Let me tell you, how I’ve noticed what my passion is. I was into various fields like martial arts, designing, electronics, coding…but out of all these, I enjoy presentations… My first speech was in my 10th standard and that was a memorable day with lot many appreciations.
I was away from it for the next 2 years and when joined in my B.Tech, I’ve got various opportunities to present myself. I used to spend late nights working on them. I had never left a single chance to express myself.
My friends say… If you have put these efforts and this sought of interest in your regular academics you might have been a topper. I don’t do that because I don’t love that.
Of course, I was able to get a good career opportunity where I can live my passion. If you can choose a job where you can live your passion, status, growth, good package…sorry, great package and a good lifestyle, all these would be a bonus for us.
Because, when you love the job you do, you’ll be a perfectionist when you come to work. So, definitely, you’ll be giving the best outputs and the biggest thing though it is hard to work you’ll never feel tired because you’ll get involved in the task.
So guys try to know what your passion is…and work on it. Just follow your passion and that gives you all you need.
