Passion vs aptitude

I have discovered that I can have an aptitude for something but lack a passion for it. I was once told by an economics professor that I was good at economics and that I should have gone into that field. The only thing I felt like economics did for me was give me a good nights sleep. I could start reading an economics textbook and I could go right to sleep.

Having a passion for something means that it is it's own reward. It is something to look forward to and that can capture my attention for a long time. Could it be that my A.D.D. only shows up when I lack passion. I am committed to continue to discover and enjoy my passions by looking deep inside and noticing what makes my heart sing.
