What If You Don’t Know What Your Passion Is? Where to Look | Liz Strauss at Successful Blog. Last week I spoke with a number of young adults who had difficulty telling me what they wanted to do when they finished high school. They had difficulty putting a finger on what they were “passionate about”.

Check out this perspective on knowing what your passion is. Maybe it will help some of you get excited about your future in a way you never have before.
