I once asked a guy ”what’s your passion?”
“Football”, he replied me.
I looked into his eyes and could see it in him.
”After football, what other skills do you have and would love to do?”
“Football”, he replied again.
I was startled, I thought he didn’t get my question.
“Football?” I asked again looking puzzled.
“Yes, after football, it’s football again”, was his reply.
His statement shows he is passionate with it.
“May God guide us through”, was all I could say.
Well, passion can really cause a great setback in your journey of life if not followed.
As a friend would say; “not following your passion is total bankruptcy”.
Your passion is what makes you happy the most, brings confidence, productivity and creativity.
Mine is writing, what’s yours? Hmmm.
Every single human has what he/she is passionate about.
You might be an amateur in it now but trust me, you will be better at it each day. Just be consistent and have great affection for it.
Don’t wait till all you need are ready before starting. No, start with the little you have as others will be ready along the way.
Passion is just like you being in love. Imagine your passion in the position of your partner.
The great affection that will be transferred to it.
Therefore, follow your passion. Don’t mind the income but the happiness, excitement, freedom, lightheartedness and all you will gain from it.
Don’t venture into something because your friends are doing it or because they are making it.
No, if you do not have the great feeling of love fo it, then leave it for those who value it.
Therefore great minds, follow your passion and build it on the platform of love.
