What is Passion?
Let’s start by understanding that What Passion is.
Passion is an intense desire or enthusiasm for something.
Passion can be anything that simultaneously challenges you, intrigues you and motives you.
Passion is anything like you love to play cricket, playing video games, learning to code, graphic designing, Web designing, or anything you love to do it wholeheartedly.
Of course passion alone is not enough — we only hear about the passionate success stories, but we never hear about the people who gave it their all and still failed. But not many people became successful without passion.
Take Elon Musk, for example. The man is as close to the definition of entrepreneurial success as one can get– he founded an internet publishing company and sold it for $307 million at the age of 28, which he used part of the proceeds to fund his next venture not even one month later. That venture eventually became Paypal, which he later sold for $1.5 billion. From those proceeds, he then started SpaceX, Tesla Motors and SolarCity.
Not only did he start SpaceX, Tesla Motors and SolarCity after he already had enough wealth to last multiple generations, but he actually doubled down and invested nearly everything into these three new ventures in order to make them a reality. He says that after he made these investments to keep these companies alive, he actually had to borrow money to pay rent and also had to give the most inspirational speech of his life in order to keep the dreams alive.
Why would he do all this?
He has stated numerous times that two of his lifelong goals are to help mankind hedge our risks by becoming a multi-planetary species (SpaceX), and to help develop renewable energy sources (Tesla and SolarCity). Hefty goals, but goals he seems to believe passionately in.
Contrary to the idea that doing what you love makes work effortless, a passion puts you to work. It’s what you are willing to sacrifice lesser leisure and pleasures for.

at last I am leaving with this Quote on passion…
“If you get up in the morning and think the future is going to be a better. It is a bright day. Otherwise it’s not.”
