I’m sure you’ve heard that adage, but it’s true. Personally, I love writing, so if I find something that pays me to do what I love, then it won’t feel like I’m working. It’s always a journey getting to your end goal, and I’ve loved every second of mine (career-wise). In the past, I’ve worked in social media. I love writing, so it made sense to start off with that, but down the road, I intend to be an author.
It’s a bit of a leap from social media to writing a novel, but apparently, it’s not a huge leap to copywriting from social media. I’ve done a little copywriting, which is closer to being an author, so I’m getting to my passion, but it might take longer than I anticipated.
Everyone wants instant gratification, and when it comes to careers, anyone would prefer the simple route, but I’ve learned the hard way; anything worth having isn’t easy, and my “recovery” certainly wasn’t easy nor was it quick. I definitely learned more about patience and hard work. I’m not sure I really knew much about either of those things before my most recent surgery.
Everything before seems like a super easy practice run in comparison: all my pre-surgery worries, doubts, fears, etc. Not only can our own perspective change, but your perspective on others’ lives is just that: your perspective. In reality, you have no clue what’s going on in that person’s life.
Anyway, I’m not an expert on passion, but I do know about hard work and patience. So if you add together hard work and patience with your passion, then that can equal success. Some other stuff goes into success too, but those are a couple of the main ingredients.
