One of opportunities and the list goesOne of opportunities and the list goes

One of the hardest things about growing up is to
figure out exactly do I want to make out of my life. To say the least, it is
overwhelming. Not only for the fact that it shapes my destiny, but also it is
that one thing which can truly answer this obvious question – who am I? In
terms of choosing career path, people are influenced to take decisions owing to
various circumstances. There are family pressure, dreams of parents, the expectations
of society, lack of opportunities and the list goes on and on. We are being
brought up not as a human being, but as a machine. Sometimes, we ourselves
often forget that we have the ability to make our own decision and also the
fact that we’re human beings. While choosing a suitable career path, the term
which we most commonly relate to is success. According to most people, success
is generally associated with money and popularity, but that is not the true
meaning of success. What we truly mean by success is to achieve something most
desired. For a proper recipe of success, various characteristics like price,
aptitude, aspiration, brilliance, adaptability, perseverance, fortune are
widely recognized. But amongst these, passion is most likely neglected. Whereas,
in most cases, this ingredient makes the biggest difference. Most importantly,
if we’re passionate about the work we do, then there’s a better chance that
success will follow. Passion is a powerful feeling, a feeling which helps us achieve
literally anything more than we’ve ever imagined. All of us are in one way or
another, passionate for something. As we merge passion with our career, we can
set ourselves for a brighter future. The epigram “Do what you love” is the most
significant key responsible for one’s success their career. As Steve Jobs once
said, “People with passion can change the world for the better.” In fact, we
should not run after success. We should have high hopes, bigger dreams and it
is our sore responsibility to chase them. It is the door to our ‘Pursuit of
Happiness’. Only then, success will eventually follow us. I believe that when people
are passionate about something, they can rise to the occasions, thrive themselves
to work much harder and have more energy, their creativity flourishes and can
encourage others who work apace with them. Moreover, in the job arena, I cannot
expect to work in a smooth pace always. Times will be difficult, situations are
most likely to become worst. In such circumstances, it is passion that drives
me and helps me persist in the worst of times.
