How do you align what you're good at with what you're passionate about?

Answer:

I would say: 'Be passionate about what you are good at. They are your talents, and if you use them with love and devotion, just like you do the person you share your life with, then you have passonately alliegned yourself with it all. Love your self, love what you do, and how it makes you feel. The rest will come naturally.'

Answer:

There is a great book called "Work With Passion; How to Do What You Love for a Living" by Nancy Anderson. It goes through step by step to help you figure out how to align your passion and skill/work. I highly recommend it. It is not easy, but then anything really worth doing is not, right? Good luck to all!

Answer:

I don't have an answer but would love to hear what others think. What a great question. I know what I am good at, but can't necessarily connect the dots to passion.
