What’s that one thing you are most passionate about?

“What is that one thing you are most passionate about in life?”

Don’t invite Tom and Jerry as answer to this query.

Or please don’t tell like “I am passionate about anything in life” or “I am not interested in anything in life, I just live as I am born”.  😉

Jokes apart, definitely there will be one thing that excites you in life which you love to do always, isn’t it? But yes, you can do it only if you knew what it was. (and yes, Not enough to have a passion, you have to have a work ethic too )

“Live with your passion”, this is something which we hear very often. But how..? It is not easy as it sounds.

Have you tried to uncover that passion and Leave a mark in this world?

    Ahah! And thanks for bringing that up. Now you’re talking my language! Passion and work ethic working together – well I finally found a way to make both come together: passion to become a compassionate being and the way to achieve that is to work at helping people, or in service to people. So, work united with passion.

      While working in an 8-6 environment we forget about our true passion. We just live with that, just flowing in that daily routine.. many a time can’t escape from that trap unless you put some conscious effort to understand your real interests…

On a lighter side, i am living with my passion only, but I am yet to fix one materialistic passion from my long list of goals..I have a vision in mind, maybe that will turn up as my passion in near future. It’s a question which I ask myself..So I am trying myself to have a fixed answer for that

    You rightly mentioned that we’ve all been told about being passionate about everything we do but this doesn’t really make any sense, not to me. I can be passionate about something which is practically feasible and materialistic. Although I like writing poems and entertaining people, I’m not passionate about these. And I’m still trying to figure out, still looking for that one thing which will drive me uphill and to the top. This was a great post indeed, thank you for bringing this up.

    I will admit here that I know what my passion is but have not done much to pursue it, or rather not done much to keep it constantly in my life. Having said that, it is still a part of my life; and that is dancing.
    Well not everyday do I do that but my second love, or as you say passion is reading which on the other hand I do every single day. My day does not end without reading a few pages of the novel I am reading.

    It is so nice of you to actually listen to us in a busy schedule..coming back to the question raised by you.. medicine was my passion not coz it is a white collar job it is coz the satisfaction you feel when your patients are free of pain is unexplainable..If your patient comes back to life after a major health issue definitely respect you to the core and he or she will include you in their prayers..
    I think those small moments will be the best moments in my life..
