To be successful in life or in your job, you need to be passionate.
Don’t settle. Find a passion that makes you want to get up every day and face challenges that life throws at you. Find the passion that makes you fight, the passion that makes you feel like you have achieved what you set out to achieve.
Studies show that we spend a third if not half of our lives working. Bummer, huh? If that much of our lives are wasted working, why not have a job we are passionate about and that we don’t even feel like is a job? Don’t settle for a job that just pays the bills. Go above and beyond, find that job that you enjoy going to each day. Having a passion can make all the difference in the world.
Steve Jobs once said, “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.”
Some people will say life isn’t fair. In my opinion, I think we call the shots. If you are willing to put in the time and effort, then life will pay you your dues and for the most part be good to you. If you chose not to put forth an effort then life can be rocky and unforgiving. Most of us prefer to be practical rather than passionate. Some think having a passion or caring about something so much is foolish or silly.
