The Passion Test is a process designed to help people find and focus on their passions. Chris and Janet Bray Atwood developed the Passion Test. It's available in multiple formats, including a book, e-book, online course and teleseminar. The Passion Test also has a certification program, which allows people to become certified in the process and then instruct others. Online content is available on ThePassionTest.com.
School is how many students find their passions, through classes or counselors. Adults who aren't in school can look for college courses that appeal to them, or meet with a career counselor.
One simple way for a person to identify his passions is to think about what he enjoys in life. He can then look for ways to make those passions more of a focus in his life.
