start walking. They don't wait until everything is perfect because it will never be perfect. That doesn't mean they don't take some time to think it through either; they wait until it's good enough to have a decent chance at succeeding, then pull the trigger and go start doing it. Successful people learn to fail fast, learn from their mistakes, then adjust their course and try again. Get started!
