I don’t know how to find what I am passionate about as it relates to a functioning career. How do I tap into my passion when I don’t know what I am passionate about?

I would like to transition out of IT related jobs/career into something a little less demanding and a little more interesting.

Because every IT related job I have had has required me to wear many hats, I don’t know which function I am more or less passionate about or which function I am better at performing (all of my performance reviews were highly rated).

I enjoy the project management aspect of things, but I don’t care to be micromanaged.
I enjoy working with databases, but I am not that interested in doing only that all day long.
I HATE working with hardware and networks.

I have been the Director of IT, a software implementations engineer, and a project manager but I am not exactly brimming with passion for any of those jobs.

I am thinking I might need to transition out of IT altogether, but don’t know where to go or how to get there.

I am also not certified in anything which has been a deterrent for me. I don’t necessarily do well with testing (I get anxious) and have avoided certifications because of that.

Sorry for being long-winded, but I need help figuring out what to do.
