The Gentlemen’s Curb
Everyone is passionate about something, and that passion is usually first discovered when we are pretty young. It could be drawing, writing, singing, acting, caring for others, baking, building, or anything else. As amazing as it is to be passionate about something, there are so many people on the planet that don’t pursue the thing that they love and instead wind up in a job that completely sucks the life out of them. There are so many reasons for this, like having children, or your passion not really being considered a “real job”. Well, whatever your reason, I’m here to tell you to stop. Here are three reasons why you should pursue your passion.
You’ll Feel Amazing
People stop spending their time on their passions for a number of reasons and usually end up wasting this time in one way or another (usually in front of the tv). Doing something more productive, like honing your talent and pursuing your passion will make you feel much better about yourself in the long run. Furthermore, if you’ve known what your passion is since you were really young, you’ll have had this entire time to perfect your talent and skill, so I’d imagine that you are fairly good at it at this point. This can help to massively build your self-esteem. This is because it feels amazing doing something knowing that you’re good at it.
The Internet Makes It Easier
Okay, while the internet might not necessarily make becoming the new Jamie Oliver or John Legend a simple task, it does make it a lot easier than it was without it. On the internet, you can find lots of advice to help you improve your passion and help turn it into a career. With websites like Youtube it is now easier than ever to get your music noticed, and then you can use a company like Nationwide to make your music physical. If you’re into writing, you can get your stories and poems out there in a few simple clicks, and you can easily post pictures of your culinary masterpieces on social media.
You Only Live Once
In the grand scheme of things, you are only on the Earth for an incredibly short period of time, so why would you want to spend any of this time doing anything other than what you love? You never know what could happen tomorrow, and the last thing that you want is to leave this planet wondering what could have happened if you’d done what you truly loved. Pursuing your passion will help you to feel like you’ve lived a full and accomplished life, regardless of anything else that has happened along the way. Your passion will also help you to make a mark in the world and will ensure that you’re known for something that wants to be remembered for, rather than the job that you hated. It doesn’t matter how old you are or where you come from, if there’s something that you love to do, don’t let anything convince you not to do it. Live your life to the fullest.
