When you are passionate and you like what you’re doing, when it is what you want to do, not what you have to do, you always do it better because you’re doing it with love.
– John Paul Dejoria
It’s really sad that people try to make others believe their dreams are unachievable or not up to par. I think we should all be allowed to dream and tread our own path. The fact that someone’s passion isn’t good enough for you or society doesn’t mean it’s not perfect for them. Allow people be themselves, don’t try to box them in and turn them into conformists.
When you constantly bring someone down for what they believe in, you’re just setting them up for unhappiness and failure in the long run. Why should you be happy living your dream while you steal the freedom to dream from another?
We’re all different and so are our goals. We all need to come to terms with that. The end goal doesn’t always have to be monetary. Happiness trumps that any day.
If you’re doing anything in life that’s not making your heart sing, that’s not fueling your passion to get up on a daily basis, then you’re not fulfilling your role as a human being on this planet.
When you don’t follow your dream or passion, then what you work for will seem like a cage, albeit a golden one. Body without soul! It will result in being frustrated, listless, and completely devoid of purpose for existence.
