It is interesting to read, listen, hear and admire about passionate people. This leaves out with many questions unanswered. How does anyone go about the inner call? What it takes to complete the incomplete passion cycle? There are many factors and some of major factors are discussed –
Simple living and high thinking, an old saying and its first major stumble block to go ahead with passion. This is reflected in many successful people such as Mr. N. R. Narayana Murthy (Chief mentor of Infosys). In order to recognize the inner call, one has to be flexible. In wouldn’t be wise to follow the passion blindly. One needs to bring the clarity from clutter ideas or feel of passion. This career horoscope will bring out the strengths, limitations and personality of a person. Negligence in determination of strengths and limitations of many talented people has seen the failure. Well known personalities and organizations have delivered according to the audience wants. Recent examples are launch of Nano car and Karan Johar’s movie ‘My Name is Khan’.
It’s the journey to success that makes you what you are when you reach your destination than the destination itself. Therefore, it’s not enough to only have a goal in life but you must also think of the means to attain it. There can be many ways or approaches to your goal. The mantra to attain your goal with least fatigue and enjoy every action of yours is to find the approach that suits your requirements i.e. values, interest & skill set the most.
To understand this point let’s look at this example, Sita and Gita are friends and both want to top the class 12th board examination. Though their goals are same, they differ in the approach. While Sita learns fast through group studying and discussing topics with others, Gita learns quickly when she sits and study by herself, solve question papers and refers different books. If Gita instead of studying on her own joins Sita in group studies, at the end of the day, she would feel she had wasted her time, mentally fatigued & will not have moved closer to her goal. She is also not enjoying the process of learning, i.e. the path she has chosen to attain her goal. Thus determining your path to attain the goal is as important as knowing where your passion is and setting your goal in life.
