Myths about Passion
There is a myth about passion. Many of you have heard about it too.
Everyone has a passion for doing something.
Everyone is born with expertise called passion, which he loves doing, and that’s the key to his success.
And when people start to find it many times, they find more than one thing they love doing, and they got confused between different things.
But it is not true. Anyone can have more than one passion if you are confused between two more things you love to do.
Then work on the one which can be more profitable, or you can make money out of it and another as a hobby.
Ways to find your Passion
Tell me the name of your favourite movie or favourite web series. I think you get your answer in your mind, and If not, there may be 2 or 3 movies you are confused in between.
But if you look deeply at your answers, you will find this are the movies you have watched, there may be movies you might like more than these movies, but you haven’t watched those movies yet.
