Six Common Myths of Passion

1/ Passion is found. The most common misconception is the belief that you can find your passion, that if you simply figure out what it is you like to do you’ll automatically have passion. If that were true all those engaged in an occupation of their own choice would be motivated to perform at their peak every single day.

2/ Passion is self sustaining. Over enthusiasm causes us to burn more energy than necessary, and eventually ends up in depression which prevents us from having the necessary enthusiasm. It’s a vicious circle that can happen to anyone even if we enjoy our work. If passion was self sustaining we would never find ourselves on this roller-coaster.

3/ Passion is exclusive. The idea that there is this one thing you were meant to do to the exclusion of everything else, is false.  If it were true we couldn’t adapt and survive in a variety of different circumstances. A few people can work at the same occupation and fulfill their life, but most of us will meed to do four or five or more.

4/ Passion is endowed as a talent.  The most dangerous idea in the world is that we are not all the same. Although each individual is unique each of us has the same potential for awakening passion, it’s built into our DNA as a species, it’s what differentiates us from the lower animals.

5/ Passion happens by chance. We expect passion to happen by chance magically mysteriously, and when it doesn’t we assume we haven’t found what we’re supposed to be doing. Necessity is the mother of invention, not fate. Passion is not the goal, passion is the means.

6/ You have passion or you don’t.  The myth that some people have more passion than others, is misleading. It’s one of the main reasons we think we need to do only what we’re good at, when we find that we don’t have the passion this belief stops us from exploring all the possibilities for success.
