How do you define interest? Tope Mandy writes .
Your interest is anything that concerns, involve, draws your attention, or arouses your curiosity. Interests are the bedrock of our passion, value systems, attitude and eventually decision making. For example, when I was growing up, I developed interest in studying the brain and all of its mechanism, I was fascinated by how the brain coordinates all of the bodily functions and processes. This singular interest formed the basis of some of my most important relationships at the time, even the things that I spent the most time doing. Eventually, as Jamb approached and I was asked to make a decision about what I wanted to study at the university, I chose psychology because I reasoned that it would help me further advance my interest in the study of the brain. Needless to say, it doesn’t happen like this for everybody. There are a thousand and one reason why many people eventually don’t pursue their interest or even forgo it for something that pays and fits societal norm. However, following one’s interest can be a pointer to one’s eventual happiness.
Interest and attitude
Most of the time, many people try to hide their subconscious desires, passion and or values. Even when it’s easy to hide your interest, we can see from your decisions and actions what your interests really are. The way to show integrity is to ask yourself, why are my here? Am I more interested in the wellbeing of what is going on here or am I here for selfish reasons? Attitude cannot be hidden, no matter the level of pretence, eventually, your attitude will push some things to light. The same with your decisions, if your interest is in Sales department and you are the MD, somehow, your decisions may be biased towards that department, enough to prove what really it is you are trying to hide. Is it a Job, a relationship, a career decision or you are about to take a simple step, ask yourself again, is this in line with my interest? Why is this important?
Why are Interests important?
In a society where there are many distractions, taking time to identifying your interest is important now more than ever.
Pursuing your interest gives a sense of meaning and authenticity in life. You never have to look to another for direction because you know where you are going and why. And you never have to be carried away by all the distractions around.
Interest form our unconscious value systems and decision making. Tim Lahaye tells us that we act the way we do because of our temperaments, temperaments influences our interest, interest sometimes influences our actions and actions are what people see and judge us based on.
Focusing on your interest opens the way for you to be in tune with yourself as well as helping you channel your energy on matters of priority rather than just going on with the norm or with what society says is important.
