In this article, you find a fantastic summary about what exactly is passion.
The author, Caroline Beaton, work with millenials, but I am sure her article is also relevant for non-millenials, like us. ;-)
Firstly, passion does not equal to (life) purpose. Purpose is extrinsically driven (seeking connections or with larger purpose in life), whereas passion is intrinsically driven (what I value, love or get energy from).
Secondly, passion is shorter term oriented. It changes with different life phases. A quote by Terri Trespicio in her TedxTalk, "Passion is not a plan. Passion is a feeling and feeling change.""
We can find our passion with our DISCOVER Motivator scores, even when our passion changes throughout our lives.
