He can who thinks he can by Orison Swett Marden, an amazing book. I started listening to this audiobook and specifically stumbled upon where he talks about finding passion in middle age( 25-40 age group). I can correlate here, felt uplifting, reconciled and encouraging same time. I guess I did not start with a great expectation and now I could not withhold myself mentioning it.
So there is this simple definition of passion I learned, “something you would do for free” Just in one line, simple to apply and it has the depth to understand. Passion is not a something one is born with or imposed upon and hoping it will grow with the help of right supplements at a time. The much I understand, it’s shaped by our choices, influenced by our environment and nurtured by education.
To have a fair chance, accessibility to the faculties, equal opportunities, and assistance to those who need it. To promote this ideology, implementation, and realization on the global scale is something I find myself passionate about.
We all get angry, disappointed, sometimes ashamed, sad by seeing the disparity, dishonesty, irresponsibility which can take people’s life, leave them devastated. Incidents which can easily be prevented still happens and yet we can not do much except to complain, debate over coffee or discuss at a dinner table, share it on Facebook, sign a pledge at most. Nothing happens this way, not really and we move on to the next breaking news, discussion, agenda and so on.
There is awfully much written about the subjects of our interests, we all have the information, and access to information but not the right knowledge. Unless we don’t acquire the knowledge of something we can not do much. Which requires some serious work at first, a dedicated time to educate ourselves, and then comes how do we apply that knowledge towards the passion. And then also do not expect to be a star, get a recognition for the efforts. Do the right thing, take a fair side. Remember it’s your passion we are talking about.
The idea which haunts me, is, if I am not doing(playing) fair if I am not reaching out for those who are underprivileged if my actions are not flagged with cordiality then my existence is nothing more than a cacophony in this bubble.
Only preaching would not help.
