Sometimes it becomes difficult to decide whether to go with
life passion or professional passion.
Profession passion might be your life passion but your life
passion might not be your professional passion.
There is a thin line between the two passions, it is up to you
which one you choose!

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
Life passion is your LIFE! It keeps you going. It is what you
love doing. It can be painting, cooking, travelling, listening to
music or even dancing
But, turning your life passion into a career passion needs a lot
of determination and hard work.
There are a couple of points that will help you decide…
1. Work Plan
It is not easy to follow your dream. It needs a lot of planning
You need to have a proper agenda in mind with all vital stats
ready. Work on a competitive analysis to judge the opportunities
Keeping a back-up plan ready is a wise option.

3. Hard work
There is no gain without pain!
You have to struggle and work hard to make your dreams come
true. If you really believe in your passion, nothing and no one
can stop you from making it work in your favour.
Stay determined. Stay focused.

4. Low returns
Do not expect magic in a day!
The initial turn over will be lesser than your expectations. Do
not be disheartened by the result and keep trying and pushing
for the best.

5. Slow Growth
Yes, like any start-up the growth will be slow.
You need to be patient and look for opportunities to grow. There
will be hurdles but the end result will be worth all the trouble.

No matter how much time it takes to get the rewards, if you
pursue your life passion as a career, you will always be content

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in
your life. - Confucious
The only way to keep yourself happy is to love what you do. It is
not certain you will always get what you wish for.
If not your life passion, approach your work with passion. It is
not that bad after all
A couple of things you need to note before taking this up…
1. Hunt for passion
First step to figure out what you are passionate about. What
will keep you busy without working for a day?
If you are not happy with work, quit, and try something new.
Keep looking out till you find your work passion.

2. Stay interested
Just finding your work passion is not enough. You have to keep
the interest intact.
Keep exploring options of reviving your passion. Read, meet
people, attend workshops!

work and determination. Enjoy a secured life!

Your work passion + a secured job will always give you security.
Assurance is the key to success. You don’t have to worry about
anything else but just give your best to what you do.
