Passion for Work: Is Work According to Your Passion Very Important in Life?

““Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how'”
– Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl –

Find your passion, make money from it, and then you don’t have to work again for the rest of your life. That is often said and makes people think it is very important to find the passion of your life and try to make a living out of it to be successful in life.

For some people, it is very hard to find what your passion for work is in life. Finding the passion which can easily makes money is another level altogether. To find passion, sometimes someone needs to look on for years to know what does he/she likes doing and that something which can make money and that can really be time consuming for us who want to achieve success immediately.

Reaching success needs hard work and determination to go all the way to get what you really want in life. While passion for work in doing what you do in work can really help to achieve the success easier, it is not necessarily the most important and must have thing. I think as long as you keep working on what you believe will bring you to success, there is no need to be that your work is what you really passionate about to do in life.

Sometimes doing things over and over again can also kill what you like about the work. Success requires you to keep working on what you do until you find it. So there can be a case that when you like to do that thing at first but along the way because you keep doing it over and over again, you will get bored, lose the passion, and it will be not that exciting for you again to do that job. This is when the determination for you to achieve success is really important, as has already been told in the previous article.

But of course, you will need to try to be positive what you work on in order to be optimal to do that thing. You need to find the purpose of why you do this thing and you also need to find what good will it bring to the people who will use your work and those who are affected by the work that you do. That way, it can be easier to do what you do in order to achieve success, knowing that what you do has a strong enough why and it can bring a positive influence and impact to other people.

As long as you work hard enough in the thing that you believe can lead you to success, the success will come to you, even without so much passion for work in doing your work.

In my opinion, the most important thing to achieve your success is determination, not passion. Being passionate in doing what you are doing can help but it can be not necessary if you already believe in what you are doing and be ready to go all the way. It is so that when you find failures which give you problem to reach your success, you do not stop and instead keep working to find out how you can overcome that to further be closer to reaching your goal.
