When traveling, we enjoy developing our personality and interests. Some of us travel for years before settling into a career and some are lucky to make their traveling passion their daily job. Being multi-talented and multi-passionate may sound like a song to many ears in this world. But not to a world where we all assume that choosing one talent should be your goal in life and you should focus on that one talent. Then you have others thinking that you are lucky if you are a multi-talented and multi-passionate because you definitely do not have problems. Is this true?
But what does it really mean to be multi-talented and multi-passionate in life?
A human, in general, is born with a talent or multiple talents. For some travelers, these multi-talents are born along the way and with multi-passionate interests, these talents are multiplied. In the early ages, people with multi-talents and multi-passionate interests were called Renaissance Personalities(RP). Maybe back then RP’s were the genius but now, they seem crazy in today’s world. Just imagine for a second how awkward it would be telling your friends and family that your “problem” in not feeling fulfilled in your current career originated in being multi-talented! I wish you good luck with that conversation! Please observe the expression on their faces, it is priceless!
Where it all started…….
When we were children, we were told to decide what we wanted to do in the future and focus on that because it was important to have a goal and objectives. Many were told growing up that having too many talents was a mental health issue and were advised to go see a doctor. How ironic can life sometimes be. Society reshapes your identity and thoughts through your entire life and even succeeds in making you believe that you indeed have a problem. Many RP’s end up changing careers twenty times in their lifetime and this is not a surprise. Often we start believing what our loved ones are saying and try to fit in the eyes of the so-called ideal career life. What you need is to get used to the idea of your personalities and it may take your entire life to figure it out.
Every acquaintance and country is a new experience, an opportunity to develop new talents and passions. In this changing world, professions disappear, others are born. Technology develops at an insane velocity. We’re all getting more global and linked together. Do not make the mistake many RP’s are making. Do not contemplate that you have a problem and make a choice when you can use all your talents. An RP tends to move on to something completely different and is often not motivated by money or status. Once they reach success, they feel “done.” And thus move on. The challenge has been mastered.
Engage in all your passions. Commercialize them and in this way, you will make your hobbies, your jobs. You should fully embrace your talents and accept yourself. Be patient with yourself and stay motivated and then you will find how exciting and fulfilling life can be when you are an RP.
Just accept the fact that you are simply a multi-talented, multi-passionate person! You are welcome!
