Maybe being passionate about our work doesn’t mean what we think it means.
Passion doesn’t mean neverending love. Passion means…well, passion.
We’re all passionate about something. There’s something that we love talking about, thinking about, even doing — but that doesn’t mean it’s easy, or it’s perfect.
It certainly doesn’t mean it will make you want to work 70-hour weeks or sleep in your office.
In his post, Screw Finding Your Passion, Mark Manson writes that we need to stop searching for our passion, because we’ve already found it; what’s left is to stop fearing our passion.
When you love doing something, it’s worth the struggle. It’s worth the difficult days and long nights and sore muscles.
And that’s what will push you to be better. That’s the thing that will get you through.
‘…we need to stop searching for our passion, because we’ve already found it; what’s left is to stop fearing our passion.’ – That really got me.
