Your passion may be anything from establishing the biggest online retail store in future, or becoming the next Michael Jackson. It can be anything. After all, who knows about your passion better than yourself? Obviously no one else other than you.
But what if you realize one day that you had chosen the wrong path, or were living a life led by illusions?
It isn’t hard to get trapped in false beliefs when there are so many voices around you which confuse you each day.
My reason behind writing this post
In my life till now, I have come across only a handful of people who have some specific or clear goals. The ones who aspire to bring a change and are hell bent on accomplishing what they aim for.
There are a few dreamers who take their dreams seriously.
What I find common in many people is that they pursue some random idea and start working on it just because it seems attractive to them, regardless of whether they know it well, or whether they genuinely like it or not.
“True Passion isn’t driven by your desires, but pushed by the voice within”
True passion cannot be faked. Even if you somehow succeed and attain the highest place in what you have chosen, you won’t be much satisfied with the results. You’ll soon come to know that not only you had taken the wrong road but also have reached the wrong destination. The place where your being doesn’t give you joy.
However, since if you succeed at wrong things, you won’t miss your passion in the midst of your achievements. Yet, isn’t it better to be a bit keener from the beginning and reach the right place? It’s always worth it.
How a passion can be different from a dream
- Every dreamer takes up a dream and lives it.
- Slowly he faces difficulties and things turn out to be harder.
- Yet the dreamer goes on and slowly changes some things and adapts himself to the changes.
- Things either work out in his favor, or they don’t.
- Either the dreamer succeeds, or he fails.
“A dream is something you wish to achieve, but a passion is what keeps you going.”
The one thing which a passionate person won’t do
The one thing which a really passionate person won’t ever do is – Quitting
You and your passion
If you are currently doing something and calling it your passion, then be sure that you aren’t faking it. That it’s really your passion.
If you don’t do any kind of work what you can call your passion, its okay.
But you don’t feed your fake passion. Everything requires dedication and sincere efforts, even if they are at a wrong place. So better spend and invest your hard work in the right work.
A passionate person won’t ever quit. A passionate person won’t give up because, to him the work matters more than the outcomes. His passion itself is what makes him happy.
