“There is no greatness without a passion to be great, whether it’s the aspiration of an athlete or an artist, a scientist, a parent, or a businessperson.” — Anthony Robbins
Nothing great has ever happened without, imagination, dreams, action and passion. Every single achievement requires our passion. Love is a devout essence of any work we dedicate ourselves in, and the accomplishment is the investment of our perseverance and passion. So, if there is no passion in what we are doing, it becomes soulless and makes our life squeezed and ultimately buries our soul.
What is the greatest barrier in pursuit of passion?
Well, it is the most powerful word ever- excuse. If you are a person who is deeply connected to the innermost passion, there is nothing that can nothing can steer you off the track and stop you from going ahead in life. On the other hand, if your passion is thwarting, then you are definitely trapped with fear of failure. If there is no failure, there is no greater career; the number of failures will bring you a greater career. Every failure teaches you a valuable lesson that pushes you some steps towards your destination.
Many people fail to differentiate between interest and passion, they are two different things. We find so many things to be interesting in our life but they can’t be mistaken with passion. Interests change and fade in course of time but passion remains young and unchanged.
