"What do you do?"

A simple question that reveals how passionate someone is about their occupation. You meet someone at a gathering and ask them their name, and they enthusiastically (and almost immediately) reply. You ask them where they live, and you get a similar enthusiastic quick reply. Then, you ask them what they do, and you will see two kinds of people:

The first kind is the group of satisfied and successful professionals who exude the confidence and are enthusiastic about their profession. They reply with the same enthusiasm and quickness.

The second kind is the group of people who are not really excited about their occupation, and are just going along to make a living. These people will drone about what they do without any excitement or enthusiasm. These are the ones that need to look inside themselves, find what they are passionate about, and go after it.

Find an occupation that makes you proud. Find an occupation that makes you get up everyday looking forward to going to work.

I remember reading a resume writing book where the author said that we should fine tune our resumes until it is fit to be framed and hung on the wall. Same here. You need to find a profession that you are proud of proclaiming it and announcing it to the world.

Find your passion today and go after it.
