Passion: a strong or extravagant fondness, enthusiasm or desire for anything.

No one is better than you. In life you will encounter many obstacles along the way. Don’t be discourage or lose hope and focus. Some people can look down on you because of your background or the level of your family. According to my experience people will look down on you because of the clothes you wear.

They are people who enjoys seeing others suffering. In life you must learn that , they are people who will wants to be better than you, they don’t like it when others do better than them. These types of people can’t see good in others, no matter how hard you try, you will always be bad in their own eyes, they always see mistakes and imperfection in others. They are selfish and cruel. Don’t let that kind of people discourage you.

They are bad and good people in this world. Sometimes people get angry when you do the right things, but when you do wrongs things they become happy and they will say ” what the hell he/she think was doing?” And that they will sit and watch to see where you will end up. That’s the people, yes I told him he must not do that, he should have done this and that blah blah blah blah blah. In all circumstances learn to be strong and accept all life challenges.

So what does it mean to follow your Passion and they also say, ” follow excellence and success will chase you. Everyone has a gift and God gave us different talents. Just like our body parts they work together in a wonderful ways. Every body part play an important role to make human being healthy and fit.

You will never hear the legs says, ” I want to be the eyes, or the eyes saying, that they want to be the legs. The legs will never compare themselves with the hands or the hands with the ears. They are working together as one to make a human happy and healthy. They don’t compare each other, they also don’t look down to each other. Let’s us learn from our bodies.

My question to you is, why us people we always compare ourselves with other people. God made us plain and simple but we like to make ourselves very complicated. And most of the time we don’t follow the golden rule, ” treat others as you would like them to treat you.”

If you know that you are good at something follow it, for example if you know that you’re good at music and singing is your Passion, follow your heart and your dreams put more time and effort in music, make research about it and work hard to get successful, if you really love something you will work hard for it. Never try to do something you don’t love because you try to please someone.
Ask yourself this questions,
Calls from within?

What do I really care about?
What do I love?
What do I feel passionate?
What I am good at?
What are my gifts, skills and aptitudes

But your gifts of character and personality too. How could you best use all that God has given to you and make a difference.

How can I discover my passion?
Where do I start?
What is a passion?
Do I have a passion?
Do I have particular vocation?
These are the questions you should ask yourself and make a difference.

Don’t stress yourself and follow other people dreams. Run your own race and in life you can’t fly without running and this is practically, no one can fly without running. Even in a football match you can’t score without the help of a fellow team mate. In order to reach our goals we need each other. Even Lionel Messi the best footballer in the world he need people also. The most important thing is FOLLOW YOUR PASSION” and find right people to help you achieve your goals. Just imagine if Lionel Messi was a boxer, or Julius Malema a footballer, just imagine the disaster there.

Follow your passion means to be what you are good at. They also say, ” when life gives you a lemon make a lemonade. It means that you need to take bad situations and make them positive.

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games 26 times. I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve been failed over and over and over again in my life. And that’s why I succeed- Michael Jordan

This is great motivation for people who wanted to give up on their dreams.

Thanks so much for taking your time to read this article share it with your family and friends. Thanks again
