Whenever we think about the word “Passion”, we start to imagine a person who has love and burning desire to achieve his goals, aspiration. It’s something that’s more than words. There are many persons including me have asked ourselves “Why are we not passionate towards our goal”?
There may be many persons who had tried out “The secret” formula, the power of visualization and imagination and all efforts but still everything turned out to be a case of sour grapes.
Let’s just do a little exercise:
“Think about any moment when you have thought and said it and felt the same that I wanna be CA”
Can you recall that moment?
Bang on! You hit the bull’s eye.
Aham... wait! This picture is not anymore clear in my eyes. It’s not my cup of tea now. I won’t say you to count all the benefits of achieving your aim. Because you may say I wouldn’t do that for all the tea in china.
So the actual point is what makes you passion keep going? Why can’t we just be consistent towards our passion?
There are 3 factors which leaves a deep impact on our passion:-
In short if any of the factors is missing in the coordination then surely you will lose your track. Let me illustrate this with a simple instance
Suppose you complete a big chapter after spending 5 hours on it. In between you missed your favorite show/ match or whatever. Your mind would ultimately calculate the cost and profit balance in subconscious mind. Afterwards, you will evaluate your performance from the ranking worse to excellent. In case if your rating is excellent, believe will boost up. Otherwise your shaken believe will ultimately affect your dedication toward success.
It’s getting little complicated to understand. Let’s make it easier
You are playing a game say skittles or temple run or Rune master. You play first game. You lose but you know you can do it better by having second bite of cherry. Now this time your performance rose. It’ll ultimately create your interest. The more and more success you achieve, the more you wanna spent hours on it. And ultimately you even forget your lunch while playing the game. But let’s say you didn’t succeed even on having second bite of cherry. After several failure attempts you would even give up on the game rather than going bananas for the same. And with passing of time, you may even lose your interest up to such an extent that you can’t even clear the easiest level whereas you were challenging yourself on the other side of the road.
The same case happens with studies as well but we don’t realize it. Rather than focusing on circumstances and other persons/ things and associate our performance with these factors. Let’s just introspect a little.
At the end, nothing is more enjoyable that getting back your lost passion. Because passion is not just a feeling, it’s a fuel which says your capabilities and you are beyond the circumstances.
