- Very few find their passion early in life. Most find it much later, if at all.
The world convinces us that we should “pick” a passion as early as possible and then settle.
I think all of your 20s should go towards discovering your passion.
- Passion isn’t about money. It is about how you feel.
We are led to believe that if you follow your passion, you will make a lot of money, which will give you a lot of happiness.
The most passionate people I know are simply content.
They are at peace with who they are.
- “Quit your job to follow your passion” is poor advice.
Financial stability is important.
When we sacrifice that to follow our passion, we put the pressure of making money on our passion, from day 1.
Our passion then becomes our necessity!
And ultimately dies.
- Passions don’t come in templates.
Stop looking for standard answers to what your passion could be.
Your context, your experiences, your habits, your idiosyncrasies – all of them lend to a passion that is uniquely you.
Don’t make someone else’s passion yours.
- Our failures direct us towards our passions a lot more than our successes.
Whenever we fail, we seek solace and inspiration.
It is during such moments that our potential passions emerge.
What we gravitate towards.
Where we can truly be ourselves.
And not have to pretend.
