At Haywire Inc., we believe that choosing a career means you back it up with passion and interest. Without passion and enthusiasm, success does not make its way to you so well. Along with having the drive to want to do something we also think you should use your curiosity to find what it is that you want and would love to do. According to a blog on Success Magazine, by Lewis Howes — Howes says, “When considering a career and a lifestyle, people often offer the advice to follow your passion. It seems like solid advice, but what happens if you don’t know what your passion is? People ask me all the time how to find their passion, which is always a hard question for me to answer. Until my conversation with Elizabeth Gilbert. You might know her as the author of the New York Times best-selling book turned movie, Eat, Pray, Love. What you might not know is that her perspective on following your passion is much different than you may have ever heard.”
“It is always hard for individuals to understand that passion and curiosity go hand-in-hand. Curiosity fuels passion because it drives us to want to go somewhere in life. It is not any fun to accomplish anything without challenges in the way. Challenges make us more diligent and strong. Challenges inspire us to reach our highest potential,” says Danielle Hay, managing director of Haywire Inc. According to Howes, he says that the writer Gilbert insists that we follow what makes us curious. She believes that this is where purpose lies and helps us discover concepts we never knew about ourselves.
Howes cleverly states, “It’s not always easy to cross into the unknown and try something new, but that’s what I love about Liz describing this as curiosity. Often at times, whether in business or in life, fear holds us back from discovering what our purpose is. It can be disguised as anxiety, apathy or acidity, but if we permit ourselves to explore our curiosity, it can lead us to finding our passions.” At Haywire Inc., we completely and wholeheartedly agree. In order to choose a path, curiosity is important, and it will help you on your way.
