One of the hardest things about growing up is tofigure out exactly do I want to make out of my life. To say the least, it isoverwhelming. Not only for the fact that it shapes my destiny, but also it isthat one thing which can truly answer this obvious question – who am I? Interms of choosing career path, people are influenced to take decisions owing tovarious circumstances. There are family pressure, dreams of parents, the expectationsof society, lack of opportunities and the list goes on and on.
We are beingbrought up not as a human being, but as a machine. Sometimes, we ourselvesoften forget that we have the ability to make our own decision and also thefact that we’re human beings. While choosing a suitable career path, the termwhich we most commonly relate to is success. According to most people, successis generally associated with money and popularity, but that is not the truemeaning of success. What we truly mean by success is to achieve something mostdesired. For a proper recipe of success, various characteristics like price,aptitude, aspiration, brilliance, adaptability, perseverance, fortune.
Butamongst these, passion is most likely neglected. Whereas, in most cases, thisingredient makes the biggest difference. Most importantly, if we’re passionateabout the work we do, then there’s a better chance that success will follow.Passion is a powerful feeling, a feeling which helps us achieve so much unlikeanything we’ve ever imagined. All of us are in one way or another, passionatefor something. As we merge passion with our career, we can set ourselves for abrighter future. The epigram “Do what you love” is the most significant key responsiblefor one’s success their career.
As Steve Jobs once said, “People with passioncan change the world for the better.” In fact, we should not run after success.We should have high hopes, bigger dreams and it is our sore responsibility tochase them. It is the door to our ‘Pursuit of Happiness’. Only then, successwill eventually follow us.
