Last night, I saw a CNN Video on YouTube about a 15 years old Nigerian girl who is a PILOT! She started flying at the age of 12. And she said she had always had a passion for flying from an early age! All that was going through my head was at that moment was; “Mercy, at age 12 or even 15…what was your passion?” I honestly think my only passion then was Coke and Biscuit!
It’s amazing to find young people today that already have their mind set on exactly what they want to do and who they want to be. It makes me look back and wish I had discovered my passion much earlier in life! Are you like me? Ever wished you were one of those fortunate people who knew — at the age of 5 — exactly what they wanted to be when they grew up?
If you find yourself as an adult still searching for your passion, don’t despair. Many people — too many to count – are in your situation. It can be quite frustrating to think about passion if you don’t know what yours is. Passion is one of those concepts that is difficult to explain, hard to find and impossible to measure! It’s something that’s unique to each of us, with no one scale to determine it or map to guide us to it.
You cannot become rich or achieve any other kind of success in life if you don’t have passion in your life or passion about what you are doing. Be it the simplest thing or the most sophisticated thing, you need passion in order to succeed. Passion is what turns your lives in the right direction.
