Follow your Passion
Everyone has some or the other work to do in their life because work is necessary for survival. You can survive in the world only if you have done an honest day’s work or if you are into illegal activities. However, work isn’t the only thing that life depends on. There are a million things that go on with everyone’s lives. Everyone has hobbies and passions that they would like to pursue. You might want to party, to play a sport or to do anything that you like doing. Hence, one may either chose to balance things with their work life or one may chose to work in a field that is their passion.
For, if you work in a field that you are passionate about then, you will never be bored of your work. You will enjoy your work life and never feel stressed or tired of your work. This is a known fact. Moreover, you are sure to succeed if you are doing something that you love. There are enough examples such as Sachin Tendulkar, Lata Mangeshkar, Kobe Bryant, Amitabh Bachchan etc. Moreover, it is often said that failures are stepping stones to success. In order to succeed, it is necessary to fail once in life. This was fairly well proved by Chetan Bhagat in his successful novel titled “Five Point Someone”.
Listen to your Inner Voice
One doesn’t succeed at any and everything. You need to know what you are doing. If you are doing something that you don’t like, you will end up living a mediocre life and you will never receive staggering success. Listen to your inner voice. Your inner voice will always tell you if you are doing the right thing or not. Moreover, as you go day by day, you will start feeling happier and better. You will feel heavenly each day. In fact, it will not matter to you if you are paid or not. You are going to feel great about it.
Popular writer Oprah Winfrey says “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you”. She couldn’t be more right. If you are on the right path, you will feel your whole body agreeing with you, nodding at you. If you are unsure and feel the need to talk to someone then, you are probably compromising. It isn’t rocket science to figure out what you want to do. Once you find your calling, you will know that this is where you have to walk. Remember that, even on that path, you will have pitfalls, hardships and failure.
Question yourself to Find Out
Sometimes, you might be totally confused and have no idea about where you are going and what you are doing. However, something will happen at some point in your life that will click and you will know what’s going on. You will find your calling sooner or later. Until then, try things out. Try a hand at everything. Something or the other is definitely going to click. It might take a while to happen but it will happen sooner or later. You might not become a celebrity but you will get somewhere. After all, success has got nothing to do with being popular.
You need to question yourself constantly on what it is that you want to do. What exactly it is that you wish to achieve. What is it that you like doing more than anything else? What is it that you enjoy the most? Are you good at doing it? Can you do it for the rest of your life without getting bored? It isn’t necessary that you have to work somewhere. You might want to start a business. However, you will need to look at how qualified you are to run the business. For, it isn’t easy to run a business successfully.
Focus on your Passion
It isn’t necessary to be educated in order to succeed. However, education is knowledge and knowledge is never a bad thing. In fact, some of the richest and the most successful people have been school dropouts or university dropouts. Therefore, education is necessary for learning but it isn’t necessary for success. It isn’t something that will save your soul. However, it could be possible that you are passionate about education. Look into what you can do in that sector in that case.
There is no secret to success but you might want to follow your passions and do something that you like. Yes, simply liking something isn’t enough. Yet, if you focus on the right things, success will be yours in no time. It could be anything from a 9-5 job to a full-fledged business. It all entirely depends on you. Thus, concentrate and focus all your energy on something that excites you a lot and you will be on the road to success in absolutely no time. If you haven’t found out yet, help others out and sooner or later, something or the other will click you.
