Hey guys!!! We all have heard the word “Passion” in our life. Some people say that it’s crucial for success and some neglect its existence. You may also have heard that passion is crucial to have in order to succeed in any field. So, what does this mean? What is passion and why is it so important? Today, let’s find out what does passion mean and it’s importance in our favourite, Expeknow style.
Passion, as defined by Wikipedia is, “A feeling of intense enthusiasm towards or compelling desire for someone or something.”
Passion is a willingness to suffer for what you love. If you are passionate about something, it means that you are willing to suffer in order to do that work. It means that you are ready to put your short term pleasures aside for a work you love.
So, Passion is love for a work. A work which makes you happy is termed as your passion. Passion is what we can do whole day and night. Passion is something you do to feel happy. Passion isn’t something that needs money or validation, it just needs you. A passion is something you can do without any reward. Doesn’t matter whether you are poor or rich, busy or free, frustrated or happy, you will do that work because you love doing it and you are ready to suffer for doing it.
It can be dancing, singing, anchoring, giving speeches, writing, video editing, writing stories, making music, playing sports, reading books, teaching, studying about a topic, etc. Passion can be anything. It can be small as cracking jokes and big as doing research.
When you are truly mad about something, you can do that work when no one is watching you, no one is complimenting you and no one is giving you money. This is the ultimate level of love for a work. If you can get to this state with something, you can do that work anytime, anywhere and with anyone.
Passion is something like this. It’s what you love to do and It’s how you represent yourself. It’s how you feel joy. You don’t need money when you follow your passion. You don’t need rest when you follow your passion. Your passion gives you the fun, peace and happiness.
It doesn’t mean you can’t earn from your passion, you can. The thing is that, having passion for a work which can make you money is rare. There are very few people who have passion towards a work which can make money for them.
Suppose someone loves watching cartoons. This guy watch cartoons for more than 5 hours a day. Now, since he watch cartoons everyday for 5 hours, he would be having a great knowledge about cartoons which he can use to capitalise. He can use his knowledge to create cartoon shows, characters, review cartoons, work as freelancer, work as cartoon director etc.
So, there are surely ways which can help you turn your passion into your career but for that you need to learn from your passion. You need to have knowledge about your passion in order to make money out of it.
In short, passion is a work you love to do and for which you are willing to suffer. You don’t need anything in return for doing it. Passion automatically makes you happy. It’s something you can do for hours. Something that makes you energetic. It’s something that gives you joy.
Passion is important because this is the time where you can earn money from almost anything. Internet has provided numerous ways to earn money. So don’t think that you can’t earn from your passion. You can earn from your passion but for that you need to know what your passion truly is.
