There is nothing more important in life than having a passion. I can't tell you how important it is to dedicate every day to fulfilling your passion. Find one. I'm not talking about no..." I love to text message. Texting is my passion." Nah man. Find a true passion because once you become passionate about something, the value of your life is magnified by 10 times. Trust me. You see passionate people everyday. Just this week, we lost Bernie Mac. His passion was comedy and he was a legend. It's one thing to be funny and humorous but he dedicated his life to his one passion. You never saw Bernie Mac putting out a clothing line, or advertising alcohol, nothing. He just wanted to make people laugh. No greed for money or anything. Respect.
People grow up and realize "Okay. I need to find a good career and follow that. Good education to get good money." I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that mentality, but those are the people who's lives are very gray and drab. It's okay, get your money, boo-boo. Do yo thang.
It is best to choose a career where you can utilize your talents or work for what you are passionate about. There's no STOPPING you if you're following your passion.
I'm passionate about helping people and giving back so I chose to become a Pharmacist. Not for the money, but rather to help Underserved Communities. It's my passion.
"Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it.”
"Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.”
And the quote that I live by:
"The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.”
