There are high chances of getting tired of doing something as soon as it is not yielding as you desire. But the only thing that keeps you going farther beyond your imagination and people’s expectation is when you have faith in the thing you are doing.
Once there is belief in that thing you step up to do and achieve, a force tends to drive you towards that belief. The force is an energy that ignites the moment you reflect in your mind the journey before you. That’s the journey you believe so much in.
However, The force or energy towards the task before you that you believe in, is termed “PASSION”. And that energy towards which you don’t believe is termed STRESS. You can’t be passionate about a task or opportunity and end up not giving your best.
Let’s take a young man named Ade as a case study. Ade just got an opportunity to write for an influential man who owns an organization. This young man has written for people majorly as a volunteer severally without being bothered about fees even when he doesn’t feel too well.
Getting this opportunity to work for this man excited him so much that he wished to begin the work immediately and still cared less about being paid. Here, his passion for his writing talent and mastery kept him going till he finally hit the jackpot he wasn’t expecting! His effort (passion) was worth it.
Here I would clearly state that the password to survival is passion.
The energy you give into something you enjoy and believe in even if the outcome isn’t immediate, even at the point at which people criticize or make a fool out of you just because you chose to stick to the end.
Yet, you chose to be happy because you didn’t choose what people will be happy about. You rather choose what you wish to help people get ecstatic about on your terms, which is the best decision you can ever make to survive all odds.
In your thought, won’t she share with me how best to do this? You must be having this in your mind already. I’m sure to save you the stress of curiosity.
HOW TO MAKE PASSION THE PASSWORD TO SURVIVAL.
Identify what you truly enjoy doing:
What is that creativity you have an interest in? Every work or job involves creativity. You need to answer the question truthfully. You can choose to ask people around you, who will be sincere with you about how well you’ve done on the path or will be doing as regards your commitment level.
Ask yourself if it’s what people can benefit positively from:
I would always say, in all you choose to do, make sure you are helping people. If it’s sewing, for example, you should be sure you want to help people look elegant.
Add mastery to it:
People can patronize you because they like you, but what about those who don’t know you? They can only get to know you through your competence in the path you’ve chosen.
Continue to implement positively with it:
Your visibility towards your passion increases as much as you don’t stop. keep the energy going.
Await the jackpot that comes with the mastery of your passion:
And when the big figure in exchange for your products/service comes, then your success will be surplus visibility.
Before the last of these steps I shared, that’s awaiting the jackpot. You are sure to have a meaningful life before then.
You gain recognition with your mastery, blessings from the Almighty for impacting it, and become successful in life. Note, here you aren’t only going to be reaping the success of passion as a survival but also as a password to a fulfilling life.
