I've always thought that everyone had a passion — something that they loved to do and wanted to make an entire future out of. Well, maybe I'm not normal, but I've realized that is not quite the case for me.
There are things that I like to do, things that I enjoy. But there is nothing that I have dreamt my whole life of doing, and that's okay.
In fact, most people who have something that they're really passionate about don't end up making a career out of it. I don't think anyone woke up one day and thought, I'm really passionate about math and I want to do it every day for the rest of my life. No. Most likely, they realized they were pretty good at math and could make a potential career out of it. Same goes for doctors, dentists, etc. Are you passionate about teeth? Probably not. But we all know being a dentist is a great career that pays well.
My point is, many people choose career paths simply because it is the smart thing to do. It is not abnormal to choose a career that will make you the most money. I'm not saying we should all hate what we do with our lives simply because it makes us richer. I'm saying that we should stop asking people why they do what they do or why they chose the major that they did.
Maybe I'm not exactly passionate about business, but it's a major that interests me and gives me several different options for my future. I didn't dream of being a business student my whole life, it just sort of happened.
For those of you who have dreamt your whole life of being a cop or a doctor, good for you! I'm honestly a bit jealous that I never found that one thing that I dreamed of doing forever. I'm seeing where life takes me and there is nothing wrong with that.
