You Call it Passion…

Let me start by posing a question…. Do you love what you do? or do you do what you love?

Apparently,Β for most of us, both questions do not apply. Funny/weird huh? So where do we belong??

Let’s just admit it, most of us you are not pursuing a career because it the reason your heart beats. More often than not, so many things other than our interests, influence the career paths we choose to take.

And no honey, this has nothing to do with me πŸ˜› I just want the rest of you to pursue your interests like me πŸ™‚

So now to help you answer my question….

There are three categories of people

Β Those who love what they do

I am pleased to announce that this is where I belong πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ . I know I know I am just a student and therefore has no idea what the world out there has in store for me and blah blah….

This category of people, I think are those who have discovered new interests along the way hence have come to thoroughly enjoy what they got themselves into.

I, for instance, is studying Computer Science πŸ™‚ beauty and brains huh ;-). I wouldn’t call anything I study an “interest” or “passion” or “hobby” or all those nice things people tell us before we join uni. I mean technology is evolving every other day so I can’t have a hobby that includes something that does not exist yet but will do in the next 3 years or so…you get what I’m saying…

So I could say I have come to love the ability to create endless possibilities.

Those who do what they love

This are the people after my heart πŸ™‚

I say this because they were able to strongly identify their talents and strengths at an age early enough to let them make a career out of it.

They didn’t wait to discover that they can be good at something then get to love it like me. Β Theirs was: love it, then get to be good at it and eventually make money out of it.

If I were to followΒ my “interests”, I would not be in a computer science class at all…

Those who are forced to love what they do

I’m sorry to say, this is where a majority of you lie..I know, the truth is not always what you want to hear πŸ˜›

This kind of people got themselves into something not knowing what they had signed up for. Reason..best known to them, but some obvious ones being:

  • Β MONEY! Because people in a certain profession are paid hefty salaries then you must also join that line of profession. Maybe you’ll get to love it..just maybe, or you just might frustrate yourself for life. Yes the income may be everyone’s dream but you dread waking up because it’s another day of frustration at your workplace. Β If that’s where you fall…*pat on the back*.
  • Your parent’s couldn’t let you waste those good grades so you have to pursue something that matches your grades which you may not necessarily like. But oh well, you have no choice but to “adjust your attitude” by force.

So where do you fall?? Food for thought….

You call it passion….is it???

    I do what i Love and i love what i do. Here is why; I do what i love…… I love cartoons and fashion so I went ahead and learned how to make myself clothes and took a course in animation and i love it.

    I love what i do because however much i would have loved to skip the business part of it all, a girl has to make money..so i learned to love running my own business…getting money doesn’t make it so hard to enjoy hehe!

  9. I belong to the first two categories I think. I will need to do a little more of soul searching though. This was an awesome read and good use of my time since I had insomnia while reading this
