Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. – Confucius
What is passion? This is the question we might have come across at some point in our lives. It is the driving force which pushes us to our potential and gives us the ability to do better. As dwellers of the modern society, we are packed with tons of responsibilities on our shoulders so much so, that most of us have at one point let go something that drives passion and settled for something that is ordinary in form.
Ask yourself these questions; Are you happy with what you are today? Are you satisfied with your life? Is the job you are pursuing currently, is challenging? If not, then you might have picked up something that is not passionate enough for you. You might have dropped that career which used to be your top most priority back in the days. Why? Maybe, because you thought it will not turn into a successful career? It might have, if you would have chased your dreams initially.
Let me share a story with you. It is a story about a boy born in 1984, he completed his schooling from The Walker School and did his majors in history at the University of Georgia. He bought a camera in 2010 and started taking pictures in Chicago while working as a bond trader. He lost his job and still did not give up his passion and love for photography. He moved to New York in the same year, 2010. He started taking photographs and developed a goal of photographing 10,000 people in the city of New York, developed portraits and stories around them and started a blog which was ignored in its first year but soon after that it became a talk of the town.
This guy is Brandon Stanton and is the initiator of “Humans of New York.”
If Brandon like others would have given up on his dreams and his passion he would not be what is he today. A successful person. A person who came up with a unique idea and played his cards well to make it successful. Something we do not usually find around us on daily basis. Although he got ignored, but he prioritized his passion well and did not give up.
Like him, you can do the same. Its time for you to Restore your Priorities.
