Passion VS. Hype
I’ve never been one to dive into anything I am not passionate about or hop on the hype train just because. As a matter of fact, I try to stay very far away from anything that I consider to be “hyped up.” As someone who used to struggle with finding her place in the world and figuring out what direction to go in or what path I want to follow, jumping into something half-heartedly has never been in the books for me.
I have found that what sets you apart from someone on a similar path as you, is your passion. This passion comes with a strong sense of not wanting to settle for anything or put out anything mediocre.
So, how do you know if you are passionate? Here’s how:
You see the path you have chosen to follow as your baby, you want to nurture it. You always want to put your best foot forward. You study your craft, you put in your ten thousand hours, you study your mentors, you continuously do everything you can to develop your skill set and last but not the least, you don’t give up when the going gets tough.
I say all of this to say that if you find yourself doing something just for the sake of it or because everyone is doing the same thing, STOP THAT SHIT NOW! I promise you that you will get burned out so quickly and there will be nothing to fuel you because, you guessed it...there is no passion!
Take home lesson: Before you start anything, think really hard about why you’re starting it and be completely honest with yourself. PASSION WILL SET YOU APART AND KEEP YOU GOING!
