Something is Missing.
You cannot become rich or achieve any other kind of success in life if you don’t have passion about what you are doing. Be it the simplest thing or the most sophisticated thing, you need passion in order to succeed.
Here we take a look at how important passion is and what different forms it must take in order to point our lives in the right direction, i.e. in the direction of super success.
When work, commitment, and pleasure all become one and you reach that
deep well where passion lives, nothing is impossible.”
You have a 9 to 5 job drawing a good pay, you have a good family and all’s well with the world. But deep inside, you feel like you are going nowhere. The job isn’t moving upward either. You are actually stagnating in your career and mentally and spiritually. Something is missing.
Passion. The one quality that textbooks and instruction manuals and company procedures will never talk about. Everyone is in such a hurry to make you fit perfectly into the machine like a well oiled gear, that they forgot you are a living,
feeling human being. Even you have forgotten.
Ask yourself. If I had a million bucks in the bank, what kind of work would I be
doing? Would I chuck this humdrum job and move on to something really exciting? Something that I have always wanted to do? Then ask yourself – why am I not doing that right now?
Is it because of peer pressure or because I don’t want to move out of my comfort zone? Don’t want to rock my boat? You are half asleep in your boat already and in a few years, you could be put out to pasture! If the boat rocks now, you could be jerked awake and come to your senses. Your passionate senses.
In the aftermath of the recession of 2008, millions of people lost their jobs. Many
of them took up new vocations and suddenly found that they were finally following their dream. Many of them are now highly successful in their new found professions.
You don’t have to wait for dire straits to rock you out of your present mediocre
life. You can decide right now, that you want to live and work passionately and make your life worthwhile. The Highway of Passion is an amazing ride.
