#WhatsNext: Turning passion into action
MANILA, Philippines – “Follow your passion.” It’s well-used advice for when you’re feeling stuck, uninspired, or lost.
But what if you’re not yet sure of what you’re passionate about? Or what if you’ve figured out what you do love, but you don’t know how to start pursuing it?
Maybe you’re worried about not having enough time or money to prioritize your passions. Maybe you’re scared of going at it alone. Or maybe, you’re perfectly OK with your career, your relationships, and your goals, and you just want to discover a source of deeper purpose that will enable you to keep going.
Does this sound like you? If you’re unsure of what your next step should be, we want to help you figure out #WhatsNext.
