Why this course

A working adult spends 8 - 12 hours a day either doing work or thinking of work. That is 50 - 65% of waking hours. Yet, studies reveal that most people are disengaged at work, and don't find their work meaningful.

"Find something you love and you'll never work a day in your life", said a wise man.

 

Passion is just not another overhyped word. Finding your passion is like finding the fire within and the fuel that keeps it alive. It's one's passion, what one believes in; that keeps them alive and makes this world a better place. However, finding one's passion is not an overnight epiphany. There is a process to it. It takes time, sincere effort, and curiosity to find one.

 

With this course we have put together tools to help you identify your passion.

 

By the end of this course either you will find your passion or you will start your journey on a path to finding one.
