If you’ve been advised to be passionate about ‘something’ in life to be ‘successful’, and you don’t know a damn about where your passions lie, don’t worry – because you’re not alone. There are several people in the world who’re exactly like you.

I mean, there’s no point in banging your head over discovery of your passion and interest or a cause you’d dedicate your life to. You’re completely okay. I mean, you don’t have to be the ‘engine’ of the train. You can just be and of the middle cars and be driven by the engines. Passion is for those who want to determine the directions, ‘follow a path’, change the world and so on. The rest of us can watch them in action, clap and appreciate.

Similarly, it’s completely okay to lay in the gutter doing nothing and enjoy the flow as long as you don’t choke it up. It’s your life, after all. FTW!

    Actually I agree to it too Big K. Sometimes it feels that these terms are made for marketing purposes. People are more likely to follow something that they do not understand but comes from so called highly reputed sources. Then they show pics of Sachin playing cricket when he was 2 year old. That does not mean that everyone who plays cricket can be Sachin.
    I would say that passion comes automatically when one is successful. For example :- If I have a 1 crore package, I suddenly realize that my passion is travelling. Now that’s because I have money to go to US, Europe .
    We must understand that its a very complex world out there and ONE unified theory won’t work for all.
    Would pray that I am successful too one day !!! 🙂
