“The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” — Steve Jobs
Passion is one of those words that people use often without really understanding the original meaning of the word. When most people refer to “passion”, they use it to mean strong emotions reflecting an intense desire or boundless enthusiasm.
According to Cambridge English Dictionary Passion is a very powerful feeling, for example of sexual attraction, love, hate, anger, or other emotion.
Passion is something almost every human being wants to pursue.
Passion can be anything that challenges you and motivates you.
Passion is a strong and barely controllable emotion.
Almost everybody wants to live their life passionately but the question is “Why only 1% of people on earth live passionately and become successful?”
Because they are honest to themselves and work very hard to make their dream come true.
They fail thousands of times but they will not even take their one step backwards.
Because they stick to their goals and mindset of winning and most important, they love what they do.
Take Thomas Alva Edison as an example.
While inventing the Bulb, Thomas Alva Edison failed almost 10,000 times but he never lost his hopes and sat down to make Excuses.
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
—Thomas Alva Edison
Passion is what you’re willing to sacrifice lesser leisure and pleasures for.
Passion is not a talent
Talent is the natural ability to do anything well.
Like you are the best bowler in your colony but it does not mean you are passionate about it.
If you only enjoy winning then this is not a Passion.
Both passions and goals are valuable, and the first step is getting clear on your passions. Think about what you will do, be and have when your life is ideal.
One way to live a fulfilling life is to …
… follow your PASSION.
Passion is not an interest.
Let’s say you have an interest in movies, or in songs but can you write scripts for movies day and night?
Or can you learn a new language to watch new movies?
Passion is the emotion that comes from excitement and enthusiasm.
Passion is you are enjoying yourself from keep learning, improving and pushing yourself Everyday
Passion is not about having, but it is about doing
Like the 16th US President Abraham Lincoln loved to read and there were very few books at that time.
Abraham loved reading so much that he would walk 35km to borrow a book at the age of 10.
You cannot find your passion by worrying, or by keeping the mood bad throughout the day.
“If you take any new work or responsibility, then you have 2 ways, either do that work wholeheartedly or don’t start at all, Doing anything other than this is madness” — Oprah Winfrey
Passion is the desire and spirit to do something for which you can let go of fear and comfort.
If you are fond of photography then start taking and uploading photos from your mobile camera.
Meet a professional, experiment with something new
If you do not succeed, you will learn something.
You cannot find your passion with the help of psychological tests.
No one else can tell what your passion is.
It is a matter of heart, it may take some time
It is important that if you have got used to working hard, enjoying living life, then Passion and Success will come looking for you automatically.
Whatever you like, understand it closely.
The best way to find your passion is by actually trying out new things and doing them.
You cant figure out what you like or do not like unless you actually try them.
Often, energy comes after motivation, but if it is not used in the right time, then it will end in a while.
